SMART WATER USE

According to the Insurance Information Institute, the second-leading cause
of damage in a home is water, with an average cost of almost $11,000. Any
device with pipes, hoses and fittings - or even the water piping system behind
the walls - can leak. How do you know if there is a leak? There are many smart
water sensors readily available. Simply specify one inside a vanity or cabinet -
or under a washing machine, dishwasher, toilet or water heater - and they will
sound an alert and send a notice to the client's phone or alert their caregiver
if excess moisture is evident. Smart water supply valves can also be installed
directly onto devices or even onto the home's main water valve to remotely
turn off water and prevent damage from leaks.

SMART MIRRORS, DRAWERS AND SPEAKERS

It is becoming more common in the bathroom for a computer screen to be mounted behind a clear area of the mirror or as an integral part of it.This bathroom-based
access to a computer allows for watching television,reading and answering emails,
viewing websites and checking your calendar.A client can even make video calls all
via a touch screen or voice control.But wait,even the mirrors are getting smarter!
There are some mirror screens that tie in with a bathroom scale to show a person's
weight, sense their well-being and track fitness, sleep habits and overall health.
Most people store their medications and medical supplies in the bathroom.
When children are in the home, they are always exploring every nook and
cranny. Child-resistant medicine bottles and packaging are only a delay tactic
- eventually a child will figure out how to open everything. A more secure
and smart solution is a locking drawer that opens using fingerprint recognition.These are also great for storing other items such as wallets and firearms.

From just playing music or the news to controlling the entire environment,
smart speakers are now essential in every bathroom.They are invaluable if a person has an emergency and needs to call a family member, a friend or even 911.
These smart devices are programmed with the home address.You can aesthetically conceal the smart speaker behind a grill that looks like a loudspeaker cover
that then connects to an amplifier and proper ceiling- or wall-mounted speakers.
These are just a few of the many smart ideas that smart people are inventing,
smart designers are specifying and smart homeowners are embracing. Your
task now is to explore these ideas and discover other smart solutions. Partner
with a qualified expert to help you understand the value and installation of
these devices and systems. Make every home safe, comfortable and accessible

through the world of smart.
