Turn Your Home into a Smart Home for Pennies

Turning your home into a smart home will make your home stand out from the other homes for sale. It will be more memorable. It's not just the millennials and Gen Ys that are the largest groups wanting a home with smart home technology that keeps them secure and connected, but even Baby Boomers look for more convenience in their lives and they know how to use it! Remember, this is the generation that invented the home computer!

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 and inexpensive to get started. Setting your home up with Smart Home devices can be a great marketing tool, and make your home memorable, without too much out of pocket.

Compatible smart devices have become very affordable and are easily installed. You can go to the big box home improvement stores such as Lowe's or Home Depot, and find a variety of devices to equip your home. If you are invested in the Alexa series, Amazon has a plethora of compatible devices at budget prices.
