Whether you have a puppy or a grown dog, installing smart home technology in your home can make it easier to manage and monitor your pet’s needs. And, that means peace of mind. Plus, smart home devices can satisfy your curiosity. Just what does your puppy do while you’re away during the day? Is he napping on the couch or shredding something?!
Smart camera – With a smart camera such as the Nest Cam IQ, you can keep an eye on your puppy day or night via the Nest app. With HD resolution video, 12x digital zoom, night vision, and a microphone and speaker – you can even talk to him through the camera. Subscribe to Nest Aware and you can choose to get alerts specifically when your dog is barking. Plus, create and save video clips and time lapses of his silly antics to share with friends and family on Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter.
Smart thermostat – A smart thermostat can ensure that the temperature of your home stays comfortable for your puppy. A Nest thermostat, for example, can be controlled remotely. Its “Safety Temperature” feature prevents your home from going above or below certain temperatures. Also, you can add a Nest Temperature Sensor, which lets you choose where your thermostat measures the temperature in your home. This way, you can keep the temperature comfortable in the room(s) where your puppy spends his time.

Today, one of our technicians came across this smoke alarm that may have been the original one installed when the home was built decades ago. Our technician removed it and installed new Nest Protect smoke/CO alarms for the homeowner.
