Whether it’s new construction or a retrofit, the idea of a Northern Michigan smart home has become much more popular of late. With technology from Alexa, to Google Home, to our favorites Control4 and Elan, there are many choices.
Let’s start with what you’re looking for: Is it a fully-automated home or random features? Lighting and shades? House sound system?
While options like Alexa are great for DIYers, integrating many features on a large scale becomes an issue. That’s where we come in. Control4, for instance, has products ranging from integrated video doorbells, to thermostats, to amplifiers. On one touch panel or even handheld remote, you could control the speakers in the living room where the guests are while lowering the shades in the front entrance for privacy.
If you’re considering a Northern Michigan smart home for a new construction project, make sure the contractors you select from Rhiz are knowledgeable on the subject. If you like, reach out to us first for builder recommendations to insure your project runs smoothly with the right builders from the start.
