With companies pushing for new “Smart” home technologies the question becomes, why do we really need it? Are these companies doing all they can to really educate the consumer on all the new products? Apparently, the shift in 2017 will be a push to educate the consumer as to how and why we really need these products in our homes. However, is a “Smart Home” a selling point when it comes to buying a new home?
In my opinion the shift in technology can mean safer homes! We have the ability to install smart thermostats and smoke detectors, smart locking systems, video doorbells, and even personal assistants such as Amazon’s Alexa. The value of these helpers could mean big savings in the long run.
