When you combine smart phones and smart home technology, you gain broad control of your home and its devices from anywhere. Locking your doors, viewing your home via video, turning on the lights and resetting the temperature on the thermostat are just a few of the functions you can control from your phone. Here are three reasons why you should incorporate smart home technology into your home.
Upgrades such as a doorbell camera, smart fire alarms, and smart locks can improve your home security to keep you and your family safe. If you have a vacation home or rent a property through vacation rental programs, these smart home features can also help you manage your properties and protect your investment without having to physically travel to the property as frequently.
Some smart home features, such as thermostat and light controls are both convenient and money savers. Use your smartphone to adjust your home’s temperature while you’re away or program the thermostat to kick on at a certain time each day. You can also use smart lights to turn off lights you left on or to light up the home before you arrive.
There may come a time when you’re ready to sell your current home. When that day comes, your home will be more attractive to many buyers if you already have smart home features in place.
