The smart home has arrived — the internet is gradually making its way into everything from appliances to thermostats, and you’ll soon be able to control most things in your house from your phone. But letting WiFi connected things into your house is a big step — they can watch you at all times and know a great deal about your most intimate life.

Contemporary Kitchen: TIP- Wire your drawers. Do you need your technology while you cook, perhaps to look up recipes or cooking hints, make cooking notes, play music or make diary entries?

Docking Station - A whole-home automation system brings the home’s technology — door locks, lighting, security cameras, shade control, pool control and the entertainment system — together. A magnetic mount houses two smart tablets that can be removed and used throughout the home. Two accompanying tabletop mounts, located in the master bedroom and loft areas, feature the same functionality.
