We’ve come a long way in the past several decades. In fact, 50 years ago, refrigerators that dispensed ice cubes were brand-new – Frigidaire introduced the first ice dispensers (they were tucked inside the freezer door) for home use in 1965.
Today, you can control your home’s temperature, security alarm system, and just about everything else in your house from the 3-inch-by-5-inch device that you can also use to make phone calls, update your Facebook status and take pictures of your kids’ soccer games.
It’s no wonder that smart technology is changing the way we design custom homes. Smart tech gives homeowners dozens of benefits, so it’s a good idea to take advantage of what you can. (We built the HGTV Smart Home in 2014, so we’re very well versed in technology that gives homeowners complete control over their homes.)
What Smart Tech Can Do for Your Home
Smart tech can help you manage your energy costs, keep your home safe and secure, and generally make your life easier.
New smart bulbs – a step beyond smart switches – can turn on and off based on whether you’re in a room (they’re like backyard motion sensor lights) and change color based on what you’re doing. Remote access cameras can let you look in on your home from thousands of miles away, and new technology can even let kids play game systems from any room in the house.
