Can you imagine your life pre-Smartphone? I know I can’t. Convenience, comfort and unlimited access to information is in the palm of my hands, and honestly, I don’t know how I lived before I had an iPhone. Sounds dramatic, but it’s true. The technological advances we’ve experienced in the last couple of decades are immeasurably valuable to our current lifestyles. In fact, many of today’s jobs wouldn’t exist without Smartphones, and we simply wouldn’t be where we are today without them.
Now, a new era is unfolding. The era of the Smart Home.
It’s a home designed using the latest technology to fit your lifestyle through convenience, comfort, and security. Many Smart Homes use automated technology to ‘remember’ your living settings, including auto-climate control, home security preferences, cooking habits, and even your favorite toilet settings. Yep- it’s basically like having a butler who knows all of your daily rituals and preferences. Pretty awesome.
While these living luxuries definitely add value to your life, they also increase the value and overall appeal of your home. More families are looking to buy homes with sophisticated home-security systems. According to NeilKelly.com, “One company leading the way in smart technology is Quadrant Homes. The company’s line of HomeSmart™ features are designed to simplify homeowners’ lives with doorbells that allow you to see and speak with visitors at your door from anywhere; garage doors you can open from your smartphone; front door hardware that allows you to lock doors with a smartphone; thermostats that learn your home’s patterns and programs to help you save energy; and lights that can be turned on from anywhere with your smartphone. The possibilities are becoming almost endless.”
In short, if you’re looking to upgrade your home, increase its functionality and minimize the things YOU have to do, you may want to consider Smart Home options.
