Homes of the Future: Smart Technology for your Home
January 8, 2018
There are so many new technologies that have evolved for the home in the last decade. All are aimed at improving usability and functionality of everyday home items.
- Smart Thermostats. New smart thermostats are part of the energy saving revolution happening inside your home. Smart thermostats are designed to maximize savings by lowering annual heating and cooling costs. They can be preset to remember your schedule or monitored remotely. All this technology is available and easily programmable with the click of finger on mobile phones, so you don’t even need to be at home to make any changes. This mobile feature is especially valuable for those of us who forget to turn off the air when rushing our the door. Overall, smart thermostats are here to stay (and we’re happy about it!).
- Home Security. Home security technology has vastly improved over the years. More and more people are opting towards installing full home security systems to offer peace of mind that belongings and family members are safe in the case of a break-in. Live cameras can provide video surveillance in the event of an accident. In addition, many security cameras have features that allow you to watch live footage remotely from a mobile phone or device. This updated technology also allows users to double check and know that the doors are locked, the garage door is closed, and the windows are shut. In the event that a break in occurs, the home security system will trigger an alarm to both you and the local authorities. The added knowledge with these protections makes home security more and more common.
- Artificial Grass. Artificial grass no longer looks like the stiff, shiny material that was produced years ago. EasyTurf artificial grass technology is the best on the market, with soft multi-colored blades in different shades and blade lengths. The artificial grass technology has superior capabilities that looks and feels exactly like real grass. Even better than the general appearance, artificial grass has huge cost savings by eliminating water and maintenance costs. Once installed, Easyturf artificial grass saves money on water and energy, while also helping you maintain a lush, green backyard.
- Lighting. Smart light bulbs have advanced energy saving capabilities, limiting energy costs with ease over time. With the touch of a button, smart energy bulbs can transform the lighting in your home to create the perfect mood. Many different lights will come with varying cooling or warming colors, and many are available to be paired with smartphones.
These are a few winners in the home technology sphere. As time continues, these technologies will continue to improve and expand further into the spaces of our homes. What are your favorite home technologies? Let us know!
