Top Tech Features for Manufactured Housing

Technology runs the world. It’s something we’ve known, and definitely something we’ve come to be even more comfortable with during these unprecedented times. With the global spread of coronavirus, much of the workforce in the U.S. and beyond is hunkering down at home and finding themselves online – turning to technology to carry out day-to-day career and connectivity tasks, along with other household and lifestyle duties.

And for better or worse, today’s society has reached a point where technology has become a necessity in everyday life. Luckily, manufactured homes are up to the task when it comes to current and necessary trends. Manufactured homes can very much be equipped to accommodate today’s top tech and devices. Following, check out the Alabama Manufactured Housing Association’s top picks for tech features available in manufactured homes.

Tablet Mounts

Manufactured homes can be customized to come equipped with high-tech tablets, especially in highly trafficked areas of the home, such as the living room and kitchen. Whether you need to look up a recipe on the fly while cooking a meal or play music while hosting a gathering, a built-in tablet feature provides more flexibility at the homeowner’s fingertips. The tablet mount feature allows you to consolidate multiple tech devices into one information hub.

The tablet will also be able to control a number of additional tech features, such as your programmable thermostat, blinds, home security system, and multimedia library from one central location. The tablet mount docks onto the wall and, again, is placed in the most trafficked areas of your manufactured home for easy access.

Keyless Entry Access

If you have ever lost your house key then you understand how frustrating it is not being able to get into your own home. Luckily, manufactured homes can be updated to include a keyless entry option that will allow the homeowner and all occupants access to the home without a physical key.

Keyless entry features include easy-to-use number pads that can be installed on any exterior door. This tech feature can help eliminate the need to carry a house key or keep a hide-a-key, which could help make your home safer.

Built-In Power Strips

Have you ever noticed that your only available counter space for an important kitchen appliance is nowhere near a power outlet? Or maybe you have multiple pieces of tech at your home-office desk (computer, printer, second monitor, etc.) with only one or two outlets available on the closest wall?

If the answer is yes, then you know the struggle of having to go out of your way to simply use an outlet. You could resort to a bulky power strip or extension cord, but that option can get messy very quickly, and a bunch of jumbled cords isn’t the most aesthetically pleasing setup.

If this sounds like a problem you’ve run into, then a built-in power strip for your manufactured home might be the perfect solution for you. These built-in, pop up power solutions can be added to a number of manufactured home features such as kitchen counters, desk spaces, and bedrooms.

Top Appliances

Manufactured home manufacturers include all name brand kitchen appliances. Many home buyers choose to upgrade those appliances to include a deluxe range dishwasher and side-by-side refrigerator in black or stainless steel, for example.

A growing number of manufacturers also offer industry-rated appliances which conserve energy and significantly reduce utility costs. Manufactured homeowners can request the specific kitchen tech they are looking for on a case-by-case basis when working with retailers and manufacturers.

The Possibilities are Endless

The tech capabilities for manufactured homes have evolved tremendously. For more information and specific inquiries, do not hesitate to reach out to any of the credible manufactured home retailers listed on the AMHA website.
