New technology and local dealers have made smart home technology affordable, easy to own and useful for everyone. Recently, emerging technology has become even more tangible with Apple’s recent launch of the Apple Watch. Businesses such as Alarm.com and Honeywell have kept up with this trend by creating their own versions of the apple watch app in direct relation to your smart home.
The Alarm.com and Honeywell apps have the ability to connect the devices in your home for an integrated smart home experience. With these apps, you now have the ability to control your smart home directly from your wrist. Lights can be turned off and on, garage doors can be opened and closed, thermostats can be adjusted, and security systems can be armed or disarmed. Even further, you can see real time view of what is happening around your home from your watch! The Geo-Services aspect of the apps track your location in order to alert you when you have left home without arming your security system, locking your doors, or turning off your lights—all customizable, of course.
The smart home should have the capability to turn consumer challenges into simple solutions in a powerful way; these new apps allow this. So dealers, educate your sales people about emerging technical trends like the apple watch app from Alarm.com and Honeywell. Doing so will give them the ability elaborate on the subject when needed, and perhaps get one step closer to closing the deal. Read more about these apps here and here.
