Though, I have to say that, as a Designer, I'm not so excited by technology or the gadgets alone but when put together with a great design solution that creates a beautiful look and provides a superior functionality in any given space - that what makes my heart sing.
The technology has certainly changed how we live our lives, for better or worse, and at the end of the day we just cannot live without it. From our addiction to smart phones and tablets, it is only obvious that our homes will get wired and digitized next. The home automation it is not a new field and it has been around for a while, though it was quite cost prohibitive to be implemented widely but today the technology is getting cheaper and more accessible to all of us. Are you ready to make your life easier with Smart Home technology?
Here are my reasons -why- to implement smart home solutions into homes:
1) Convenience & Simplicity -
It is automation of the home, housework or household activity. Home automation may include centralized control of lighting, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), appliances, security locks of gates and doors and other systems, to provide improved convenience, comfort, energy efficiency and security.
2) Energy Savings - From dimmers usage alone...a lot $$$ to save on energy.
3) Privacy & Safety + Designer Fabrics - The safety of our homes can be monitored by us via smart phone or tablet, and we can be alerted to any changes that happen to our homes instantaneously. Also, when in home we can operate and control the privacy of our window treatments, blinds and drapery with easy touch of a button so we do not need to be acrobats to reach those high windows, don't you agree.
And not to mentioned, the designer fabric solutions are endless and prettier than ever provided by my trusted vendor - Lutron. That's where great Design and Technology intersect and offer a complete lifestyle solutions for you home.
