Smart Home Pilot Program

Let your home make life easier and more comfortable. Enroll in our new Smart Home Pilot Program and get a Starter Kit packed with Samsung SmartThings energy-saving items. Next, install those devices, download the Samsung SmartThings mobile app, and sync the app to your home’s smart thermostat. The app will give you tips to automate your home’s energy use. Then you can sit back and relax—while smart technology goes to work to help you save energy and money.

Your Starter Kit comes with a smart hub, occupancy sensors, motion sensors, and smart hub-connected LED bulbs and plugs. These items help your home control lighting and appliances based on your daily routine. Just like you can control your smart thermostat with your smartphone or tablet, now you can control your connected lighting and appliances!

Registration is limited on a first-come, first-served basis for the pilot phase of this program, so be sure to enroll today. After enrollment, you’ll get an email from SMECO to download a SMECO Smart Home Pilot Program mobile app.
