Modern Tech Doesn’t Have to Mean Modern Design

Kasey Stanton, Web Content, Coordinator, Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™

Smart homes are commonly associated with sleek, modern designs and slick, futuristic technology. While that may be ideal for some, tech integrations do not necessarily have to be synonymous with contemporary high-tech style. In Charleston, S.C., where quaint tree-lined streets are filled with 1950s cottage-style homes, eLifespaces proved that tech can be found in the most unexpected places.
The laid-back style of the old-school cottage was complemented by a user-friendly system that provided lighting and security control throughout the house. The project was a finalist in the Retrofit Project of the Year up to $50,000 category for the 2015 Mark of Excellence (MOE) System Integrators Awards Program.
