Smart home technology and the idea of integrated and automated residential spaces have been burgeoning possibilities in recent years. For now, the advancements have mostly been reserved for higher-end home and construction projects, something that, our guest, Dan Robinson, hopes to open up. Dan Robinson Construction Management is Dan's company and we hear from him about their focus and the motivation behind embracing the forward-thinking philosophy of smart homes. We start off our conversation hearing about the relevant terms; Dan explains how smart home tech fits into a larger conception of home automation and the scope of these fields. Our conversation brings into clarity the idea of the home as the central hub of contemporary life, something that is strongly contrasted with recent history. Dan gives us his perspective on the easiest ways for families and individuals to begin the process of automation, citing thermostats and blinds as the simplest and most effective gateways. We talk about the ideas of sustainability and convenience and who can most benefit most from what this technology has to offer. So for all this and more from Dan, listen in with us today on Build Our Future!
