Smart Home Features

When a buyer is purchasing luxury real estate as an investment, vacation destination, or second home, they want to make sure that their investment is protected. The most popular smart home features, like security, lighting control, smart thermostats, and smart locks can make it easier to keep your property safe. Our Estate Agents know the smart home features buyers want, and we've got the expert tips on smart devices to consider for your luxury home.

5 Smart Home Features for Your Luxury Home

  1. Smart Security System for Home Safety
    If you're looking for a leg up when competing with other high-end Boca Raton luxury homes for sale, then a smart security system is the perfect place to start. A smart security system allows you to keep an eye on the home from anywhere, with window sensors, door sensors, cameras, and motion detectors that cover every inch of the home. There are a wide variety of smart security systems available, including some that integrate many of the other smart systems we'll cover on the list. You can also consider additional security systems, like smart locks where your smartphone doubles as your key.

  2. Make Climate Control a Breeze with a Smart Thermostat
    Whether you're managing an investment, keeping an eye on your second home, or want your current home to be the right temperature, a smart thermostat is key. Smart thermostats allow you to control the temperature of your home from anywhere. The best models can even learn your daily schedule so that the home is always the right temperature.

  3. Smart Lighting for Security and Convenience
    We all know that a home that looks occupied is a less appealing target for would-be thieves. Keeping the lights on is the easiest way to make an empty home look occupied. Smart lighting adds an extra layer of security to the property, allowing you to control lighting from anywhere and make the home appear occupied when nobody's there. Make your first home look occupied even when you're out of town, or keep investment properties safe, secure, and well-lit from a distance.

  4. Simplify Cooking and Kitchen Maintenance with Smart Appliances
    While smart home tools related to security tend to rank near the top of the list for buyers, smart devices that make life more enjoyable around the home rank a close second. Smart appliances are a great place to start because every buyer wants an attractive, efficient, luxurious kitchen. Smart appliances provide online connectivity, make it easier to keep up with maintenance, handle key tasks automatically, and often use less energy. If you're looking for a smart device that will enhance the appeal of your kitchen, then a smart fridge is often the perfect place to start.

  5. Smart Entertainment Devices Attract Younger Buyers
    While not a necessity, stereo systems can be the icing on the cake for attracting younger buyers interested in luxury homes. These devices make it easier to enjoy leisure time, thanks to extensive streaming options and online connectivity.

Whether you're buying or selling high-end real estate, our experienced team has the knowledge and resources to help you close the deal. Contact us to sell or buy Boca Raton luxury homes for sale.

Smart home technology has the ability to take luxury living to a whole new level. Jaw-dropping features and the ultimate in convenience are available at the press of a button — or simply the sound of your voice. Discover some of the latest devices in modern home technology, many of which you may be aware of, and some of which are new to the market. Make your estate more sophisticated and sleek with one of these state-of-the-art upgrades.  

Robotic Vacuum Cleaner

Every smart home needs a robot — a vacuuming robot, that is. iRobot Roomba 980 gives you clean floors throughout your entire home at the push of a button. It seamlessly navigates an entire level, keeping track of its location with its advanced sensors. It will even recharge itself as needed. And of course, you may manage your robotic vacuum using the iRobot HOME app so you can easily schedule your cleaning on the go.  

Television Disguised as a Painting

Disguise a blank television screen when it is not in use with the Artscreen System from Vutec. Inside a beautiful frame, the artwork ascends or descends with the touch of a remote to reveal your television. When the screen is not in use, a museum-quality piece of art is displayed within the frame. Choose from a variety of frame styles, sizes, liners, and artwork choices to find the style that fits your decor. You may even display personalized art, custom artwork or personal photographs to create a more custom Artscreen.  

Voice-Controlled Motorized Blinds

Save time and energy with the ultra-convenient, sleek and quiet Serena® Shades, which operate by remote or with the sound of your voice via the Lutron Smart Bridge. You may schedule the blinds to adjust automatically at certain times during the day, or manage them from anywhere in the world through the Lutron app on your smartphone. These attractive motorized shades are battery-powered, which means they are extremely low-maintenance, reliable and wire-free. Imagine effortlessly letting in bright beams of sunshine throughout your entire home before you even get out of bed in the morning.  

Ultra-Modern Outdoor Security Camera

There are a number of security systems available on the market, but the Presence Security Camera is one of the best. You may instantly access real-time footage of your property on your phone, and Presence is even able to differentiate between a car, person or animal entering the premises. This elegant and modern aluminum camera installs as an outdoor light and produces excellent high-definition video footage to keep your property safe at all times — day or night.  

Transparent Television Screen

Keep an eye out for one of the latest developments in home technology to become widely accessible in the near future. Panasonic recently created a transparent television screen, which appears to be a clear piece of glass until it miraculously turns into a high-definition television with the push of a button or the wave of a hand. Imagine the surprise of guests when a colorful screen appears out of thin air at your next gathering.  

Lock Activated By Smart Phone

This techy August Smart Lock adds convenience for you and your family as your smartphones become a smart key to enter your home. But it adds a touch of sophistication and security when welcoming guests into your property as you can create virtual keys for guests and keep track of who comes and goes. Plus, the door automatically locks behind you for added security, and you can lock and unlock your door (or check its status) from anywhere on your smartphone or Apple Watch.  

Thermostat That Studies Your Habits

The Nest Learning Thermostat is one of the more impressive thermostat systems out there. This third-generation model learns what temperatures you like and builds a schedule around your preferences. You can even adjust your home's temperature from afar on the Nest app. Since 2011, the Nest Thermostat has saved over 8 billion kWh of energy in millions of homes worldwide.
