Surely, you can imagine where the market is headed. For your property to stand out in this wildly competitive, ever-evolving market, smart technology is a must. The experts at Bravas explain why.

Convenience and Comfort

In today’s fast-paced world, homebuyers desire a sanctuary, not just a place to lay their heads at night. According to a survey conducted by home security provider, ADT, the average homeowner is most interested in smart technologies that make life easier and more comfortable—products like smart thermostats, whole-home AV, and home security cameras, among others. These devices attract buyers because they add both convenience and comfort to the space, allowing for more enjoyment and greater ease of use when enjoying time at home. 

Enhanced Security

Speaking of sanctuary, every homeowner has an innate need for security. A home is an investment, and just as homeowner’s insurance is a necessary protective measure, so should be home security. Smart home security features add tremendous value to a property by providing real-time video, instant updates, and 24/7 monitoring—all from the touch of a button. According to home security giant, iControl Networks, Inc., this added convenience and peace of mind is a coveted home addition for as many as 90 percent of homeowners.

Smart Features Save Money

With the ever-rising cost of energy in the United States, homeowners everywhere are constantly searching for ways to reduce their monthly utility bills. And with the advent of smart home technology, it’s as easy as the touch of a button. Smart thermostats can save homeowners up to 15 percent on annual heating and cooling costs.
