Technology continues to evolve, from robotic vacuums to app-controlled lighting. Homes are getting smarter every day, as well. Today’s new technologies promise to make your custom home more comfortable, convenient, and secure. This will give you peace of mind from anywhere you might be. Here are a few ways smart home technology can help improve your lifestyle.

Connected climate control

Smart thermostats offer an easy way to get started in the world of smart home technology. These new models are usually more advanced and easier to set up than the older programmable thermostats. Smart thermostats help reduce energy usage, and costs, by learning your household habits and preferences. These thermostats can sense when someone is there and adjust the temperature accordingly. They also allow homeowners to create custom schedules to raise or lower the temperatures throughout the day. If you forget to turn off the A/C before you leave your house, you can now turn it off from your smartphone. Including this technology in your custom home can be both convenient and cost effective.

Smart lighting systems

New smart lighting systems can make your custom home feel warm and welcoming, without any extra costs. Smart lighting systems and light bulbs allow homeowners to reduce their energy usage and save money. An advantage to these systems is the ability to control them remotely, schedule them to turn off or on at specific times, and adjust their brightness.

Home security

Security is one of the most popular of all technology products. Smart home security systems can increase safety for families by allowing them to monitor activity in and around the property through monitoring kits and cameras. Window and motion sensors, smart garage doors, doorbell cameras, automated door locks, and audible alarms for doors are also available for your custom home.

Appliances and electronics

Appliances and televisions are getting even smarter. Smart appliances offer more control on how your food is prepared and stored. Coffee machines allow you to adjust the temperature, strength, and bean grind and refrigerators can tell you when you need to buy more milk. Smart televisions enable you to easily stream television shows and movies and control your child’s screen time. Using these types of technologies in your custom home can allow you to truly customize your unique lifestyle.

Voice-controlled assistants like Amazon Echo and Google Home work with other smart devices in your custom home to create a command center controlled by voice. These can assist you with everything from scheduling family events and listening to music to creating shopping lists.

Including smart technology in your custom home

Smart home technology continues to grow more sophisticated and popular, making your life easier. Automating your custom home can also potentially increase its resale value in the future.
