What is Smart Home Technology?
A smart home allows homeowners to control certain items in their homes such as lights, thermostats, and other devices remotely using a smartphone or tablet. Smart home technology provides homeowners with conveniences of everyday life with added cost savings.
Is Smart Home Technology Worth It?
Yes! The convenience and safety that automated systems can provide make them well worth the trade off. The home automation system will monitor and/or control a number of energy savings over time. Furthermore, the home resale value is also going to have a major impact on potential buyers interested in a home’s potential.
