Energy Savings Made Easy — and Smart


It’s inevitable: the jarring ring of the alarm clock jolts you from your restful slumber to another hectic day. As you reach for the second (or third or fourth) time to hit snooze, saving energy is probably the last thing on your mind. But did you know between the comfort of your sheets and those sugar plum dreams, you could be saving energy? By optimizing your daily routine with your at-home smart devices, you can save energy with every sluggish thud of the snooze button.


Simplified energy savings

There are so many opportunities and small ways to save energy. From being king of your kitchen to finding energy efficiency in the bathroom, there’s no shortage of things you can try out. But between these tips and tricks, soccer practices, dinner schedules, weekend plans… it can be a lot to remember! Your smart device has the ability to help you keep everything in order. Optimize your daily routine with helpful hourly, daily, weekly or monthly reminders of ways you can save energy. Before you know it, you’ll be an energy efficiency master and the envy of everyone at the bake sale. (Hey — who says you can’t do it all?)


Set it and forget it

Your thermostat that is! Smart devices have the ability to connect with smart thermostats which can help you save big on your energy bill. Your smart thermostat learns how your family likes the temperature in your home and adjusts it throughout the day, saving you money on your energy bill. Just connect your at-home smart device with your smart thermostat to start your daily energy-saving plan. Don't have a smart thermostat yet?
