At the moment of building or renovating your new home in Edmonton, you would probably want to consider one of the top assets of modern luxury custom homes: Automation. The current boom of the Internet of Things (IoT) is impacting modern custom homes as never before, and each day more homeowners decide to include it somehow in their properties.

But What Does Exactly Mean the IoT?

The IoT is not actually a new concept as the research in this area has been going on for decades. But it is now that its residential applications are the trendiest. Basically, the IoT refers to a wireless system connected to electronic devices through the internet. The main advantage of the IoT in modern luxury custom homes is that you can control and monitor several devices remotely thanks to an internet connection. At Edmonton Custom Home Builders, we have a vast experience working with the IoT in our building and renovation projects. That is why we have prepared a list of examples on how you could use the IoT to impact your dream home dramatically.

You can actually control your lighting, and heating and cooling systems, which will directly impact your electricity bill. Experienced Edmonton home builders would also suggest you make the most of the IoT by scheduling your appliances and all technological devices.
