You can name the brand behind most of the consumer products you own, like your sneakers, wrist watch, or smartphone. But what about your house? Could there be benefits to conceptualizing your home as a product, similar to how you view your smartphone?

Veev thinks so. The California-based building technology company believes that traditional construction methods leave little room for the innovation we have come to expect from other consumer products. That’s why they build all the components for their homes off-site.

This allows Veev to efficiently integrate modern technology into those components, including in-wall touch panels, custom lighting and blinds systems, and walls that come with electricity, plumbing, and sensors pre-installed.
