Did you know that more than 25% of homeowners prioritize smart technology when renovating their place? It’s no more surprising that the smart home market is flourishing and is projected to grow multiple folds in the coming years.
In fact, having modern technology at your place potentially increases the value of your house. So, why not take advantage of this and consider the following options when renovating your space.
If there is a backsplash in your kitchen, you might have to rewire the outlets again. This is the time when you can technically upgrade your electrical system. You can go for outlets with built-in USB ports. So, you won’t require an adapter every time you want to charge your smartphone or tablet.
It is quite common that those wires take away the aesthetics of your living room. And usually, speakers or audio equipment are the culprits. Fortunately, we live in times when companies are offering custom speaker solutions that can be easily mounted directly to your walls, ceiling, or even the patio. You can even match such devices to the painting or the wall color.
Why go for those traditional lighting solutions when you can clearly use wireless transmissions to lighten up your place. And the best part is you can remotely change their intensity and change the colors if you use app-enabled bulbs.
While you can add security solutions to your house whenever you need them, it’s very easy to go for home security installation during a renovation. Using hi-tech solutions, you can remotely access your technology-integrated locks, lighting, or thermostat.
You can also include smoke detectors or automated emergency dispatch and avoid any fire or carbon monoxide situations.
If you want to improve the efficiency of your house, installing a smart thermostat will help you regulate the temperature of your house. Such devices can sense temperature changes, and if you upgrade the system, even more, you can control humidity, geothermal heat, and forced heat. That way, you can save on energy bills every year.
Living in the times of streaming services, dedicating an entire room to enjoy entertainment is no longer needed. You can use Wi-Fi and use home projectors to get the same feeling. And who can forget those smart televisions?
Transforming your house into a tech-enabled home has a variety of benefits. It allows you to monitor your house remotely and navigate the possible challenges if you left the door open or the lighting system on.
And it is even more beneficial in case you have elderly or children at your place. You can comfortably monitor their well being or keep an eye on the care providers remotely. It’s all about convenience in today’s time. And if you can do that with simple alterations, then why not?
So, are you upgrading your house? Or still thinking?
