Smart Homes are memorable. You can turn your home into a smart home for less than you might imagine. Buyers are looking for technology, and turning your home into a Smart Home will make your home stand out. Millennials and Gen Ys may be the largest groups wanting a home with technology that keeps them secure and connected, but they are not the only generations wanting technology! Baby Boomers are also looking for more convenience in their lives, after all, they are the generation that invented computers!
Connecting devices to your smart phone can save energy, money, and time. There are four categories of smart devices:
Utilities - Thermostat, light bulbs, sprinkler, electrical outlet, ceiling fan, stove, washer and dryer, powered window shades, etc.
Safety - Wireless key entry, doorbell, garage door, outdoor lighting, etc.
Security - Burglar alarm, smoke alarm, carbon monoxide detector, or any sensor that triggers a call for emergency assistance.
Audio / Visual - Personal assistant such as Alexa or Siri, TVs, music, etc.
Today’s technology is available to consumers from online stores such as Amazon with the Alexa series, as well as big box home improvement stores such as Home Depot and Lowes! Plus it can be pretty easy and inexpensive to get started. Setting your home up with Smart Home devices can be a great marketing tool, and make your home stand out, without too much out of pocket.
