Smart Technologies

Smart home technologies are becoming increasingly popular in new custom home construction, providing homeowners with enhanced convenience, security, energy efficiency, and comfort. Here is a list of some common smart home technologies that are often incorporated into custom homes:

  1. Home Automation Systems: Home automation systems serve as the central control hub for various smart devices throughout the house. These systems allow homeowners to control and manage multiple functions, including lighting, temperature, security systems, entertainment systems, and more, from a single interface or mobile app.
  2. Voice-Activated Assistants: Voice-activated assistants, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, enable homeowners to control smart devices using voice commands. These assistants can perform various tasks, such as adjusting thermostats, playing music, providing weather updates, and even ordering groceries.
  3. Smart Lighting: Smart lighting systems offer flexible control over lighting levels, colors, and schedules. Homeowners can remotely control lights using mobile apps or voice commands. Some systems also include motion sensors or occupancy detection to automatically turn lights on or off when someone enters or leaves a room.
  4. Smart Thermostats: Smart thermostats allow homeowners to remotely control and schedule temperature settings in their homes. These devices can learn and adapt to occupants’ preferences, automatically adjusting heating and cooling based on occupancy and weather conditions, resulting in energy savings and increased comfort.
  5. Home Security Systems: Smart home security systems provide advanced features like video surveillance, motion detection, and remote monitoring. Homeowners can receive real-time alerts on their smartphones, view live camera feeds, and even remotely lock or unlock doors. Integration with door/window sensors, smart locks, and motion detectors enhances overall home security.
  6. Energy Management Systems: Energy management systems help homeowners monitor and optimize energy consumption. These systems provide real-time energy usage data, allowing users to identify energy-hungry devices and adjust their usage. Integration with smart appliances, such as energy-efficient HVAC systems or smart power outlets, enables better energy management and cost savings.
  7. Smart Home Entertainment: Custom homes often incorporate smart entertainment systems for immersive audio and video experiences. This includes multi-room audio systems, wireless speakers, streaming devices, and voice-controlled TVs. Homeowners can enjoy personalized music playlists or stream their favorite movies and shows with ease.
  8. Smart Appliances: Smart appliances, such as refrigerators, ovens, washing machines, and dishwashers, offer advanced features and connectivity options. These appliances can be controlled remotely, provide status updates, and even suggest recipes or optimize energy consumption.
  9. Automated Window Treatments: Automated window treatments, including motorized blinds or curtains, can be programmed to open or close at specific times of the day or in response to environmental conditions. This feature enhances privacy, energy efficiency, and convenience.
  10. Smart Doors: Smart doors and smart garage doors are able to be locked, unlocked, opened and closed by the touch of a button on a smart device at home and remotely by the homeowner. Home owners are also able to see if the smart doors at their home are unlocked, locked or were even accidentally left open and close them remotely.
  11. Water and Leak Monitoring: Smart water and leak monitoring systems detect leaks, abnormal water usage, or humidity levels in the home. These systems send alerts to homeowners, helping prevent water damage and reduce water consumption.
  12. Stage Three Electric Vehicle Charging: Stage three electric vehicle charging units, also known as “Superchargers” are the quickest most efficient way to charge an electric vehicle
  13. Signature Integrated Power Storage : Homeowners are becoming ever more aware of the need to not only generate but to store their own energy. Battery walls, battery banks and more integrated into their home means that regardless of what natural disasters do to their local power grid, they have the power they need.
  14. Signature Integrated Solar Roof: The push for solar is all around us and it isn’t going away. A lot of homeowners don’t like the look of solar panels and even more don’t want them on their roofs. Who can blame them? Signature Custom Home Builders is an innovator in incorporating solar roof tiles into the roofs of the homes we build. These solar roof tiles look like traditional roof tiles but work as an integrated solar panel making a traditional looking roof into a powerful solar panel.

These smart home technologies contribute to a more connected and intelligent living environment, offering homeowners greater control, comfort, and energy efficiency in their custom-built homes. At Signature Custom Home Builders we are very proud of the fact that we lead the industry in these technological innovations and others which we incorporate into our projects and offer our custom home owners.
