Tech Ideas for a Smarter Custom Home

Let’s take a spin around the landscape of tech options for your Wyoming custom home.


The Command Center: Custom Home Automation

Start your tech journey with a custom home automation system. With automated central controls, you're the sheriff of your own domain. Adjust everything from lighting to security, all with a tap or voice command. Your centralized system can communicate with all your smart appliances and gadgets for a symphony that supports your every need. Your refrigerator could notify your oven about the chicken you just took out, and it might suggest and pre-set an optimal cooking temperature. Or maybe your coffee machine sends an alert when your brew is ready. It's all interconnected, and it's all kinds of cool.


Explore Smart Kitchen Appliances

Everybody’s got to grub, and with smart kitchen appliances, your cooking routines can be easier than ever and often initiated from afar. Imagine a fridge that tells you when you're out of milk or an oven that preheats with a voice command.
