Are you purchasing a new home build? Or are you working with an architect to construct the house of your dreams?
In a new home, you’re free to create exactly what you desire. You won’t have to partake in the bidding war, and you won’t be repairing or updating the floors in a few years.
Another benefit to building? New construction is the best opportunity to install home automation. Smart technology can be wired discreetly through the walls for a clean, sophisticated system.
If you’re unsure about smart home control, read on to see why you won’t want to miss it in your new construction. As a technology integrator that serves the University Park, TX, area, we’ll shed some light on what to expect in a Control4 smart home. You can also learn more in our blog series here.
Imagine: as the sun starts to set, your lights automatically transition into a warm, golden tone. Shades and drapes close, and your thermostat lowers or raises to your preferred temperature. Landscape lights turn on outside, and with one tap on your phone, music wafts across the whole-home speakers. With smart home control, this can be an everyday reality.
A smart home system like Control4 unites all your home’s subsystems into one. This can include:
You’re then free to control and automate the technology your way. Group technology into rooms from your phone or tablet, and create custom scenes like “Morning,” “Night,” and “Away” that you can activate at one press of a button. Or tell your voice assistant to set the lights to 30 percent brightness—and it will respond. Automated schedules can prompt your technology on a routine, so your house takes care of it for you.
In existing homes, it’s tricky to wire dozens of devices without visible wires. A new home build is the perfect chance to run cables and wires through the walls before they’re sealed. So even if you aren’t sold on a whole-home system, you can leave space open to add more devices in the future.
During construction, this is the perfect chance to include in-wall or in-ceiling speakers and recessed smart lights that will all connect to an intelligent home network. Your technology integrator, like Texadia Systems, can work with your architect or designer to plan for hidden in-wall installations.
