The latest HGTV Smart Home 2018 giveaway is here! This two-story, Southern-style home is located in a private resort community called Palmetto Bluff in the coastal low country of South Carolina. The home is 2,850 square feet, with three bedrooms and three and a half baths; and, as the name suggests, it uses smart technology everywhere.
The Southern-style smart home features an open floor plan and a hybrid of coastal, farmhouse and industrial styles.
Here are 7 of the coolest tech features from the HGTV Smart Home 2018:1. A paper-thin TV masquerades as a high-definition art display
A flat screen TV above the fireplace displays high-resolution art or photos when not in TV mode. “Invisible Connection” technology eliminates wire and cables.
2. Customize smart beds for every sleeping style
All bedrooms contain programmable Sleep Number beds, including this master suite Flextop King, i10 Sleep Number 360 smart bed with air pressure monitoring. Customize firmness, adjust head positions and even warm your feet.
3. Smart skylights make your life sunnier
As well as adding brightness throughout the house, VELUX skylights automatically close when rainfall is detected. What’s more, they’re solar-powered and energy efficient.
4. A connected kitchen keeps you entertained
Appliances feature wireless internet, and the CabiTV’s integrated cabinet door above the oven doubles as a sleek television without requiring counter space.
5. A smart toilet in the guest room will fascinate your guests
Kohler’s Numi toilet’s motion-activated cover and seat facilitates hands-free opening and closing. A seat warmer and foot warmer ensures you’ll be comfortable even on the coldest of days.
6. The kids will love the secret virtual reality playroom
Nanoleaf Aurora Rhythm’s modular, geometric lighting draws you in from behind the sitting room bookcase. The panels include endless color choices that can be customized from a home computer system.
The small VR gaming room of the HGTV Smart Home 2018 is high-tech and comes with the latest Play Station 4, which incorporates connected gaming, personalization and integrated social capabilities.
7. The master bath keeps you up to date with current events
The mirrors in the master bath do more than reflect. These Smart Touch Vanity Mirrors also project the latest news, stock updates and social media feeds. An Ocea waterproof bathroom television is mounted in the shower and blends into the design with a mirror glass finish. The TV also has Wi-Fi networking for streaming smartphone content.
A coffee station is also at your disposal, which self-stores when not in use, thanks to the Nexus21 hidden storage lift.
