Building a house. 99% of HomeKit devices seem to be battery powered only. Argh!

I bought a piece of property and am designing a house. I want to integrate it VERY HomeKit. The frustration I face is that every device seems to be battery powered. This is probably not a problem if you have a few dozen devices, but if you make every door and every window and motion sensor in every room and all the HomeKit switches instead of wired switches … I will spend my whole life weird replacing the batteries . Does anyone know about items in the following categories that can be connected to power? Even better if I use wires! -window opening sensors-water sensors-glass breaking sensors-interior opening sensors-motion sensors-interior locks-window blinds-smoke detectors
