Smart Home Remodeling Top Smart Devices to Add to Your Home Renovation – part one
More homeowners are adding smart technology to their home remodel plans, according to findings by Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies. What’s driving this trend? Probably the ease and convenience. Smart devices provide centralized, remote access which can save money, prevent property damage and increase home security.
These devices also offer a lot of value to elderly homeowners who want to age in place. According to the Hartford Center for Mature Market Excellence and the MIT AgeLab, 51 percent of homeowners ages 50 and up have smart technology in their home or want to get it.
For this reason, we’ve created a list of our favorite smart home gadgets which can easily be implemented during home renovation.
Products by Ring and the Nest Hello Doorbell are at the top of the food chain when it comes to smart doorbells. Unfortunately, package theft is prevalent, and homes are no longer secure with just a deadbolt. These smart doorbells help you know who’s at your doorstep before opening the door.
When motion is detected, the Ring doorbell notifies residents and begins recording. Homeowners can choose from several versions and specs, including wireless or wired.
The Nest Hello is available for a slightly higher price point than Ring products. The Hello distinction is 24/7 recording, facial recognition, and 4-D streaming. The camera also provides wider and taller visual capability than its competition.
There are many smart thermostats on the market. The most popular are developed by Nest and Ecobee. These devices allow the user to control the temperature of their home remotely. If you forgot to turn the air conditioner off before leaving the house, you can easily do so from your phone, saving energy and money.
