Have you ever gotten an electricity, water or utility bill that seemed way higher than it should be? While rates do fluctuate from year to year, you could be getting a higher bill because of an unknown leak in your pipes or in your appliances. These types of issues are common for new and seasoned homeowners alike, as homes take on the strain of use from year to year.
To keep your home running smoothly and prevent any unnecessarily high bills, consider adding in more smart home tech throughout your home. What was once often thought of as a fad, smart home technology has made owning a home easier than ever before and has proven itself to be a major trend that’s here to stay. In fact, the smart home market will be worth around $159 billion in revenue by 2024.
To understand why this market will explode in recent years, it’s important to get a better grasp on all the benefits of this technology. Not only can smart devices save you money through lower energy bills (and even lower home insurance premiums), but they can help reduce your environmental footprint as well! Talk about a no-brainer, especially when you consider how easy it is to add in many of these items to your home.
Things like water and humidity sensors can alert you to minor leaks and changes in your home’s climate before they create major damage. While other devices like smart locks and motion detectors allow you to secure and monitor your home remotely, leading to greater peace of mind and protection for your belongings.
