From small details to major plot twists, here are five ways that Back to the Future would have been different had SmartThings been around.
Creating a smarter, healthier planet starts at home.
Through 11:59 p.m. EST on March 31, we’re taking $30 off the price of the SmartThings Energy Saver Kit and offering it for just $169. There’s no promo code necessary: Simply add it to your cart in the SmartThings Shop, and the $30 savings will automatically be applied at checkout.
We think that lights should be smarter. They currently account for nearly 35% of a home’s energy usage, and they have a big impact on our planet–which just experienced the warmest winter on record.
The Energy Saver Kit helps you live green and save some green by allowing you to control, monitor, and automate lights, electronics, and small appliances from your smartphone. By ensuring that your lights are off when no one is in the room or by setting your electronics to shut off when not in use, you can slash your energy bill and help contribute to a healthier planet.
Here are a few more things you can do with the Energy Saver Kit:
- Control & monitor your lights, electronics, and small appliances from anywhere.
- Restrict electricity flow to electronics or appliances after a set period of time. So, for example, you can set the total time for an appliance (such as a curling iron or TV) to be in use.
- Set devices to turn off after you or your kids leave to avoid having to worry about them or check them.
- Power your portable or window A/C units (12A max load) from anywhere and, with the help of a Multi sensor, also triggering them to automatically shut off or turn on if rooms in your home reach a set temperature.
Whether you’re shopping for yourself or a loved one, there’s never been a better time to save on SmartThings: For three days only, we’re offering our brand-new Holiday Kit for just $169–a $30 savings off the retail price.
