New Year, New Technology: 3 Smart Home Upgrades for 2018
Enhance Your Tampa, FL Residence With These Tech Advancements
The new year is just around the corner, and that means you have an opportunity to start fresh in 2018.
You can make resolutions to improve your health, but why not also commit to adding convenience in your day-to-day life?
Even if you already have a smart home automation system in your Tampa, Florida residence, there always are upgrades available that can provide new benefits for your lifestyle and peace of mind.
Below, we’ll share three home automation trends you should be paying attention to in the new year – and explain how each can enhance your smart home.
Perhaps the biggest smart home automation trend we expect will continue into 2018 is the growth of voice control technology.
Amazon Alexa already has become a leader in the realm of voice control, and you can add it to your existing smart home.
We can help you merge an Alexa-enabled device with your existing home automation system so that you will gain control capabilities simply from speaking a command.
You can tell Alexa to “Turn on the lights in the kitchen,” or “Close the garage door,” and it automatically will through its cooperation with your control system.
Some other cool features of voice-control systems: You can call or text message people, prepare a grocery delivery or even order your favorite pizza.
Surveillance and Security System
If you want true peace of mind for whenever you’re away from home, a surveillance system certainly helps.
But the latest technologies in home surveillance offer even more security for your property.
Some of the best security cameras available offer 4K picture-quality and facial recognition so that when unusual movement is detected (yes, your smart surveillance system can separate friends and family from strangers), you can get a push alert sent to your smartphone or tablet and instantly view your security camera’s recorded video or live stream in ultra HD resolution.
Of course, you also can upgrade your security system so you can lock doors and activate your alarms remotely.
Through upgrading your security system, your property always will be prepared in the event an intruder approaches – even if you’re thousands of miles away from home.
Home Network Installation
Do you ever get poor Wi-Fi reception in specific areas of your property? Do you notice that streams sometimes lag or even pause to buffer?
These issues could be the effects of an underperforming home network.
With an entire network installation, you not only can upgrade your router to support high amounts of internet traffic through multiple channels – you even can have wireless access points to extend your Wi-Fi signal to every part of your property (even the outdoors).
Another benefit of upgrading your network infrastructure: Each smart home automation device that uses your Wi-Fi will receive a performance boost.
Even browsing the internet or watching your favorite live stream will become a fast, uninterrupted and high-quality experience.
