Many homeowners entered the world of home automation with a smart thermostat – and Nest was often their pick. Beyond thermostats, Nest continues to be one of the leading companies in smart home technology. With a solid consumer following, Nest consistently blazes a path by improving its products, and strategically partnering with other smart home companies to create compatible products that benefit consumers.

Nest has also greatly expanded from thermostats. They offer smart doorbells, smoke and CO alarms, door locks, video cameras, and alarm systems. As the available devices for smart technology and home automation grows, so does the demand for professional installers that focus on the electrical aspect. Basically, the devices that need the assistance of an electrician for installation.

The Wilcox Electric team are trained Nest Pros, which is exactly what you’ll need when you make the move to streamline and automate your home.

Using a Nest Pro

Smart homes can only work if put together correctly. With the number of products entering the market, it helps to work with someone who understands smart technology. Electricians are natural for this role – they get how a house is wired together, and what it can handle load-wise.

Nest recognized the need to provide training to these experts and help them expand their skills even further. A Nest Pro offers consumers a big bonus; the ability to automate their home with popular products and ensure it is integrated for optimal performance.

Benefits of Home Automation

There are many reasons to automate your home with Nest products. For example:
  • Keep your house more secure, whether you’re at home or away.
  • Reduce your bills by making your home more efficient.
  • Experience convenience; through voice commands, a simple app, or by allowing Nest products to intuit your rhythm and routines.
