Smart Hosting with your Smart Home

Having guests stay in your home can be a stressful time for even the most seasoned of hosts. Ensuring visitors are comfortable and have everything they need is often a full-time job.

Luckily, you can utilize the features of your smart home to make things a little easier, leaving you to enjoy time with your friends and family.


Fresh for your Guests

Keep guest rooms smelling fresh without wasting money by using motion sensors, smart switches and a fragrance plugin. Set a Rule so that your smart plug is activated only when someone enters a room and rest easy knowing your guest bedrooms are scented to perfection.



Cosy Quarters

Smart thermostats can help you ensure your guest quarters are heated or cooled to the right temperature, without having to enter each room to check.

If you’re renting or are unable to install new thermostats, a Duraflame heater works just as well. All can be controlled and monitored right from your smartphone.



Approved Access

Avoid the security risk of handing out keys by using personalized pin codes on your outdoor smart locks.

Simply add ‘People’ to your Iris account, let your guests know their individual code and remove when they depart.


No More Bumps in the Night

Use connected lighting alongside motion sensors to light hallways and bathrooms for guests who may be unfamiliar with the layout of your house. Now if guests go wandering at night there won’t be any bumps or bruises!


Enjoy hosting your friends and family for a stress-free stay with these easy tips from Iris.
