Redefining the Modern Vacation Home Series Article #4 – Lake Homes
This week’s article in the redefining the modern vacation home series is going to focus on the Lake House style home. If you remember from our initial post, a Lake House style vacation home is defined as follows:
The Lake House is a home that is normally anywhere from 1,100 square feet to as large as 6,500 square feet and is traditionally located on either an inland lake or main coastline for one of the great lakes or oceans. This style of vacation home is normally utilized as an entertainment property to bring family and friends together for events, parties, and weekend getaways! The goal of this type of vacation home is all about fun and everything in the home is typically designed to support these initiatives!
Now, as you can see from the description above, electronics are often incorporated into these lake homes due to the fact that the clients are entertaining family and friends on a regular basis while always trying to make their home a fun and exciting place to be. House music systems are vitally important for these homes as they really set the mood for fun inside and outside the home as these systems allow the client to easily set the house to play the latest rock or dance hits or travel back in time to share their love for classic rock or smooth jazz. Additionally, Home theaters become havens for those rainy days and times when everyone wants to watch the latest movie or enjoy the big game! Game rooms are also a key part of these homes as they offer the client and their visitors the opportunity to play cards, dance to the latest DDR video game or simply play some pool while listening to some tunes!
These style of homes also benefit from a great security system to help protect the home before, during and after their parties. Additionally, many clients enjoy integrating these systems with a smart home management system such as the Home Automation Inc. system or Elan g! system. These systems not only provide a great security system but also integrate with cameras, thermostats, lighting, pools and spas as well as music and irrigation.
These fully integrated home automation systems offer all of the features above and even remote door lock integration to allow you to easily and affordably integrate your lake style home with a smart device such as an iphone, ipad or android device that allows you to control and monitor these vital subsystems no matter where you might be. It’s cool, affordable and most importantly extremely easy to use. Check out the video in this link for more details:
