A Colorado builder is incorporating iPads into new homes.
Apple’s magical device is used regulate all the electronic systems in the house — from lights, motorized blinds, entertainment systems (music, TV etc.) to baby monitors and closed-circuit cameras. The docks are built in but the iPads can be removed.
It takes just two iPads to run a house. The base price for an iPad control system, including the devices, costs $5,000. The cost can levitate up to $60,00 for audio, video, security and other equipment.
“The iPad has brought the entry-level price point down significantly, because an 8-inch in-wall touch screen before cost upwards of $3,000 or more,” Travis Deatherage of in-home tech specialits Solstice Multimedia told The Denver Post. “Now we can get a $500 iPad and still provide most of the functionality that an in-wall touch panel can give.”
Prices for a 3,400-square- foot model house at The Overlook, a gated community in Lone Tree Colorado, with built-in iPad tech starts at around $720,000.
