Smart Home technology is here. It’s no longer for the affluent or tech-obsessed young consumer and it’s giving homeowners more comfort, more security, and more convenience and it could save you money.
A smart home is defined as a home that is equipped with network-connected products (aka ‘smart products’, connected via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or similar protocols) for controlling, automating and optimizing functions such as temperature, lighting, security, safety or entertainment, either remotely by a phone, tablet, computer or a separate system within the home itself.
This technology is revolutionizing the way we live, and nobody knows better how to guide you through the process of understanding it than a Smart Home Certified agent.* The Shellbrook Team is dedicated to educating home buyers and sellers about the benefits of a connected home.

Voice Control For Your Home
Imagine a hands-free, voice controlled device that uses the power of the cloud to control appliances, make phone calls, play music, secure your home and more — all just by using the sound of your voice.
A Smarter way to Protect Yourself
Say good-bye to false alarms and low battery chirping. Today’s smart smoke and carbon monoxide detectors send you a remote notification when something goes wrong, for more peace of mind and a faster call to emergency services when you’re away from home.
Get Your Lights Under Control
Smart lights use smart hubs that connect to your home’s wifi network, allowing you to remotely control not only your home’s lights, but window shades and more, all from the convenience of your smart phone.
Locks That Do More Than Lock
Smart locks let you ditch your keys, allowing you to open and lock your door using just your phone. They can also keep track of who is entering and leaving your home while you’re away. Some even let you assign special privileges to friends, family members or maintenance people.
Smart Thermostats. Comfy and Convenient.
Smart thermostats let you adjust your home’s temperature from the comfort of your couch, but that’s only the beginning. They can monitor your usage to save energy, pre-heat or pre-cool your house before you get home.
