Automate Your Home with Smith Thompson

In years past, home automation installation and monitoring used to be cost-prohibitive. But today, home automation isn’t just for high-end homes. Smith Thompson Home Security offers one of the best rates in home automation — both within the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and from Houston to Austin to San Antonio — with monitoring starting at $29.95 a month, all with no contract or credit check required.

Here are a few more reasons why automating your home with Smith Thompson Home Security makes sense.


Oh, the joy of never having to worry about whether or not you shut the garage door ever again! Home automation means that and so much more. Not only can you use your smartphone to check on that garage door closed (and close it just in case you did leave it open), but you can also control the appliances and systems that affect every room in your home. Alarm and security systems, thermostats, interior and exterior lighting, door and window locks, cameras (indoor, outdoor, doorbell, etc.), flood detectors — all be operated with just a few taps and swipes. It’s all done using the top-rated app that’s compatible with iOS and Android devices. Moreover, this is technology that was designed with the homeowner in mind. You won’t need a degree in programming to operate or maintain your home automation system.


Smart homes can be up to 30 percent cheaper to operate than conventional homes. They do this by working to eliminate wasted energy. For instance, you can easily program your thermostat to cool down when you’re sleeping and warm up just before your alarm clock goes off. Thanks to home automation systems equipped with next-generation LED lighting and dimming solutions that use considerably less energy, you can more efficiently create an inviting home atmosphere. There is also money to be saved on home insurance premiums as well, as some insurers offer discounts to incentivize the installation of smart technology.

One-stop-shop solution

Here at Smith Thompson Home Security, our professionals will install your home automation system and provide 24/7 monitoring through our private UL Certified Dispatch Center. And unlike some companies that charge separate fees for every feature, we offer them all for one low flat rate. Great smart home solutions such as smartphone access, indoor cameras, smart locks, doorbell cameras, thermostat and light controls, notifications and cloud storage are all included in our $29.95 monthly rate.


Peace of mind comes in the form of indoor and outdoor cameras that help you keep track of your children and anyone coming and going from your home. Home automation also allows you to monitor and protect your home while you’re on vacation. The system features smartphone arming with both stay and away modes, motion and glass-break detectors, a built-in siren and smash and crash protection. Smith Thompson Home Security yard signs and window decals further deter burglars from targeting your home and personal property.
