You Won't Believe What These 6 Smart Homes Can Do

by Cathy Carr

A hand holds out a smart phone in the foreground of an ornate living room.

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery – and if that’s the case, you are going to really want to flatter some of these people.

Whether you are a smart home superstar or are just dipping your toes into the amazing tide that is smart home integration, these homes will show you how things are really done.

So, buckle up and hold on to those socks, because you are about to take a tour through six smart homes that will make you green with envy, and help spur a few creative smart home ideas of your own. Let’s go!


1. Tiny Technology

In the technology world, sometimes the ‘bigger is better’ mentality tends to rule all. TV screens, phone screens, speakers, you get the idea. It always seems to be some secret size matters agenda.

But, that’s not always the case. This tiny home shows off the powerful potential of using smart technology to help squeeze a home into 300 feet. If you are looking to condense your living space and reduce your footprint, custom integration can help you do that, too!

2. Southern Shores

If you have a meager $5 million burning a hole in your pocket, this smart home may be just what you are looking for. Powered by Savant, this home boasts a movie theater, a personal gym, and a floating bed. And that’s just the warm up lap. iPads in every room give you easy control of the house, meaning you’ll never be far away from the smart controls you need. Check it out for yourself!


3. Outdoor Adventures

Custom integration allows customers and home owners to think outside the norm, to think outside the box, and for some, to even think outside the house. All the way outside the house, to the literal outside.

This award-winning home has a Crestron-powered retractable canopy,  and make sure you don’t miss the 130” TV. It gives a whole new meaning to “playing outside,” for sure.

4. Magical Moments

There’s custom integration, and then there’s Disney World levels of custom integration. One of Jason Langone’s homes is just that, taking custom integration to a whole new, magical, level. His house automatically adjusts temperature for his arrival, and also starts sending out cedarwood and cinnamon scents. Depending on the time of day, it will either start pouring espresso or playing music.

Awesome. Totally, automatically, awesome.

5. Motorized Movement

It’s a trope at this point: The fancy mansion with the moving bookcases, hidden corridors, and secret passageways. And to most people, these probably are just a constructed fantasy, a part of the imagination they’ll never be able to access in real life.

But for you – with the power of a custom integrator behind you – the possibilities are endless. Check out this Control 4 powered remote-controlled rack that moves and hides all those pesky wires you don’t want visible in the main room.

When you go custom, the possibilities really are endless. Give us a call today, and we’ll help you make your fairest fantasies a reality!


6. All Aboard the Mine Train

What would you do with a near-unlimited budget? Maybe put in a wine cellar that looks like a mining tunnel? Welcome to one of Oprah Winfrey’s houses.

As cool as that is, that’s not the high-tech integration you come to us for, though. Well, how about a heating system that keeps the driveway clear of snow? A sauna that Wall hacked to make it get hotter and last longer? Now, that’s the power of custom.


No matter how big your dreams – or you budget – are, we are always glad help guide about your plans to integrate technology into your home and make them a reality. Give us a call today and get started on your custom integration journey right away!
