How to integrate smart devices into the home without losing sight of the aesthetic side – Interior decoration

The pandemic brought significant changes, some of which are still very present, such as telecommuting, virtual meetings, or the use of spaces that were not used before. According to a study conducted by Velux, the so-called Indoor Generation spends more than 90% of their time indoors, which translates to only three hours in open spaces.

In this situation, it is important to create environments where smart devices can be integrated without losing sight of the aesthetic side. In this sense, ADT offers us 5 tips to integrate security systems into the home without sacrificing elegance.

Tips to integrate smart devices

Let’s see what these tips are that will allow us to integrate smart devices in a more harmonious way.

Aim for minimalist design and strategic placement

It is important to choose the location of security cameras and motion sensors carefully, so that they do not disrupt the harmony of the home. While these should not be interfered with by objects like plants or other decorative gadgets so that their operation is not affected, they can always be discreetly installed in corners, ceilings, or hallways; decorating the environment in such a way that it integrates perfectly into the interior design.

Choose devices that are easy and convenient to install

These devices should be able to seamlessly integrate into the home’s aesthetic. Plug-and-play designs that only require placing sensors and devices in strategic locations and connecting them. Also implement a smart home system that centralizes security control. These systems allow managing alarms, cameras, and sensors from a single device, such as a smartphone or a discreet central panel.

Use lighting to both deter and create pleasant environments

Opt for the use of smart lights that illuminate outdoor or even indoor areas that turn on at certain times. In addition to creating a pleasant environment, the lights will help deter potential intruders or visualize and alert of any strange movement. It is even possible to protect the exterior with cameras that, when they detect people’s movement, turn on the integrated lights to deter the thief.

Integrate devices into the space and everyday life

Improving harmony in the home is vital. For example, ADT Smart Security’s intelligent panel also serves as a digital photo frame. With this additional functionality, the family can store their most precious memories and have them present at all times by being perfectly integrated into the home’s aesthetic. Other easily integrable devices are, for example, smart doorbells or peepholes that, besides being easy to install and integrate with the environment, allow to see in real-time who is at the door.

Add “double-use” objects to the decoration

Such as strategically placed mirrors, which not only perform their traditional function but also serve as display screens to monitor strategic points of the home without altering the aesthetic. These can allow seeing around corners of the house or in those areas of difficult visibility, pointing to the opposite side of windows and doors to help detect any suspicious activity.

“Home security doesn’t have to be boring… with a bit of creativity, we can create harmonious and elegant spaces without losing sight of the protection our clients seek. There are many ways to create a safe and attractive home! We will take care of the technology and offer the peace of mind they are looking for, taking care of their loved ones 24 hours a day,” commented José González Osma, CEO of ADT.
