Trend in 2024 – Smart Homes Get Smarter
SarahA - February 14, 2024

As technology continues to advance, smart homes and intelligent architecture have become integral to the custom architectural landscape in Colorado. From automated lighting systems to integrated smart home controls, architects are leveraging cutting-edge technologies to enhance the functionality and efficiency of residential and commercial spaces. The integration of artificial intelligence and IoT (Internet of Things) devices is creating homes that adapt to the needs and preferences of their inhabitants, offering a seamless blend of comfort and convenience.

Voice-Operated Systems: In 2024, Colorado architects are embracing sophisticated voice-operated systems. These systems allow homeowners to control various aspects of their living spaces with simple voice commands. Imagine adjusting the thermostat, dimming the lights, or even brewing your morning coffee—all through verbal instructions.

Enhanced Home Security: Security remains a top priority, and smart homes are stepping up their game. Facial recognition and motion-sensing capabilities are becoming commonplace. These systems can differentiate between residents, visitors, and potential intruders, offering a new level of security while respecting privacy. Nest door sensors and Google door sensors provide real-time alerts and monitoring capabilities.

Seamless Connectivity (IoT): The Internet of Things (IoT) is expanding rapidly, allowing seamless integration and connectivity between devices. Picture your refrigerator reminding you to buy milk or your oven preheating while you’re still on your way home

In Colorado, architects are weaving technology into the very fabric of our homes, creating spaces that adapt, protect, and enhance our lives. Whether it’s controlling the ambiance with a voice command or optimizing energy usage, smart homes are revolutionizing the way we live and interact with our living spaces.
