1. Smart lights with one touch of a button

We call it the home-alone effect. If you are not there, with one touch of a button you can turn on selected smart lights in your home all from your GoKonnect Smart Home app. Make it look like someone is there even when you're not, just in case someone is watching your home. Not just a home security feature,  if you are in bed and don't fancy walking downstairs to check to turn off the lights, you can simply dim or turn them off right from the warm comfort of your bed.

One of the main benefits of the GoKonnect smart home app is the control of your entire home all from one app. If you own a GoKonnect smart thermostat, you can use the GoKonnect Smart Home app to turn the heat down when you’re at work—but then turn it back up when on your way home, so you never come home to a cold home again.
