Imagine this: It’s been a long day. You pull into the garage, and the door to your house unlocks automatically. As you walk in, the lamps come on. Despite the fact that it’s been an incredibly hot day, the temperature is perfect. You collapse on the couch and ask the TV to play the latest news update. Sound like something out of a futuristic film? It’s not. It’s fairly standard smart home technology, and it not only offers automated convenience to homeowners, but enhanced energy efficiency and safety as well. Integrating this into a new build can not only be a real selling point for a family, but it can also help future-proof every home you create.
Understanding Smart Home Technology
Building a smart home is far more than simply adding an Echo Dot in every room of the house. Instead, it involves adding a system of interconnected devices that communicate with each other and can be controlled from both a smart phone and voice commands. Smart home technology allows homeowners to manage and control various aspects of their home, including lighting, heating and cooling systems, security systems, appliances, entertainment devices, and more. They’re fully automated, too, so homeowners can set up routines, schedules, or rules that automate tasks based on specific conditions or events. For example, it’s possible to schedule the lights to turn on and off at specific times, have the thermostat adjust the temperature while the homeowner is away, or receive notifications and video feeds from security cameras when motion is detected.
Integrating Smart Home Technology From the Start
The key to creating a truly smart home is thinking about it from the start of the build. Ensuring the system components are all seamlessly integrated is essential, because smart homes demand multiple interconnected devices and a complex combination of software and hardware, as well as the networking to connect devices.
