Smart home technology has hit the mainstream with services like Google Home, Apple HomeKit, and Amazon Alexa. Today we’re looking at how the smart home trend is showing up in the luxury real estate market. Whether you’re buying, selling, or remodeling luxury real estate in Redland, CA, you’ll benefit from learning what’s happening in the luxury smart home tech space.
What Is Smart Home Technology?
Smart home technology is a broad term, encompassing a wide range of intelligent, internet-connected home devices. Smart devices can be personalized, automated, controlled remotely (via smartphone), and programmed to work in tandem.
Millions of Americans are using some form of smart home tech. Most rely on services from one of the “Big Three” to control it: Amazon, Apple, or Google. These are respectable services, but they have limits. Most users are just running a simple setup involving perhaps automated thermostat and lighting changes.
What About Luxury Smart Home Technology?
The Big Three may be the most recognizable names in smart home, but the luxury real estate market is different. There are so many awesome innovations available for those with a little extra in the bank. Lutron offers advanced lighting control with serious customization. Crestron creates more full-service systems that can control lights, A/V, motorized shades, home security, and more.
On the home entertainment front, don’t settle for a smart TV or speaker. Real luxury looks more like a whole-home media server system from Kaleidescape.
It’s also crucial that all your smart devices work together from one central platform. There are several luxury smart home interfaces that boast this capability, such as Bang & Olufsen’s BeoLink platform.
Smart home tech is a great addition to your Redlands CA luxury real estate property for all sorts of reasons. It can improve your ambiance, save you time, and increase the value of a home you’re looking to sell.
