Building out your smart home from start to finish can be more extensive than you may think. Some smart home items are better suited for specific rooms, while others can live happily in any room you place them, like smart lights. If you’re looking to find smart home items for specific rooms in your how and their applications for said rooms, check out the most important smart home item for every room below.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be posting a series of blogs that revolve around smart home automation room by room.
We are going to show you the components of a smart home that we currently install and some new smart home features that can be custom integrated into your smart home system. If it has a wireless remote, we can add it to your smart home features.
Just to give you a teaser, we already have quite a few topics in mind such as, turning your home gym into a smart gym, fully automated kitchens with motorized components with no reach cabinets and drawers, and automated bathrooms that are right out of the future. You will find these features and more, fascinating and a must-have for your new or existing smart home. Keep in mind that if your home isn’t a smart home, we are the professionals that know how to do retrofits better than anyone else.
Maybe there are things that you have ideas of automating in your home? Respond to this blog or visit our website to drop us a line. You can even call to schedule a time to meet with you at your home to tour and discuss new smart possibilities for you. We can answer any question you have, right on the spot. Give us your automation ideas and we will make them happen. It isn’t often that we aren’t able to fulfill a custom request as we can find alternative solutions to almost any situation.
The Living Room
The living room is usually dedicated to kicking your feet back and relaxing. Whether this be in the form of watching movies, playing movies, or video games, many situations in this room require a TV. While it’s easy to find a good smart TV these days, to smarten up your living room without adding another device you wouldn’t normally add to the living room is the Sonos Beam.
A great TV viewing experience demands quality sound, so adding a soundbar to your living room is a logical addition. However, the Sonos Beam offers you built-in Amazon Alexa voice control, eliminating the need for a dedicated speak within this room.
If you tend to spend a lot of time in your kitchen cooking, there’s a good chance you may have your hands occupied constantly. This is what makes a smart assistant with a built-in screen like the Echo Show or the Google Home Hub can really come in handy.
Smart assistants with screens offer up all of the features you’d expect in any smart speaker but can offer visual, contextual responses. (You can ask them to show you pictures of something and they will show them on the display.) One of the best use cases for these devices in the kitchen is using them to following recipes and you can do so in more than one way. Simply ask Google Home for a recipe and it will give you step by step instructions. You can also ask your assistant to play videos via YouTube if you prefer that method as well.
It may seem as though you’d reserve the best smart home items for the bedroom, but I’m afraid I’m going to disappoint you. Assuming you have smart lights in your room, there’s little else that you can add to your room that wouldn’t end up being distracting, but a smart plug would enable you to control the items you do have in your room already.
Think about it. How many things in your bedroom do you turn on or off before you go to bed? Do you have a fan that you look to keep you cool? A noisemaker for some white noise so you can sleep? Oil diffuser? Whatever your routine is before you get into bed, adding some smart plugs like the Wemo Smart Plug Mini to your existing items so you can turn those items on or off while you’re already in bed via the app or smart assistant.
