Technology is not going away any time soon. These days, 46% of consumers say that technology is a major factor in their home buying decision. An astounding 94% of people will even give up 1,000 square feet of living space for more technology in their homes.
As a homeowner or home seller, what kind of technology is available for your property?
First of all, you need to check out smart thermostats. Smart thermostats are the wave of the future and there is a great system called Nest available for you right now. Nest learns your living patterns; it figures out what temperature you like when you’re home or not at home and adjusts accordingly.
Home buyers are also paying attention to security. They want their valuables, pets, and lifestyle secured. Many companies have started to provide pin-sized, motion-activated cameras that you can place throughout your property. You will know if your cat is destroying your furniture, if someone is breaking in through the window, or if your spouse is going out without your knowledge.
You should also pay attention to the kitchen. Everyone wants their meals to be cooked at the perfect temperature, and no one likes having to throw away unused milk, eggs, or sour cream when they expire. Bluetooth thermometers can help you avoid overcooking your steak ever again, and Samsung has developed a refrigerator that reminds you to use your perishables and lets you know when it’s time to throw things away.
Finally, you can control everything in your home with one remote from a company called Savant. This remote will control the thermostat, TV, lighting, and music.
This is the direction technology is headed in, so get on board. The latest technology will help make your home stand out when it comes time to sell while making your life easier in the meantime.
