What is Smart Home Ready Technology?

Tech-savvy homebuyers love that the standard package includes a second floor wireless access point pre-wired for robust wifi throughout the home.

Taking Your Smart Home to the Next Level

There are several different upgrades available that will let you customize your home for your family’s needs. Keep reading to learn about some of our favorite features. 

Smartphone Controls

Need to preheat your oven or start your dryer while you are out running errands? There’s an upgrade for that! You’ll be able to control your appliances, lights, garage door, and more with your phone, whether you’re home or not!

Smart Thermostat

As you go about your weekly routine, your smart thermostat will learn your habits and adjust the temperature for not only your comfort, but also with your energy bill in mind. If you’re going out of town and worried about your electricity bill, worry no more. With a smart thermostat, you can tell you’re home you are leaving and it will adjust accordingly, while keeping your wallet in mind! 

Voice Integration

Controlling your home has never been easier. Compatible with smart devices such as Amazon Echo, Google Home, and more, your home will recognize your voice and listen to a list of commands. For instance, you can change the light and audio settings all from the comfort of your couch. If you have several different lights in your kitchen, name your lights for easy distinction. You can even change the thermostat temperature with your voice!

Home Security

Feel secure whether you are home alone for the night or out running errands. With a video doorbell system, you will be able to see who is at the door from the couch, at work, or wherever you are! You can also get alerts when packages are dropped off and have peace of mind they stay there. You can also monitor activity inside and outside your home with a collection of technology, including video cameras and motion detectors.
