Wish you could turn the lights on before the sun goes down?

Want to be able to monitor your home's security system while you are on vacation?

Now you can.

Home technology has vastly improved over the last few years, improving functionality and energy efficiency. But some smart home features carry more value than others. Here are the top features that will not only help you enjoy your home more, but will also make the home more appealing when it’s time to sell.


Nest Thermostat
The Nest Thermostat is controlled with your smart phone, and it learns the schedule of the home's occupants. It automatically adjusts the temperature according to your schedule, which saves on energy costs, since heating and cooling will be reduced when appropriate. The Nest Thermostat has earned glowing reviews it is a great upgrade for your home.


Automatic Lighting
Lighting is an overlooked part of home security—leaving the lights on in the evening can deter burglars, because the lights suggest someone is home. With automatic and smart lighting systems, you can program your lights to come on in the evening, or use your smart phone to turn on the lights before you arrive at home.


Smart Alarms
Gone are the days of controlling your security system just from a panel inside the home. Now there are security systems that you can control from anywhere in the world using your smart phone. You can monitor your home from anywhere, without having to pay a monthly fee to a security company.


Leverage today's technology to make heating, lighting and securing your home easier than ever. When you are ready to sell, these feature upgrades will be a real benefit to future buyers.
