Ah, spring… the season of fresh starts, growth, and beauty. With all the flowers blooming and mostly pleasant weather, it’s also a great time to build a new home. Whether you’re a new homeowner or just moving, building your new house can be exciting. You get to pick how it would look, how big it’s going to be, and how you want to use each room. 

But aesthetics aren’t the only things you should be thinking about. 

Advanced Tech has worked with hundreds of residential clients throughout our more than 20 years of service. We know that a good home is more than just pretty— it’s also safe, comfortable, and these days, smart. 

Here are other factors you should consider when building your new home: 


Security cameras & alarms: First of all, a good security system has reliable surveillance cameras & alarms. Advanced Tech works with Alarm.com to provide our clients with security systems that can be accessed even while you’re away, in bed, or busy doing household things. 

With the Alarm.com app, you can monitor your home or certain rooms, arm & disarm your security systems for certain people, add people who can control your security systems (such as family members), and more.

Locks: It’s not enough to monitor your home. You need more security measures to keep unwanted infiltrators at bay. Simply locking your door knob won’t do it either. Alarm.com’s security system has an integrated lock system that allows you to control your lock while you monitor your porch or backyard from your devices. 

Doorbells: Doorbells can also help you stay safe & secure. The touchless video doorbell, for instance, can be another strong addition to your system. Learn more about it and how it can benefit your home by reading our previous blog post.


Comfort is also an important factor when building your new home. And with the seasons changing, weather, and climate change, the temperature inside your home is not always consistent. With Advanced Tech’s home automation solutions, you can set and maintain your home’s temperature throughout the year, even when you’re away or in bed. 


While lighting is also essential for your home’s aesthetic, it can also have more than one benefit. Home automation allows you to control your lights to create a cozy atmosphere, make your room brighter for when you’re working, turn off the lights while you’re in bed, or schedule your lights to turn on to make it look like someone’s home. 


Energy and consumption bills can give any homeowner a headache. But as important as it is to learn how to save & manage our energy use, there are also ways to make your home more energy-efficient. Advanced Tech and Alarm.com can help you find smart solutions to:

  • Manage your energy use
  • Automate your energy saving
  • Control your lights, appliances, and thermostat even when you’re away.
  • Save water
