Fit Your Home Automation Needs to Your Living Space
Smart Installations to Consider for Your New Home
A smart home can make everyday tasks a breeze for you and your family, but how easy is it to add smart technology to your home after it’s already built? There are different types of installations that work best for a living space, depending on if you’re a homeowner of a new-construction property or an already-built property.
In this blog, we’ll dive into a few smart home automation installations you should consider for your Lewes, DE home – and which are the recommended choices for your specific property setup. Find out more by reading below!
Custom Home Theaters and Media Rooms
A smart home entertainment system can benefit your living space in a variety of ways. Entertain and impress friends at your next party, enjoy a movie night with the family on a whim, and experience your favorite media at the push of a button from the comfort of your home. But which type of viewing setup should you go with: a custom home theater or multi-purpose media room?
If you have a new home-build, you have the chance to create a dedicated home cinema that is unique to your space and will also deliver incredible audiovisuals in an immersive environment that rivals the nearby cinema. You can integrate a private theater into your already-built home, but that means transforming the established basement or spare room and having to work with an existing layout. You can avoid this by installing a custom theater room during the construction of your new home.
You get to decide on the size, the layout, and other design aspects while crafting a space that elevates every part of your viewing experience. You’ll have more options when it comes to equipment and products—plus, the wiring installation will be hassle-free and less expensive, as you won’t have to knock down any walls.
If you have an existing home, you can make things easier and more cost-effective by creating a multi-purpose media room. This space doubles as a hang-out, family room-type area, while quickly becoming an entertainment center at the push of a button. The lights can dim, the shades can lower, and your TV screen can reveal itself from behind furniture or artwork as your entire AV system powers on. Adding these products and features is less extensive than a full-on home theater installation and could work better for your already-built home.
Lighting Design and Solutions
Lighting can completely change how a home appears indoors and outdoors. If you’re considering a smart lighting installation, we recommend partnering with a technology professional during the new-construction phase of your home build.
Bringing in a smart lighting installer like our team at Impact Home Technology during the new-construction phase allows us to work with your designers, builders, and other contractors on optimal lighting and keypad placement, as well as efficient wire installation. When your home is already built and an electrician has already wired your lighting, your desired automated lighting solutions are much more limited.
If you are moving into a home post-construction, you can still upgrade to smarter lighting control with wireless control solutions that feature customizable programming for keypads and dimmers. Though a wireless solution isn’t as robust and scalable as a hard-wired lighting system, you can still enjoy custom lighting scenes, set automated schedules, and integrate your lights with other smart home devices throughout the home.
