Remember how silly it seemed 30 or 40 years ago while watching the original Star Trek (reruns for you young’uns)? Did you laugh out loud about things like handheld communicators? Something called a Tricorder that was really a portable computer? A computer that responded to your voice? But, here we are a few short decades later and they are all a reality.
Now is the time to check out home automation in Montgomery, AL and call Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air to take advantage of this technology. We can make your home a smart home, or at the very least, smarter than it is right now. How about motion sensor lights in every room of your house so you never have to worry about shutting the lights off? Maybe a voice-activated command station which can give you voice control over several household devices? And how many USB charging ports do you need, or more importantly, want in your home? Our electricians can fulfill any or all of those wants and needs and much more.
Understand the term smart home is very broad and covers a huge number of gadgets, but when we say home automation systems, we’re referring to something that can be programmed to work automatically. It started with the basics like timers and programmable thermostats. Now the possibilities are nearly endless. Door locks, security cameras, and coffee makers just to name a few. If there is a common denominator, it’s the promise of saving time and money or just making your life a little easier.
The experts say this is all the tip of the iceberg as more and more devices are given their own IP address and become part of the internet of things. Smart home kits and home automation have dominated the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) for the last two years. Market experts predict the smart home market share will be worth tens-of-billions of dollars in the next few years. The big names like Apple, Google, GE, and Microsoft are all heavily involved. While it may seem intimidating, our experts can help you determine what’s realistic for you and your home.
It doesn’t matter if your favorite Star Trek franchise is the original, Next Generation, Voyager, Deep Space Nine, Enterprise, or the brand-new Star Trek Discovery. Before you sit down to watch the next show with your family, call Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air to install wireless home automation in your house, so you can live the experience instead of just watching it
