Shea Homes® on Thursday announced the launch of SheaConnect™, a suite of smart-home features included in most new homes, designed specifically to improve and ease the daily life of the homeowner. SheaConnect offerings include energy efficient products and automation systems for convenience and peace of mind.

Shea Homes developed SheaConnect to meet not only practical needs of its customer but to also enhance the lifestyle homeowners experience in their new home daily. The home builder has aligned with some of the most trusted and advanced technology brands to ensure features are accessible on mobile phones, are highly functional and redefine living.

SheaConnect includes the following smart home devices as its standard offerings:

  • Amazon Echo Show 5, allowing homeowners to access most smart features on one device through voice control and video display.

  • Kwikset SmartCode electronic door lock, giving homeowners keyless entry and a timed auto lock feature. They can even allow entry for guests remotely using an eKey.
  • Ring Elite Video Doorbell, enabling homeowners to view, hear and talk to whoever's at the front door - even when they're not at home.
  • Genie® or LiftMaster Wi-fi Enabled Garage Door Opener, improving security by allowing homeowners to close or open their garage door from anywhere at their convenience, as well as setting a time to automatically close the door every day.
  • Honeywell Pro Smart Thermostat, controlling temperatures remotely or can be programmed based on whether someone is home or not, saving on energy costs while maintaining a comfortable environment.
  • iDevice Wall Switch, allowing homeowners to control specific lights from wherever they are.
  • Cat6 Wiring, ensuring high performance of connected devices.
  • White Glove Service, providing personalized technical services to connect one's home.
