Advanced technology is all around us, making life more convenient than ever before. As such, many young homebuyers are actively searching for homes that feature smart home devices. From the kitchen to the laundry room and every room in between, these smart home trends are ones you may want to consider adding if you’re putting your home on the market.
Kitchen Smart Home Technology
Many opportunities exist to add smart home technology in the kitchen. For example, Juno’s Thermo Electric Beverage Cooler gives users the ability to cool a beverage in under two minutes. Much like a microwave, you simply pop the drink inside, close the door, push a few buttons, and voila! A cool beverage!
The U by Moen Smart Faucet is another great invention. Using Alexa control, this faucet delivers precise amounts of water at exactly the temperature you want.
Family Room Technology
TVs have come a long way since their inception. These days, they are bigger, slimmer, and much sharper than ever before. Samsung’s Sero TV, for example, flips horizontal and vertical (much like a smartphone) to allow users to display a wide array of images and videos.
Another advancement in TV technology is LG’s roll-up TV that gives users the extra living space they need while still enjoying all that a large TV has to offer.
Home Security Technology
Home security is important to everyone, and with today’s advancements in technology, home is more secure than it’s ever been.
Homebuyers will be impressed to see any of these home security systems.
- The Benjilock by Hampton Livia – smart lock with keypad, app, thumbprint, and key access
- Locky Vision – a lock and video doorbell system
- Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight – bright lights for better surveillance
- ADT’s Blue Security System
Laundry Room Smart Technology
Anything that makes laundry less daunting is a winner, which is why homebuyers love LG’s TninQ washing machine. Designed with Alexa and mobile app controls, this advanced washing machine detects fabric types, as well as the volume and weight of loads to deliver the perfect wash cycle for that particular combination. It also dispenses detergent automatically and notifies you with updates via your smartphone or Alexa.
Bathroom Smart Devices
The bathroom is another room with many opportunities to use smart home technology. Amid the plethora of smart mirrors and makeup tech is the Kohler Moxie Showerhead and Smart Speaker. This fun showerhead/speaker combo connects wireless to any Bluetooth player up to 33 feet away, allowing you to listen to your favorite music while in the shower.
Smart Home Pet Care
No smart home is complete without some sort of pet care system. One of the newest and most advanced pet care systems on the market today is one that works via your TV to train your pet. The Go Dogo entertains your pet via your TV with training instructions. A built-in camera detects when your pet obeys the commands and dispenses treats as a reward.
The smart devices listed above are just a few of the more popular on the market right now. If you are selling your home, it pays to consider making these upgrades as homebuyers are actively searching for these modern conveniences.
