HARTFORD, Wis.---In today's busy world, it's easy to forget. People forget to turn off the lights at night, unplug the curling iron or even shut the garage door when leaving for vacation. But, instead of worrying about what we may have overlooked at home, wouldn't it be nice if our homes remembered for us? With the NuTone Smart Home Series, integrated home automation and management, whether from the living room couch or across the globe, is now just a click away.

The NuTone Smart Home Series provides the ultimate home automation solution, placing security, energy savings, convenience and control at one's fingertips. While some other brands lock you into their system, NuTone Smart Home Series devices work with your favorite Home Automation hub* and app.

"At NuTone, we strive to make consumers' lives easier and more efficient with our smart, interactive technologies," said Jessica Lindquist, Marketing Manager, Low Voltage/Specialty Product Categories, for Broan-NuTone. "The NuTone Smart Home Series is our next generation of product offerings that will do just that. Homeowners now have the power to manage their homes' climate, secure access to their homes, and control lighting and appliances, either automatically or with just one touch."

With a Z-Wave hub and a smartphone, homeowners are able to monitor, dim, turn on/off, open/close, schedule or automate their NuTone Smart Home Series devices, which include the Smart Garage Door Controller, Smart Outlets and Smart Lighting products.

Setting the Scene

With the number of product options available in the NuTone® Smart Home Series and their home automation hub, homeowners are able to group various devices to create a scene, fully integrating control of their home. When returning home from work, the opening of the garage door signals the lights to turn on and the thermostat to adjust to a predetermined setting. When waking up in the morning, the touch of a button turns on the kitchen lights, sets the coffee pot into brewing mode and switches on the television to a morning news program. The options for creating a scene are unlimited, and homeowners are able to tailor their scenes to meet their specific needs.
