As we talked about in last month’s blog post, potential homebuyers are actively seeking homes with smart home technology. In fact, around 50 percent of consumers state that home automation products will be an important feature they look for in their next home purchase. Because of this, it’s not surprising that homebuilders are now fully embracing smart home technology and actively looking for ways to incorporate it in their new homes.
Why Builders Need to Implement Home Automation Products
Statistics show that there are currently 37.5 million smart homes in the United States, and this number is expected to continue rapidly rising. As more and more consumers seek homes with this technology, homebuilders are feeling the pressure to give homebuyers what they want.
Luckily, it’s easier and more economical that ever to create a smart home. Plus, the best time to install smart home products is often during the construction process. There are experts available to install the technology, which ultimately saves contractors and builders both time and money.
Homebuilders should start by looking for products that offer convenience, security, energy monitoring and/or energy efficiency. A good place to start is with these smart home products:
- Smart Thermostats
- Smart Door Locks
- Smart Security Systems
- Smart Doorbell Cameras
- Smart Smoke and Leak Detectors
- Smart Irrigation Systems
