The Starter Package provides essential smart home capabilities with a VeraLite controller, security camera and plug-and-play lighting control and effortless expansion opportunities.
The Energy Package creates a green house with savings that are capable of paying for the system within a year or less. This includes a VeraLite controller, smart thermostat that communicates its climate and responds to desired adjustments from anywhere, smart wall switches that turn on/off remotely, a SmartSwitch that measures and controls from any household plug and a meter reader that reads out how much electricity is used and how to economize.
The Safety Package offers security and significant value versus the large service providers which charge up to $50/month or more for the same technology. With no monthly cost to the homeowner or renter, this package includes a VeraLite controller, state-of-the-art door lock that can report open/close activity via text or email; two powerful, high definition security cameras that work even in the dark, and four wireless sensors that secure doors and/or windows in seconds.
The Family Package provides an array of the most popular features including controlling access to any door in the residence from anywhere, a wireless video and audio security camera with adjustable views at the touch of a smartphone, PC or tablet. Also included is a VeraLite controller, two magnetic door/window sensors and a wide-range motion detector

These gateways can be connected to a broadband or Wi-Fi router in a plug-and-play format that is completely expandable. Mi Casa Verde also offers more than 100 apps including a weather monitor that allows the user to control window coverings and an app that controls the lighting level when the resident wakes up.
"While the technology is cool and the savings are substantial, we really enjoy getting emails and texts from users saying that the peace of mind they have from being able to control access and monitor their children, the babysitter and others. After all, meeting the personal and professional needs in a safe and economical home environment provides endless value," Goldberg noted.
