Smart devices like thermostats, irrigation controllers and LED light bulbs or strips not only offer useful perks like voice or app control from anywhere, but they also use far less energy with optimized functionality. Smart lighting solutions can operate in strings of triggered activity with other devices, or on a schedule that uses minimal electricity when it isn't needed. Also, converting to LEDs from old incandescent bulbs is a huge energy-saver.
Smart thermostats can adapt to user settings and schedules to turn on when needed and off when they are not, even turning on when detecting users are nearby home, balancing comfort with efficiency. Smart irrigation controllers are not only able to use localized weather reports to adjust your watering schedule in real-time, but they can also maintain levels of soil moisture, so optimal plant growth is achieved without overwatering.
