Design expert Genevieve Gorder teams up with the nation's #1 solar company, Sunrun, to help homeowners power their home in a much smarter way. Smart home technology can increase the value of your home, as well as improve the design and layout, while saving you money on costly electricity bills.

Genevieve believes that to achieve an affordable and efficient smart home one should use a a Smart TV. A Smart TV is an intelligent TV with gesture, voice controls and downloadable apps controlled by one remote system. She also recommends using a smart phone to control your home's a/c, heat, lighting and security as well as your own personal life and installing a smart thermostat to run your home more efficiently so your home doesn't control you; you control your home. A smart thermostat can in fact be monitored by your smart phone to adjust temperature controls and settings.

Her number one recommendation for achieving a smart home is to invest in solar energy via solar panels by Sunrun. A home powered by solar energy is cleaner, cheaper in the long run and will save the future of our planet. She states that Sunrun uses the best panel manufacturers and handles everything from installation, and maintenance to repairs.

Transforming your home into a smart home is easy, affordable and offers many benefits such as making your home more secure, efficient and adds value to your home's future equity.
