Powered by convenience, houses are turning high-tech – wired with the latest options for contemporary living. Homeowners are requesting the ability to access their homes’ security and services from a tablet or smartphone, even when they are miles away. As members of the Remodelers Council, it is important for us to keep up with the latest gadgets and hottest trends for high-tech homes, so that we can provide our clients with the most accurate smart home ideas for 2022.
The first step to a high-tech home takes place behind the scenes by adding low-voltage wiring. Telephone, intercom, alarm systems, audio, video, data, HVAC and networking capabilities can all be connected through wiring and cabling infrastructure within the home.
Install a Smart Home Security System
Installing wiring for cameras is a common request from our clients. Homeowners are replacing costly security systems and monitoring services with security cameras and want the ability to control the cameras, as well as entry and garage doors, from their smartphones with a single system.
Lighten Up Your Smart Home
LED lights are a common request from our clients because they are extremely energy efficient and a great product for a great price. Many companies have created cool lighting systems that provide solutions, such as geofencing technology, to provide lighting control with just a tap on a smartphone screen.
Control Your Smart Kitchen
A number of appliance manufacturers have joined the wireless trend by providing apps that allow for wireless control, one of which a homeowner can use to start and pre-heat the oven. Another recently announced technology can even check the contents of the refrigerator while the homeowner is still at the grocery store.
Smart Home Devices for the Backyard
Smartphone-operated flat-screen televisions and surround-sound systems continue to be popular outdoor living upgrades. Top off your outdoor entertainment system with smart lighting control that adds convenience, decoration, and safety to your space. Embellish it all with a fire table or an outdoor fireplace.
