Stay Cool – Save Money

A reminder that with the current heat in Southern California, staying cool while saving money is more important than ever.  A simple starter system gets you the ability to control your thermostat remotely so that your home is cooling down before you get home.  And…if your plans change, you can adjust that thermostat while “on the road” so that you aren’t wasting energy when no one is home.

We have a summer special going for this system.  Thermostat, hub and mobile app for under $400 – installed.


Happy Independence Day

Wishing you and your families a very restful and enjoyable July 4 holiday!

Cool the House Automatically

Our focus on energy savings continues with a nifty idea to have fans come on automatically based on the environment.  Here’s how it works:  We simply monitor the outside temperature (based on your zip code) and your inside temperature (based on the thermostat).  When the outside temp drops below the inside temp, the fan comes on to draw the outside air in and circulate through the house.  We can even check to ensure a few windows are open to draw in the outside air before activating the fan.

Pretty cool (so to speak) and not very expensive.  We’ll put a special package together for you.  Check it out at

Beat The Heat

Summer is here and it’s getting hot.  You want your home cool when you’re there but don’t want to spend extra dollars to keep it that way when you’re not.  Adding a “smart thermostat” to your home is easy and will start saving you money right away.  Coming home on a hot day?  Just set the temperature to start cooling ahead of time with the simple tap of a button on your mobile phone.

Quick, easy – and very affordable.  Get it installed, with the app, for less than $399.  Check it out at

On-Demand Heated Water

Here’s a clever idea from a recent LiveSmart customer…

They have a tankless water heater which provides hot water within 10 secs of “being turned on”.  That’s great – but the tankless system itself has to be powered on all the time – or be set to turn on at certain times.  All good, except…

They don’t always know when they need hot water.  So how about a way to turn it on and off “on demand”?  With either a button on the LiveSmart app – or – a physical button mounted in the kitchen or bathroom, the hot water comes on fast.  When finished, just turn it off.

They no longer have to set up a schedule or climb up on a ladder to the system to turn the system on and off.  What a benefit.

Cost – about $300.  Implementation – easy.  Time savings – immeasurably good.

Say Hello to Good-Night

Ending the day should be easy.  With a single button you can turn off all lights, lock all doors and adjust the thermostat to your liking.  This could include appliances too – such as the TV, radio or anything else that is “plugged in”.  One single tap on your mobile device and it’s done.  You tell us what you want…we take care of the rest.  Easy.


Home Automation is Hip

, , ,

We have been telling you that home automation is all about “living smart” – which it is.  Did you know that it’s also considered “hip”.  Having a system like this puts you in charge and keeps you connected with the important things in your home or business.  You will have fun showing it off at work, with family or at parties.  “Watch what I can do…”.

Our new ‘app’ is even easier to use and more stylish.  Things are summarized at the Dashboard level with easy access to everything you need.  Change the thermostat…tap.  Lock the door…tap.  Turn on some lights…tap, tap.  See all the actions in a simple Event History screen.

You’ve been hearing about smart home stuff.  It has been the wave of the future and now it’s here.  Let us show you how you can use it.  Live simple, Live safe, Live smart.
