In this blog, we’ll go over just that – and share how our smart home installation services can help your firm in the DeKalb County area. Just keep reading below to find out more.
The Demand for Smart Homes
In the blog mentioned above, we referenced a 2018 survey from Coldwell Banker Real Estate that asked potential homebuyers about their interest in smart home technologies.
The results were telling: More than 60 percent of all respondents said they would be interested in having some sort of smart technology pre-installed in their home.
This brings us to the all-important question of this blog: Why?
Smart home technologies are designed to add convenience and peace-of-mind to the end user’s lifestyle.
Consider this: What if you’re rushing out the front door so you can arrive at the office or a construction site on time and you forget to lock the door? Well, with a smart lock pre-installed, you can just log onto an application on your smartphone and turn it off remotely.
Or, what if you and your family are out-of-town during the winter and a pipe bursts? Instead of arriving home to the mess, what if you could instantly be alerted via a push alert sent to your smartphone the moment a leak sensor detects an abnormality and you can take proper action?
Or, what if you could manage all of the technologies in your house – from lights to shades to A/V systems to even your home security system and more – all from your smartphone or an in-wall touchscreen panel?
Of course, smart homes also can be environmentally friendly – through the use of LED lighting systems, intelligent thermostats and efficient motorized shades.
Homeowners throughout the state are increasingly becoming aware of these technologies and are beginning to demand them as they seek new homes.
People now more than ever are living connected lifestyles – wanting to stay in-the-loop 24/7. With a smart home, homeowners have that access whenever they crave it, even if they’re vacationing on the other side of the world.
So, how can your firm benefit from this growing demand?
