Trends in Technology and the Home
A connected television is essential to any home theater system. By being connected to the web, they can stream shows from online services such as Netflix or Hulu Plus. They are also connected to mobile devices like phones or tablets. Ever feel like playing ‘Angry Birds’ on a big screen? Now you can. With the right system, homeowners can also connect playlists from Pandora, Spotify or from their iTunes account to really enhance the home theater experience.
In order to really be gadget centric, multiple portable docs should be available around the house. These can sync of iPods and tablets so that in some circumstances, such as cooking in the kitchen, programs can run hands free.

There is more to technology than just fun and games, however. Going green is a huge trend in the world today, and more and more appliances and products are energy efficient. A prime example of this is the Energy Star label that is on most modern electronics today. These also use smart technology, and can be programmed to turn on and off based on the schedule of the owner.
A must have gadget for techy homeowners is a home management system. These can virtually connect nearly every device in the house from phones and televisions to lights and appliances. They can also monitor energy output, so that no energy is being wasted (the greener the better!). Being plugged in throughout the home is very useful and can change the way homeowners live.

These are just a few hot trends regarding technology and the home.  There are sure to be new upcoming devices in the near future that can alter the way we live. Just think, 10 years ago iPods were rare, and now, it’s unimaginable not to have a mobile player of some kind. The future is not as far away as some people think.
