Powered by convenience, houses are turning high-tech and wired with the latest options for contemporary living. Many homeowners are requesting the ability to access their homes' security and services from a tablet or smartphone, even when they are miles away.
There are a number of ways to turn your home today into the house of the future.
Connect everything.The first step to a high-tech home takes place behind the scenes by adding low-voltage wiring. Telephone, intercom, alarm systems, audio, video, data, HVAC and networking capabilities can all be connected through wiring and cabling infrastructure within the home.
Enhance security.Many high-tech homeowners are replacing costly security systems and monitoring services with surveillance cameras that can be controlled, along with entry and garage doors, with a single system via smartphone.
Lighten up.LED lights are extremely energy efficient and a great product for a great price. Many companies have created cool lighting systems that provide solutions, such as geofencing technology, to provide lighting control with just a tap on a smartphone screen.
Control the kitchen.A number of appliance manufacturers have joined the wireless trend by providing apps that allow for wireless control, one of which a homeowner can use to start and pre-heat the oven. Another recently announced technology can even check the contents of the refrigerator while the homeowner is still at the grocery store.
Take it outside.Smartphone-operated flat-screen televisions and surround-sound systems continue to be popular outdoor living upgrades. Embellish it all with a fire table or an outdoor fireplace.
