Turn Your Home Into a Smart Home for Less

Turning your home into a smart home now is more affordable now than it was even a year ago. It can help your home stand out from the others on the block too and be memorable. Millennials and Gen Ys may be the largest groups wanting a home with technology that keeps them secure and connected, but they sure are not the only ones. I mean, just think about it! Baby Boomers are looking for more convenience in their lives too, and that is the generation that invented computers!

Connecting devices to your smart phone can save energy, money, and time. There are four categories of smart devices:

  1. Utilities - Thermostat, light bulbs, sprinkler, electrical outlet, ceiling fan, stove, washer and dryer, powered window shades, etc.

  2. Safety - Wireless key entry, doorbell, garage door, outdoor lighting, etc.

  3. Security - Burglar alarm, smoke alarm, carbon monoxide detector, or any sensor that triggers a call for emergency assistance.

  4. Audio / Visual - Personal assistant such as Alexa or Siri, TVs, music, etc.

With today’s technology available to consumers, it can be pretty easy to get started. Setting your home up with Smart Home devices can be a great marketing tool, and make your home stand out, without too much out of pocket.

You can find compatible smart home devices even at the large box home improvement stores such as Home Depot and Lowes. If you are already invested in Amazon's Alexa or Echo products, you find a plethora of devices on Amazon!
