Building your new home in southwest Florida is exciting! You will soon be living in paradise! Did you know that home automation has made it possible to control the functions of your home? The best time to install a system such as this is during the construction period. At this time walls are open, electrical and cable lines can be run, and you do not have to tear into existing drywall. With a new home build, you have many options in security features as well. Not only can you secure your home, but through home automation, you can control many aspects of your home with the touch of a button on your smartphone.
Technology has made it possible to be thousands of miles away from your home and know it is safe. You can control many features of your home such as lighting, thermostats, draw the blinds in a room, connect all of your media, adjust the pool temperature, and even feed your dog through your smartphone or any other device that can connect to the internet. These are just a few of the many conveniences that home automation offers, but it also offers peace of mind. It can tell you if a window was broken, you can check video surveillance cameras through your phone, and door sensors can alert you if someone has opened a door.
During a new home build, you can plan your home automation with the company who is installing your security system. Think through each room and how it will function for your family. For example: Does one set of windows face west? If so, you might want those to automatically close in the afternoon when the sun will be the brightest. Think of how you will use the home and how home automation can make it easier and safer for you and your family.
