For many people, the kitchen is a multi-purpose gathering spot - and the place where home technology solutions can make your life significantly easier. For example, a well-designed lighting control system includes task light settings for preparing food, general lighting for family meals around the island, and low level lighting for late night snacking.
A wall-mounted iPad or touch panel creates a central command point for all of your various home systems including HVAC, whole house music, lighting and shade control, and front door and driveway video surveillance cameras.
In-ceiling speakers make it fun to listen to music while cooking or eating, and a wall-mounted flat screen TV lets you watch your favorite sports or TV programs while cooking or just hanging out in the kitchen.
If you have a small office nook for bill paying and looking up information on the Internet, computers, tablets and printers can be easily connected to your whole house wireless network that lets you control all of your home systems from anywhere, using any of your mobile or digital devices.
