You’ve heard the phrase “work smarter, not harder.” Here are quick, easy smart home upgrades you can knock out in one weekend.
Interested in smart home technology, but don’t want to spend a lot of time and energy setting it up? These quick smart home upgrades provide the benefits of a smart home—such as comfort, convenience, and security—without taking up your resources. Here’s a look at four smart home devices you easily can install in one weekend.
1. Upgrade the Front Door
Add a smart door lock and a video doorbell, and in less than an hour you can lock and unlock your door from anywhere, and see and talk to anyone who arrives at your home.
From letting in friends or family members when you aren’t home to locking the door from the comfort of your bed, a smart lock is one of those small upgrades that once you’ve experienced, you won’t want to be without.
Most smart locks replace the whole lock, but the August Smart Lock replaces just the deadbolt, taking less than 10 minutes to install. It uses your phone’s Bluetooth to recognize you and unlock when you arrive—plus you can still use your keys (not the case with all smart locks). An option to access it remotely using Wi-Fi allows control from anywhere.
