Home automation accessories that cannot miss in our home in Venice

The solutions to make a home in Venice technological without losing the charm of history

Who said that historicity and technology cannot get along? Indeed, a house in Venice can become the perfect example of this union, provided you know how to choose the right home automation accessories.

Within this definition, in fact, a huge amount of devices is included, from those capable of making the home efficient from an energy point of view to those more playful and created for entertainment. A fundamental prerequisite, however, is the availability of a broadband internet connection and the creation of a wi-fi network within the home, so that different devices can be connected.


It is essential to start from home automation devices designed for energy efficiency, easy to install without having to necessarily intervene with masonry work, such as intelligent electrical outlets . These allow remote switching on and off and can be easily installed on old sockets as long as the type and maximum sustainable load are checked with the electrician first.

They can become very useful to limit waste and, if equipped with energy meters, they will allow us to detect any anomalous consumption of household appliances, immediately identifying a possible malfunction. In short, we will no longer run the risk of returning for a holiday in our beautiful home in Venice and finding the broken refrigerator.

Equally useful and equally simple to install even in a historic home are the smart thermostats that allow you to adjust the temperature in the different rooms of the house directly remotely. A perfect solution especially if we are faced with a second home in Venice that we use intermittently.

In the latter case, we will also greatly appreciate the intelligent lights that allow you to create different lighting scenarios according to our needs and above all to be controlled remotely making the danger of forgetting a light on remotely. They are usually combined with perfect surveillance systems to monitor all domestic environments and protect us from any intrusion. In fact, a few clicks are enough to open an "electronic eye" in every corner of the house, turn on the lights and possibly call the police if we notice that something is wrong.

All these devices are really in demand by those who are thinking of buying a house in Venice and are already thinking about how to make it efficient from an energy point of view, but we must also not forget what the market offers us for our entertainment.

Absolutely to recommend the wireless speakers and design, which will be activated directly from our smartphone, connecting to your favorite playlist. In this case, even small preliminary installation works are not necessary to satisfy the desire to listen to something beautiful through devices that perfectly adapt to our furniture.

Do we want to insert something technological in every corner of our new home in Venice ? Even for the bathroom there is a solution that is right for us, such as the wi-fi mirror that allows you to watch the weather forecast or read the news while we are combing our hair. A home automation device capable of creating a Matrix atmosphere even in a 16th century house.
