We’ve heard a lot of buzz about the internet of things, and how it is going to make our homes smarter. There are a lot of cool developments going on out there, with companies making everything from smart refrigerators to smart carpets (yes, smart carpets). Of course, these things are cool, but for now, they are more of a novelty than a necessity. Many people use this as an excuse to laugh at the Smart Home industry, saying things like “it’s an overpriced fad.” We wouldn’t blame you for thinking that, but it couldn’t be further than the truth.
Studies show that homeowners should expect to pay 1-4% of their home’s value annually on maintenance and repairs. If you have a $200,000 home, that is between $2,000 and $12,000 each year, and these prices are only rising! What if there was a way you could affordably make your own Smart Home that could actually make your life easier and save you money on repairs? Now that would be smart. Luckily, that’s where we come in.
