More than likely this summer you and your family will take a vacation or two across town – or around the globe – with one of these stops probably being at your house in the Hamptons. If you are thinking about upgrading your second home this year, why not bring the convenient control of smart home automation, to your Hamptons residence? According to a study conducted by the Joint Center for Housing Studies, home automation is “predicted to be the No. 2 trend in residential remodeling over the next five to ten years.”
Imagine popping an iPad off the wall and turning on your favorite playlist as you walk outside to tan by the pool. Cool, huh? Whether your second home is sleek and traditional or possesses an art deco flare, Audio Den has a full suite of technology to bring your Hamptons home up to date. With summer quickly approaching, now is the best time to take a look at the integrated technologies available to enhance your lifestyle.
If you have an automated home in your Long Island or Manhattan residence, then you’re familiar with the ability to access all of your systems at your fingertips. With so much reliance on mobile phones and smart technology, it is hard to imagine leaving the comfort of those luxuries behind while vacationing in the Hamptons. With Audio Den, there is no need. From lighting control, to whole house music systems, everything in your home can be integrated into an easy to use touch screen system.
Increased Security and Asset Protection
Many of our clients already understand the importance of monitoring their primary residence while they are away from home. IP camera systems with fully-integrated network video recorders will give you peace of mind, knowing that you can log into and check on your home from anywhere in the world where you have an internet connection.
Smart door locks integrated with a full automation system are a great way to keep tabs on the comings and goings of family members, guests, and cleaning and maintenance staff. Individual door codes can be generated for each visitor and only active during set hours or slated to expire after a certain time.
Enhanced Energy Management Options
One of the top benefits of living in a smart home is the enhanced level of comfort and control afforded by the technology. As part of a home automation suite, energy management technology can also provide you with the ability to make your home more energy efficient. With 73 percent of consumers demanding energy efficiency in their remodeling projects, energy conscious consumers see the value of including automated climate controls in their homes. Not only does automated climate control save you money and decrease your carbon footprint, it also helps boost the resale value of your property.
According to Charlie Young, president and CEO of ERA Real Estate, “while still a growing trend, smart home enhancements have the potential to increase savings, safety and re-sale value.”
