What do Millennials Look For When Buying A House

Here are top examples of smart home technologies that millennials look for in a home:

  • Smart, high-fidelity sound systems

    Music is a crucial element in young people’s lives – whether purely for entertainment or as a means to zone in on that creative, productive flow. Sound systems for the home are nothing new, but modern advancements in audio technologies are extending ways for home users to access their music, not to mention enjoy them with a richer quality.Today’s Wi-Fi-connected sound systems allow users to control their playlists from a central device – like their cell phone, tablet, or laptop – and stream their music across the house.

  • Smart thermostats

    Programmable thermostats have been around since around the 1950s, but today’s smart thermostats take convenience a notch higher with sensor-activated functions and “adaptive” abilities.Smart thermostats can “learn” your temperature preferences based on how you use your heating and AC systems over time and, using sensors to detect whether you are at home or away, will adjust your home’s temperature accordingly.

  • Smart smoke detectors

    Have you ever had to deactivate your old-school smoke alarm because it goes off while you’re cooking? With advanced versions, this is not a problem.Modern smoke detectors are “smart” enough to tell the difference between smoke coming from frying bacon and smoke from an actual fire. Plus, they can monitor carbon dioxide levels and overall air quality inside your home, as well as send alerts straight to your mobile phone or tablet in case of a legitimate emergency while you’re away.

  • Smart doors and locks

    Let’s face it: keys are a hassle. They’re easy to lose, hard to find – say, in the dark, or at the bottom of your bag – and they are a huge risk in the wrong hands. Your phone, however? You practically protect it with your life, right? That’s the idea behind smart doors. All you need to lock and unlock your home is an app on the phone or tablet that you always carry around with you. You can also configure additional user access to authorize family members and friends to do the same using their mobile devices.
