With technology infiltrating every part of our lives, it’s no surprise that smart-tech has become something people desire in their home. Taking a cue from the ease that technologically enabled devices can bring to our lives, it’s no surprise that washers, dryers, dishwashers, and even security systems are becoming smart phone enabled. Being able to connect to the devices in your home streamlines maintenance and gives a greater sense of security when away from the home. In particular, millennial home buyers are in the market for smart-optimized homes. If you want to maximize the value of your home, maybe it’s time to embrace the smart technology trend—below we will review some of the leading trends.
1. Smart Doorbells: These devices provide a view of the outside of your home, so that you can see who is ringing your bell just by checking your phone—even if you’re not home!
2. Smart Security: These systems allow you to secure both the interior and perimeter of your home, arm and disarm via an app on your smartphone, and view video feeds from outside of your home. These systems bring a greater sense of security to homeowners and increase the control you have over the security of your home from afar.
3. Smart Thermostat: Control the temperature of your home from an app on your phone. No more programming ugly thermostats that mount on the wall.
Should you embrace the smart home trends?
