By | Residential Solutions, Smart Home Trends |

The concept of a smart home began as something reserved for the wealthiest homeowners. But as smart technology has become more common and easier to produce, it has also become more accessible to the average property owner. It won’t be long until it is a necessity at the top of most buyers’ lists. That’s why it’s important to take into account how much resale value a project will yield when you consider upgrading your home with new smart technology.

Here are a few of the smart home features with the best return on investment to help you determine which are the most worthwhile for your needs and goals!

Home Automation Systems

In the age of the smartphone, people want everything they need to be right at their fingertips. Smart home automation systems make that possible by giving you remote access to all of your home’s major systems and features in one central hub. With a single remote or phone app you’re able to control your lighting, security, thermostat, garage doors, appliances, and even your drapes! The convenience and comfort of home automation is sure to grab any home buyer’s attention.

Smart Lighting, Heating & Cooling Systems

Integrating smart technology with your major utilities makes it easy to keep your home climate comfortable and set to your preferences. This level of temperature and lighting control will also reduce the amount of energy your home uses each month, saving you money on utilities and making your property more sustainable—a big selling point in today’s real estate market. If you pair your smart utilities with smart appliances, you’ll maximize your savings and home value even more.

Security & Surveillance Systems

Smart home security and video surveillance offer protection for your family, belongings, and your entire property. This makes it one of the top investments in terms of ROI. Technology that safeguards you and your valuables increases your home’s value and gives you (or whoever may be looking to buy your property) peace of mind. Some of the biggest smart security features prospective homeowners are looking for include video doorbells, facial recognition software, and remote camera access/control.

Smart Home Trends 2019

Smart Home Trends You’ll Most Likely See This Year

By | Custom Home Entertainment, Home Automation Systems, Smart Home Trends |

“How much ‘smarter’ can my home possibly get?” At this point, you might be asking yourself that very question. Smart homes have become all the rage in recent years with companies finding new ways to make everything from HVAC systems and appliances to lighting and TVs “smarter” than ever before. And they’re not done, either. Companies are planning to continue to push the envelope in 2019 to make products that will make your home even smarter.

Here are some smart home trends you’ll likely see this year:

Video doorbells

By now, you’ve probably seen at least a few of your neighbors install video doorbells from companies like Ring and Nest outside of their front doors. People are on a quest to stop so-called “porch pirates” from stealing packages off their front porches. They’re also interested in keeping their homes safer by recording what goes on around them. So, you’re probably going to be seeing a whole lot more video doorbells popping up throughout your neighborhood.

Appliances with touchscreens

Imagine checking out what’s going on in other parts of your home by looking at a touchscreen that sits over top of your stove or coming up with the perfect recipe for dinner by looking at a touchscreen that’s embedded in the front of your refrigerator. It’s not going to be too long before you’re doing these things. Most appliance manufacturers are finding innovate new ways to work touchscreens into almost all of their appliances.

Robots

Okay, so the “robots” that are going to be entering many homes soon aren’t like the robots that used to run around on The Jetsons. The world isn’t that futuristic just yet. But there are all kinds of robots capable of performing tasks that will be welcomed into American homes soon. For example, there are companies working on robots that can fold laundry. There are also companies working on robots that can prepare entire three-course meals. These robots could take care of many of the tasks you’re doing on your own right now!
