Although we all appreciate our breezy, balmy island, we know how warm it can get during the summertime, often uncomfortably so. Those who don’t have a smart home will have a much more difficult task managing the heat. For example, they might have to walk around the house turning on fans or lowering shades - a bothersome, time-consuming task if you have a large or multi-level Lahaina home.

Facilitate your most luxurious island life with a little help from smart home technology. We install convenient tools like
climate control that let you manage temperatures from your phone or with your voice. Motorized shades will stabilize temperatures throughout the day (No more mid-afternoon heat waves!) and help you lower energy bills. And you can stay cool by the pool or patio with automated fans and fun pool setting controls. Learn how these technologies coexist to give you a comfortable, energy-efficient Hawaii residence or vacation home.
