Top technology trends for your Keller home for 2015 and beyond

Home is where the heart is, and now thanks to home automation, it is also where technology thrives. More people want smart home features that let them control their spaces while increasing energy efficiency and cutting waste in their Keller home.

In North Texas, the rapid growth of smart home technology is closely connected to the large number of people who own mobile devices. Today most American adults have a cellphone, many of those have a smartphone, and tablet & computer use are also prevalent by North Texans of all ages.


Home connectivity is no longer a novelty its quickly becoming commonplace, allowing you to stay connected to your Keller home from near or far. Here are the top trends in smart home technology today:

Wise water usage

More people are aware of their water footprint and are taking steps to control H2O usage in their homes. Likely to Kramers dismay, Low-flow toilets and shower heads are a start, but technology is taking water usage and conservation to new levels. There are innovative water treatment systems enhanced by Wi-Fi technology. The systems soften and treat your water while monitoring water usage, letting you know when softener salt is needed and sends you alerts if potential issues are detected, such as a continuous water flow over a period of time or excess water usage above normal usage. This allows you to make adjustments to save money on utility bills, plus provides peace of mind that problems can be corrected before expensive repairs are required on your Keller home. This is on top of the inherent savings water softeners provide in hard water areas, reducing the amount of soap and cleaning agents needed and saving on energy bills.


Heating and cooling control

Heating and cooling accounts for a good portion of the energy used in your Keller home. Its no wonder North Texas homeowners want tech-savvy solutions to cut bills. Programmable thermostats are affordable and readily available, and when used correctly, they can save homeowners a significant amount of money per year in energy costs. Some smart thermostats even allow temperature adjustments to be made remotely from smartphones while providing energy statistics to help you control costs. Zoned heating and cooling systems are also gaining traction, meaning that you can heat or cool certain parts of the home based on where you spend the most time.

Smart security systems

For years, home security alarms consisted of sensors that detected break-ins and responded with loud sirens. Today, security systems literally put a homes safety and efficiency in the palm of your hand. Video cameras and alerts let you know when children arrive home from school or when packages are delivered. Fire alarms integrated into the system alert you of smoke, fires and the presence of carbon monoxide and other poisonous fumes. 

We live in a digital age and North Texas homeowners are starting to embrace smart home technology for everything from water treatment to home safety.  The result? Homes are more efficient and secure, and homeowners are conserving natural resources while saving money on utility bills. Perhaps its time to hop on the bandwagon and consider intelligent improvements to your Keller home? There are definitely benefits and youll have the smartest home on the block.
