Building a luxury home means finally getting the castle that you’ve always dreamed about. It also means that you can select the features and technology that is perfectly suited to your lifestyle.

If you care about energy efficiency, and the gadgets that allow you to have a fully automated home just like the Jetsons, smart technology is definitely something you’ll want to think about including once your home is ready. Here are some of the most popular gadgets of the past few years for inspiration!

A Transparent TV
You’ve heard of flat screen televisions and 3D televisions, but how about transparent TVs? For a long time the invisible or see-through television was just a design dream, but at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the dream finally came true.

Self-Sterilizing Door Handle
Hate germs? You may want to consider installing this amazing self-sterilizing door handle on your exterior doors. When the handle’s in use, a internal UV light comes on, stopping germs in their tracks. When not in use, the UV light remains off, and it looks like a normal handle.

Smart Thermostat
Heating and cooling is one of the biggest expenses for homeowners, and most of it goes to energy that’s used inefficiently. A smart thermostat can learn your habits, and be programmed to alter the temperature of your home depending on whether or not you’re in it.

Robotic Pool Cleaner
Pools are an amazing home feature, especially in Fairfax where summers can get awfully warm! However, cleaning a pool isn’t nearly as much fun as taking a dip in it. That’s why a robotic pool cleaner is a must-have. It can be programmed to clean the pool at night when you’re asleep, or during the day when you’re at work.
