Home automation with Ben and Adam MacKenzie | Episode 37

On this episode of The Building Code, we’re talking with brothers Ben and Adam MacKenzie. Ben and Adam are engineers, LEED Green Associates, co-owners of Budget Blinds in Lincoln and just so happen to be identical twins. They joined us in-studio to talk about home automation and trends in the commercial and residential markets.

What is Home Automation?

Home automation is what it sounds like – the automation of your home! This can include, but is not limited to, lighting, blinds, security, sound and smart heating/air systems. Specifically, it is the technological control over what you interact with in your home.

Perks of Home Automation

Why should you automate your home? Ben and Adam explain some of the pros:

    • With automated blinds alone, you save 10% on your heating and cooling bill
    • Efficiency
    • Energy saving
    • Eco-friendly
    • For contractors and builders, automating the homes they build is a differentiator

Paul added a reason to automate your home is for the “cool factor.” He’s not wrong.
