STEWARD works with voice control, smart thermostats, door locks, garage doors, security cameras, and more. Learn more about STEWARD and how to get started in our Getting Started with STEWARD Guide.
Step 3: Set up your Rachio Irrigation Controller
Integrated with your STEWARD Start Home Automation System, Rachio uses local weather data to optimize your outdoor watering patterns to give your yard exactly what it needs. Take the guesswork out of watering so you can water your lawn more efficiently. You’ll keep your plants healthy, use less water, and save money, while you help save the environment. Upon move-in, you will need to verify your Rachio system is running a watering schedule for your existing landscape. Visit our Rachio Getting Started Guide to learn how to do that.
Step 4: Set up your Security System
Your new home also came equipped with a Security System by DSC, a world leader in electronic security. Your security system is tightly integrated with your STEWARD Smart Home Automation System, so you can monitor and control your home’s security system from anywhere in your home, or the world. Read our Security System Getting Started Guide to get the most out of your system.
Step 5: Set Up Your Copper Labs System for Utility Monitoring
Sterling Ranch uses Copper Labs technology to manage water billing as well as provide you with wireless real-time insights about your home’s energy and water usage. Each home comes standardly equipped with a Copper device in the basement and online account. Download the Copper Home Energy Monitoring app to easily access visualizations of your utility usage and receive recommendations on how you can conserve resources to save on bills.
Step 6: Make your Smart Home Even Smarter.
While the standard STEWARD Smart Home Automation System is pretty great, you will get the most from your system by adding connected devices such as additional lighting, door locks, garage doors, security cameras, and more.
