Smart Home Installation Los Angeles
In today’s digital age of increasing connectivity, the latest and greatest in-home technology innovations are “smart home” devices that allow you to monitor and control your home environment, wherever you are, from your smartphone. At Delta Quality Electric, it is our pleasure to serve the electric needs of the greater Los Angeles area, including the best smart home installation Los Angeles has to offer.
Save Energy with a Nest Thermostat That Learns Your Schedule
How many times have you accidentally left the heater or air conditioning running full blast while you were out of the house all day, only to kick yourself when you got home and realized how much energy had been wasted? Are you constantly struggling to maintain the balance between keeping your home at a comfortable temperature and keeping your energy bill low? The Nest Thermostat is the smart device that learns your schedule and automatically adjusts to suit your lifestyle and needs. It also allows you to activate heating and cooling systems from your phone, so that your home is already at a comfortable temperature when you arrive.
When you install the Nest Learning Thermostat in your home, you spend the first week using it as you would a regular thermostat: adjusting the temperature throughout the day to keep you comfortable and fit your routine. Nest then uses that information to program itself. Now that it knows what temperature you prefer while you enjoy your breakfast, it will start adjusting while you’re still in bed, and it will learn your routines to save energy while you’re not home. Going to be home earlier or later than usual? Adjust the thermostat, wherever you are, from your smartphone.
As if the convenience of this system weren’t reason enough, Nest has been shown to save consumers 10-15% on their heating and cooling expenses. Some energy companies will even help pay for the system or offer rewards in exchange for saving energy.
Rachio Smart Sprinkler: Water the Garden from Your Phone
With the Rachio Smart Sprinkler, you can forget about the days of having to run out to your garage or basement every time you wanted to activate or turn off the sprinklers, or of anxiously monitoring the weather forecast to figure out when it’s time to water the lawn. This smart sprinkler system allows you to set and adjust daily, weekly, and monthly watering schedules directly from your phone, but it also does so much more.
Input some simple information about your yard’s soil type and the kinds of plants growing in your garden, and the Rachio Smart Sprinkler will use this information to optimize efficiency in your watering schedule. It will also monitor your local forecast to avoid unnecessary watering before, during, and after a rainstorm.
USB Wall Outlets to Charge Your Phone
Everyone has a smartphone these days, and trying to keep track of the USB adapters for your power cords can be exasperating. USB wall outlets eliminate the need for those easy-to-lose cubes by allowing you to plug the USB end of your phone charging cord directly into the outlet for easy, convenient charging that is always available.
The Nest Protect Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detector
In case of a fire, you may have only minutes to get your family out safely, and an effective smoke detector is the best way to keep everybody safe. Unfortunately, smoke detectors can also be annoying to maintain and prone to disruptive false alarms. Also, a smoke detector only works if you’re home to hear it go off: if no one is home when a fire breaks out, a conventional smoke detector won’t be any help.
The Nest Protect system eliminates the downsides to traditional smoke detectors by connecting all detectors throughout the house both to each other and to everyone’s smartphones so that someone will always know if there is a problem. Instead of a blaring, nonspecific alarm, Nest Protect speaks in a human voice, alerting you to the nature and location of the problem, wherever you are. If you know it’s just toast burning or an overcooked lasagna, you can silence it immediately from your phone with the push of a button. You can also run tests of the entire system from your smartphone, and the system automatically checks itself as frequently as 400 times a day.
No more dreaded chirping noises at 2 am when the battery starts to run low: Nest Protect will let your phone know well before it’s time to change the battery. Don’t worry, though – that won’t happen for several years. In addition to smoke, Nest Protect also detects carbon monoxide, the invisible and odorless gas that can be deadly when inhaled for prolonged periods.
Wireless Smart Lights and Dimmers
Multiple electronics companies have produced smart lighting systems that allow you to turn lights throughout your home on and off with an app on your smartphone. Never worry about leaving the lights on when you go to work again – if you’re not sure, just check on your phone and use the app to turn them off. These smart lighting systems can also be used to dim the lights to different levels and to set regular schedules for your lights that match your daily routine. For example, you can say goodbye to that loud, blaring alarm clock, and wake up instead to the lights in your room slowly brightening. Motion detectors can make your home lighting even more automated by turning the lights on when you walk into a room and turning them off when you leave.
