Building a Custom Home with Smart Technology: What You Need to Know

Building a custom home is an exciting process, but it can also be daunting. There are so many choices to make and so many decisions to make along the way. If you’re thinking about building a new custom home, but haven’t considered incorporating smart technology into it, let’s talk! Smart home technology has been around for a while now and is being used by builders across America. Here are some questions we’ll answer:

Builders are integrating smart technology and A/V systems into their custom homes.

As smart technology and home automation become increasingly popular, builders are integrating smart home systems into their custom homes.

Smart home technology can be used to control lighting, heating and cooling systems, TVs and other electronics in the home. It can also be used for security purposes: cameras can be placed throughout your property that allow you to watch over your family from anywhere in the world via an app on your phone or computer.

You can control your lights, thermostat, blinds and more with your mobile device.

In addition to the control you have over your home with a smart device, you can also use voice commands. This means that if you’re in another room and want to turn off the lights or adjust the thermostat, all it takes is one simple command for Alexa or Google Home to do it for you. If those aren’t options for whatever reason (maybe because they don’t work well where they are), then there are other ways of controlling smart home devices as well–like through a smart watch!

Smart home technology can be added to existing homes.

If you’re building a new home, smart technology can be added to the plans from the beginning. However, if you already have an existing home and want to add smart technology features, there are several things to consider.

First of all: if you have an older home (20+ years), there might not be enough space for all of the wiring needed for everything that would make sense in a new house with plenty of outlets and wiring already installed–and it could cost thousands of dollars just for those upgrades alone! Secondly: even if there were enough room in your walls or attic above ceilings where additional wires could go without disrupting old ones too much (which would still require some rewiring), this may not necessarily mean they would work with all brands/types/models out there today since companies change their standards often enough over time anyway!

The best way to find a builder who uses smart technology is to ask around.

The best way to find a builder who uses smart technology is to ask around. Talk with friends, family and colleagues about their experiences with home builders and ask if they are using smart technology in their homes.

If you don’t know anyone personally that has built their own custom home, check with your local building department or city hall for information on how to find local contractors who build custom homes in your area. You can also call the builder directly and ask them if they use smart technology in their homes; many builders will be happy to tell you about it!

Smart home technology can be added to any custom home.

Smart home technology is not just for new construction, but can be incorporated into an existing home, too. And it’s even possible to add smart features when building a new custom home or remodeling an existing one.
