The Top Smart Home Technologies Buyers Want

Research has shown that homebuyers are more interested in homes with smart features and technology than they were just two to five years ago. It is thought that many homebuyers will consider smart home features standard within the next three to seven years…

…but which smart home technologies are buyers really looking for?

A secure home – smart technology can combine with existing components around your home to provide a comprehensive smart alarm system, without the expensive set up costs. Allowing you to monitor, alarm and defend you home all via a single integrated security system.

Energy and cost saving potential will also make a buyer’s ears perk up according to estate agent research. A smart home helps you identify energy saving potential, disable devices you have left on standby and optimise your use of solar power.



Investing in an automated lighting system makes a positive contribution to your home security and could increase its desirability to potential buyers; imagine never coming home to a dark house again! Lighting scenes also provide the means of showcasing your home at its best for potential buyers, with lighting for every occasion
and mood.

Smart home entertainment and lifestyle features are becoming the expected amongst the ‘Generation X’ house buyers, the top adopters of smart home technology according to Coldwell Banker.
