With so much emphasis on an eco-friendly living environment, as well as leaving a smaller carbon footprint on our planet, many new homeowners are incorporating "smart home" technology into their new residences. A "smart home" is one that is equiped with special structured wiring which provides its homeowners with energy effciency, security, comfort and convenience knowing that all occupants may remotely access an automated home program whether you're near the home or not.

"Smart Home" is the term commonly used to define a residence that has appliances, lighting, heating, air conditioning, TVs, computers, entertainment, audio & video systems, security, and camera systems that are capable of communicating with one another. The interfacing can be controlled remotely by a schedule, from any room in the home, as well as remotely from any location globally by internet or smartphone. 

Custom builders are increasingly incorporating eco-friendly features into projects, to meet demand from the energy efficient homeowner.  More than half of builders say they are working on green projects. Those percentages are future homeowners desiring green homes are expected to rise over the next five years. 

Today’s homebuyers desire eco-friendly lifestyles.  They are drawn to healthier living.  Much of the current homeowner’s life is spent in cars and offices. They want to be in easy to reach of beaches, waterways, and other outdoor adventures, as in the Jupiter and Tequesta area, for their families.  "Green homeowners" want to enjoy the neighborhood or jump on their boat for a fun day on the water and not be concerned with the home.
