How a Smart Home Installation Adds Value to Your Home
Smart Home Tech Will Differentiate Your Home When You Sell
If you’re building or remodeling a house in Florida, you may be considering adding smart home technology. Most recent surveys of new home buyers, whether in Boca Raton or across the country, show that features like lighting control are high on the list of desired amenities. So, if you are looking to add the convenience and luxury of these features, it will be a good investment in the future value of your home.
Let’s explore three areas where a smart home installation adds value to your Boca Raton home.
One of the first areas people focus on is the kitchen. If you are modernizing yours, smart technology will add utility, aesthetics, and value. A kitchen has many types of lighting – from overhead to undercabinet - and those require many switches. You can streamline and beautify your controls with stylish programmable keypads that can manage many lighting loads. These keypads reduce wall clutter and simplify setting the right illumination for any activity, whether you’re cooking, eating dinner or entertaining.
Everyone wants their new home to be more energy-efficient. In South Florida, managing heat is a year-round affair. Motorized shading can manage sunlight streaming into your home more intelligently. Not only can you raise and lower them at the touch of a button, but you can put them under the control of lights sensors or schedules to raise or lower automatically. And that’s not all, as motorized shades can be coordinated with other smart home functions like lighting and climate control. You can tune the system to your preferences to manage comfort, reduce heat gain and HVAC use, and strike a balance between comfort and energy efficiency.
Everyone wants a safer home. Modern, internet-connected security cameras enable you to see what’s happening in and around your property at any time, whether at home or away. Video doorbells let you screen visitors and manage package deliveries, and smart locks can be remotely controlled through your smart home system to let in service people, kids, friends, and deliveries. You can also rest assured knowing that all your doors – including garages – are secured or do so at the touch of a button.
Smarter security extends to other hazards, too. Smart sensors can detect water leaks so that you can take action to minimize damage. Your smart home system can turn off the HVAC system and ceiling fans in the event of smoke to prevent spreading it or fanning a fire.
