A smart home gives you ultimate access control and security.

Technology is continuously evolving. In a world full of smartphones and smart cars, it should come as no surprise that smart homes exist. But what are they? Chesapeake Systems Service, Inc. is here to inform you on what a smart home is, and how it could benefit you to invest in home automation.

What is a Smart Home?

A smart home is a home that is equipped with electronic devices that can be accessed remotely and controlled automatically via a phone or computer. These devices could include lighting, heating, water, entertainment, alarm systems, and more. Smart homes are a result of home automation, and they are safer and more secure than the average home.

What Are The Benefits of a Smart Home?

Living in a smart home gives you ultimate security, connectivity and access control to various elements within your home. Because smart homes provide an extra layer of security, one of their main benefits is increased comfort within your home and priceless peace of mind. They can also help you cut costs on your energy bill. A smart home can be integrated with your home security system, smart thermostat, whole house audio system, and more. This means you can stream music room-to-room within your home, adjust the temperature setting on your thermostat, turn lights on and off, access your camera surveillance picture, and get security alerts all with the touch of a button.

Security Alarms for the Forgetful Homeowner

Security alerts are extra helpful for the forgetful homeowner. You can opt to get email or text notifications about the status of your home in just about any situation. Is your temperature too high or low? Has the back door been open for a long time? Is the garage door open after 11 p.m.? All of these situations and more can trigger an alert from your system to send you a notification and allow you to rectify the problem from a remote location for increased safety.


Investing in a Smart House can provide you with both state of the art fire protection and home security essentials. If you think you might be ready to investigate into Smart House technology, then give us a shout. We can help you get thinking.
