Home improvement projects can be difficult—but so worthwhile! In the end, we’re so pleased with our new kitchen, flooring, or windows that we try to forgive and forget the troublesome contracting process.
When you have a contractor working on your home, you need all the help you can get. And the good news is that new smart home technology can really help you manage contractors working in your home! Connected Home is an authorized dealer/installer with alarm.com. We work closely with all Leland-area builders and contractors so your project is seamless.
Here are some ways smart home technology can help you manage contractors in your home.
A Smart Home Security System Puts You in Charge
A smart home security system is a great safety precaution anytime, and it’s useful for both you and your contractor. Here’s how:
A smart access solution allows smart locks and user codes to give one contractor—or several—access to your home, whether you’re there or not. You can even set up codes that work only when you’re expecting the contractor, for extra security.
A smartphone app allows you to let a contractor in remotely. You know exactly when work begins, and you won’t have to wait for contractors to show up, making you late for that meeting!
User codes monitor when contractors enter and leave your home, so you have an accurate account of time spent working.
Keep an Eye on Your Contractor’s Work in Real Time
Smart phone alerts and views can really help you keep track of what’s going on at home when you can’t be there yourself.
A smart phone alert can tell you when your contractor arrives and leaves the premises.
With an image sensor or connected camera, you can pop in and take a look at how the job is going—no matter where you are. With video monitoring, you can get a live feed and, with certain equipment, even talk back and forth as the project advances.
Smart Access Ends When the Contractor’s Finished
At the end of the day, and the end of the project, you want your privacy back. Smart Home technology helps you with this.
Remotely lock your doors—even your garage door—and reset your security system with smart home technology when workers leave for the day.
When the job is complete and the last floor swept clean, smart technology lets you delete the contractor’s user code from your system.
