How smart is your home? In conjunction with CNET, Coldwell Banker recently released an official definition to designate “smart home” status. Earlier this year, research revealed that smart technology is a growing desire, even a priority, among established and prospective homeowners and buyers. Technology-driven homes have long been held as a future ideal – and the future has officially begun.
So, what is a smart home? Obviously, an internet connection is mandated for such technology. Categories of smart technology include lighting, safety, entertainment, appliances, heating/cooling, outdoors, security, and temperature features. Coldwell Banker’s definition of a smart home applies to homes with smart technology in at least 3 of these areas – one of which must be either temperature or security.
