Tampa, FL, May 06, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Chalmers Homes is the first custom homebuilder in West Central Florida to offer Apple HomeKit
connected home products as standard to new homebuyers, interfacing with Apple's Home app and integrating with HomeKit-enabled accessories including lighting, thermostats, locks and Wi-Fi.
“We are a forward-thinking homebuilder that strives to be on the leading edge of innovation and technology,” said Chalmers Homes President, Drew Chalmers. “The market is ready to experience the ease and efficiency of Apple’s HomeKit connected home experience and we are thrilled to be the first in the area to offer the Apple HomeKit as standard in all of our new homes,” said Chalmers. “Our first 'connected' home is 'The Madison,' currently under construction in Tampa, Florida.”
"Using Apple's Siri interface or the Apple Home App on iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch, homeowners can easily control HomeKit-connected devices so that they work smarter," said Chalmers. HomeKit's advantages extend to security and privacy, because communication from the iOS device and home accessories are encrypted, with all home data living privately on the device, not stored in the cloud. HomeKit-enabled lighting and smart thermostats help to efficiently manage home energy.
Apple HomeKit-enabled accessories that come standard in Chalmers Homes are:
• Lutron Caséta Wireless Smart Lighting (in select areas of the home)
• Carrier COR Wi-Fi Thermostat
• Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt (Bluetooth-enabled front door entry lock)
• Apple AirExpress (providing peak Wi-Fi performance throughout the home)
Chalmers Homes will add new home automation products as they continue to integrate with HomeKit.
