NuTone’s latest software innovation learns what you like and need to create a more convenient and user friendly smart home experience  

HARTFORD, Wis.  – In today’s busy world, it’s easy to forget to do the simplest things: turn off the lights at night, unplug the curling iron or even shut the garage door when leaving for vacation. Instead of worrying about what we may have overlooked at home, wouldn’t it be nice if our homes remembered to do these things for us? With the new NuTone® Intelligent Home software, integrated home automation, from the living room couch or across the globe, is now automatic, or accessible from just a tap of the finger or by voice command.

The NuTone Intelligent Home service provides the ultimate home automation solution, placing peace of mind, energy savings, convenience and control at the sound of one’s voice and fingertips.  Thanks to voice installation, configuration, and control, NuTone offers essential technological intelligence behind a smarter home.  The service is not only highly intelligent but also proactive using external events like weather or pollen counts to automatically trigger reactions in the home, or engage the homeowner in a conversation on recommended actions to keep your family well.
