The connected home market is still new territory for many
mainstream consumers, but one thing is certain - the "Internet of Things" and the market for connected home devices is
growing by leaps and bounds. Consumer interest has doubled
in the last three years, and that's just laying the groundwork for
the tremendous growth still to come.
For many consumers, the connected home
concept still seems complicated.
At Fromm Appliances & Lighting, we help simplify these
decisions by starting with control for the most logical lifestyle
components. We offer products that integrate easily with the
systems consumers use every day, like lighting, shading and
temperature control, to help take the first steps toward simple,
affordable connected home systems.

The connected home experience.
Just a few years ago, when builders asked clients about differentiating their homes, the conversation was typically about flooring, countertops, and molding. Today, that same conversation
often starts with smart technologies. Whether you are building
a new home, renovating, or remodeling, Fromm Appliances
& Lighting can show you how connected home solutions are
more robust and flexible than ever. Products like Lutron's Caséta
Wireless are designed to integrate easily and seamlessly with your
smart phones, wearables, and connected home systems such as
Apple HomeKit and Amazon Echo.
How do connected systems make a
difference in every home?
Smart lighting control, for example, saves energy, but it also
makes a home more comfortable, meeting both obvious (dim the
lights right from your smart phone or remote control to watch a
movie) and latent control needs (connected controls can remind
you to turn the lights off when you leave for the day, and automatically turn them on as you approach your front door).
These wireless solutions are easy to install and fully scalable
- this allows a homeowner to start small, such as controlling a
single light or the lights in one room, and to add control and
capability whenever they want. Lutron's Caséta Wireless can be as
easy as a lamp dimmer with Pico remote, or as robust as connected control for the entire home. It doesn't take long to fall in love
with the simplicity, convenience, and added comfort of connected
lighting, shading and HVAC controls.
