Making Home Automation Easy With Cranney Home Services


Whether your home is a new build or has been around for hundreds of years, Cranney Home Services can help connect your home to the world around you. Throughout the past few years, leaps and bounds have been made in the field of home automation technology, making life easier for you and your family. It is amazing to see how something as simple as your phone can control multiple facets of your home.

Nest Home Security Camera


Have the peace of mind of being at home even when you are away! Whether it be in your office during the day or on a family vacation thousands of miles away, you will be able to check up on your home with the Nest mobile app. These cameras can be easily mounted, setup, and stream 1080p video directly to your smartphone or tablet in minutes. Another great feature is that the camera has motion and sound detection capabilities and can send you alerts when it picks up on motion or sound stimuli when you are not home.

Sonos Home Sound System


Whether you are entertaining a large group of friends and family or even relaxing by yourself in your yard, Sonos speakers provide rich acoustic sound without the hassle of wires. This is a new sound system that delivers crystal clear music in and out of your home, combining stereo sound and easy wireless control through a smart system at the tip of your fingers using the Sonos app. Each zone of your home can be controlled individually as well. This is perfect for when you are entertaining guests outside and at the same time have people inside watching the game on TV.

Lyric Water Monitor by Honeywell


The Lyric Water Monitor by Honeywell notifies you on your smartphone when a leak is detected in a zone where you have one of the water monitors placed or even when the temperature of a pipe or a room drops below a certain temperature. These monitors connect to your home’s wifi network and can prevent expensive repairs in the future as you will be notified of a problem right when it begins as opposed to finding it hours or even days later if your are not home.

Water Hero Smart Leak Detection


Similar to the Lyric Water Monitor by Honeywell, The Water Hero’s job is to also detect leaks but is more geared toward leaks in pipes. The Water Hero mounts directly to the hardware and has a modem that will send you a notification if it detects a leak. Other than just sending leak alerts, Water Hero also continuously monitors temperature, offers household water consumption information, and can completely shut off your home’s water supply before there is a major issue.

Wifi Thermostats


Over the past few years, wifi thermostats have been growing in popularity and could be one of the most common pieces of home automation equipment. Almost every major thermostat brand (Nest, Honeywell, Lennox, etc…) has their own model of a wifi thermostat however they all accomplish virtually the same task. Wifi thermostats can be a great upgrade for your home as you can control the temperature of your home right from your phone via a mobile app as well as view analytics of your energy consumption. This allows you to learn about how you and your family can use less energy, help the planet and, of course, your wallet.
