smart home technology in architecture custom homes and new construction projects

Why Home Builders are embracing SMART home technology

As if we’re in a real-life Jetson’s episode, today’s SMART home technology is allowing John to be able to start dinner while stuck in traffic on his way home, unlock his front door for a delivery while at the airport or check on what his dog is doing while in a work meeting.

Turns out… homes are getting smarter. Literally.

Quickly advancing digital technology has completely changed the home design process.

SMART home technology connects directly to your Internet. With only just a WiFi connection and some savvy programming, you’re able to automate basic tasks and monitor in-home systems.

Further, SMART home technology is designed to be naturally intuitive and super easy to use. So that homeowners can effortlessly add new apps and products to their system. As well as remain more connected to the protection of their property.

Devices that are connected to your home can send the homeowner notifications if any alerts, alarms or changes to the home environment occur. Especially if you live or want to build in a rural, quiet area, SMART home technology can give you incredible peace of mind.

The future in custom home building is calling

In a lot of ways, there’s no denying that technology has made life more convenient for us.

Imagine you could have everything in your home connected to your smartphone. How would you feel knowing that all of your devices are also able to send you information, updates and take your commands?

Today, there’s a number of SMART home products. Take your pick from high-security video systems, command-driven appliances, automated shade and window blinds, cooking utensils and more.

Start with the construction process

Equipping your home with SMART home technology starts with the construction process.

During the construction process, new homes should be wired properly. This allows for seamless wireless integration to support home automation products. Some of these products can include thermostats, lighting, garage doors, exterior door locks, appliances, entertainment systems, and security.

If you’re wanting to renovate your home to incorporate SMART home technology, fear not. It’s still possible. However, older homes can have issues with supporting wireless capabilities and reception might be inconsistent from room to room.

This SMART home technology can increase your home’s potential resale value

From a custom-home building perspective, it’s all about fusing tech with connected design.

If you ever choose to resell your home at a later date, prospective buyers can perceive any existing smart home technology to be a major benefit when in the market for a new home.

More and more home buyers are opting for technology capabilities in their home builds. In the same way that hardwood floors and granite countertops add impact, the reality is: technology adds value to a home. It’s not uncommon for a break and enter to happen while homeowners are on vacation or out of town.

As a custom-home builder, it’s part of our core mission to offer our clients with as many options and home-improvements for their future residence as possible.

As we always say, we build to last, and we keep the future of you and your family top of mind.

Keep in mind when considering incorporating any SMART home technology into your custom-home build, you want to cover the basics. Keep in mind, SMART home technology is often highly personalized. It depends on your needs and wants as a homeowner. One tech tool that matters to you might not matter to another.

With whatever products you inevitably choose, you want the tool to be incredibly easy to use, not noticeable in the design and reliable for everyone.

With this technology, your home has the opportunity to improve your quality of life in new ways.

We’re committed to building your dream home with innovation and change in mind. So that we can deliver the best possible product to you.

Quite simply, this is the digital age and we’re building homes for the future.
