Apps for the Homeowner, Featuring 0 Whispering Palms Lane on the Isle of Palms

Dec 28, 2015 • By Places Real Estate • 0 Comments


This time of year, homes are flooded with new gadgets – drones, hover boards, new laptops, and smart phones.  As you revamp on the digital front, have a look at the numerous apps that are available to help with the many duties of home ownership.

You can do everything from monitor your pets, to control the temperature, to manage monthly bills, to even leveling a picture – all from the small screen on your smartphone.

Wired Magazine describes Brightnest as “like Lifehacker for your home.”  Use this app to keep your home in optimum working condition. The app is full of home tips, schedules, reminders for all aspects of home life including cleaning, design, and easy repairs.

Billminder does just what it implies – help manage and organize all your monthly bills, budgets, and gives you reminders of due dates.

HomeLogic with Mobile Control is designed to work in concert with HomeLogic products in your home and lets you control the lighting, heating, alarm and audio systems from your phone.

For the homeowner that is new to town, Aroundme helps you locate local businesses, restaurants, grocery stores, hospitals, and just about anything you can think of in the immediate radius.

Dog Monitor lets you see what Fido is up to while you away from home – know when he is barking, have a video “chat”, or just watch him chew the sofa.

For design inspiration turn to Houzz Interior Design Ideas.  This app is chockfull of millions of photos and lookbooks organized by style or room type.

One task that every homeowner faces is hanging a picture and then straightening it.  iHandy Level makes this task easy-peasy as well as any other leveling challenges around the house.

Photo Measures is another great app for decorating.  You can take pictures of your home or a piece of furniture and directly add measurements and angles to the image for easy access while shopping for furnishings or planning a remodel.

0 Whispering Palms Lane, on the Isle of Palms, is proposed new construction by K C Wood Custom Homes.  This gorgeous home plan affords the opportunity to add all the gadgets, digital features, and techno perks.  Click here to schedule your private showing of 0 Whispering Palms Lane.
