Smart homes are all the rage right now. But, some homeowners are wondering if adding it to their home will increase the resale value. Smart technology can simplify your life, and it can also add value to your home. Here are some smart technology upgrades that you can install in your own home to increase its value.
1. Smart thermostats
Smart thermostats are great to save on electricity costs. Not only can you program the temperature, you can control it from anywhere using your smartphone. Because of this, a smart thermostat is one of the most popular smart home upgrades.
2. Smart security
There are many options when it comes to smart security systems. On one side, you have camera doorbells and wireless cameras. Both of these connect to and can be monitored from your phone. Another side is smart and keyless locks. Both are optimal and budget-friendly upgrades.
3. Smart appliances
While these upgrades are a bit more pricey, they add excellent value to your home. Smart refrigerators are the makings of a dream kitchen. You can shop for groceries, order food, look up recipes and even create a grocery list all from your fridge. Smart ovens and dishwashers are also there to simplify your life in the kitchen.
4. Smart lighting
Smart lighting is great for saving on electricity costs and for home security. By being able to control your home’s lighting from anywhere, you can turn your lights on or off from anywhere. These lighting options are inexpensive, but effective upgrades.
