Smart Home Weather Integration

Your home automation system knows the forecast outside, so it can adapt and alert you with recommendations.


Brighten Up

When clouds and rain move in, your system knows to brighten up the living area.

Instant Notifications

You’ll receive phone alerts when there’s any extreme weather events coming into the area.

Daily Recommendations

Your system can send reminders to open/close windows, balconies, and porch doors when it sees upcoming significant weather changes.

Tracks the Sun

When a hot sun is shining through your windows, your shades automatically drop to cool the place down.

“My wife and I recently bought our home and we were interested in adding some Smart Home functionality to it. We worked with Sameer to get everything up and running, and he has been so helpful and easy to work with. I also had some devices that I setup before getting Piston Home involved and he helped me get them connected to my home system and talking to one another!”

“I didn’t realize how quickly we would get used to the new automated lighting. And when we needed some tweaks, our Designer responded quickly to make our requested changes…It’s made mornings a lot easier as the automated lights turn on really dim when we walk into the kitchen at 6am.”

“The install process was seamless. Sameer and his team did this in what I consider record time, were beyond detailed in explaining the process of installation, walked us through the system, and were fully accessible as we learned the functions. It is by far the best investment we’ve made for our home and we couldn’t be happier!”

“I never realized how convenient smart home lighting and automation could truly make life easier within one’s home. Now my family never needs to worry about lights left on without abandon, water heater failures, or having to turn on a pull switch when opening a closet door. Thanks to our install tech Sameer who was amazing, for seamlessly integrating all these automations and making the home that much safer as well.”
