When you become a member of Atlantic Energy, one of the aspects of their service that sets them apart from other potential energy providers you could have gone with is their Smart Home Bundle. While the reliable and clean energy delivery at a competitive cost is certainly more than enough to get your attention, the smart products they offer customers over the first two years of service really go the extra mile to lift them above the competition.
For new customers of Atlantic Energy who sign up with the Smart Home Bundle, they are rewarded with various products and services at a $650 retail value over the first two years, with those products arriving at your doorstep in incremental steps along the way:
This value-added should raise some eyebrows and capture your attention, especially because those smart home products are ones you'll be able to keep no matter what. I was lucky enough to receive the 90-day package-- 1 Wi-Fi Smart Camera and 3 Wi-Fi Color Changing LEDs. Having not dabbled in smart home products too much previously, these devices gave a great sense of the possibilities behind the Internet of Things and how connected devices can make your life easier, more fun, and-- importantly-- more energy efficient.
Read on to hear about my experiences and overall review of the 90-day package.
When the devices came, they were all packaged neatly together and with their own individual boxes. Again, this first delivery included 1 Wi-Fi Smart Camera and 3 Wi-Fi Color Changing LEDs.
The nice compact boxes were nice because they minimized any extra packaging materials, and the clean look had me excited to dive in right away.
One of the most significant factors that scare people away from investing in smart home products is a fear of how complicated they will be to set up and use. Any fears like that are cast aside when seeing how brief the instructions included are:
And to be clear, these instructions aren't brief because they're lacking, rather the instructions are brief because of how much of the installation and setup process is straightforward, automated, and dummy-proof (click here for an overview on how to install the smart lights and click here for an overview of how to install the smart camera). Including the time it took to actually download the Atlantic Energy app, you're looking at less than 5 minutes of installation time per product. It's hard to beat that.
To gain full functionality, you're also well-served to connected these devices (particularly the smart lights) to Amazon Alexa or Google Home, which enables voice control. Again, follow the instructions provided (and reference the 'help' section of the app if you run into issues) and you'll be up and running in no time at all.
Once the installation is complete and you're on the app, the fun really begins. Each product and the app itself really comes with a smorgasbord of cool, useful, and energy-saving features. The best way to get to know these features and learn what will fit the lifestyle of you and others in your household is to start playing around, but an overview of some of my favorite aspects of these devices include the following:
Overall, if you haven't dipped your toes into the smart home market before then Atlantic Energy's Smart Home Bundle might just be the package you've been waiting for. The ease of use, variety of available functions, and sleek look of the devices would all be reason enough to jump at the opportunity, but keep in mind these devices are included free after 90 days of becoming a customer of Atlantic Energy and their clean and affordable power.
You could be forgiven for thinking this was all too good to be true, but Atlantic Energy would love to prove it to you! Get in touch today to find out more.
