Does Smart Home Automation Increase Resale Value?

Home automation has the potential to simplify our lives. No wonder smart homes are gaining popularity. There are many benefits to home automation. In addition to maximizing home security and making your home more energy efficient, it can also increase home value.

Studies show that the average home automation system can increase the resale value of the home by 5-8%. Here are some home automation features that we commonly install for homeowners in Calistoga and Sonoma County.

Smart Hub

A smart hub connects smart devices on a home automation network and allows them to communicate effectively with each other. The smart home hub centralizes home automation so you can manage all your devices using an app.

Millennials make up the largest share of homebuyers. They understand and are comfortable with technology. Setting up a smart hub is a great way to make your property more attractive to millennial homebuyers. A home automation installation service serving Calistoga can help you choose the right smart hub for your home and install it

Smart Lighting

A smart lighting system allows you to schedule your smart lights to turn on and off at specific times. You can also schedule your smart lights to dim to a certain setting at specific times of the day to save electricity or create a unique vibe. When you host an open house, highlight your low utility costs and compare your electricity bill with that of your neighbors who own similar houses.

Smart Door Locks

A smart door lock eliminates the need for a spare key. Forgot to close your door equipped with a smart lock before leaving for work? No worries! You can lock or unlock it remotely. You can program your smart locks to give family members, trusted workers and guests special access to your property. Home security concerns are on the rise. Equipping your doors with smart door locks is a great way to make your property stand out in a seller’s market.

Smart Smoke Detectors

In a 2018 survey, almost 75% of homebuyers said they’d prefer a home with pre-installed smart smoke detectors. A smart smoke detector can help prevent house fires by sending alerts to the owner’s smartphones or tablets if anything is amiss.

Regular smoke detectors go off every time they detect smoke, even if it is from burnt toast, which can be frustrating and annoying. Smart home detectors are equipped with advanced sensors and can distinguish between shower steam, cooking fumes and smoke from fires. They can help reduce false alarms.

Smart Speakers

You can schedule your smart speakers to play your favorite music to elevate your mood during certain times of the day, for example, in the morning after getting out of bed and in the evening, when you return from work. Explain to potential homebuyers how they can use smart speakers to make their day more bearable.
