As a family, we generate a lot of energy, from the kids to our baking business.
We try to keep track of how much energy we used but with so much activity, this can be a difficult process to keep track of.
That’s why we are sharing this post, to give you the best smart home devices to save money and use less energy with everyday household utilities.
The list below is a great start using simple smart home tools in your home.
We are all about saving and investing, so, the more energy-saving tips we can provide to our readers, the greater chances we can help you save money on your everyday utilities as a result.
Energy Saving Smart Home Devices
One of the first things people do when coming home from work is adjusting their thermostat to a number where you can get feel comfortable and relax when you walk in but this unconscious routine can consume a lot of energy.
There are ways to reduce the thermostat energy you use, ranging from a simple behavioral adjustment to investing in a smart thermostat.
A smart thermostat can help you save money and energy by helping you make proactive decisions about heating and cooling by offering you recommendations on when to cut back on cooling and heating your home to save on your utility bills.
The bonus is many energy companies offer rebates and discounts for customers who opt-in for a smart thermostat.
Looking to save money on your next light bill? If the answer is Yes. Then you should buy a smart bulb. Smart bulbs are energy-efficient LED bulbs.
LED continues to be the go-to product for many homeowners and for good reasons. They last longer and they use way less energy than incandescent bulbs.
According to USA Today, Incandescents also don’t last as long as CFLs and LEDs. The typical incandescent bulb lasts about 1,000 hours, while a 15-watt CFL bulb lasts 10,000 hours and a 12-watt LED bulb lasts 25,000 hours. In other words, incandescents last about a year while CFLs can last 10 years and LEDs up to 25. All told, your energy costs can be 25%-80% less by switching to energy-efficient bulbs, according to Energy.gov.
One of the best smart bulbs on the market is LIFX Mini Bulbs. You can start off with the LIFX Starter Kit that comes with the Day & Dusk smart LED bulbs and no hub required.
LIFX mini controls everything from Amazon Alexa, Google Home to the Apple Homekit app, and much more
Do you question yourself after leaving the house if you left the fan, tv, or lights on while you were rushing out of the house?
This is a constant problem I am always facing while running out to the door to work. If your home is connected you don’t have to wait until you get home or do a double check before leaving.
Just logging into your app using your phone and you’ll be able to save money, energy and reduce your anxiety in one move.
If you’re prone to such activities every morning adding a couple of internet-connected smart plugs to your home makes even more financial sense.
Especially for that appliance that is a possible fire-starting device when plugged into a wall outlet can keep you, your family, and your home safe.
I can’t stress enough just how great WeMo smart plug is. Not only do you get an internet-connected plug but you also get technology that is constantly evolving.
Also, the unique side plug design makes it convenient to fit any electrical outlet without obstructing other socket’s wall. I actually have a whole article on WeMo smart plug as well.
