SMART HOME

Cost:

Varies per system

Smart Home is a retail website selling affordable electronic home automation products. These products are compatible with many different systems including Insteon, X10, Z-Wave, UPB, and Zigbee. Smart Home calls itself 'The Home Automation Superstore', and while it does have the feel of a discount superstore, it is very functional and easy to navigate. You'll find different product styles and types listed among tabs across the top and left side of the page. The challenge at Smart Home is that you won't find one simple easy automated home package but individual pieces and parts to choose from.

Products on this site seem to be of good value (slightly cheaper than some competitors) and are brands easily recognizable in the electronics, home security, and home automation industries such as GE, Sony, Panasonic, Cortexa, Visonic and many more. There is a wide range of X10 and UPB compatible products. These products use your homes existing wiring to allow products to communicate. Also, Z-Wave compatible products can be used in a wireless network connecting your homes electronics.

SmartHome offers free shipping on orders of $200 or more that chip to a commercial address. Under $200 seems to be your standard FedEx shipping rates, anywhere from $6.00 for ground shipping to over $35 for next day air. The return policy on this site states that items can be returned within 30 days in new condition and original packaging (you will pay return shipping). For defective items, return them within 30 days and the product will be replaced at no cost to you (they will pay the shipping). Smart Home also has a Low Price Guarantee. If you find a national print advertisement for an identical new product within 30 days of receipt, send in the printed ad and they will refund the difference.

This website is easy to use, has many different kinds of products at decent prices. As a retailer of these home automation products Smart Home is a good option but you might want to do your research before you shop here as the product line can be intimidating to choose from.

The Home Automation Store

THE HOME AUTOMATION STORE

Cost:

Varies based on equipment selected

The Home Automation Store is an online retailer of home automation products, specifically X10 compatible products. X10 products use your homes existing wiring to allow products to communicate with each other. The Home Automation Store also sells some Z-Wave compatible products (which are similar to X10 products except they are wireless).

Searching the website is relatively simple, you may search their short list of product types on the left hand side of the home page with ease. Once you find a product you're interested in you may click on it for further details.

The Home Automation Store has a basic shipping policy but, no discounts or free shipping are available for large dollar orders. The return policy is also straightforward. If an item is damaged in shipping, you can get a full refund. There is a 30 day window to return items with a possible $15 restocking fee. Refunds will be issued within 10 days of receipt. Since The Home Automation Store is not a reseller of their own products, warranty on products is dictated by the manufacturer and may seem complicated for those that want an efficient shopping experience.

The Home Automation store failed to really grab our attention. To purchase a system you need to choose each individual product, and have a strong knowledge of home automation to do this yourself. With their average selection and website we had a tough time getting excited about The Home Automation Store.

Usually all you need is a computer or a mobile phone to easily control and monitor the many aspects of your home. Home automation can also be enhanced with a home security system to offer added security for your home and family.

There are a number of competent home automation companies that exist today. However, these home automation services can vary greatly in features offered and installation costs. Before selecting a home automation system, you should consider the following:

  • Usability. How technically savvy do you have to be to operate the home automation product? If it's too complicated, it's just not worth it.
  • Customer service. If you have a question or problem with your home automation system, will there be someone who can quickly answer your questions?
  • Guarantee. If the home automation system doesn't work, or you change your mind, can you return it for your money back?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Home Automation solutions available today. We hope these reviews help you find the right home automation system that you're looking for!
