Tech Features in Today’s Modern Homes

We may not be the Jetsons, but smart home technology is popping up everywhere today. The multitude of smart home products on the market offer homebuyers a plethora of options designed to tame household chaos. Some of the features we included in our 90th-anniversary show homes, include:

Keyless Entry
From the front door, you’ll experience a high-tech entry with the Kwikset® Home Connect door locks. Lock your door from your cell phone. Receive a text message letting you know your child is home from school. It’s all possible from the palm of your hand.


Whole House Comfort & Security
Controlling the systems throughout your home is simple with a whole-house system like’s home automation controller. These systems can seamlessly connect your lighting, entertainment, security and even learn your heating/cooling cycles. Many can be paired with a smart home assistant like Amazon’s Alexa.


High Tech Gourmet
Kitchens are always a popular gathering spot and an obvious opportunity to amp up your home tech. From Moen’s MotionSense® faucet, which offers touchless activation to easily turn water on and off with the wave of your hand, to Wi-Fi-enabled appliances by Whirlpool and Jenn Air® gadgets are right at home in the kitchen. You can also crush clutter with innovative modular under-cabinet systems from Legrand that offer lighting, outlets and smart charging ports.

Many of our homes blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living spaces with a multi-pane wall of glass by Western Window Systems in the family rooms. These expansive sliding doors create a bright and open living space. At the same time, Heat & Glo’s linear fireplaces offer modern and sophisticated design.
