The comfort and performance of your home is at your fingertips

Smarter Homes by Minto Communities

Control the comfort and performance of your home through new home automation technology and one, easy to use app. Minto Communities is bringing you the Smarter Home, customizable to your lifestyle, where control of your own environment and system monitoring is just a tap or swipe away.

Monitor and control your Minto Smarter Home through a single app

New Minto Communities homes will be equipped with the essential components of a Smarter Home. As a qualifying Minto homeowner, you will receive the Starter Package, powered by Enercare Smarter Home™. These components connect you to your home’s thermostat, provide heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system performance monitoring, alert you to water leaks, and help you track and measure the performance of your home. This is all to give you peace of mind and control from one single and intuitive mobile app.

The physical components of your Smarter Home Starter Package are included (and yours to keep forever), and the subscription to the performance app is free of charge for the first three years, with no contracts and no obligations.

How it works

  • Once you get the keys to your new Minto Communities home, Enercare will send a representative to meet with you to install the remaining components of your Smarter Home Starter Package, set up and customize your mobile app and go over any questions you might have.
  • After installation, Enercare’s helpful team of representatives and technicians will be your go-to. They are available 24/7 for emergency response, call centre support, and offer same-day service.
  • For even more ease of use, your Smarter Home also integrates with Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and is compatible with iPhone and Android.

There are insurance savings opportunities when you own a Smarter Home, especially with leak sensors. Speak with your insurance provider about potential home insurance discounts.
