Kitchens are the central hub of the home and you can easily change the ambiance of the space for cooking, cleaning, entertaining, doing homework, or reading. Imagine pressing “Prepare” and your favorite music playlist comes on, shades raise to fill the room with sunlight, and counters brighten accordingly. You can keep an eye on the kids from the touch screen or see who’s at the door when the doorbell rings. Simply use the intercom from the same control to tell them dinner is ready instead of shouting. Keep counters clear and focus on the granite countertops, Viking range or Sub-Zero refrigerator, not the wires, speakers or TV.
