It’s hard to believe we’re a full month into the new year, but here we are! Now that everyone has recovered from the holiday hustle and bustle, it’s time to cozy up at home while we wait out Atlanta’s brief-but-frigid winter season. It’s also a great time to check out the latest home technology trends and see what’s in store for 2022.
Home Technology for Wellness
Is personal wellness a priority for you this year? If so, you don’t want to miss out on the new wave of home technology tools that can help you feel your best. The COVID-19 pandemic has continued to highlight the importance of investing in your home environment for both mental and physical wellness, and the applications continue to expand, from air filtration to lighting and beyond. Without a doubt, the biggest news in wellness technology is circadian lighting.
Automated lighting systems are some of our most requested installations here at BlueVision, and for good reason. You may already know some of the benefits of automated lighting — convenience, comfort, ambiance, security, energy savings, and home value — but did you know that smart lighting can even support your health and wellness journey by keeping your circadian rhythm in sync?
The latest hot home technology trend is circadian lighting, which adjusts the temperature and intensity of lighting throughout your home depending on the time of day. Two of our featured brands, Crestron and Savant, have been leading the way in circadian lighting technology, as well as overall customization to help you achieve your ideal lightscaping indoors and out.
Instead of waking up to a blaring alarm, you can now wake up to a pre-programmed “sunrise,” with morning light that helps energize you. Your smart lighting will continue to adjust throughout the day, with more intense white light to aid in focus and productivity during midday, shifting to dimmer, warmer light in the late afternoon and evening that signals your body to start preparing for sleep. These shifts in light color and quality can help you overcome the circadian rhythm disturbances that are caused by our increasingly digital, screen-oriented world, leading to more energy during the day and better sleep at night.
Be sure to ask us about Savant’s TrueImage lighting system, which allows you to control light color, brightness, and temperature from your phone, as well as the new Daylight Mode designed specifically for circadian wellness.
New in Home Entertainment Technology
Multi-Functional Media Rooms
The home theater will never go out of style, especially now that we’re in the third year of a global pandemic that has revolutionized the way we consume media. However, the latest trend in home entertainment is marked by a departure from home theaters and media rooms with cinema-style seating.
The in-home theater is giving way to more modern, multi-functional spaces that can be used not only for viewing first-run media on a large screen, but also for exploring new frontiers in video gaming and AR/VR (augmented reality/virtual reality) with an Oculus or Morpheus system.
Modern Minimalism Meets Home Entertainment
This shift towards multi-functionality has also dramatically changed the look of home entertainment spaces. The popularity of movie theater styling is waning as homeowners opt instead for comfortable, contemporary, and flexible spaces that feature lounge-style sectional seating and stylish, programmable ambient lighting scenes for every mood.
We’ve been helping Atlanta homeowners create their dream home entertainment rooms for years, and we now offer more options than ever before to help you integrate professional quality media into your home without sacrificing style. TVs that look like framed art, luxury A/V cabinets, retractable screens, and hidden technology solutions give you the entertainment options you want when you want them, and the appearance of minimalism when you don’t. Come by our showroom or get in touch to learn more about how we can upgrade your home entertainment with cutting-edge products from Leon, Seura, VisionArt, Nexus 21, Inca Lifts, Salamander, Kaleidescape, Stewart, EPV, Display Technologies, Sony, Meridian, and more.
