Article by University Electrical Services, LLC
Outlets with USB ports Make charging all your devices easier by installing this inexpensive and extremely useful modification to your home. Skip the USB adapter and charge your device directly from the outlet or keep all your devices neatly tucked away with USB ports installed in a drawer or cabinet.
Security monitoring Upgrade your home security and protect your home by installing a video doorbell and floodlight security cameras. Feel safe knowing that while you are away you can keep an eye on your home from your smartphone whether you’re across town, at work, or at the beach on vacation.
Smart lighting system Install a smart lighting system by starting with smart switches that are as convenient and easy to use as a regular light switch. Instead of just an on/off feature, you now get the benefits of remote control, scheduling and automation, so no more getting out of bed to turn on the fan.
Motion and Automatic lights Save on your utility bill and improve convenience in your home by adding motion and door activated light switches to kitchens, baths, closets and more. Avoid having to look for the light switch when you walk into a room or open a closet and save money knowing your kids are not leaving all the lights on all the time.
LED lights Convert your lighting over to LED and make the world a brighter place. LEDs are more energy efficient, provide higher quality lighting, and are more environmentally friendly. As a bonus they’ll save you money on your utility bill and they’ve been proven to last longer, so no more arguing over changing the light bulbs.
Landscape lighting Enhance your nighttime experience with custom landscape lighting and see your property come alive at night. Proper exterior lighting will help improve security and ensure safety while also creating that backyard oasis you always dreamed of for family BBQs.
Interior lighting Improve the ambiance and look of your home by installing accent lighting. Whether you are building a new house or remodeling your current home, adding cabinet lighting can give unique distinction to any kitchen or office. They can provide ample illumination in dark areas without having to waste electricity on brighter bulbs and help provide light for the midnight snacker.
Smart smoke detectors Revamp the safety of your home by updating to smart smoke detectors. When they sense something amiss, they will alarm and send an alert to your smartphone allowing you to call the fire department or friend to check to see if everything is okay while you are not at home. You can also temporarily silence the alarm from your smartphone, instead of hitting it with a broom while cooking dinner.
Surge protectors Give your home the best line of defense with a whole house surge protection. By installing a surge protector on your electrical panel and A/C unit, it will protect the electronic components of all your major appliances, computers, and that flat screen TV you bought to watch the football game.
Generator Imagine your life without power, generators can ensure automatic backup power for your home to protect your family and appliances during a power outage. They will continue to run until power is restored. The size of the generator depends on your needs, from basic power of lights and refrigeration to powering the whole house. So no more rushing to eat all the ice-cream in the freezer before it all melts.
