A look inside the 2017 HGTV Smart Home in Scottsdale

12 News Arizona:  With an audio system wired into every room, a security system that can monitor for pipe leaks, and outlets with USB ports built in, the HGTV Smart Home 2017 is not your grandma's house.

The fully wired, 3,300-square-foot home is located right in the Valley, in north Scottsdale.  HGTV representatives say they chose Scottsdale -- "The West's Most Western Town" -- for its combination of tech and culture, as well as opportunities for year-round family fun.

Designer Tiffany Brooks says she took her cues for the house from the desert landscape -- using natural materials like stone, wood, leather and glass, as well as incorporating antique tribal pieces and work from local artists.  Full Article and Video:
