IoT & Smart Homes – The Future of Home Building?
Posted: March, 18, 2019 | Categories: Interior Design | Home Building
We first opened our doors to Tralon Homes in 2009 and since then we have been creating high-quality and energy efficient homes in both Colorado Springs and Northern Colorado. Staying on the forefront of our industry has allowed us to be one of the fastest-growing companies in the country, and it is exciting to see what the future of home building will look like. With advancements in technology and The Internet of Things (IoT), not only are industries like security, fitness, and business being impacted but home building and houses are as well.
In basic terms the Internet of Things (IoT) allows different devices to connect via the internet, creating technology like smart watches, mobile or wireless security systems, and now Smart Homes. Everyone has heard of Alexa, and now in homes that use smart plugs you can control Christmas lights, lamps, and virtually anything else you can plug in with just the sound of your voice. Even when you aren’t at home, through just the touch of a button on your phone, home automation systems and the IoT allows you to control the temperature, lighting, the music and television, even your coffee-maker.
The future implications of Smart Homes and the IoT to the future of home building offers benefits to the environment as we are able to better monitor and reward utility usage, but also to efficiencies and quality of life. We may reach a point in new custom homes where the norm becomes laundry machines that can do your wash for you, lights and fans that can switch on and off by detecting human presence, as well as more advanced wireless home surveillance systems that provide additional security and peace of mind.
As younger generations continue to advance the landscape of technology as well as buy and build homes, the impact of smartphones and smart technology on the housing market will continue to increase. Home builders are wise to stay on the front lines of technologies, offering advancements as they are able and that may soon be expected as normal inclusions. It’s an exciting time to see where innovations take us and how they are going to continue to impact the home building industry.
At Tralon Homes in Colorado, we set ourselves apart with over the top standard features and common sense inclusions. We also know that you don’t always have time to wait for the new home of your dreams. That’s why we offer a wide selection of new Tralon Homes available now (or very soon) in each of our communities. We would love to talk to you about how we can help you find your dream home! Contact our team today.
