When you think of a “smart home”, what comes to mind? Is it a smart audio system that you can turn on with a command? Or maybe a smart refrigerator that tells you when you are low on milk or eggs? Or even drapes that are controlled by a remote or timer?

In reality, these are just individual smart devices connected to the internet that can be remotely controlled. These days, there are 1000’s of options for smart devices and navigating the interoperability between devices and apps can be extremely time consuming and expensive. This myriad of smart devices can quickly become a complicated endeavor, even for a tech savvy homeowner.

A true smart home should be a system of interconnectivity throughout your home. It should provide safety, security, and peace of mind. A smart home should make every day living easier and more convenient in a way that you don’t even have to think about it. And it shouldn’t be a luxury.

“Every home should be a smart home,” says Ryan Geltz, CEO of Fishers-based Pro Security and Automation.

With several packages to choose from and customize, Pro Security knows a “one size fits all” approach doesn’t work. Geltz works closely with each homeowner to identify their individual needs and wants, so Pro Security can seamlessly integrate a home’s systems, devices and users to deliver the best smart home experience possible.

“If you’re going to put in a deadbolt, why not put in a smart deadbolt?” Geltz asks. Especially if that deadbolt can turn off your alarm and turn on the lights when you disengage it while carrying bags of groceries inside.

There is a lot of cool technology today. Geltz says the question is: “What are we going to see down the road?” A selfproclaimed tech nerd, he sees the possibilities of the future in terms of technology and compatibility and notes, “we’re future-proofing your home.”

From security to audio, video, and every automation in between, the ways in which a smart home can make your life a little easier are endless. Just ask the experts at Pro Security and Automation.
