HomeSmart Technology at Aliento: Building a “Smarter” Home

Posted on 22 Jun, 2017

From the inside out, all homes at Aliento™ are built with the LivingSmart® package of standard features that increase energy-efficiency, save water, save you money month after month, and contribute to your long-term peace of mind. New materials, technologies and features are constantly being incorporated into the LivingSmart® program that includes five specific areas of advancement: HealthSmart®, EnergySmart™, EarthSmart®, WaterSmart® and the newest addition–HomeSmart™. With HomeSmart™, standard and optional “smart” home technology features work together to make your everyday life a little easier and a lot more comfortable. The home of the future is here, and it’s at Aliento!

HomeSmart has three main components: comfort and control; access and security; and WiFi connectivity. Comfort and control provides ‘round the clock energy savings by allowing you to control temperature, lighting and much more via your smart phone or tablet–at home or remotely. Forget to raise the thermostat on your way out the door? Do it on your phone from the office or the trails. Access and security gives peace of mind and ultimate convenience by letting you monitor who’s coming and going, and granting entry to service providers and guests even when you’re away from home. Having a pet sitter check on Fido just got less complicated. And WiFi connectivity means that homes are pre-wired for a central wireless access point that keeps the smart home components working seamlessly, while providing enough bandwidth for streaming things like music, movies and games.

Come experience the wonders of a smart home at our Arista model, where Amazon’s popular Echo voice control system, Alexa, has been incorporated. Want to set the mood for romance in the dining room? Ask Alexa for the “date night” setting, and watch as the lights dim and soft music begins to play. Pardee Homes, the builder behind Arista and Verano, also offers other connected features such as the UniFi® AC Pro wireless access point, high-speed Category 6 cabling, Honeywell WiFi thermostat, Schlage® Connect entry locks, LiftMaster® WiFi garage door openers, Ring Pro WiFi camera and doorbell, Lutron Caseta® light switches in selected locations and the Samsung SmartThings™ hub at Arista.

HomeSmart features at Lucera and Tierno by TRI Pointe Homes include the ELAN® smart home technology system–a single ‘brain’ controlling all smart home components through a single app interface; two integrated light switches; Ring Pro WiFi camera and doorbell; Honeywell WiFi thermostat; SmartCode™ entry lock; and a host of options that allow you to personalize your system the way you want it.
