Turning your home into a smart home can help you sell your home faster and have it stand out in the memories of those potential buyers. It's not just the Millennials and Gen Ys desiring a home with the newest smart home technology that keeps them secure and connected. It's also the Baby Boomers who look for more convenience in their lives and they know how to use it! Remember, they are the generation who invented the computers as we know them today!
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 can be a great marketing tool, and make your home memorable, without too much out of pocket.
