A Tech Savvy Home

Home trends are starting to emphasize technology more and more–everything can be automated. Following this trend will not only simplify your life, but will also increase the resale value of your home.

The 2013 Better Homes and Gardens real estate survey found that 77% of Millennials want a home with technology capabilities. While the Millennials are the ones after technology, it is important to remember that in ten years, they will represent 75% of the work force. That’s a lot of buying power!

You can get a jump on technology by contacting your remodeling contractor to discuss the best options for your home and lifestyle. Here are some of the available features:

Smart Thermostat

This feature learns your usage patterns and your weekly schedule. The program will automatically adjust your thermostat accordingly, which can cut down energy usage by about 20%.

Notifications

This feature is particularly helpful with a family. The program will monitor your home alarm system and your doors. This means you will receive texts if an alarm goes off and also when your kids come home from school.

Compatibility

When purchasing automated systems for your home, ask about their compatibility. Many will integrate with popular applications like ITunes and Windows Media Center to help you create an ambiance throughout your home.
