Smart technologies / home automation
Being able to control your home from anywhere is very convenient and may even help you to save energy.
It will make your home even more comfortable than it already is with well insulated walls.
There are 2 ways of making your house intelligent or smart:
If you prefer to set up your technology with cable, then ICF/PIF/StyroStones should be your preferred method. It provides for an easy installation of all the ducting and piping you should need inside the styrofoam of the concrete poured wall.
If you prefer a wireless method, concrete and particularly a reinforced concrete (usually only in seismic zones) can be an obstacle to radiation. However, this is easy to overcome with amplifiers, just as you amplify the signal of your Wifi-router.
