Keeping Up with Smart Home Technology
Updated: Mar 10
The invasion of Smart technology has not just made life easier, it’s changed the way we live. It’s no longer enough for Amazon, Apple, and Google to be on your Smart phone and in your Smart car. They want to make your house Smart too. All the new and coming Smart technology may be confusing to navigate for some, but North Mark is here to help provide a better experience in every new home.
One of the best things about Smart gadgets is that they can create a safer and more accessible home for everyone. Sure, streaming your favorite music with Alexa is fun, but programming Alexa to lock your doors or turn on your security alarm from a remote location adds a layer of convenience to life. Smart devices can lower energy usage, alert you when there’s an emergency and even help clean your home. With the right products you can monitor almost every aspect of your home—even see what’s in the refrigerator—when you are at work or half a world away.
It’s all in the Hub
Most Smart home technology requires a hub like the Amazon Echo, Google Home or Apple HomeKit. Everything from wireless light bulbs to automated vacuums can be controlled through the hub which is controlled by you, either by voice command or through an app on your Smart phone. With advances in wireless technology, it’s no longer necessary to hardwire in automatic control systems during construction. Any number of Smart devices can be added as you need or want them, they don’t even need to all be from the same maker. And that’s a good thing since the world of technology is constantly producing new and amazing devices.
Whether you’re building a custom home with North Mark Homes or purchasing one of our move-in-ready dreams, we can help you decide how much and which types of Smart technology will make your new house feel more like home.
