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.

Just wanted to take a moment to recommend an outstanding real estate agent. About a year ago my wife and I looked into buying a new house. We looked at exit realty's website and the next morning we received a call from Joseph Schneider. He is a true professional with an outstanding personality he will instantly make you feel welcome as if you're working with a longtime friend. My wife had unusual requests for the property and Joseph listened and found the property meeting all our needs. He is patient and knowledgeable I would recommend him to all. We purchased our new home in August and since then Joseph has remained in contact, just checking in from time to time. You can look but I doubt you will find a better agent !"
