No matter where your new custom home will be built, you can take advantage of the latest technology. For instance, smart features of all sorts are on the rise, and if you wish, they can be pre-loaded into your custom home instead of being upgrades that you add later on. What are some features and gadgets that can make your home life better? Join us as we find out!
Before we continue, it might be a good idea to define exactly what a “smart home” is supposed to be. For one thing, it depends on the so-called “internet of things” that you might already recognize from a workplace setting. In this case, it’s a residential setting equipped with appliances, lighting, heating, air conditioning, TVs, computers, entertainment systems, and security features that are all interlinked. One of the best reasons to have this configuration in place is that you can control them via smartphone or other mobile devices. All you need is a WiFi connection.
With the right smart plugs, you can achieve smart lighting that you can activate by voice. However, for this to work you’ll need a connected AI assistant such as Alexa, Siri, or Google Home. Your smartphone can also help you control the lights, especially when Bluetooth functionality is enabled. You can also save money and energy this way.
Now then, let’s talk about another aspect of custom home automation that could intrigue you: keyless entry. These systems feature integrated and customizable features so that you won’t always have to rely on your spare key if needed; that said, you will want to have a spare in a handy but concealed place nonetheless. Touchscreen deadbolts and intruder alerts are also elements of automated custom home security you shouldn’t ignore.
