When it comes to designing and building a custom home, safety and security tend to be overlooked in favour of more “fun” elements. Though safety and security are not as instantly noticeable as a beautiful kitchen or exotic flooring, they are still important for any living space. As leading providers of large-scale renovations and quality custom homes, Alderidge Construction understands the importance of choosing the right home safety features. That is why our team has provided a list of 4 safety features to include in your custom home.
Safety Features Every Custom Home Should Have
To ensure optimal safety and security for you and your family, consider including the following features in your new living space:
1. Automated Lighting
Motion sensor lights are a popular and practical feature that greatly enhances visibility and safety in any home. In addition to illuminating areas to keep residents safe, motion-activated lights are a great way to deter unwanted visitors. Many automated lighting systems can also be connected to phone apps, allowing for easy control from any area of your home.
2. Smart Cameras
Security cameras are a great way to monitor your home and deter unwanted guests. With a variety of options available, it is easy to find the perfect security camera system for your home. Most modern cameras can be integrated with “smart” systems that allow for control with smartphones and tablets, making it easy to monitor your home and keep it secure.
3. Advanced Alarm Systems
Modern alarm systems should be installed on any custom home regardless of the size, layout, and location. Many advanced alarm systems can detect break-ins, smoke, harmful gasses, and many other potential threats before they become a real hazard. These systems are virtually unnoticeable and make a world of difference for the safety of your family.
4. Smart Locks
While most homeowners are content with a standard deadbolt for their front door, there are better options available for your new living space. Today’s smart locks feature enhanced durability, reliable security, and advanced keyless entry capabilities, making it easy to allow access for your family while keeping intruders out. As is the case with many smart home devices, there are many smart locks available, so it is worth looking at several options to see which is best for your needs.
