Preparing For The Future With Smart Wiring
Having a “smart home” is at the top of many homeowner’s wish lists. If you desire to be ahead of the curve and embrace new technology, then having a smart home may be on your custom home wish list too. A smart home is more than just Alexa, Ring, and Google Home devices. It’s a network of automated lighting, surround sound, surveillance and security, and much more that will introduce comfort, simplicity, and security into your family’s lifestyle.
Building a custom home is an exciting experience and a huge investment. We choose to build a custom home because you’re building your dream, not buying someone else’s. In order to ensure that your custom home will stay up to date with new technology, without a costly renovation, you need to integrate smart wiring during the custom home design process.
What is Smart Wiring?
Smart wiring is a typical home wiring system that allows you to combine your phone and fax lines, television cabling, home automation, surround sound, lighting, computers, and security into one central wiring system. This integrated wiring gives you the flexibility to add or change components in your home. Should you want to add additional lighting, a smart refrigerator, or upgrade your security system in the future, it can all be easily done using your smart wiring system. By adding smart wiring to your custom home design plan, you can start with a basic home automation setup, and upgrade as new technology emerges and your finances allow.
Smart wiring is a smart decision for any custom home design. Not only will your home be future proof, but the value of your home will dramatically increase as it can compete with newer, automated homes. Smart wiring will also save you money. Home automation improves the energy efficiency of your home as power, water, and HVAC systems are regulated.
It’s vital to plan your smart wiring and smart home automation as early in the design process as possible so it can be properly incorporated into the design and schedule of work. Lean on Putnam Builders to provide you with professional advice to help determine your smart home priorities now and in the future. With careful planning you can create a smart home that stays up-to-date with current technologies well into the future.
