Day by day technology is becoming more integrated with every part of our lives. From social media and smart phones to GPS and WIFI, computer technology is becoming intertwined with nearly every part of our existence. We use this technology to get around, discover new culture and communicate with our friends and family. Most of us are used to technology as independent units: a computer on a desk, a phone in our hands. More and more, however, technology is being incorporated into things we use every day like refrigerators and ovens.
One of the most excited trends in San Diego home remodeling is the ability to make the home integrate seamlessly with mobile technology. People can now use their smart phones or mobile computers to control all different types of conditions and activities in their home. They can remotely heat their spa so it’s ready when they get home from work. They can watch home security cameras from work or on mobile devices. They can also remotely record their favorite television shows and movies and have them ready whenever they want to watch them. All of this type of exciting technology can be seamlessly integrated during whole house, outdoor or kitchen remodeling.
Technology isn’t just great for convenience. It’s also a powerful way to increase efficiency and save a lot of money on energy costs. One of the most exciting developments is the ability to create self-sustainable power through solar technology. This concept has extra potential for San Diego homes because sunny days make up a vast majority of the year. Solar power may change the way we think about powering our homes in the future as we become less dependent of fossil fuels and create a much better environment for our children and grandchildren.
