Smart Security

A smart security network is a great way to protect your family and your home. Smart locks, smart peepholes, and indoor and outdoor cameras all work together to make sure your family is safe, whether you are home or not.

Smart locks are a great way to track when your kids get home from school or your spouse leaves for work. You can create a different digital keycard for each family member or guest staying in your home. That way, when the person uses the key to enter the home, you receive a notification.

Curious as to whether the kids are doing their homework, or if someone is outside your door? Smart security cameras can record in high definition and can be placed inside or outside your home to be viewed remotely, whenever you please. You can even respond remotely to a ringing doorbell via audio if you want a person to believe you are home.

Convert Dead Space to Storage Space

If you have an area behind your staircase, space under your kitchen cabinets, or want to utilize the space between studs in your bedroom wall as storage space, you have plenty of options. There is almost always a need for more storage space in a home, so thinking outside the box can help you to use this space effectively.

The space beneath staircases is the most underutilized dead space in most homes. If it is a closet, it’s not very effective, so why not open up the space beneath the stairs and build a desk and add shelving to the back side of the steps. You can also build pull out drawers under each step in a staircase.

Look for empty space in the walls between rooms and under cabinets. These wasted spaces make great small storage areas, which are always needed. You can add custom pull out drawers or shelving, in almost any size, to create more storage throughout your home.

Laundry and Trash Chutes

Tired of lugging your laundry or garbage downstairs? Trash and laundry chutes are a great way to keep your laundry and your trash in a central location. A chute built into, or behind, kitchen counter tops will make it very easy to clean up after prep work, while strategic chutes into the baseboards throughout your home will make sweeping a breeze.

Smart Lighting

Smart lighting is the lighting of the future. When you set up a smart lighting system, your lights are completely customizable and can automatically adjust in areas where you perform tasks, to improve energy and function. Smart lighting involves creating a network of lights and sensors that change every facet of a room’s lighting.
