Lennar’s new model home in Rancho Sienna showcases Wi-Fi CERTIFIED technology
Now open in one of Rancho Sienna’s newest neighborhoods, Lennar’s new Giallo model home is much more than a family-friendly four-bedroom floor plan. It is also one of the first model homes in the Austin area to showcase the new Wi-Fi CERTIFIED technology package, which integrates pre-installed wireless technology to provide consistent and amplified Wi-Fi coverage in every room, with no dead spots.
The Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Home Design standard is an initiative of Wi-Fi Alliance, a global network of companies promoting wireless technology.
Lennar is the first homebuilder to adopt the standard, which promises homeowners a seamless, turnkey experience. With the typical household today using eight connected devices, such as cell phones and tablets, having whole-home Wi-Fi coverage that meets high connectivity and performance standards has never been more important.
All Lennar homes in Rancho Sienna are also fully integrated with home automation and voice control, allowing homeowners to control lighting, door locks, thermostats and other systems by talking to Amazon Alexa. Lennar has partnered with top smart home manufacturers including Ring, Honeywell, Kwikset, Lutron and Samsung to integrate their wireless home automation products into its new homes.
Consumers are excited about smart home technology, but the complexity of installing and using many different systems and devices has deterred many from taking advantage of the latest technologies, according to David Kaiserman, president of Lennar Ventures.
“Introducing Amazon gives homeowners an almost quintessential experience that’s not actually about the technology itself, but about how it fits into their life,” he said in an interview with Builder magazine. “We’re sitting at an incredible time right now, and the opportunity for us as builders is to demonstrate how simple but powerful the modern home can be. Wi-Fi is the beginning of that for us."
