Finding a dream home today is more than a perfect floor plan or location. It’s about creating a home that meets the needs and demands of day-to-day life. Smart Neighborhood homes are equipped with cutting-edge technologies, capable of handling a multitude of responsibilities to help simplify routine tasks. Features can be managed through smartphones, tablets and via voice-activation for ultimate convenience.
Smart Neighborhood homes are built with the homeowner’s peace of mind in mind. Outfitted with smart systems, they provide a compatible network to help you manage and control various aspects of your home. From security monitoring to light and garage door control to setting your thermostat, you feel connected and in control no matter where you are – at home or while away.

What is a Smart Neighborhood?
A Smart Neighborhood is a community of homes, designed in partnership with Alabama Power, to give homeowners more control over their home and energy use by incorporating energy-efficient appliances, connected devices, innovative security systems and more home automation.
How can I learn about a specific Smart Neighborhood?
This page features all of Alabama Power’s smart neighborhoods. Simply click on the community you are interested in to go to the builder’s site to learn more about that specific development. If you don’t see the development on their website yet, feel free to contact the builder. They stand ready to answer your questions.
Is every Smart Neighborhood and home the same?
No. Each home is built with Smart Neighborhood features, but they may differ in style and offerings based on the individual builder’s and/or community’s design plans.
Will everything be set up for me in my smart home?
Smart homes are all about convenience, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to get set up. We will conduct a personal on-site orientation to help you set up your smart home and provide you with a guide that explains your smart home features. Additionally, you will be given online and phone support if you have questions about your smart home devices and appliances.
What are the benefits of having an electric vehicle and charger in my smart home?
Plug-in electric vehicles are environmentally friendly and can save you in fuel costs. In addition, EV drivers who are also Alabama Power customers can enjoy a discounted rate on their power usage during the EV charging period of 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Go here to learn more.
