Today’s new luxury homes are smarter than ever, with clever gadgets and technology that automates your home and adds convenience.
Of course, it’s best to integrate smart home technology as you’re building a luxury home, to ensure seamless integration. So if you’re in the design phase of building a new home, consider these, the best smart home gadgets of 2016!
Smart thermostats, like the EcoBee3, feature a convenient touch screen and full smartphone integration.
As part of this system, temperature sensors are placed in each room and the system will turn on the heat or cooling as necessary to achieve the desired temperature in that particular room or zone.
There’s even a motion activation feature, so your thermostat will know to turn on the heating or cooling when you’re in the room.
Smart Garage Door Openers
Smart garage door openers, such as the Chamberlain MyQ Garage is a very clever device that features full smartphone integration.
There’s no need to mess with remote controls; simply use your smartphone to open or close the garage door. Also, this system touts a geofencing feature, which detects when a resident is approaching the home. The garage will open in anticipation of your arrival and then, once you’ve parked inside, it will close on its own without any input from the user.
What’s more, this system can be used with virtually any garage door opener made after 1993!
Smart Door Locks
Smart door locks are a must-have for any luxury home. Kwikset’s Kevo lock features a deadbolt that can be locked or unlocked with a finger swipe or an “old fashioned” key.
The Kevo app gives you the ability to assign virtual keys, which can be permanent or temporary. You can also monitor who enters and exits the home and when.
Smart Home Security Systems
Smart home security systems like the NuBryte system allows you to monitor and secure your home with a few finger taps.
It can also control your home’s lights and its smartphone integration allows you to send messages to the console. So if you need to remind your kids to do their chores when they return home, the NuBryte system makes it happen with ease!

Water leaks can cause extensive damage to your home and many are unrealized until the damage is quite severe. But that’s exactly where a smart water monitor can help.
