Three Smart Home Trends That Make Homelife a Dream
People are quickly embracing smart home technology to define comfort in 21st century homelife. Having the ability to control lighting, temperature and media – in some instances simply by speaking – is transitioning from a dream to reality.
While it is tempting to dismiss these changes as a passing fad, there is a lot to be said for having modern advancements integrated into your home. Here are three smart home trends that will make homelife a breeze.
Touchless May Soon Be Timeless
With so many things outside the home becoming contactless, it was only a matter of time before this technology became a part of your homelife. Many smart homes have touchless doorbells that not only let you know when visitors have arrived, but also record the approach, giving you peace of mind if some disturbance were to arise. By now, many already utilize the services of Siri, Alexa, or Google, with these digital friends quickly becoming housemates. Each can act as a hub for your smart home, and all work well to integrate your various systems and capabilities.
Integration Brings It All Together
Integration is truly how you take full advantage of smart home technology. When you are able to dim the lights, draw the shades and turn on the TV with a smart phone or your own voice, you begin to realize the ease that comes with integration. If you are using some of these components in your home but haven’t brought them together through integration, there are still more synergies to take advantage of. Reap the benefits of having a fully integrated smart home by connecting all of your devices to a single hub.
Take Charge of Your Energy Costs
Smart home technology has allowed homeowners to exercise more control over their energy usage. A smart thermostat will not only add comfort to your homelife when you are present, but it can also help save energy when you are away. This capability can save you significantly on your energy costs throughout the year, providing value as well as comfort. Similarly, automated window treatments allow you to harness the power of natural light to warm your space or dim incoming rays to decrease temperature. These treatments also act as a form of insulation, reducing the loss of energy and keeping your home a more static temperature.
Bringing It All Together in the Home
Connecting your home by following these smart home trends will make your homelife the most comfortable it has ever been. You can rest easy knowing that your home is secure, with all your customized comforts available at the touch of a button.
