Monitor and moderate the energy use of your home with the convenience of your smartphone.
At Building Sciences LLC, our team loves to find new ways to use technology to save you money and make your North, Central or Shore area Jersey home more energy efficient. Going away and forget to lower the thermostat? Use your IPhone or Android device to regulate the temperature and humidity of your home while you’re away. Schedule the window shades to lower when the sun is radiating at its highest. Unlock the doors from your work computer when a service technician is scheduled to be at your home and lock them again when they leave.
Home automation has been a developing field for decades, but with recent advances in mobile technology the possibilities are more affordable than ever!
Connected "Smart" Home Services
Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC)
There are so many ways to have more control over the air quality of your home. Get an internet-controlled thermostat to control the temperature and humidity with your smartphone. We can even add a system that allows you to open and close your windows automatically! At Building Sciences, our goal is to help you save money, reduce your energy costs and make your life easier.
How many times have you entered a room and realized that someone forgot to turn the lights off after leaving? We can automate the lights in your home based on a specific time cycle or even through motion sensors, detecting when you’ve left the room. One of our favorite services is making better use of natural light by automating window shades to regulate the level of light in your home with very little energy use required.
Conserve water during the summer by installing sensors that detect the rain and shut off your sprinkler system. Undetected water heater leaks can cost you thousands of dollars in cleanup costs during the summer, not to mention what happens during sub-freezing temperatures in the winter! The solution here is simple--install a water heater shut off kit that detects leaks and activates a shutoff valve.
Security & Surveillance
We can give you the peace of mind that everything and everyone in your home is protected. You will be notified immediately and able to respond quickly with smart tools like security cameras, pet monitoring and integrated detection systems to monitor your fire alarm, gas leaks, carbon monoxide and water leaks. Working late one night? We can even automate your lighting with presence simulation, making it look like you are home and warning off burglars.
Audiovisuals & Other Systems
Ready for movie night? Connect multiple audio or video sources to one or more rooms and set the mood by automating lighting and blinds. Other systems we can install help to detect and monitor vehicles, regulate swimming pool systems and remotely control cooking appliances.

Significantly Lower Your Energy Bills
Home automation systems can allow you to lower heating and electricity usage by working around your occupancy schedule. You may even gain the ability to utilize natural, renewable sources of energy to supplement your traditional energy systems. Our team can, for instance, automate window shades for lighting, ceiling fans and windows for heating and cooling and shutting off sprinkler systems when rain is detected.
Simplify. Simplify. Simplify.
We all say that we need to simplify our lives so that we can enjoy what really matters in life. By gaining control of your home automation systems on your smartphone, you can reduce the amount of time you spend regulating them. In addition, you can get more specific information about your energy usage, which can help you discover more ways to reduce it.
