Home Automation as a part of luxury housing is a trend that is setting in to stand out. In an uber luxury category where there is scope for budgets conveniently accommodating it as an add on, it is a bold representation of changing times. People have now become very specific about the various features they want in their homes. They demand the better and the best in everything. They aspire for a flamboyant lifestyle where every element is carefully chosen and the finishing and materials are of the highest quality.
Technological Enablement Technology and IT innovation have gone a long way to make the living experience in high-end luxury homes extraordinary and convenient. From solar generators to remote controlled window shutters, everything is directed towards meeting the demands of homebuyers looking for an ultra-modern lifestyle. The notion of automated homes has advanced from the touch of a button to open a door to secure one’s house and remotely observe and control the space from any part of the world.
The demand for fully and completely integrated, comprehensive home automation solutions has picked up substantially in the past few years. Home automation primarily gives you the access to control devices or appliances in your home from anywhere in the world. The elements that can be controlled fall into divergent categories namely light control, temperature control, entertainment and safety features. Lights can be automated to turn off in an unoccupied room. Turning on the Coffee maker or the security alarm can be possible with the touch of a button. The AC’s can be switched on before stepping into your house or residents can receive email alerts in case a window is left open or the apartment has not been locked appropriately. In the rooms, window shades can be programmed to adjust for maximum energy efficiency based on the time of day or outside temperature, which helps save some energy.
As an add-on, automated homes therefore tend to be much more energy efficient than Conventional homes. With the growing demands developers are hopeful that smart-home services will not remain confined to only luxury residences and will trickle down into mid-segment and budget homes.
