3 Helpful Automation Upgrades for Your Next Remodel
Make your Bellaire, TX, home safer, smarter and more secure with these home automation systems
Remodeling your home can be a chaotic project, but it presents opportunities for positive change. Change, after all, is the goal when you make major renovations to your home, so why not make the most of this exciting opportunity?
With this idea in mind, remodeling your home is the perfect time to install home automation systems, in particular anything that requires wiring in your walls. Below we’ve listed several systems you can add to make your Bellaire, TX, home more comfortable, safe and inviting.
HIDDEN TV AND SPEAKERS
Speakers and TVs take up considerable space in a room and are not the most appealing things to look at. You can avoid this problem by creatively hiding your equipment.
Install your speakers inside the walls or ceiling, and you can keep your TV stored in specially designed furniture or behind a wall panel until you want to use it. Another option is to hang a mirror TV that displays a reflective glass surface when not in use, or a piece of artwork when the screen is off.
Hiding your display and speakers in this manner leads to a cleaner interior design while minimizing clutter. If you haven’t set up a whole home audio-video system, your remodeling project is the ideal time to expand your system across your home.
SMART APPLIANCES AND OTHER AUTOMATION
Imagine controlling the temperature, lights, shades, and more in your home from a single device. Home automation systems can make this dream a reality by bringing control of these individual systems under one unified interface.
Using all the devices in your home is much simpler once you can manage everything from one remote instead of multiple devices. You can also program custom scenes that combine multiple systems and actions into one command, making things even more simple. For example, you could set up an “away” scene that locks your doors and windows, lowers the shades and sets the temperature when you leave for work. And it all happens with one press of a button.
There are several security solutions that are much easier to install when you’re renovating your home. Outdoor and indoor surveillance cameras, motion sensors, smart doorbells, and other systems can all give you greater peace of mind.
Even better, these devices can be integrated for increased versatility. Your smart doorbell gives you a constant view of anyone at the front door, while cameras and motion sensors can send you alerts in an emergency. You’ll just want to make sure your home network can handle all your devices.
