Condo living has just been made even better today with the help of technology and smart ideas by developers and architects. This is what shaped the conventional way of living which can now have a huge difference from the traditional one. Let us all welcome home automation. Through this innovation, residents are now allowed to control their home appliances, lights, curtains, and even the thermostat can be switched on or off with the press of a button on their smart-phone or tablet.

Now, opening doors and windows can now become like never before. Security measures are also maximized to protect the family living within the premises 24/7. Voice-control can also be used to control, enable and disable appliances. It can also be used for commands which can make daily tasks faster and more efficiently.

In other countries, residents are allowed to individually control their household’s A/C, lights, locks, cameras, home audio, garage door, window shades, and anything with a plug. It is as if making your home a big version of your gadget which you can access through your device.

Meanwhile, wireless home automation has been attempted for decades with minimal success. There are records suggesting that there’s already success with the use of Bluetooth but still, there’s a need for more thorough study and testing to make it more efficient and used commercially.

Anti-theft and saving of space are the primary benefits of automating your home. Due to the continuous supply of inventions and discoveries, mechanisms are being improved to be better on serving its purpose. 

Investing on a smart home seems to be costly this is why many people are not considering it. But, in reality, it is necessary as a preparation for the future. It doesn’t have to be instantly. In fact, you can do it one development at a time especially if you don’t have enough funds. You can outsource first and identify those that are more necessary then, you can add the other features later on.

In case of minor or disabled members of the household or even pets, automation can also be beneficial in terms of caring and assistance. There are features that help monitor and assist a person or an animal in terms of feeding, walking around for exercise, and reminder about taking medication or even taking a bath. Most importantly, you can find ways to install a system in your condo that will be helpful in terms of emergency situation that can save you or your love ones.

Having a smart home is the new trend today and on the following years. Just like our mobile phones and other gadgets, more improvements are about to come and more developments may be discovered. It is up to us to determine what among these suits us and what we should integrate based on our needs and our lifestyle because not everything that surfaces and becomes available should be used for some can be irrelevant and unnecessary. Whatever it may be, we must ensure that we also make smart decisions in modifying our condo properties.
