The definition of luxury in custom homes is constantly evolving and homeowners now look for various features and installations apart from fancy spas and slick alfresco spaces. Even as smart home technology has advanced by leaps and bounds, there are a number of gizmos that are specifically being made for the luxury real estate market. Today, properties that incorporate these latest luxury standards are referred to as “luxury smart homes”.
Using Technology to Create Luxury
For centuries, residential spaces have been the place where new technology has been tried and installed and home computers and home appliances are run of the mill. However, the latest buzzword in the residential luxury space is integration. It’s no longer considered sufficient to have the latest kitchen appliances, home theatres, surveillance systems and more. Today’s custom luxury home builders find that their clients want them to integrate various technological features in to the basic infrastructure of their homes.
Current day home automation technology is so highly advanced that it blends in seamlessly into your home’s design and gives you efficient control of your shades, temperature, lights, appliances, security systems etc. These also offer you the functionality to personalise your system with great ease so you can create the level of luxury lifestyle you want.
Creating Working Luxury
The concept of home design has undergone a sea change over the last few years and it’s not just about how a home looks and feels it’s about how it works. Custom home builders have smart home specialists on board, who work very closely with their clients to create spaces that have smart technology intermeshed into almost every installation in the outdoor and indoor areas of these homes.
From the minute you wake up to the time you retire for the night, there are various automation systems that can make your home luxurious, convenient and comfortable. As mentioned earlier, there are a number of things that smart technology can be used for and it can be easily incorporated into numerous features and installations.
Add Energy-Efficiency To Your Home
Aside from this, smart home technology also has a number of energy-saving features. Many homeowners are keen on using energy-efficient and “green” features in their custom built homes and smart technology fits in beautifully with these efforts. You will be able to control temperature and lighting as well as various home appliances even from a remote location, via mobile devices such as iPhones and iPads; this automatically adds to the energy- efficiency of your property.
For instance, you don’t have to keep the HVAC system running for hours while you are out, just to ensure that the indoor spaces will be at a comfortable temperature level once you come home. Instead, you can use your mobile to control these aspects while you are on your way back. So your home’s indoor temperature will still be just as comfortable as you want it to be by the time you actually reach your residence.
Customised Smart Home Solutions
The objective of all this functionality is to make smart technology an integral part of a luxury lifestyle; and this feature is now taking luxury living to a whole new level. What makes this kind of technology even more attractive is the fact that you can customise it in the manner you want to.
