Sometimes, you aren’t needing a full renovation, but you do want to bring your home into the modern age of technology. These days we have more powerful technology in the palm of our hands than that which was used by NASA in the ’60s.
Home automation was once the stuff of science fiction, like the Jetsons and all the gadgets that went with it. However, these days with smart technology, many of those concepts are a reality now. A smart home conversion can equip your home with the modern conveniences of today and the future.
As an investment, smart home conversion makes fiscal sense as well. According to a recent study by Houzz, homes with smart integration are a major draw for home buyers—in fact, in the luxury home market, it’s expected. Smart home tech can make your home stand out in the market and potentially lead to a better sale.
Invest in your home with a smart home conversion from Envirocare. Some of the features we can add to your home include:
These days smartphones, smartwatches, and tablets are a major part of daily life. Most of them require USB outlets or bulky adapters to charge. By simply replacing your wall outlets with USB-enabled retrofits you can add a new level of integrated functionality. Say goodbye to those bulky adapters and occupied outlets.
If you really want to go all out, today’s smart assistants make it easy to fully automate your home. Before these devices, for example, you’d leave a light on before going out for the evening for security. Now, with devices such as the Amazon Echo in tandem with smart switches—you can do that from anywhere or on a timer.
It doesn’t stop there though, by combining that with a wide array of whole-home automation systems you can fully integrate your home. With a simple command, you can lower your automatic blinds, turn on the pool jets, set the mood for a movie, and more. The possibilities are limitless and it makes living in your come ultraconvenient.
Surround sound systems are a great way to bring the theater experience to your home, but they sure can be unsightly. Often needing to be hung from the ceiling on posts or mounted on the wall, they stick out like a sore thumb.
However, with custom speaker systems, you can mount speakers into your walls and ceiling for a flush fit, integrated look. There are even speakers for outdoors by the pool that are embedded into faux rocks to blend in. These speakers can be custom-matched to the color schemes in your home for seamless installations. Imagine asking Alexa to play your favorite playlist while cleaning and it plays all over the house. You can do it with smart speaker systems installed by Envirocare.
With all that technology, it makes perfect sense that security systems integrate with smart home automation too. You can add a security system with motion sensors, glass break sensors, motion-tracking cameras, and smart locks.
Wonder if you forgot to lock the front door? Not anymore. With these systems, it can sense when you’ve left and notify your phone if the door is unlocked. Simply press the button on your phone and the home is locked down, security system armed.
Want to check on those rowdy teens, the dogs, or the nanny while you’re out for the evening? Pull up the app on your phone and you can not only monitor but talk with two-way audio. There will be no wild parties or shenanigans and you’ll know which dog ate the couch pillow. Smart security systems are also a huge selling point should you choose to put your house on the market.
How often have you been laying in bed feeling uncomfortably hot or cold but are too tired to get up and change the thermostat? It’s ok, we’ve all been there. However, with a smart thermostat, you can change it with a simple voice command.
Additionally, a smart thermostat can learn your tendencies and how you like the temperature and predict your needs. Smart thermostats not only add convenience, but they also add a level of efficiency previously unattainable with traditional thermostats.
