  • A Fully Automated Home of the 21 Century: Easier Than You Think

    [caption id="attachment_8427" align="alignleft" width="300"] At your fingertips: every task from climate control to feeding the fish[/caption]

    In what seems like science-fiction, 34-year-old Savan Kotecha has made his home almost fully automated; being able to operate anything from the window shades to security cameras all from his iPad. Home-automation companies have been in huge demand in the past few years, with a focus on the ability to control devices from mobile devices. An estimated 87% of home-control devices use Apple products as the control device for their systems.

    While this may seem like playthings of the rich and those with idle money, systems such as the Nest can be installed to learn your habits and help you save money by turning down the heat when you're not home and turn the heat back up when you're on the way home. With a 9-to-5 job, that can be up to 7 hours per day (35 hours/week) where your furnace is working much less than it needs to, without detriment to your comfort or lifestyle. And like the fully-automated homes, the Nest can be controlled from any smartphone.

    And for more tips on upgrading your home, take a look at our blog. And if you’re looking for a house for rent in Cleveland, OH, take a look at our Cleveland rental properties and call Reilly Painting and Contracting for all your Home Mechanic and remodeling needs.
