We’re living in the future, where your smart home devices can adjust the temperature of your home — even before you walk through the front door! — make you coffee in the morning through the use of smart plugs, and arm your security system with the touch of a button. 

It may seem a bit daunting to create a DIY smart home set-up that’s personalized for your needs. There’s a ton of choices, and it’s hard to tell what will work cohesively with your existing devices. SmartMove’s got you covered: you can find a great smart home package along with all the utilities you need from cable to Internet to home security. 

For a seamless system, providers like Mediacom, Xfinity, and Cox offer bundles to make sure your home is smart and efficient. SmartMove’s tools can get you all the specifics and offers in your area, but let’s dive in to how you can utilize cutting edge tech to automate your home.

Smart Home Security System Integration

There are a few areas of your home automation that are a no-brainer. The first is a smart security package. Mediacom’s most basic package includes a motion sensor, door and window sensors, and a touch screen controller to give you full control over home monitoring. That way, you can keep your family safe — and catch your kids sneaking in after breaking curfew. 

The motion sensors can be adjusted to account for family pets, and can help give you the warning you need if you’re away from home and something unexpected is happening. 

Depending on your needs and the layout of your house, you can mix and match customization options to add things like smart locks, smart cameras, and even smart doorbells that have cameras so you can see who’s at your door — or catch package thieves in the act. 

Smart Home Temperature Controls 

Smart electrical outlets and smart thermostats are a great way to control your home in a variety of ways. 

Companies like Xfinity and Cox offer apps (Cox Homelife and Xfinity Home) that allow you to control your home from your phone or tablet, so you can adjust your smart home settings without leaving the couch. This is also helpful if you leave the house and want to make sure your doors are locked or your heat is turned off. 

Some smart home packages come with heat and water sensors, which can be critical to alert you to fires or flooding in your home. In addition to being able to pull up smart home cameras to monitor what’s going on, you can set up 24/7 professional monitoring so that if you’re always covered. 

Customize Your Smart Home

Working with your cable company to set up your smart home means that you’re getting a professionally installed setup that’s customized to your needs. That way, you can rest easy knowing your home will work for you. 

Your cable company will also hook you up with the right technology for your home. Xfinity partners with companies like Nest, GE lighting, and Kwikset to provide different smart thermostat, smart lighting, and smart lock needs for their customers. 

Use SmartMove’s tools and find out what your home can do for you — and your curfew-breaking kids.
