Turn Your Home Into a Smart Home Affordably

Turning your home into a Smart Home before putting on the market, can help you home stand out from the competition. It's not just Millennials and Gen Ys desiring a home with smart home technology to keep them secure and connected. Even Baby Boomers look for more convenience in their lives and they know how to use it! Remember, that is the generation that built the computer!

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.

You can find compatible devices very affordably. If you have a big box home improvement store such as Lowe's or Home Depot, they offer many compatible devices at great prices. If you are invested in the Alexa Series, Amazon has a plethora of compatible devices. Be sure to check out the garage door opener (my personal fave).

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.
