Did you know that the Fourth of July is the 5th most celebrated holiday? With bbq, sweet treats, fun games, and a good ol’ fireworks show to end the day, who wouldn’t want to celebrate the Fourth of July? It’s sure to bring everyone together: aunts, uncles, grandparents, parents, and children alike! Everyone is bound to have endless fun.
But have you ever thought of how a smart home can help you celebrate this holiday and all other holidays all year through?
Here at Smart Home Construction, our Harlingen smart home builders are guaranteed to build you a home that is party ready and sure to bring comfort and ease for all your guests needs. With this in mind, let’s go over a few “must haves” you need in your smart home to throw a successful gathering.
1. Home Security
The preparation and the beginning of any party can be hectic. With guests arriving and you being busy setting up tables and food, it can be overwhelming especially when you have kids. There is no need to worry any longer because smart home technology makes your life easier, especially if your home security devices are set up.
There are various technological devices you can use to ensure safety. One smart home device that will benefit you are smart doorbells. When opening the door constantly for guests, it can be frustrating to go back and forth between welcoming in guests and rushing back to do other tasks.
Having a smart doorbell will aid you because of its built-in cameras and motion sensors that let you access real-time video of all your guests as they approach your home. You will be able to look at all your guests as they arrive and lock your door in between arriving guests at the touch of your device.
This technology enables you to see the real-time video on your phone through an app or through any other technological device. Additionally, when you have cameras in and outside your home, you will be able to keep an eye on the kids and people as they move from space to space throughout the party.
2. Smart Lighting and Speakers
No party is complete without the perfect lighting and speakers. One feature that will make this possible is your voice assistant.
You can simply “say the word” and your speakers will do all the work for you when trying to find the perfect playlist to set the vibes for the party. One of the beauties about owning smart homes is the ability to play music across multiple speakers, so when guests flow through space to space, the music will flow with them and set the mood of the party. The best part is that you control the type of music and the volume all from your smart device as well.
And for those of us that can’t participate in the firework festivities, a good smart light system can not only set the tone of your party with hues of red, white, and blue, you can sync up your smart bulbs with your playlist for a light show that will go down in the books for a long time.
As with any gathering, parties are sure to have lots of people in one space. With more bodies in one place, it can get a little warmer due to an increase of body heat. With so many people in your house, adjusting the temperature may not be a possibility without bobbing, weaving, and dodging other people. This can cause your home to lose cool air, all the while raising your energy bill with how hard your AC has to work to keep you and the guests comfortable.
Fortunately, smart homes can alleviate this issue with smart thermostats. You can make adjustments and monitor the temperature through your smart home or schedule times for heating or air conditioning to turn on or off with your smart device. Problem solved!
