A few easy do-it-yourself technology upgrades to your home or condo will make it much more attractive to a prospective buyer, and provide a layer of safety and comfort for you.
Smart thermostats such as Nest can be custom programmed to turn on and off based on weather conditions and your personal preferences. In addition, the thermostat can be controlled remotely from anywhere in the world through your wi-fi enabled phone or tablet. Reduced energy costs, and home safety (no more frozen pipes) are other benefits.
Smart home locks such as this Schlage version allow you to open and close your lock or deadbolt from anywhere. This can make it convenient to provide access to couriers, service people, delivery companies (no more stolen packages) or houseguests in your absence. An added convenience is the keypad entry, eliminating the need for keys, and allowing you to provide unique traceable codes to individual users.
Wi-fi enabled cameras have become ubiquitous, and add yet another layer of safety and security to a home. A smart doorbell like this one offered by Ring allows you to see who’s at your door from anywhere. In addition, you can communicate with anyone that rings your doorbell through your smart phone.
