Smart homes are increasingly in popularity as our reliance on technology is on the up. Having a home that can operate at the flick of a button makes life easier and makes your home way cooler. We’ve put together some of the best ways to add audio-visual integration into your home for modern living. Plus, you’ll be the envy of all your friends! Check out our top picks below
Lighting is an integral part of your home so operating it via electronic keypads will make your place far more functional. Ensure that you can quickly and easily switch all of your lights on and off in one moment without having to run to each room of your house. You can set up different environments for times in the day such as calming mood lighting in the evening or a gentle gradual rise in lighting as your alarm goes off in the morning.
Keeping your family and belongings safe should be one of your highest priorities. Adding security around your home will make you feel guarded. Invest in a good-quality automatic locking system for all of your doors. You’ll be able to get in and out of your home with a swipe of your finger or AI technology without the need for bunches of keys. Pair your locks with security cameras so you can see who is around your home. You’ll even be able to let your friends in for a dinner party without having to step away from the kitchen!
If you can’t be without your Alexa or smart speaker it’s time to step it up a notch. Add music to your home automation system so that you can have speakers blaring without having to move – that way you can save your energy for dancing! You can also use it to turn down your kid’s rap music blaring from their bedroom when they refuse to.
- Media Or Cinema Room
Any movie buff worth their salt should have a specific room dedicated to watching the latest Hollywood blockbusters on the big screen. Having an AV integrated cinema room will mean that you can have the lights go down, the sound goes up and your screen kick into life all at once. The only thing your smart system won’t be able to do is make your popcorn!
- Window Dressings
If you’ve always dreamed of living in a luxury hotel then smart window dressings are for you. Electric blinds and curtains will mean that you can control the brightness in your room without having to get off the couch and thanks to their timers you can shut them at night without having to get out of bed and have them open in the morning to a beautiful sunrise. You can even use electric curtains to cover your cinema screen and open them as the movie starts! Now that’s living in luxury.
