The nation’s largest private homebuilder, Taylor Morrison, is delivering the simplicity and elegance of connected home automation to homebuyers, allowing them to control their Taylor Morrison home at a touch of button from any smartphone or tablet computer without adding to the cost of their new purchase.
The new Interactive Home™ system from Taylor Morrison currently comes as standard feature in the Houston market and includes a front door monitoring system, whole-house audio system, Selective Call Intercom, up to six camera monitors and a lighting control system that manages everything from lights to small appliances and is completely programmable.
The program launched in Houston with homebuyers selecting one of two packages as a standard, included feature in their new Taylor Morrison home. The company has plans to roll the program out at the national level later this year.
Taylor Morrison CEO and President Sheryl Palmer said the company has been working to integrate home automation into its product lines for some time now and pointed to how real world technology is now making the ideas Taylor Morrison helped introduce with the Innoventions Dream Home exhibit located in Disneyland Park a reality for today’s homebuyers.
“Smartphones, tablet PCs and the increased capabilities of the Internet have made this possible for our homebuyers,” she says. “Now it’s conceivable to control your lighting, see who’s at the front door or adjust the temperature of your home from a smartphone.”
It’s all part of the Taylor Morrison vision to usher in a new precedent for connected living. The flexibility of the Interactive Home means homeowners can monitor the front door of their Taylor Morrison home from any TV or from the included LCD Command Center. The home audio system draws from digitally-stored music on a PC, iTunes or digital music player to fill the home with their favorite musical sounds.
The industry-leading Selective Call Intercom system provides a hands-free way to communicate between rooms and even includes voice messaging, broadcasting capabilities and room monitoring. For added security, up to six cameras can be added to the Interactive Home™ system, ensuring peace of mind for every homebuyer.
“Homebuyers have been waiting for their devices and homes to merge and provide the level of connectivity that has been promised for so long,” Palmer said. “With the Interactive Home™ system, that day has finally arrived.”
