Think About Smart Home Products for Summer

From new appliances to custom cabinets, Long Island homeowners often purchase new items for the home and do long-needed renovations once summer rolls around and life slows down. If you’re itching to make some home improvements this summer, smart home products are probably the smartest home upgrades you could make. With one stroll through our kitchen and bath showroom, Long Island homeowners and Greater New York City residents can easily imagine their new kitchen or home with some of the latest smart products on offer. There are many new products on the horizon, as well. Keep reading to learn more about some of the latest ways to make your home “smart.”

21st Century Water Filtration Systems

Water filters have been available for home usage for quite some time, but in recent years they’ve really evolved. And some of the new products hitting the market are even able to generate clean, fresh, drinkable water using nothing but the humidity in the air. 

Fridges and Trash Cans That Write Your Shopping List

New fridge-cam technology is making it possible to receive alerts on your phone as soon as you run out of your favorite refrigerated items. New trash can scanners can also read bar codes on packaging before you throw it away, so you will instantly have a list of everything you need to replace. There is even a voice-activated feature to add items to the list that don’t have bar codes.

Home Robots That Do More Than Sweep Floors

Some of the new home robots coming out can not only clean carpets or hardwood floors, but also humidify and purify the air while enhancing your home’s security with motion sensors. When speaking with one of the experts at our kitchen and bath showroom, Manhasset, Great Neck, Long Island and NYC home and apartment owners may also learn that it’s possible to sync a smart home assistant with various smart appliances to control everything in one place.

Next-Level Home Security Systems

Home security is an issue of primary concern for many of the customers that walk into our kitchen and bath showroom. Great Neck, Manhasset, Long Island and NYC homeowners and apartment owners can feel safer than ever in their homes, though, with some of the next-level security systems that are available now or hitting stores soon. Some of the best home security products also link all the smart products in a customer’s home, creating a truly seamless experience while providing peace of mind.  

Smart Vents for Indoor Air Pollution

While you may not worry much about indoor air pollution, it can be just as unhealthy – or sometimes worse than – the pollution that you may encounter outside. New “smart” ventilation systems can do things that would have once been thought unimaginable for the home, such as measuring air flow and checking air quality with cutting-edge sensors.
