As home builders, one topic that we talk about more and more frequently with clients is home automation in new homes. New products are debuting on a regular basis, and sometimes it’s difficult to make sense of all the changes in the industry, and how to implement those changes into your new home.
Today, you’re able to control virtually everything in your house through an app from your phone or tablet. One of the common components that we discuss with home automation is app-controlled thermostats. There are a number of options available for controlling your thermostat from the Nest thermostat to the Ecobee thermostat and Honeywell, among a lot of other options. These allow you to set, and control your thermostat from your phone or tablet while you are at home or away from home. Some thermostats are actual learning thermostats that learn your habits on a day-to-day basis and will automatically adjust your temperature settings based on how it has learned your personal schedule.
Home automation doesn’t stop there, you’re also able to control your home’s irrigation system with products like the Rachio, home security systems and cameras from companies such as Nest and Amazon, your homes garage door opener with products like the Chamberlin MyQ, and even your shower with the U by Moen. These products only begin to scratch the surface of home automation is capable of, and what we at Secure Built Custom Home Builders can do you for you when we construct your new home.
