Another Smart Idea from Shane Homes

Homeowner Tips + Tricks July 1, 2019

On June 1st, we unveiled our new Smart Home Advantage package! This exciting, state of the art home automation package is now standard in all newly constructed paired and single-family homes. 

Wondering what this means for you? Join us as we go through the features of our new system.


The Basics

Intelligent Spaces by Visions Electronics will provide the Google and Nest product lines that will be installed, quality checked and serviced by their home automation specialist.


In addition, our ‘Love it or Customize it’ formula ensures you are able to further modify your homes’ performance by visiting their showroom and selecting upgraded products and/or services if you so desire.


The Features

Google Home Minis with Mounts

Are you curious about what life would be like with an assistant? Our Smart Home Advantage comes with Google Home Minis! These handy helpers are here to make your life easier. They can play music, answer trivia questions, create calendars and more!  No more tying a string around your finger when you want to remember something. Google will write notes and keep track of events, giving you reminders when a due date is approaching. 


In addition to this, if you don’t have time to read the paper or scroll through the headlines in the morning, ask Google to do it for you! It will tell you everything from weather, news, and finance- all you have to do is ask.


Your new home’s automation technology is designed to work together to give you peace of mind. Some of our safety features include the Nest Yale Wi-Fi Smart Lock. No more getting out of bed to double-check if the front door is locked! All you have to do is pull out your smartphone and lock it from there, allowing you more time to catch those much needed Zzzzzs.


Before you get up in the morning, change the temperature of the room using your Nest Smart Home Learning Thermostat. Wake up to a nice, warm bedroom in the winter, and keep cool in the summer. As a bonus, this thermostat learns what temperature you like and builds a schedule around you. Studies have shown that is has saved people an average of 10% – 20% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills! 


Even with the perfect room temperature, it can be difficult to wake up in the morning. That’s why we love the Lutron Caseta Kit, which allows you to remotely control the lighting in your home. With simply the press of a button on your remote or smartphone, you can control multiple lights in your home. Slowly raise the brightness in your bedroom until your body naturally feels more awake! (Or help your partner wake up by turning the brights on all at once!)


Don’t forget to brew some coffee so it is ready when you get to the kitchen! Smart Things Hub and Z- Wave Plugs let you monitor and control connected devices in your home. Compatible with various Wi-Fi products, you can now control portable electronics such as coffee machines over Wi-Fi!


Today, a lot of people prefer to shop online. But often packages can arrive when we are at work or otherwise out living our busy lives! That’s why your new home will come complete with the Nest Hello Video Doorbell with a Camera! With 24/7 streaming you can check who is at your door any time of the day! Unlike traditional security cameras with their grainy images, this security feature delivers HD video and bright, crisp images, even at night. It’s designed to show you everything at your doorstep – people head to toe or packages on the ground. 


The Advantage

Technology is a combination of hard work and imagination. It is the product of dreamers with a passion for making the world a little better, one step at a time. When we take advantage of technology that is designed to make our lives easier, we find more time in our days. Time to be with family and friends, or explore our hobbies and interests. We hope that you will love our Smart Home Advantage as much as we do and that it will help make your days and nights a little easier.
