[:en]Do you have a habit of leaving the stove on, and you’re stuck worrying about it all day? Are you always reminding your kids to turn off lights when they leave a room? Do you keep the air conditioning on for your pet when they’re left alone for hours at a time? Then it’s time to have a smart home system installed. A smart home system automates your home for your protection and energy reduction.

From the experts at Fluent, here are some ways smart home systems reduce your carbon footprint:


Smart home systems notify you if any unused appliances are turned on in your home. With these alerts, you and your family will become aware of the amount of energy you’re using and be able to control all your synced electronics with the touch of a button on your tablet or phone.

Turn Lights and the HVAC Off

Many will leave a light or two on before leaving the house for the day in an attempt to show potential burglars that someone is home. But to save on this major waste of electricity, you can simply adjust the lighting through your mobile device when it starts to get dark. The same can be said for your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. If you want to return to a refreshing home in the summer, or a cozy one in the winter, you can make the adjustments when you’re on your way home. Smart home systems will also make taking care of your pet easier when you’re away. You have the option of scheduling adjustments, so you can focus on more important things.

Garage Door

Maybe you forgot to close the garage door, or perhaps the battery in the remote died. Either way, your garage door was left open as an invitation to burglars; and, not to mention, it’s letting all the air conditioning or heat out. But with a smart home system, you won’t ever compromise your home’s safety, or get a high-energy bill ever again since you will receive notifications about the door immediately.
