In 2023, there are a growing number of smart home devices. Of course, these are handy to have in general, as they help you with your day, can offer you insights into your behaviors, and can also help you save money on your energy bills. In addition, they can also add monetary value to your home. More people will be buying homes looking for the addition of smart devices, as these devices add security and class to any home they’re installed in.
So, if you want to sell your home this year or soon after, here are some devices to install for added value. Enjoy!
Most people have heard of a smart thermostat. A smart, touchscreen thermostat not only allows you to better assess the energy usage in your home but also enables you to minimize the money spent on the energy bills in the property.
Long-term, this not only saves money but can be used to help minimize energy waste which can occur with traditional thermostats that may be heating homes when no one is actually in them. So, if you want to add value to your home, get a smart thermostat.
Almost everyone has heard the chime of the Ring doorbell. Of course, there’s far more to this doorbell than the chime.
All video doorbells provide your home with 24-hour surveillance, without the bulk or installation that comes with a CCTV camera, and can connect to your smartphone so you can answer the doorbell even when you’re not at home. This is great for home security, easy to fit, and has a minimalist design.
Much like the video or smart doorbell, smart lighting systems allow you to control your home’s lights remotely. You can also schedule lighting effects, adjust brightness, and change the color temperature to suit different moods or activities in the home. All of this is possible without a dimmer switch.
Smart lights can also be used with voice assistants for hands-free control. That means if you’ve had a hard day, you won’t have to get up to turn the light off.
Remember the home security systems with access codes? Picture it, then add some AI technology, and you have a smart lock. With a smart lock, you and your family can remotely control and monitor the home’s door locks to ensure they’re not being tampered with and are still there. Yes, some burglars will remove locks days before a break-in!
These locks also enable keyless entry, temporary access codes for guests, and activity logs to track who enters and exits the residence. The latter is great if you have people coming in and out of the property while you’re at work, such as dog walkers or home helpers.
This locking system is a valuable addition to the home. It provides peace of mind and ensures that the perimeter is secure.
