Let’s face it, moving is always a challenge which consumes a lot of time and energy. But, what if your next removal will be to a smart home? It sounds exciting, isn’t it? Sit down, make yourself a cup of tea and let us tell you a story about smart apartments.
Your phone is smart, your friends are smart and your home can be smart too! Smart houses are secure, environmentally friendly, convenient and can save your money. No wonder that they’re becoming more and more popular. Going with the times, we prepare a short overview of smart homes putting an impact on things you should know before moving there.
A Smart Home Can Improve Your Life
There’re a lot of factors that speak for moving to a smart home. First of all, an increased security for you, your family and your property. One of the features you can find in smart apartments is a comprehensive home security plan. The most popular options are remote locking, tracking who enter and leave the property and temporary codes for guests. A good idea is also to integrate locks with lights or security cameras. What’s more, you can install also a door and windows sensors and control them using your smartphone. Secondly, lower electricity bills. In traditional houses, utility bills can be extremely high. In a smart apartment, you can reduce the wastage of energy by minimizing your monthly bills. When there is no one home, the smart technology will turn off any lights and household appliances (TV, radio etc.), that are on. Thirdly, easier and more convenient life. In ordinary houses, you have to move from one place to another to turn on lights or close the door. In smart homes, you can do it laying on your bed or sitting on the chair. Last but not least, environmentally friendly technology. Are you a nature-lover who wants to keep it clean and untouched? If yes, a smart home is a perfect solution! For example, smart thermostats have a big energy-saving potential – you don’t have to heat /cool the empty house all day to maintain a comfortable temperature. The newest thermostats can learn their owner and can give you tips on how to save more energy.
Buying a Smart Home
Changing home from an ordinary to a smart one is a good idea not only for people who love technology but also for the elderly and disabled ones. Smart appliances can make their lives more convenient for helping the residents to do daily stuff without bigger effort. For instance, you can teach the connected devices to work together and react to your routines. Lights can turn on when you are inside and even follow your move. A smart refrigerator is connected to the internet and have the ability to interact with a smartphone or a tablet when you’re away from home. Using the touchscreen interface, you can look up recipes (the refrigerator can even read the steps loud while you’re cooking), create a grocery list, receive notification when the expiry date of your food is coming or create an individual profile for each member of your family. What’s more, if you forget your house keys, it won’t be a problem. You can use your smartphone to unlock the door automatically as you near the house. Additionally, selling a smart home should be easier than getting rid of the traditional one. A smart technology can increase the apartment’s value while selling, not to mention the comfort of living of future residents.
