Today’s smart home systems make living more convenient and provide peace of mind, when we’re at home or on the road.
As the smart home industry evolves and devices become more affordable and user-friendly, homeowners embarking on a remodeling project this year might consider installing a smart-home system at the same time — to save time and hassle.
Your remodeling contractor will certainly appreciate the heads up, as proper planning makes home renovation projects go much more smoothly. Below, we compiled a few smart-home devices to think about installing when it’s easier to get inside the walls to access wires, pipes, and more.
Feel Secure at Home and Away
Smart gadgets connect to the internet via a smart-home hub or apps on your cell phone.
Video doorbells alert your phone if they detect a stranger at the door, or your mother-in-law. Talk to either via your phone, and they won’t know if you’re in the kitchen or on the beach.
Home security cameras alert your phone to threats, and let you tell your Labradoodle to get off the sofa even when you’re away.
Protect the Family
Smart smoke and carbon monoxide detectors sound alarms in the house and send details about threats to your phone.
Some smart-house systems let you shut down your home’s HVAC ventilation system remotely to mitigate damage.
Enjoy Comfort and Save Energy
Smart thermostats detect where you are in the house and adjust the temperature for your comfort, while saving energy in empty rooms.
Manage temperatures and humidity for target times of the day via voice command, and program thermostats while you’re away for pet comfort and to prevent frozen pipes.
Did you leave the faucet running? Don’t worry.
Smart plumbing reports open faucets and leaking pipes to your cell phone. And the apps shut off all the water to your house at your command.
Enjoy Your Home and Save Toil
Smart appliances revolutionize family living and spare the chores.
Smart robot vacuums memorize your floor plan, run themselves at intervals you determine and now empty themselves into hypoallergenic, disposable dust bags.
And, any kitchen remodelling project should consider a smart refrigerator.
You don’t even need to open the door to see what’s inside anymore. Just knock and the refrigerator reveals its well-lit contents.
Don’t know when the milk expires? No problem. Smart refrigerators suggest shopping lists based on what it holds and when it will expire. It sends the list via your phone app, if you leave your smart house without one.
Smart refrigerators tell you when they need maintenance or when someone left a door ajar, ending surprise repairs and the expense of spoiled food.
