Tech-friendly future comes to the West Shore

Future Home on display at Westshore Town Centre in Langford

If you’re an individual who thrives on living in the digital world, it may be worth checking out Telus’s 585-square foot Future Home in Langford.

The home, which is powered by an ultra-quick fibre-optic network, is located in the Westshore Town Centre parking lot from now until Nov. 13.

Features of the home include facial recognition entry, a smart fridge and cooktop that can help guide you while cooking, home monitoring systems, interactive art walls and, of course, the latest in home entertainment, including a 4K Ultra HD TV.

The Future Home showcase comes after Telus announced that it is investing $23.8 million to improve access to its fibre-optic network for some West Shore homes and businesses.

Following its stay on the West Shore, the Future Home will move to the Panorama Recreation Centre in North Saanich.
