To ease your transition into smart-home living, we have researched the latest trends, and how you can incorporate them into your home to be sure you get the very best of luxury realty living.
Keep It On A Single System
Before you embark on the journey of making your house a smart one, you’ll want to invest a bit of time researching and choosing the technology that is best for your needs. Having all of your automation products operate on a single system will go a long way in making sure you get the most out of your smart technology while making things easy for you, which is the main purpose of smart-home technology. Follow this link for a great rundown on the different Networking options available. If choosing just one won’t meet all of your needs, that’s okay—just make sure you get a hub or gateway that supports all the wireless technologies you’ll be integrating.
The Hub: Central Nervous System Of Your Smart Home
The hub is the main control system where all of your automated items “plug in,” figuratively speaking. One of the highest rated options is the Samsung SmartThings Hub that works with four different smart home protocols and will allow you to operate more than 200 products remotely, right from your smartphone.
Inside Your Home
From controlling your lights, door locks and security systems that allow remote viewing of the happenings inside your home, to turning up the stereo or adjusting the temperature, there’s not much you can’t do with today’s technology – from anywhere in the world. At just the touch of a button or even a simple voice command, the ability to control nearly everything in a smart home is right at your fingertips! Looking toward the future, it is also possible to pre-wire for growing technologies that may not yet be commonly adopted but may be needed in time – such as electric cars and solar power.
It’s not just your home’s interior that can be “smart,” either. Here in Arizona, water is precious, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have gardens and maintain lush, beautiful landscapes. For instance, the Rachio Iro Smart Sprinkler will ensure your sprinklers only come on when needed, regardless of whether or not you’re home, even accounting for the weather. And swimming pools are easily managed through smart-home technology as well. Weather reports warn of a dust storm in your neighborhood while you’re away? Not to worry! At the touch of a button, you can adjust the cleaning cycle for your pool remotely, thus eliminating any unpleasant backyard surprises when you return home.
There’s no better time to plan for the ease and convenience of a smart-home than right when you’re building and customizing a new one. Let Camelot Homes show you how. For more information on the best of luxury realty, contact us here.
