Smart Home Devices

What Is a Smart Home Device?

A smart home device is a connected device that can be controlled remotely through a smartphone app, voice commands, or a web interface. These devices are designed to automate and simplify various tasks and functions in a home, such as controlling lighting, adjusting temperature, monitoring security, and more.

NEST: Nest is an automated thermostat that learns and remembers the temperature preferences for your home. A nest thermostat familiarizes the daily habits of your home and programs itself to deliver the ideal temperature for your home. Its settings can also be controlled by a mobile app which could be adjusted for a specific room and time.

Caseta by Lutron: Automatic lighting is more common in office settings, though it is now making its way to homes as well. Automatic lighting includes features like automatic dimming, occupancy sensors with motion detection as well as controlled switches. The automated controls allow you to make adjustments to the conditions that are present in your home, for example: how many people are present in the room and the daylight conditions.

Smart Home Switches: Another popular smart home device is the “smart switch”. The smart switches are paired with the appliances in your home via a smartphone app. Through this app, you can control and automate your existing home appliances. For example, when your appliances are not in use, you will have the option to turn them off by swiping your finger. Rise is in Data, Voice, Electrical, and Security Camera Installations.


The team at TDR has been amazing to work with - I can’t say enough good things about them. When you hire any trade to help you there’s a lot of trust put in them to do what they are asked to do but my experience with them is they go above and beyond and they think outside the box to make the job the best it could possibly be, make it workable for the business and they really take pride in their work. Liam and his team have been professional, helpful, and accommodating, and brought ideas for my business I hadn’t even thought about to improve it and I’m so grateful for that!

We have used TDR's services for home improvements (light installation) and they were prompt and professional. More recently, TDR has been working with our strata to identify options for Electric Vehicle charging in our complex. They provided our council with an EV Ready Plan which was approved and reimbursed by BC Hydro, and Taylor has helped us immensely in understanding not only the technical aspects of an EV charging system installation but also the requirements under the ever-changing rebate system.

It was a pleasure to work with TDR from the friendliness of the office personnel to the consultant who came out to do up a work order and cost, to the electrician who came and did the work. I highly recommend this company. Very easy to work with and I couldn't be happier with the quality of work from new plug outlets, to lighting installations, and wiring the ceiling for a fan and installation.
