THE MANY WINDSOR-ESSEX COUNTY HOMEOWNERS involved in new
construction and landscaping installations right now have a lot of decisions to
make. While considerations regarding the visual esthetics of your property are
important, even more critical are less obvious features, like the technology that
will elevate your home’s function and security.
“We’re the guys to call to make your home ready for technology,” says Future
House owner Chris Mindorff. Established in 1992 and located in Belle River,
Future House handles every aspect: designing, installing and pre-wiring for
home theatre, home office set up, whole house audio, outdoor audio and full
security, as well as central vacuum systems.
“When you are building a new home, it’s the ideal time for us to run and
conceal wiring, speakers and other components in the walls and basement. Even
wireless technology still needs a fixed power source,” Chris explains. “With our
structured wiring approach, we establish one connection panel in a centralized
spot where everything is plugged in. Cords for satellite TV, phone, internet,
recharging stations and more are tidy, organized and easily accessible should
changes be required in future.”
New technology installations can also often be done in existing homes, although
they typically require retrofitting and wall or ceiling repair. With sleek
profiles and designer colour and material options, system components are so
beautifully incorporated into your home, they are barely discernible.
Advancements in technology have simplified home life yet made installations
more complex. Chris advises, “When you are having new construction or an
addition built, don’t rely on the electrician to do everything. Let them focus
on the basic electrical and then call in Future House, the experts in home
That advice also applies to exterior technology. Outdoor rooms are being
equipped with all the comforts and conveniences of indoor living, including
flat screen TVs connected to cable TV and Blu-ray players and sophisticated
sound systems. Concealed or camouflaged outdoor speakers, wired or wireless,
can be installed throughout your property. While you’re relaxing, working or
entertaining outside, your favourite music adds sound at the perfect volume to
the sensory landscape. “We carry only the most advanced in home technology,
outside and indoors,” Chris assures.
Protect your home and increase your safety and peace of mind with a custom
security system. When you are at work or on vacation, a call
on your cellphone will tell you if your house’s pipes are about
to freeze or the carbon monoxide detector is going off. “We
can install devices that detect intruders, smoke, carbon
monoxide and rising water levels in your sump pump and
alert you before something awful happens,” Chris says.
Wireless motion security devices can be installed anywhere.
Security cameras monitor activity, viewable on your
phone when you aren’t at home. You can also use your phone
or tablet to adjust the heating or cooling, arm or disarm the
security alarm and manage other tasks. Future House offers
different systems to suit your needs and budget.
Ensuring technology enhances your lifestyle without intruding,
Future House puts the power in your hands. To
simply control the lighting, temperature, security, sound,
communications and entertainment, all you have to do is
tap buttons or apps and your home will respond beautifully.
“Future House makes your house simpler, safer and very
cool,” says Chris. “We find a solution that best suits your
lifestyle and your home.”
