Hottest Home Tech Trends in 2019

Don’t you sometimes wish you had a magic wand to turn off the porch light from bed? Or a crystal ball so you could see who’s knocking at the front door? Or even magically lowering your monthly energy bill without changing your lifestyle? As new homes become more and more technologically advanced, all of that has become reality. And it’s just the beginning.

Trendmaker Homes is at the forefront of innovative home designs and technology. From home automation to health-conscious building materials, here are some of the top trends in 2019 to keep your eye out for, all of which can be found in Trendmaker homes:

  1. Home Automation
    WiFi thermostats, video doorbells and home assistants, oh my! Homes by Trendmaker Homes are packed with smart home features, built right in. Turn down the temperature after going for a jog in the Texas heat. Or you can check and see if that’s the delivery man knocking – all from your smartphone or tablet.
  2. Amazon Alexa
    Not only do you have all of these cool features available via your smartphone, but new Trendmaker homes also come with Amazon and Echo® devices so everything works together seamlessly. You can even set up custom commands, so when you greet Alexa after returning from work, she’ll dim the lights, adjust the temperature and play your favorite music, so all you have to do is sit back and relax.
  3. Connectivity
    WiFi supports many of these smart home features, but there’s no need to worry about dead zones because homes by Trendmaker Homes are pre-wired for a central wireless access point. So, no matter whether you’re asking Alexa for a recipe in the kitchen or streaming your favorite show in the media room, your signal stays strong.
  4. Environmentally Friendly Features
    As technology advances, so does efficiency. Every home by Trendmaker Homes includes features like a radiant roof barrier, LED bulbs and water-saving appliances that work together to lessen the impact on the environment, without sacrificing conveniences. You can crank up the AC in the summer and load up the dishwasher after dinner, all while still saving electricity, water and money.
  5. Healthy Designs
    You spend almost all your time at home. So, shouldn’t it be designed for your health? In Trendmaker homes, you’ll find carefully chosen features like water filtration systems, as well as paint and flooring options that contribute to higher air quality, all of which can make a huge difference in overall health – especially for people with allergies.
