When considering a whole home remodel or a kitchen or bath remodel, take a look at real technological marvels in the smart home trend. Home technology has advanced to the point where we can now control our TVs, lights, plugs, door locks and thermostats from our smartphone. That is just the tip of the iceberg in the home automation wave. The dream of the truly smart home has edged into reality. With the introduction of robotics and home ecosystems, these newest technologies simplify tasks and literally transform the way we live.

Home Robotics

In the context of a home, using voice commands is a faster way of obtaining data and placing orders than maneuvering through an app or website on your phone. We’ll see more and more homes with an artificial intelligence voice system.

Robotics haven’t just made a major leap for the home interior, but also the home exterior. The introduction of automatic robotic lawn mowers (Robomow) hit the US market in 2017. These innovative and user-friendly robotic lawn mowers are designed to join your home team and relieve you of the burden of mowing your lawn.

Smart Appliances

The Hub refrigerators are everything but the kitchen sink. They have a large touchscreen that lets you view family members’ schedules, leave notes for each other, order groceries, play music, and even watch TV. There are three cameras on the inside, which take a picture and email it to you every time you close the door. No more guessing if you need something while you’re at the grocery store.

Intelligent Plumbing Fixtures

While the wave technology has been around – no need to touch any part of the faucet to turn on or off water – there are a number of highly intelligent plumbing fixtures also available.

  • The new smart toilets aren’t just self-cleaning, but will perform a urinalysis and then inform you whether or not you have diabetes — or are at risk for it. These modern toilets can diagnose a number of other medical assessments such as pregnancy or colon cancer. The NEOREST® AC™ Wall-Hung Toilet is an intelligent toilet with an ultra-modern wall-hung design. The smart toilet features revolutionary technologies such as Actilight® and eWater+® to help reduce the need for frequent cleaning.
  • The wireless speaker shower heads are available in standard, rain head, and water saving models. These shower heads allow you to enjoy your favorite pod cast or music while you shower. A removable and rechargeable built-in speaker links up with your smart device.
  • Digital thermostatic technology provides accurate, precise, and consistent temperature control for your shower. Using the power of technology, this thermostat gives you more options for cleansing and relaxation elevating your showering experience.
