Imagine this: your home warms before you rise, the song you’ve been obsessing over builds into existence early in the morning, the shades slide up and fresh sunlight spills into your room. No, this isn’t a movie scene, it isn’t Tony Stark’s new tower, nor is it the new TV series persuading us that only billionaires can live comfortable lives. This is a dream brought to life. What does your dream home look like? Let us help you make it a reality.

Of course, technology is expensive, but it’s doable, reliable and depending on your dream lifestyle, worth it. Intelligent homes are, in short, houses with “appliances, lighting, heating, air conditioning, TVs, computers, entertainment audio and video systems, security, and camera systems that are capable of communicating with one another and can be controlled remotely by a time schedule, from any room in the home, as well as remotely from any location in the world by phone or internet” (Smart Home https://www.smarthomeusa.com/smarthome/.
These intelligent homes can do a multitude of things, including but not limited to:
- Giving you the ability to control lights using your Apple Watch, cell phone, or other electronic device.
- Giving you the ability to control your bath and water system before arriving at home.
- Playing your favorite songs when you wake up.
- Opening your shades.
- Exterior lights automatically fading on and off at customizable times of day.
- Playing music when prompted, like while cooking.
- Quick-Commands (a short phrase or word you select to be the trigger for a series of specific tasks) can prepare your home for dinner with friends. For example: saying or selecting (depending on your system) “prepare for dinner” could turn on a specific song or playlist, the lighting would change, your driveway lights would turn on, and other little surprises as well.
- Good morning and good night functions can do whatever you want to save money for example (decreasing and increasing the air conditioning use has been done).
