Last month I saw a movie called Parental Guidance with Billy Crystal and Bette Midler. In the movie the family has a “Smart-House” which is a home that is practically run by computers. I never thought this actually existed until I found a fascinating article in the Builder Business Newsletter. The article discusses how technology in the home has reached a whole new level. Each year they create a home which has cutting edge design and home updates. The annual New American Home spotlights green building technologies and builder best practices. To help accomplish their goal, the design team turned to a company called Crestron. Creston creates home automation systems which make it possible to adjust home systems with the touch of your Smart Phone. Yes, you can heat the house, unlock the doors, turn the Jacuzzi on all from your phone! It is an amazing innovative company. Check out www.crestron.com to see all of the amazing features.
Here at Anna Ione Interiors we have entered the new age with new technology ourselves. We are able to create digital tours of your home so that you can see exactly what the design will look. With this software we can illustrate and render a full view of your home with paint, countertops, flooring, and all the furnishings!
