Doorbell cameras and home automated devices like Alexa have been a popular part of smarthome technology for a while, but there’s so much more. Glenn Layton Homes, a custom home builder in St Augustine FL, has been at the leading edge of smarthome technology since building a smarthome for HGTV back in 2013! A lot has changed since then, but Glenn Layton Homes stays up to date and we make a lot of smarthome technology a standard part of every home we build, including in the new community of Marsh Point.
Home security cameras through various home protection systems have been around for a while, but they’re sharper and more effective now, capturing a wider range. Not to mention, you now have more control over what they see, even when you’re away from home. Thanks to apps, you can control your cameras when you’re away from home if you want to check on various aspects of your home. This is a great feature for everyone, especially if you go on long trips and don’t want to come home to any surprises!
Another great security measure that provides peace of mind on multiple levels is the smart door lock. You can lock and unlock your door from a phone or tablet, without you having to be there. So if you suddenly remember you forgot to lock the door, you don’t have to worry or make a trip back home. You also don’t need to worry about leaving spare keys with neighbors or under a plant pot.
One of the most exciting aspects of smarthome technology is what you can do in the kitchen. Even good cooks sometimes get distracted or forget to set a timer. Some cooktops and ovens now even have cameras to stop you from burning your food, especially if you have a pie in the oven for the holidays! You can set your cooking components to cook meals to perfection, with less hovering. This means, when you’re entertaining, you can spend time with your guests, rather than all of your time in the kitchen. If something looks like it’s simmering too hard, just use an app on your phone to turn it down and keep chatting!
Finally, there’s the iDivices Pro that lets you control a range of items with an app or even just your voice. This high-end, easily adaptable product lets you control thermostats, lights, and more, making your home more comfortable, secure, as well as ultimately saving you money on energy costs, since you can control them more easily, even away from home.
Glenn Layton Homes, a custom home builder in St Augustine FL, has been including smarthome technology as a standard part of their package for years now and we continue to stay up to date on the latest technology to find the ones that are solid, secure, and likely to stick around for a long time so you don’t have to worry about your home technology falling out of date.
