New Trends in Home Automation

Features of home automation

These days, many of us are pretty attached to our smartphones. And with good reason! We can keep in touch, check email, get directions, play games, view the weather forecast… you get the idea. One of the latest trends is “smart homes” – and those can be controlled by your phone as well!

What exactly is a smart home?

A “smart home” is a house that has some or most electrical features set up so that they can be controlled from your screen, remote, or smart device. So rather than having to turn on/off manually, or adjust any settings, you can make these changes remotely – from another room of your house or even when you are away from your home. This is called whole house automation, and we’ve been implementing it for happy clients for years.

HPR 0 261

When it comes to electrical repairs, hiring a professional will almost certainly be your best bet. Whether you’re looking for a minor electrical repair or looking to install whole home automation (and everything in between), it’s important to choose the right electrical contractor for the job.

Here are a few things to consider:

Safety

Working with electricity is no joke! One misstep can lead to disastrous results, like getting shocked, electrocuting yourself or someone else, or setting a fire. Even if you make it through the project unharmed, you could inadvertently install faulty wiring, which is the leading cause of house fires in the U.S. This is not a job for a newbie, and it’s really not a DIY project! Certified electricians will already have the necessary equipment on-hand and will know how to use everything safely. They can ensure your project is up to code and won’t cause you problems down the road.

Bring the Outdoors to Life

Exterior accent lighting on a home at nightAlthough Illinois weather has been playing a nasty joke on us this year, spring is here, and warmer weather is on the horizon (finally)! The arrival of spring weather means we’ll be spending more time outdoors, so let’s enjoy it to the fullest! And where better to enjoy it than from the comfort of your own backyard? Artful landscape lighting and complete audio/visual systems for your deck or patio are just a couple of ways you can enhance your outdoor experience this season.

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Exterior Accent Lighting

You work hard to make your house and yard look first-rate, but then night falls and no one can see it or use the space! A few well-placed exterior lights can highlight your home’s architectural features, which not only enhances the beauty of your home, it increases safety. Your house will appear more inviting when welcoming guests, and you can be sure no one will trip over a paving stone or miss a step. Simple accent lighting, such as deck lights or pathway lighting, can make a significant difference in the appearance of your home’s exterior.
