Smart Home technology can help your home stand out from the competition in the neighborhood. It's not just millennials and Gen Ys that want a home with technology that keeps them secure and connected, but Baby Boomers are looking for more convenience in their lives too.
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.
With today’s technology available to consumers, it can be pretty easy 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.
Smart Home technology does not have to cost an arm and leg to install either. The big box building stores have a lot of devices to select from, such as Home Depot and Lowe's. Even Amazon's Alexa has many talents running your smart home devices. For more information on Smart Home technology, download my ebook here.
