Progress in tech is something we see integrating with home design more and more. With intelligent systems and appliances, a smart home can create efficiencies you didn’t know you needed in your living space. Essentially, smart tech transforms any house into an easy-to-use smart home.
Jumping into a smart home system might seem daunting, but rest assured adding these features will add efficiency to your day, bring you peace of mind, and allow you to keep tabs on your home from anywhere in the world. Smart home technology is becoming a standard in new builds and renovations for a myriad of reasons. Let’s talk about the what and why.
What is a smart home system?
A smart home system is a homeowner's answer to the question: how can this be easier? Through AI, smart tech enables ease of use wherever you need things to be more efficient or convenient.
Did you know that you can also get smart plugs to make electric sockets more energy efficient? All of this, controlled by a touch screen on the wall and from your phone.
What are the benefits of a smart home?
Believe it or not, having a touchscreen can make a big difference in your home life — and not just because you can dim the lights on date night or turn on the kids’ favourite music. With a smart home build or transformation as part of a home design, homeowners are making a decision that can create the following benefits:
- Lower insurance premiums
- Energy efficiency = lower utility bills
- Simple, effective, custom functionalities to make life easier
- A more secure home
- And so much more!
If you’re a homeowner that spends time travelling or at a vacation property, smart tech allows you to check in on your homes, turn lights on and off, set and change thermostat temperatures from your phone. There are also features to alert you when something like a flood or fire happens, so you can take action and mitigate the damage. This peace of mind is invaluable to those of us who want to protect our investments.
