Smart Home Pilot Program

Thanks to the overwhelming interest in our Smart Home Pilot, we have reached the maximum enrollment for the program at this time. If you are interested in other ways to save money this summer, learn more about SMECO’s TOP Saver program for your smart thermostat.

Connecting your home to smart devices can make life easier and more comfortable. Join our new Smart Home Pilot Program to get a Starter Kit packed with internet-connected, energy-saving items at no cost.

Your Starter Kit comes with:

  • 1 Smart Hub
  • Occupancy Sensors
  • Motion Sensors
  • Smart LED Bulbs
  • Smart Plugs

These easy-to-install items help you take greater control of your home’s energy use and costs—no matter where you are.

You can also set a schedule that streamlines your daily routine. Tasks that you would normally handle manually, like turning lights on and off, can be done automatically—without effort on your part!

Easy Set-up:

When your kit arrives, you’ll install your new devices and download the Samsung SmartThings mobile app. The app will give you tips to automate your home’s energy use. Plus, you’ll receive monthly emails from SMECO with new tips and tricks to try with your new devices. Each email will include a short survey so you can let us know if you took the next step with your devices. Then you can sit back and relax while smart technology goes to work to help you save energy and money.
Selection for the program is on a randomized basis. Find out if you are selected by enrolling now. Then watch for an email from SMECO with instructions to download the SMECO Smart Home Pilot Program mobile app.
