The great thing about the smart home is that you can build it bit by bit, adding one device and then another until your home is as smart as you’ve envisioned. In the meantime, you’ll benefit from even a few “smart” devices to start. The most logical place to begin is typically with smart switches and lighting – typically inexpensive to install, but highly beneficial in terms of boosting comfort and discouraging intruders. After all, a warm, lit house looks occupied and inviting – to you and to potential burglars.
It also makes sense to install a Z-Wave garage door sensor right away. Z-Wave garage door sensors tend to be inexpensive, useful, and robust – which means that the investment will improve the quality of your life immediately, but won’t break the bank. Plus, your Z-Wave garage door sensor will enhance the strength and power of your smart home, because Z-Wave technology runs on what’s called a “mesh” network, where devices pass their signals from device to device en route to the controller. Therefore, the more smart devices you add, the broader reach your network will have, and the more control you’ll have over your property, your devices, and your family’s comfort and security.
