What if we told you there’s a smart home monitoring solution that can offer families peace of mind for the price of a morning cup of coffee?
Researching home monitoring systems can be a daunting task. Many of us struggle with uncertainties surrounding compatibility, connectivity, and whether or not the effects of home improvements are worth the initial investment. That’s where a DIY solution such as ecobee Smart Security is one that families may want to consider as they navigate through the “new normal” this school year.
ecobee Smart Security is a home monitoring system that’s designed to grow according to the needs of your family. Mix and match ecobee devices to find the perfectly curated blend depending on the size of your home and desired security coverage. With plans starting at only $5/month(US) or $7/month(CA), smart home monitoring is accessible to more households than ever before, leaving Moms and Dads with meaningful options to lessen some of their everyday parenting concerns.
Know Who’s Home and What’s Happening
If you don’t already have one of our award-winning ecobee smart thermostats, the easiest way to invest in your peace of mind is by purchasing the <a href="https://www.ecobee.com/en-ca/bundles-exclusives-offers/total-home-comfort-and-security-bundle/" target="_blank">Total Home Comfort and Security Bundle. Consider it the connected home starter kit that has everything you need to get started with ecobee.
The Total Home Comfort and Security Bundle includes:
- SmartThermostat with voice control (including a bonus SmartSensor)
- SmartSensor 2-pack
- SmartCamera with voice control
- SmartSensor for doors and windows 2-pack
The truth is, no one knows your home better than you do. The benefit of this bundle is you can decide which areas are the most important for comfort and security, and adjust the devices accordingly.
For instance, if your little one has a habit of opening cupboards or doors she shouldn’t, consider placing SmartSensor for doors and windows on sensitive cabinets, doors, or drawers. With an ecobee Smart Security home monitoring subscription, you’ll receive notifications directly to your smartphone if any of the protected entry points change from a closed to open state.
Another idea you might want to try is using SmartCamera to keep an eye on the kids while you’re working in another room or getting dinner ready. Position SmartCamera in the kids’ playroom so you can have a clear view on what they’re getting up to, and use the convenient Two-Way Talk feature to keep them on track and intervene as needed.
Last but certainly not least, give yourself a well-deserved pat on the back for striking the right balance between living comfortably and helping your family save automatically. Installing an ecobee smart thermostat in your home is a decision you won’t regret. Combined with the temperature and occupancy-detecting SmartSensor, the smart thermostat will enhance comfort in the rooms that matter most, while using the latest energy conservation technologies to save up to 23%* annually on heating and cooling costs and lower your family’s carbon footprint
Like everything, change starts small and the smartest, most impactful changes start at home. Sometimes it’s the changes you can’t see, the ones that improve your comfort and peace of mind, that make all the difference. So, we invite you to start here, with us, and see how ecobee can transform your everyday home life for the better.
