A lot has changed in our homes over the years. Technology has advanced and has offered us new and unique solutions to problems we face in our homes. Many people have decided to integrate these new technologies into their homes to create a “smart home” system. There are so many different products on the market and different uses for them. Let’s take a look at why so many people have decided to make the switch to smart home products.

Automation and Energy Efficiency

Whether you’re using smart lights, a smart thermostat, or smart outlets, there are so many ways to automate and save energy. Almost all smart home products have the ability to set accessories on a timer, so that they turn on and off automatically at the same time each day. This can be extremely helpful for those individuals who are prone to forgetting to turn off lights when they leave the house. Many products also have monitoring abilities so that you can see how much energy your products are using, and make adjustments as necessary.

Security and Home Protection

One of the biggest benefits of using smart home products is the security and home protection they offer. From cameras, to automated locks on your doors, you can use smart home products to ensure that your home is always secure, even when you are away. You can see who is coming up to your door or if anyone is on your property, and make sure your home alarm systems are active. Another example of this is PumpSpy’s Smart Sump Pump Systems. They automatically track incoming data from your sump pump and check that everything is working properly 24/7. In the event of a sump pump problem or power outage, you’ll get instant alerts to your smart phone or tablet. 


A great feature that smart home products offer is the ability to customize your home exactly the way you want it. Our homes are our safe havens, so we want it to be personalized to fit our needs. You can use smart lights to set colored scenes and ambiances, smart speakers to wake you up with your favorite song, or a smart thermostat to make sure your home is always the perfect temperature depending on the time of day. The possibilities of customization with smart home accessories are endless.


Last but not least, a huge reason that people decide to make the switch to smart homes is simple – they are convenient! Most smart home accessories are interconnected through a single app or hub, and you can control everything from the palm of your hand. The PumpSpy app, for example, allows you to interact with your PumpSpy Wi-Fi devices installed in your home and monitor the health of your sump pump, no matter where you are located. The simple convenience of being able to control all of the technology in your home from a single device is definitely one of the biggest benefits of smart home products.

Whether you already have a full smart home system or are just getting started adding products to your home, one thing that is certain is that your system won’t be complete without PumpSpy’s Smart Sump Pump Systems. We offer a wide range of products to protect your home from basement flooding that will integrate seamlessly into your smart home setup.
