Beam me up Scottie Into My New Smart Home

Beam me up Scottie Into My New Smart Home
How many of you remember sitting around and smiling, or maybe outright laughing, while you watched the original Star Trek (reruns for you young’uns)? I mean handheld communicators? Something called a Tricorder that was really a portable computer? A computer that responded to your voice? How silly all of that seemed 30 or 40 years ago. But, here we are and they are all a reality.

Are you ready to take advantage of all this technology and make your home a smart home? Or at the very least, smarter than it is right now? Then call the experts at Armstrong Plumbing, Air & Electric. How about motion sensor lights in every room of your house so you never have to worry about shutting the lights off? Maybe a voice activated command station which can give you voice control over several household devices? And how many USB charging ports do you need, or more importantly, want in your home? Armstrong electricians can fulfill any or all of those wants and needs.

Beyond the smart home concept, there are more basic concerns in many West Texas homes. They were built before there were TV’s and computers in every room. Many houses just don’t have the electrical capacity to handle all of those devices. As a result, homeowners are dealing with tripped circuit breakers in their breaker box. You say that’s no big deal, you just reset the breaker and go on with life. Try telling that to your 13-year-old daughter who’s putting the final touches on a major homework assignment when you plug in the shop vac to clean up a mess and pop the circuit breaker. There goes her two or three hours of work. She will not be a happy camper. Our licensed electricians can talk with you about installing a larger circuit breaker panel or adding new circuits to prevent those problems.

It doesn’t matter if your favorite Star Trek franchise is the original, Next Generation, Voyager, Deep Space Nine, or Enterprise. Before you sit down to watch the next show with your family, call Armstrong Plumbing, Air & Electric to install smart home systems in your house, so you can live the experience instead of just watching it.

Just a reminder, we are in the middle of our Catch Me In Pink™ campaign. During the month of October our Armstrong employees will be wearing pink shirts. When you spot one of us, ask to take a photo (remember just you and the employee can be in the photo) to post on Facebook.

When you do that we will make a donation to the Vera Bradley Foundation to fight breast cancer and you could end up being a winner. There are weekly prizes and a grand prize of a vacation to St. Croix in the U.S Virgin Islands. The Catch Me In Pink™ campaign lasts through October which is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. This is just one more way Armstrong is giving back.
