5 Essential Tech Features that Make Pecan Square Homes Smart

We’re in the era of Smart; smart phones, smart fixtures, smart thermostats, smart doorbells, smart appliances. And, let’s face it, our home isn’t simply where we live nowadays. It’s much, much more, especially in the age of the coronavirus. Now, our home is our office, our classroom, and—thanks to COVID-19—our only source of entertainment. Homes that support so many facets of our lives need to be more than livable. They need to be Smart. They need to be Pecan Square.

Pecan Square is a master planned community with the smartest smart homes in North Texas. Outfitted with tons of “tech that will change your home life”, each home comes standard with a spate of technology designed to keep you connected.

Homes are built on Hillwood Communities’ five “Live Smart” principles. These are future-focused values that combine quality construction with forward-thinking planning, encompassing essentials like connection, wellbeing, enrichment, stewardship, and convenience. At Pecan Square, that includes features like:

  • Lightning fast, half-gig Internet connectivity,
  • Amazon help within and outside the home, and
  • On-site tech experts to help you at a moment’s notice.

Let’s take a closer look at a few of the many things that makes Pecan Square a cut above.

Amazon Post Parcel Pick-Up

Raise your hand if you’re ordering more online these days. Us, too! Unfortunately, package theft is at an all-time high. According to researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, 1.7 million packages are lost or stolen every single day!

Even with a Ring video doorbell, like the one that comes built-in to every Pecan Square home, you can never ensure that a porch package is 100% secure. But with Pecan Square’s self-service package pick up, you can easily trade out shopping bags for boxes without ever having to worry whether your delivery is in jeopardy.

Our Amazon Post features a safe locker pick-up site. It’s always open, so you can order to your heart’s content knowing your parcels will be ready and waiting.

Half Gig Internet Included with Wi-Fi coverage

Pecan Square homes offer Wi-Fi far and wide. With our whole home coverage, you’ll be able to hop online from front porch to patio without missing a minute.

This crazy-fast, half-gig connectivity is installed before you ever move-in, so you’re up and running as soon as you enter your front door. For those who have an insatiable need for speed, you can easily upgrade to a full gig in a snap.

On-site tech expert

Automated homes, meet your dedicated home automation professional. Pecan Square makes sure there’s a pro on-site Monday through Friday, so you never have to tackle tech needs by yourself. These on-hand handymen are well versed in all things AV. Their home automation expertise can help you fix your home network, set up your Alexa connection, or get to know the ropes of your new, smart home.

Amazon Alexa Connect

Let the automation continue! With your home’s Amazon Echo Show, you have a personal assistant on-call 24/7. Whether you want to binge watch a show on Netflix, dim the lights for a romantic meal, or set a reminder to attend the community pool party, all you have to do is ask Alexa!

Co-working Space

Need a new way to work? Skip the commute and set up shop at Pecan Square’s co-working center. A short jaunt to The Greeting House provides everything you need to bring home the bacon.

Consider it your office away from the office (or home office), complete with workstations, meeting rooms, even a built-in coffee shop when you need a caffeine jolt.

Home isn’t just where the heart is. It’s also where we’re likely to learn, work, and play in the near and distant future. Making your way to Pecan Square is a Smart move.
