There are so many things that you can do to your home these days. If you are interested in technology and having the latest and greatest devices, lighting, and smart home tools, you are in luck because these smart home technologies have come a long way. The key is to making sure that you have a good electrician that can manage all of the different electrical services that you are going to need to get your home automation up and running. This can be a confusing process and only a qualified electrician will be able to help with these complicated steps. Below are some of the things your electrician can do to make your home smarter.

1. Smart Thermostat. A smart thermostat is something that can make your home both more comfortable and more energy efficient as well. There are a variety of smart thermostats that can learn to recognize your habits such as when you are home and when you are away.  These can connect to your Wi-Fi and you can control the temperature from your phone even when you are far away. The old thermostat can be removed and the new ones can be wired into the wall in its place. An electrician will be able to wire it for you in just a matter of minutes.

2. Lighting. There are a number of smart lighting options out there these days. An electrician will be able to help you install lights that are not only more energy efficient but that are able to be controlled remotely. You could literally turn on or off all the lights in your home from anywhere. This is great when you are travelling. Rewiring lights can be dangerous and is best left to a professional electrician that is capable and experienced.

3. Automatic Shades and Curtains. Another way to make your home smarter is to have an electrician install shades and curtains that can open automatically. These can either be controlled with a timer or with the simple push of a button. The wiring can be complicated and an electrician will be needed but this can make your home a better place to live.

These are just a few of the ways that your home can become more automated and smarter. A qualified electrician will provide all of these services for you so that you can be sure that it is done correctly and safely. contact a company like G.J. Rossi & Son to get started.

Pool House Parties: Building Your Backyard Escape

When I decided to turn my backyard into a pool and spa space, I wanted to have a pool house built. Adding a pool house would give me somewhere for everyone to shower and change without tracking pool water and dirt into the main house. I worked with a local contractor to construct a pool house with an outdoor kitchen, outdoor showers, and full indoor restroom facilities as well as a game room and changing rooms. I created this site to journal the process so that I could hopefully inspire others to do the same. I hope this site takes some of the mystery out of the construction process for you so you can build the backyard structure you've always wanted.
