Renovation work offers the perfect opportunity to rethink your own four walls. Finally, you can change those details that have been bugging you for years, but you’ve had to deal with up until now. This will make your home look more attractive and more modern, but you can even go one step further and create a «smart» home. We’ll show you how in this post.
Why do you even need a Smart Home? A Smart Home makes everyday life easier and carries out certain processes for you. For example, you can automatically raise the blinds at a specific time in the morning, switch on the lights, and activate a power outlet. Technology therefore makes life more comfortable, not more complex.
Before you start choosing all kinds of Smart Home gadgets that take your fancy, take a step back and think about how to integrate your Smart Home upgrade into the plans for your overall remodelling.
Finally, it’s time to get started and let yourself be inspired by the many different options a Smart Home offers. Our blog and a quick Google search can give you guidance if you’re not sure yet which Smart Home devices best suit your needs. During the planning process you’ve already thought about the Smart Home elements that you want to integrate first. This will make your selection easier and help you focus on the essentials when you are faced with a wide range of options. This is only the beginning – you can expand your Smart Home at any time after you’ve gained a little experience.
If you’ve chosen Smart Home devices that you cannot install yourself, arrange appointments with experts or get advice from friends or acquaintances. If you’re in the middle of general home renovations, you may already have the experts you need (e.g., an electrician) on site who can help you with your plans.
However, many Smart Home devices can be set up without in-depth technical knowledge. For example, you can install our Nuki Smart Lock in just three minutes – without anyone’s help and without drills or screws. Have a look at your choice of devices first. Installing them might be much easier than you thought.
Your remodelling might have its ups and downs, but as soon as you have completed your project, take the time to enjoy your new home before throwing yourself into the next project. You have laid the foundations for your Smart Home, and now many little everyday tasks are happening automatically and virtually unnoticed. Dedicate your newly-gained free time to your favourite hobbies and then arrive at home feeling relaxed. Welcome home!
We understand that door locks can sometimes be confusing, and not everybody is an expert.
