Smart lighting is one of the most popular smart home technologies people want. And today’s options are better than ever. Modern LED lighting is 80% more efficient than incandescent lighting and lasts up to ten times longer. Moreover, today’s systems like Lutron’s Ketra are capable of dynamic, tunable lighting that can change white color temperature and color.
Imagine being able to dim your living area to the level of warm candlelight for relaxing or using color lighting to make your interiors pop for a party. Tunable lighting can also be used to dial in color to make your carefully curated art collection look like museum pieces. You can control it all with elegant, programmable, multi-functional keypads, touchscreens, and even your voice. The earlier you plan this luxury lighting with your architect, builder, and smart home company, the easier it is to fully integrate it into your new home.
Motorized Shades and Window Treatments
Motorized window treatments are a must in luxury Florida homes. They control the sunlight in your home for optimal comfort and efficiency. While wireless solutions can be installed in many homes, high-end homes with many large windows benefit from wired solutions that won't require battery replacement and won't be limited by window size or treatment style. With early planning, you can enjoy the luxury of window treatments that open and close by your choice of control or the simplicity of schedules.
Want unlimited entertainment in your new home, with every source available in every room and even outdoors? A whole-house AV system delivers a consistent experience in every room, with high-definition sound and 4K or 8K video everywhere. Listen to any music in all or some parts of your home, and call up TV, streaming sources, and movie video libraries on any screen in the house. This type of system requires planning from the start for wiring, equipment location, and networking considerations.
You'll want your new residence to be as safe as possible. With modern security and surveillance, you can keep an eye on your property and control it from afar. Wire your new home inside and out for security cameras that monitor your Palm Beach property 24/7. You can also install smart locks to provide access to your service personnel and avoid keys that can be easily duplicated. With smart security technology, you can remain in full control. A comprehensive security plan is easier to implement in the design phase of your new home or remodel.
