What is my budget?
This is a very important question. It plays a huge part in determining what type, how complex and how advanced your new technology will be. A plus side to doing this in the building process is, sometimes, you are able to add this amount into your home loan.
What type of technology do I want?
The options for the types of new technology you can include in your home can seem daunting. The best thing to do is to think about how you use your home, how secure you want your home to be and how much control you want. This plays a big part in determining the right system for you. If you want to focus on security and have just a few automation features, you can have a basic Honeywell security system installed. The Lynx Touch is perfect for this and for adding in those little extra features you’d like. You can control your HVAC, door locks, lights, garage doors and cameras using this system right from your smartphone.
If you want a more complex system that has set schedules and a wide array of functionalities then a Control4 system is for you. You can control almost any appliance using your Control4 system. You can have all the features of the Lynx Touch plus control TV’s, home theaters, whole house music, intercom, and so much more!
Another great addition to any new home being built is Central Vacuum. This is one unit hidden away in a basement or garage with outlets placed strategically throughout your home. When you have a mess that needs cleaned you simply plug the hose into the outlet and vacuum away. It keeps all the dust and dirt in the hidden away canister which helps to reduce allergies. There are no bags to replace, no lugging heavy vacuums up stairs and there are several attachments to choose from for optimum cleaning in any situation.
