Smart home technology has made our lives more convenient, more manageable, and safer than ever before. While we have had thermostats for HVAC control, carbon monoxide and smoke detectors to keep us safe, and locks on our doors to keep out intruders for years, these devices have all had one huge shortcoming: if you weren’t there to set or respond to them yourself, you couldn’t really do anything about it. With smart home technology, you get both comprehensive monitoring and the ability to take action from anywhere in the world, 24/7! At Ponderosa Heating & Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical, we want to help you outfit your home with the smart home tech you’re looking for, whether you’re looking for a simple heating and cooling solution or a whole-home integration setup.

We offer everything from smart thermostat installation to home security setup to air quality and carbon monoxide monitoring. We understand the stress you’re under as a homeowner—we’re homeowners ourselves, and we have many of the same worries that you do.

Smart Home Security & Surveillance
We’ve all heard the terrible stories on the news of homes being broken into and vandalized or burglarized, and nobody wants their home to become part of these statistics. At Ponderosa Heating & Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical, our mission is to make sure you never do. We offer a variety of home security and surveillance products from industry-leading names like Nest and Ring, giving you round-the-clock eyes on your home and those inside it.
We can install a wide range of smart home security devices, including:
- Outdoor surveillance cameras
- Indoor surveillance cameras
- Doorbell cameras
- Automatically-locking doors
- Window opening sensors
- Smart lighting systems
Smart home security systems give you the unmatched ability to keep an eye on your home, even when you aren’t home at all. These systems are often motion-triggered, meaning when surveillance cameras detect someone or something walking around on your property, it can alert you via a notification on your smartphone. Your smartphone also serves as your way of seeing what’s going on yourself—your surveillance cameras can stream what they pick up directly to you, allowing you to take action if necessary.
Round the Clock Monitoring
Intruders are not the only threats your home faces—smoke, fire, and carbon monoxide are all serious problems that any home faces. And to make matters worse, they can start when nobody is home to take action and mitigate the problem. However, with smart home monitoring installed by Ponderosa Heating & Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical, you can be notified right away if your smart smoke and carbon monoxide detector detects any elevated levels of these gasses. In addition to emitting a loud noise and alerting anyone in your home, you’ll receive word right away via a smartphone notification so you can call for help right away if you need it.
Smart thermostats are quickly becoming an extremely popular and cost-effective upgrade to the most expensive appliance in your home: your heating and cooling system. These devices account for roughly half of the energy the average American home uses each year, and smart thermostats help that number drop drastically. They also give you unmatched flexibility and control, including giving you the ability to control your heater or air conditioner with your smartphone, monitor how much energy your HVAC equipment is using, and more. Some of these systems even self-adjust, using what it has learned about your climate preferences, real-time weather data, and data from sensors located around your home! This gives you a more comfortable home while keeping energy bills low—a combo that’s sure to keep any homeowner happy!
