Smart Home Upgrades - Coach Realtors

Television used to tell us what a smart home would look like: talking assistants, automatic stoves, voice-operated music, and motion-sensing lighting. While our current homes may not be quite how Hollywood envisioned, many of these items are actually available today to upgrade your smart home environment—and buyers want them.

Our REALTORS® are here to help you discover five smart home updates that can help your home sell in 2020.

  • Video Doorbells
    There are multiple brands of video doorbells on the market now, and these tiny powerhouses of security can often be found on sale or special promotion. These digital doorbell/security systems are in-demand for homebuyers and even considered standard in many markets. A good video doorbell will allow a homeowner to remotely interact with a package person, record and sense motion near your entry day and night, and allow you to view and upload suspicious videos to a cloud community or police report.

  • Smart Light Bulbs
    Smart light bulbs can be installed in most standard lighting around your home and then connected to a phone app or smart assistants like Alexa or Siri. Smart bulbs are in demand for energy savings. Potential homeowners want to program their lighting when away from home or in rooms when they sleep. These high-tech bulbs can change hue for softer or brighter lighting depending on the weather, and many have mood or color settings too.

  • Motorized Blinds or Shades
    This is one of those purchases that can definitely help your home stand out from the crowd. A high tech feel, smart sun protection will definitely create a modern vibe—and this option is energy-saving too. Block the damaging sun from your windows during peak times for high heat or add privacy and insulation during the cold winter evenings. Sometimes smart technology can be both fun and functional.

  • Intelligent Alarms
    Home safety is always a huge selling point. Not only will your potential buyers feel more at ease when making a purchase, but you can showcase the savings they might get in a home insurance policy. Protection systems can link together multiple smart smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to better pinpoint danger situations in your home. Get alerts on your phone even when you aren't around and avoid chirps from low batteries with more courteous digital reminders.

  • Smart Ceiling Fans
    Imagine a ceiling fan that knows when you're sleeping. That's exactly how high-tech some of these devices are, helping to cool your room to optimum white noise or sleeping temperature in your bedroom. A smart ceiling fan will know to increase it's speed if the afternoon heat is affecting things or reduce use without movement for that spare guest room. Your buyers will be wowed by the tech and wooed by the comfort.
