Is Your Home A Smart Home?

We talk about a long-lasting home and future-proofing your home in our last posts.

There are 5 features to future-proof your home as described in Future Home Design, a homeowner’s resource book.

We call it SMALL; Smart, Millennial, Adaptable, Livable and Low Energy Consumption.

Let’s look at feature #1 Smart. What is a smart home?

A smart home will allow you to integrate technology and automation into your home to save time.

If you are a young family, you are always in a hurry every morning for school drop-off and work.

Locking all the doors, turning off the lights, heating and cooling before you leave home is a pain 😅 Plus, there will always be that thought “Have I locked the door?” or “Did I turn off the heater?”

How much easier your life will be if you just need to press one button before you leave home? How much time saving will that be?

This feature will also benefit seniors who want to have a low-maintenance and safe home to grow old in. Anyone who appreciates time-saving and convenience would benefit from a smart home.

If you are a smart home homeowner, share your thoughts on what you love and benefit from your smart home.
