What if you could use smart home products to improve your family’s security, safety & enjoyment levels? Here are key everyday examples of how smart home automation could work in your life:

1. Use your phone to remotely view your home via a smart camera, arm your security alarm, and adjust your lights and thermostats while away from home.

2. Be reassured that your home and family are safe and protected, whether you’re there or not.

3. Receive text and email alerts on your smartphone once an intruder enters your home or smoke is detected.

4. Save up to 10% on your energy bills.

Smart Homes can deliver the above benefits, but you are faced with choosing between a myriad of smart device brands, trying to piece everything together, and often the slightly overwhelming feeling of transitioning to a smart home. However, there is good news! Introducing the How to Make a Smart Home course.

This course will take you from having no smart devices installed in your house to living in a fully functional smart home. The course begins by helping you to make the right decision as to how to improve your Wi-Fi to support your new smart home. Next, you will study digital assistants in the context of a smarter home. In addition, you will learn how to use smart home alarm devices to improve home security levels. The course will then discuss various smart lighting options. Following this, you will be taught how to implement smart thermostats, to reduce your energy bill. In addition, I teach you about utilizing smart cameras to improve family security levels. Following on from this, I show you how to install a number of safety devices to reduce risks against fire and carbon monoxide poisoning.  The final module then explains how to unleash the magic of smart homes by implementing various types of automations. Alongside this, the course comes with a series of informative questions to help your revision and study, before you take the final assessment. Resources are also included in this course, including The Essential Guide to Smart Home Safety & Security Book.

Whether you’re confused about how to get started in ‘smartifying’ your home or you need some guidance, I’ll share what I’ve learned from installing various smart home systems over the years.  In other words, I take the guesswork out of creating your very own smart home.
