3 Smart Devices to Enhance Comfort and Safety in Your Custom Home

The following technology should be considered for every modern home regardless of the size, layout, or style:

1. Wireless Security Systems

Safety is crucial for every custom home even if you are building in a great neighbourhood. To maximize safety and provide peace of mind for yourself and your family, it is worth investing in a high-quality security system. Smart security systems typically include wireless cameras, wi-fi door locks, and window sensors. Each of these devices can also be connected to an app, allowing you to monitor your home as needed and receive notifications for potential security risks.

2. Smart Thermostats

If you are looking for a way to keep your home comfortable while increasing energy efficiency, a smart thermostat is the perfect solution. These devices allow you to set an automated schedule for your HVAC system, allowing you to reduce the workload while you are sleeping or away at work. This reduces your energy consumption without compromising comfort, all without any additional effort on your part. Most smart thermostats can also be adjusted via a smartphone app, allowing you to make easy adjustments to your settings from any location.

3. Smart Lighting Systems and Blinds

To further optimize energy efficiency and comfort for your custom home, consider installing smart lighting systems and blinds. From motion sensors to wi-fi switches, there are many ways to enhance the lighting throughout your home. Motion sensors allow you to illuminate a room and turn the lights off automatically, enhancing safety, convenience, and energy efficiency. Wi-fi switches allow you to further enhance convenience and efficiency, as you can operate any connected lights or blinds from nearly any location. Many smart lighting systems also feature options for dimming lights and changing their colour through a phone app or dedicated switch, allowing you to tailor the lighting based on the time of the day or desired ambiance.
