TecHome Refresh offers “quick hits” of the content we are working on this week.
Staff writer Mike Black takes the lead in this week’s TecHome Refresh, going over our top stories from last week and some hot topics we’re diving into this week.
First off … find out how integrators and a manufacturer came together to offer a smart, accommodating home for a disabled U.S. Marine.
Just coming off of Memorial Day, we’ve been focusing on our veterans. We put together a photo showcase. Also, Apple’s Siri is expected to receive a smart home overhaul. Could this be the electronic giant’s attempt to compete with the Echo and Google Home? Plus, take a photo tour through a luxury townhouse community that is appealing to customers with high-end security systems and multi-room audio.
But first, coming up this week …
A global challenge to get builders thinking hard about energy-efficient building techniques begins, and an inside look at the best connected doorbells on the market.
Plus, later this week, we focus on major national builders Pardee and Lennar with some of their biggest plans for the rest of 2016.
