Smart home technology is an easy way to increase your home’s security and create a heightened custom luxury experience by installing devices and appliances you can control from anywhere in the world. Today, there are smart versions of many devices in your home, from lighting to appliances to your home’s heating and cooling system. At Matustik Builders, we continuously stay ahead of the curve, embracing the newest smart home technology trends to provide you with the best living experience possible. So what’s new in smart home tech for 2024? Here are a few of our favorites.
Advanced Home Security
High-tech home security systems used to be a luxury, but they’re becoming more advanced and affordable by the year. Several new products have recently come out that can improve the security in and around your home. Self-monitoring options such as Ring are great for keeping track of who is showing up at your home whenever you aren’t around. These systems come with companion apps on your smartphone that can allow you to view your doorbell camera from your phone.
In a post-COVID-19 world, more homeowners are concerned with the spread of germs and staying healthy. Touchless doorbell technology allows guests to announce their arrival without having to touch a shared surface.
The new facial recognition feature is one of the biggest upgrades to home security cameras in recent years. When setting up a camera with a facial recognition feature, you can create profiles of individuals by taking a picture of them in real-time or using an existing photo. From there, the facial recognition technology distinguishes faces as they pass in front of the camera, and singles out those it recognizes in your database of familiar faces from those it does not. New doorbell cameras like the Google Nest feature this built-in facial recognition technology, and often cost under $200.
Smart thermostats are easy to install, and allow you to customize the temperature in your home based on your living patterns. Many smart thermostats will learn your preferences and allow you to create a schedule that auto-adjusts the temperatures when you’re asleep or away from home. They’re also Wi-Fi-enabled, so you can remotely control your heating or air conditioning from your smartphone. In addition, many energy companies offer rebates to homeowners who install smart thermostats, making this new technology a convenient and economical choice.
Smart Lighting Home Technology
Recent innovations in smart lighting add functionality to many rooms in the home. For example, if you tend to fall asleep with the lights on, smart lighting can fix that with a timer. Built-in motion detectors can add convenience by automatically turning lights on and off whenever you enter or leave a room. For ambient lighting throughout your home, smart lighting systems can customize your home with varying colors depending on the situation, and can save energy and improve safety in and around your property as well.
