Turn Your Lehigh Valley Construction Project into Somebody’s Dream Smart Home
When building an entirely new home, you have an opportunity to include certain features that may be more difficult to install after the house is built. Smart home technology is more popular than ever because it allows homeowners to control and customize their homes to suit their needs.
If you’re building a house in Lehigh Valley, PA, whether it’s for yourself, a client, or to list on the market, you should consider adding Lutron and Alarm.com products and services before the walls go up. Here are five reasons to add new smart home integration solutions to your new construction.
1. Increased Security
At its core, Alarm.com is a home security system. You can install smart doorbells, video cameras, smart locks, and more throughout the house to give homeowners complete control of their homes. However, homeowners can also interact with those knocking on the door by looking through their smart doorbell on their phones and see video footage of the entire house. By installing smart locks, they can remotely lock and unlock their doors, whether they’re in another room or miles away from home.
2. Better Home Management
Alarm.com doesn’t stop at home security. Homeowners can control their entire home from Alarm.com’s platform. For example, by using smart water valves, an Alarm.com system notifies homeowners when there’s a leak. If a smoke alarm goes off, the system automatically shuts down the HVAC system to prevent the spread of toxic fumes. Homeowners can verify or cancel the alarm from their phones.
Lutron lighting and shades integrate with Alarm.com too, allowing users to turn on/off lights in any room or open/close motorized shades from a smartphone.
3. Customized to Your Needs
Homeowners can set scenes with Alarm.com to automate their homes to their preferences. For example, a wake-up scene sets the temperature, lights, blinds, and any other technology to automatically adjust to preferred settings. So if a homeowner prefers to wake up with the blinds open, the window treatments open automatically.
4. Energy Saving
Everybody wants to cut costs on the utility bill. With smart technology like Lutron and smart thermostats, that’s easier than ever. For example, Lutron lights and shades sense when a home needs natural light and when it needs artificial lights. By using more natural light, electricity usage will decrease.
Smart thermostats also save energy by knowing when to keep the house cool. For example, when the homeowner isn’t home, the smart thermostat turns off the heating and cooling. Before the homeowner returns, the system adjusts the temperature to the preferred comfort level.
5. Improved Home Value
Smart home systems are taken into consideration when appraising a home. The more smart home technologies you have and the easier a home is to control, the more it’s worth. This is a great reason to include new home smart integration solutions for builders looking to sell. It’s much easier to add smart home technology while the home is still being built, making it much more attractive to potential buyers.
