Easy Home Upgrades

Easy ways to Update your home!

Smart home tech has come a long way in the past few years, and with that there are quite a few options to choose from! Here at Redi Systems we understand how overwhelming it can be sometimes when looking for upgrades to bring your home into the 21st century. We’d love to go over a few simple ways to update your home!


  1. Modernize your Smoke Detector

Many people don’t realize the batteries are low in their smoke detector or carbon monoxide alarm until its to late. Avoid having this happen with an investment in a Nest Protect.

The Nest Protect contains an industrial grade smoke and carbon monoxide sensor and automatically tests its battery levels throughout the day. When you go to bed at night it emits a soft glow letting you know everything is ok. Plus it syncs with your phone and only takes a few minutes to install and setup!
  1. Smart Locks

When you have kids or multiple people living in your home there’s a good chance someone will either forget to lock the door or lock themselves out. Eliminate this safety risk with a smart lock.

Yale and Kwikset offer smart locks that you can remotely control from anywhere. Instead of physical keys, you can assign each member of the family a unique code to enter. Plus you’re able to receive texts or notifications when anyone enters or leaves your home! And when connected to a home automation system your locks can respond to one-touch control, such as a “Goodnight” button that locks all of the doors simultaneously while every light in the home shuts down.

  1. Security System

Homes without security systems are 300% more likely to be broken into, so installing an alarm and few cameras is an easy way to protect your home. The peace of mind knowing your family and home are protected is priceless. And thanks to home automation, security systems can help you keep and eye on your house no matter where you are!

Stay connected with a mobile app and you can:

  • Check in on and control your home remotely
  • Lock doors and close garage doors
  • Arm and Disarm the alarm system
  • View Cameras and receive notifications when movement is detected

With nothing more than a few simple home updates and investments in smart technology, you’ll make your home safer, smarter, and more personalized to your needs.
