Q: I’ve been thinking about upgrading my house to a smart home. What smart features should I be looking for as I shop around?

A: Smart homes are becoming more and more popular — and with good reason. Home automation is the ultimate union of technology, convenience and security. The list of things smart homes can do is expanding daily, and so are the possibilities, which means that planning a smart home can be a dizzying experience. 

Let’s keep it simple by focusing on five of the most important components of a smart home.

Advanced home network

You’ve probably heard of the “Internet of Things” by now. It refers to the wirelessly controlled network of devices that is becoming a bigger part of our lives and is central to the smart home. To maintain a highly functional Internet of Things, the automated home needs something a bit more robust than a wireless router tucked out of sight to maintain an unbroken blanket of Wi-Fi. It needs enterprise-class networking equipment, as well as several wireless access points placed strategically throughout the home.

If you have been grocery shopping lately, you have likely noticed it’s harder to find staple foods, toiletries, and baby formula. Supply shortages are frustrating for all of us, but for those who were already facing food insecurity before the pandemic, the situation is far more dire.

Wipliance is partnering with Food Lifeline – Western Washington’s largest hunger relief agency – to make sure that hunger doesn’t have to happen in our communities.

Now through May 15*, Wipliance will donate 10% of your next purchase to Food Lifeline.

For every new project purchased, Wipliance will make a donation in your name valued at 10% of your purchase. We are working to make sure that those struggling to make ends meet always have access to nutritious food.

Food Lifeline serves more than 700,000 people annually via their network of over 300 food banks, shelters, and meal programs. 

In 2019, Food Lifeline distributed 58 million pounds of food via this network - the equivalent of 49 million meals. Food Lifeline has seen a 30% increase for food assistance across the state as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.

Hands-free, secure and full of bass: How to create the smart home of your dreams

The Seattle Times Oct. 24, 2019 at 2:45 pm

It seems like everyone is doing it. Talking to Alexa, asking Google questions, dimming the lights and turning on the oven with an app.

Yes, smart homes are hot, and for good reason: They can save valuable resources such as energy and money. But is being that plugged-in really all it’s cracked up to be? There are issues of privacy, and of just being overwhelmed by technology.

We talked to some experts and did a little digging of our own in order to pass on some key tips and products to help build the smart home of your dreams — rather than something out of a dystopian nightmare.

If you’re looking for more safety

Because Seattle has one of the highest rates of property theft in the country, you may be looking to beef up security on the home front. Thanks to advances in technology and industry disrupters, there are now an array of options for home security systems, from simple to robust.
