VERIZON has revealed how smart home gadgets can instantly slash your utility bills.
Upgrading your home with some clever tech can save you money in the long run.
Smart home tech gives you much greater control over what's going on your home.
And you can even make adjustments via an iPhone or Android app from thousands of miles away.
In an official memo, Verizon details some of the gadgets you'll want to try.
"These devices can help you save money in the long run," Verizon explained.
"Especially if you occasionally forget to switch off the lights or shut the garage door."
"If you’re new to smart technology, try a smart plug," Verizon said.
"Put the Belkin Wemo Mini Smart Plug in any wall socket, plug in anything — a lamp or coffeemaker — and control that device via an app."
The advantage is that you can turn these devices off remotely using an app.
And you can switch them on exactly when you need them.
This can save precious energy, cutting your bills.
Another option is to replace your regular lightbulbs with smart alternatives.
Not only can this save you energy by letting you dim or shut off a light bulb remotely – but it's also a great addition to the home.
"Smart lightbulbs adjust their brightness and can even change color," Verizon explained.
"Create settings for different 'moods' such as TV viewing or bedtime, and remotely turn lights on or off (great when you’re upstairs and accidentally left a light on downstairs)."
Finally, Verizon recommends trying out a smart thermostat.
This gives you total control of your heating, so you don't waste energy keeping your home warm (or cooled) when it doesn't need to be.
"Program a smart thermostat to adjust heat and cooling levels when you’re not home," Verizon advised.
"Some also learn from your in-home/out-of-home habits for a better, tailored experience."
