The Latest and Greatest Smart Home Technology Trends
Oct 27, 2014
Looking to read up on the latest home automation trends? You have arrived at the perfect place. If it has been awhile since you upgraded your smart home or you have yet to automate your home at all, below we will discuss three smart home technology developments that every Phoenix smart home owner should consider.
Aesthetically Appealing Smart Home Gadgets
Smart home gadgets were never ugly, but they are getting more and more beautiful by the day. Today's sleek and versatile smart home controllers can work well with any home's design. Smart home gadgets also make having walls full of switches to control lights, fans, and other home environment enhancers unnecessary. Some of the most attractive smart home gadgets around today include the Nest Learning Thermostat, August Smart Lock, Philips Hue Connected Lightbulb, Alima Air Monitor, and Sony 4K Short-Throw Projector.
Automated Door Locks
Traditional entry door locks can be bumped and picked all too easily, thanks to the dissemination of knowledge of techniques that were once hardly known. With a maximum security deadbolt and an a smart door locking system, you can make your home's entry doors as impregnable as some of old Europe's most well-defended castles and fortresses. You also do not have to worry about making and distributing so many copies of keys. You control who has access to your home, and you can change the code that unlocks your automated doors at any time. With an automated door lock, you can also check to ensure that your doors are locked when you are not around and choose to be alerted at anytime that a smart home door is unlocked. Talk about security and peace of mind.
Smart Home Security Systems
Do you worry what your gardener, pool cleaner, or housemaid are doing with the time they spend on your property when you are not around? How about your kids? Wouldn't it be nice to check up on them to see that they arrived home safely from school while you are still at the office and that they aren't playing video games when they should be watching TV? With the latest smart home security solutions, all of this is possible. All you need is a CCTV security monitoring system that is configured so that you can view live security feeds from your smartphone? Keeping those on your property accountable for sticking to their responsibilities has never been so easy.
