Turning your home into a smart home can help your home stand out from the other homes on the market? Millennials and Gen Ys are the largest groups wanting a home with smart home technology that keeps them secure and connected. Even Baby Boomers look for more convenience in their lives and they know how to use it!
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 and inexpensive to get started. Setting your home up with Smart Home devices like those sold through Amazon that are Alexa compatible are affordable and easy to install. This can be a great marketing tool, and make your home memorable, without too much out of pocket.
