We are living in the prime time of technological development! This is one of the reasons why high-speed internet is included in our Central FL community lifestyle fee. High-speed internet equips our residents with the most up-to-date options for ease of living, increased cost savings, and Wi-Fi-enabled appliances. Let’s talk about our smart home features available at Lakeshore.

Smart Home Devices

Smart home devices, which allow the remote monitoring and control of home features through hub systems, are a booming industry with major players and mass adopters. After all, let’s not forget that automation technologies have been around for decades. Remember the clapper?

Today, homeowners can still purchase separate technologies to control thermostats, sprinkler appliances, or door locks. But, let’s be honest, It is so much more convenient to have a centralized interface that you can access on your smartphone or tablet!

Simple Life has taken notice and is including high-speed internet (up to 100Mbps) in our monthly lifestyle fee at Lakeshore. Internet this fast can support all the latest smart home technologies.


Lifestyle Value Fee

What is a Lifestyle Value Fee? A monthly lifestyle fee means that you don’t have the responsibility of maintenance yet can still enjoy access to a variety of active lifestyle amenities.

But how does a smart home play into life at Simple Life?

Smart Homes And Their Security And Energy Management

Research shows that security and energy management are among the most significant reasons to include smart home technology in your tiny house cottage. After all, saving money, and feeling secure, engaged, and connected is what a downsized life is about. 

Now let’s discuss what smart home technology at Simple Life looks like. Let’s go through an example. You headed out to play a round of golf in the Central Florida sun and realize that it’s supposed to warm up considerably. You forgot to turn the thermostat down so that your cottage would be cooled off when you arrive home. No problem – simply grab your phone at the first tee box, open your app, and turn down the thermostat! Simple, right?

Top 3 Advantages of Having a Smart Home at Simple Life

Manage All Devices from One Place

The biggest factor here is convenience. After all, you have access to every control option in an easy-to-use app. Connecting all your home’s technology through one interface simplifies and streamlines device management.

Home Security

Another great advantage would be home security. From visualization on your front door to motion detection, your home can take a step up in the security department. Instant peace of mind!

Increase Energy Efficiency

At Simple Life, we choose our providers carefully. All of our smart home features have been designed to give you greater control over your home and your wallet. An example would be the programmable smart thermostats. They can be scheduled to maintain your desired temperature and learn your preferences for certain times of the day. This is one of the many ways we implemented to increase energy efficiency.
