Comfortable In Her Own Home

As a recent widow, I worried about living alone.  Joe Chappell at Connected HHI made me comfortable staying in my home.  I chose SimpliSafe’s security system for ease of use and it performs well and is easy to use.  I travel a fair amount and chose Nest thermostats for convenience and energy savings.  I love that I can see and control everything from my iPhone. I have added lighting control, garage door control, and a keyless lock and everything works from my Apple iPhone.  My next project is cameras for my entry and driveway.

Working with Joe has been a pleasure.  He considers my needs and my budget when recommending options for me to consider.  I was comfortable with the process and I feel comfortable staying in the home I love.
