Smarter Home of the Carolinas  was born out of a desire to make our homes more fun to live in while taking the work out of simple daily task.  For founder Shaun Ellis, it started with him trying to find a lamp timer that didn't have to be reset twice a year.  Fast forward a few years and a lot of research, Shaun and his wife Mary Lee's home has 60+ automated devices that either makes life safer, more fun, or just remove the mundane tasks from his day.  And honestly sometimes it's just plain funny how computers and humans interact.

If you've made it this far your probably wondering what happens after I make the phone call?  That's a fair question and here's the answer: 


We come to you - sit down in your home and determine what you want from your Smart Home.  Not everyone wants the same things.  We conduct a survey of what your desires are, what you want to have in your home, answer your questions concerning products, select the right products to meet your needs. 


After that and your new Smart Home goodies come in, we come to your home to install them and then show you how the system operates.  We'll take the time to ensure you have answers to your questions and everything works how you want it to.
