    "Eric and his crew did a masterful job of painting the walls to perfection and making sure that our chestnut woodwork was protected. He oversaw the refinishing of our living room and dining room floor that now glows. He fixed all sorts of things that got our beautiful home ready for sale. All of this Eric did with heart!"

    Going along the theme of apps for home security, I'm going to show you an app that allows anyone to control their car from their smart phone. Now when I say "control" I dont mean actually drive it...that's about 5 years down the line. This app, called SmartStart, is a breakthrough in home and car security. It has two features: car and home. Let's say it's a cold morning, one of those brutal ones Clevelanders know about.

    Instead of going outside to warm up your car, you press the SmartStart button and it will start your engine (doors still locked of course). Once you're in the car, you press another button, and the app switches from controlling the car, to controlling your home security. You can set the alarm from inside your car using the app. Let's say you need someone to get into your home or car, and you're away. Instead of driving all the way back to give them the keys or password, you press a button, and the security shuts off, or the car unlocks. I feel that this is one of those apps we can't pass up. It makes everything so much easier. To learn more about it, go to the SmartStar Website.
