Create a Smart Home During Renovations

With the increasing popularity of smart home technology, it’s no surprise that more and more homeowners are looking to incorporate these features into their homes during renovations. When upgrading your home, integrate smart home technology to enjoy increased convenience, energy efficiency and home security, among other benefits.

Plan Ahead

Before starting any renovations, it’s important to have a clear plan for incorporating smart home technology into your home. Speak to the team at EAV to discuss what features you want, such as smart lighting, smart thermostats, or smart security systems. The backbone of any smart home technology system is the wiring that sits behind the walls. Installing smart wiring systems during the building process is the easiest way to achieve a smart home.

Prioritise Security

With your newly upgraded smart home, you’ll want to ensure a secure home. By installing smart locks, cameras, and motion sensors from EAV, you can monitor your home from anywhere and receive alerts if there’s any suspicious activity. This can give you peace of mind when you’re away from home.

Consider Voice Control

Voice control technology, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, can make it even easier to control your smart home devices. Consider incorporating voice control into your renovation plans to make it easier to turn on lights, adjust the temperature, or lock the doors without even having to touch a button.

Focus on Energy Efficiency

A modern home should be an efficient home. One of the major benefits of smart home technology is reduced energy consumption. Use LED lighting, smart thermostats and more to ensure optimal use of energy and reduced consumption. EAV also now offer solar installation and EV chargers with smart integration. 

The first step of achieving a smart home during a renovation is to arrange a comprehensive meeting with EAV to put together a plan. With careful planning and consideration of your needs, you can create a home that’s tailored to your lifestyle and preferences. So why not start planning your smart home renovation today?
