The advancement of technology in the past 10 years has been extraordinary and it has been making leaps and bounds to make the homeowner’s daily life a lot easier. There are dozens of potential projects you can undergo to create your own custom smart home and we want to highlight a few for you to think about.

Audio/Visual: There are so many different elements and cool things you can do with audio & visual. You can have different moods preset from a remote, your smart home speaker, or a light switch in your home! But you can also just opt for having a universal remote that you know how to work instead of trying to find all 6 of your remotes and wondering how to turn on your Blu-Ray. Wherever you fall in this spectrum we can make it happen!

Lighting: One can typically see different lighting features in smart homes that can be easily controlled and is great for the evening when you don’t need too much light.

Door Camera: Safety and security are very important to any homeowner. With new technology, you can see who is at your front door on any smart device wherever you are.

Thermostat: You can also purchase a smart thermostat that will help save money and increase comfort! You can set up geofencing so that your thermostat will turn off when you leave for work and turn back on as soon as you are getting close to home! The temperature can also be controlled through a smart device.

Voice Technology: Voice technology can be used in any of the above ideas for home automation! It all comes down to syncing everything up and you can control so many aspects of your home at the command of your voice!

All of these are great ideas to include in your home and makes day-to-day tasks simpler in the hectic world we live in.
