What Is A Smart Home?
As technology progresses it has begun to shape the way we interact with our homes. Today, we are enjoying a new generation of tools that can help automate and enhance our homes. These new and emerging devices are affordable and easily installed in your home. The benefits of enhancing your lifestyle is innumerable. There are several categories of smart home tools including; lighting, safety, entertainment, appliances, heating and cooling, security and temperature. CNET is the leading source of technology information and has partnered with Coldwell Banker to establish an industry standard for defining a Smart Home.
A Smart Home is defined as a home that is equipped with network-connected products (aka “smart products,” connected via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or similar protocols) for controlling, automating and optimizing functions such as temperature, lighting, security, safety or entertainment, either remotely by a phone, tablet, computer or a separate system within the home itself.
Having these resources as part of your home can greatly enhance the desirability of your home by buyers. In a recent survey 81% of home buyers are more likely to purchase a home with Smart Technologies in place. Buyers overwhelming desire a move-in ready home and 57% said that they would buy an older home if it had smart home technologies already in place.
