Oh, the strides we’ve seen in just the last few years with our smart home features. Lights and locks turned off and on directly from your smartphone. Answering your Lake Havasu home doorbell from anywhere in the world. Thermostats that “learn” your family’s daily schedule so that they can adapt accordingly. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg, my friend. We’re seeing some new smart home technology that could become the norm sooner than you think.
New Smart Home Technology to Look Out For
We all know about LED lights. They save money and energy usage over fluorescent or incandescent light bulbs. But have you heard about the new smart home technology called LED flooring? We already see this technology utilized in airports, commercial office buildings, and on the dance floor. But LED flooring is coming to Lake Havasu homes. In low light-emitting situations (such as a fire or other emergency), LED flooring helps light your way to the nearest exit. It also provides an interesting design aspect to your home’s decor.
Smart Home Media Room
Fewer and fewer people head out to the movie theater nowadays. Instead, they opt to stay in for a preferred streaming service or on-demand video. Thanks to smart home theater products, your home’s media room provides the perfect movie viewing location customized specifically for your tastes. Some of the new smart home technology that will regularly find its way into Havasu homes in the next couple years are smart TVs, gaming systems, and surround sound. How is this different from today’s equipment? It will all be controlled via an app on your phone: the ultimate universal remote. And everything will work in conjunction with each other.
Smart Window Technology
Living in the desert, we understand what it’s like to have the sun sizzle through the windows in the summer. But we still enjoy our views. How do we cope? Smart windows. With the flip of a switch or touch of a button, transition your windows from day to night. Simple. Clean. Easy.
Everyone wants their family to be safe. That’s one of the reasons that home security has become such big business in recent years. Another one of the new smart home technology services we see trending is fingerprint security systems. Instead of using keys to lock or unlock your Lake Havasu home’s front door, personalized “keys” are literally at your fingertips. Each person authorized to access your home’s interior can be scanned into the locking mechanism. Eliminate access for someone who no longer lives there or add another authorized individual at any time.
Talking to the Appliances
Dr. Doolittle for modern times? Instead of talking to the animals, though, you can talk to the appliances. Not sure if you have enough ingredients for dinner tonight? Communicate with your refrigerator while you’re at the store. Pre-heat the oven on your way home to cut down on prep time, too. Busy days turn into hectic nights, especially during the week. Cutting down on extra running around or chores helps give you back precious time with your family.
These might sound a bit “out there”. But the new smart home technology we’re beginning to see right now could easily become the “norm” in Havasu households in just a couple of years. Which of these are you looking forward to the most?
