What is a Smart Home?

What is a Smart Home?

Selling Your Home? - Make Your Home Smart!

A Smart Home Is...A home equipped with lighting, heating and electronic devices that can be controlled remotely by phone or computer. You can contact your smart home on the Internet to make sure the dinner is cooked, the central heating is on, the curtains are drawn and the gas fire is on when you get home.

After figuring out what a smart home is my next questions is - Do I Need A Smart Home? The Chart above shares some good information as to why I would want a smart home. The research shows 72% of people with smart home technology feel more secure, 62% feel more connected to their home. Another reason a smart home is a good investment for me is that buyers are now looking for homes with smart technology.

How Do I Begin? To figured this out I turned to the technology leaders at Coldwell Banker and found them in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Consumer Electronics Show. This is a trade show filled with the newest available technology for your smart home. Here is an interview with Jeff Lyman, CMO of Vivint, good conversation about devices, cost effectiveness and new technologies coming soon.
