Smart home technology is one of the cornerstones of a luxury home. Not only does it make your life easier, but it also allows you to have the best-quality lighting, sound system and other amenities that money can buy. To that end, here are a few elements of smart home technology that you might want to look for in your next luxury home purchase. Of, if you are already a luxury home owner, you might want to consider making a few smart home technology upgrades.
Having a built-in iPad in the kitchen is one luxury home trend that continues to go strong. With just this simple addition, you can control your lighting, heating and music from one central location. You can also check the status of your home and make changes to its climate and lighting from a remote location if you desire. In this way, you can be sure the temperature is just right when you arrive home. You can even set the mood with the right lighting and music.
Programming Your Thermostat
If you don’t want to control your thermostat with an iPad, there are other high-end options available. One option is the Nest programmable thermostat, while another option is the Aros smart air conditioner.
Installing the Proper Speaker System
Of course, in order to get the most out of your music experience, you need to be sure to have the proper speaker system in place. SONOS is a good option for a luxury home. The high-fidelity speaker system allows you to play your music collection from any device and from any room in your home by connecting into your home network. The system can be set up quickly and easily and allows you to play different music in every room at the same time if you like. Or, you can set up the system to play the same song throughout the same house. No matter how you choose to use the system, all music is played in HiFi PLAY:5 quality.
Never Lose Your Keys Again
If you want to avoid misplacing your keys, consider installing a keyless entry device that can be coordinated through your smartphone. One popular option is the Ascend lock. For an even greater level of security, consider the Anviz system, which requires a fingerprint in order to gain entry. Anviz also offers facial recognition technology as well as iris scanning.
Increase Home Security
There are many home security options available for luxury homes. One popular option is the Dropcam, which is a surveillance camera that features night vision as well as a powerful zoom lens. The aforementioned Anviz also offers a variety of security camera options.
