A Home Builder's Guide to Home Automation

The release date:2020/12/23 0:00:00



Smart home technology istransforming the way we live, work, and rest in our homes. Even just a fewyears ago, it would be unthinkable to open a door, dim down the lights, turn onthe TV with your smartphone, or even with your voice.


Smart home features make our homes more livable and more convenient. However, as a home builder, you would be happy to know that home automation technology also adds some serious value to a property. In fact, a house's value can increase by up to 5% with home automation, according to industry analysis from Consumer Reports. For example, you would be able to earn $15,000 more on a $300,000 house.




How Big is the Need for Home Automation?

The demand for smart homes is growing among many home buyers worldwide, especially in the United States, China, and Western Europe. Talking about industry growth, here's a list of the main data showing why home automation is a truly worthwhile investment for any future home:


1.The global smart home market revenue is foreseen to reach a value of more than US$141 billion by 2023;

2.Household penetration has reached 10.6% in 2020 and is forecast to reach 21.4% by 2025;

3.Most revenue is generated in the United States, with US$23.328 million in 2020;

4.The average revenue per installed smart home is expected to amount to US$349.02;

5.The number of smart homes worldwide is predicted to jump from 140.92 million in 2017 to a staggering 482.81 million in 2025 (Statista);


We at HDL Automation are committed to always releasing new and better smart home solutions. We're excited to notice how home technology is becoming more accessible than ever before. This trend has already dramatically increased the public's awareness of what is possible with a smart home.


With the plug-and-play simplicity of many of today's smart home gadgets, home automation is not perceived as overly complicated and expensive as it was only a generation ago.



More Homeowners are Looking for Smarter Homes

Smart home technology goes beyond buying a digital assistant like Amazon's Alexa or Google Home. It spans from video doorbells, thermostats to smart door locks and light switches. The list can be expanded with smart sensors, garage door openers, and many more. All these devices and appliances should be controlled by a smart controller, which operates as a leader of a smart home.


Here are some of the most commonly perceived benefits of home automation:

1.Making homes more convenient for owners

2.Making homes safer

3.Making homes more eco-friendly

4.Increasing home price and value

5.Making homes more luxurious

6.Differentiating new homes from older houses


Home automation is truly a blessing for higher convenience, security, and efficiency. While its potential is crystal clear, you should also make sure that the technology you pick - with the help of a smart home professional - meets the homeowners' real-world needs without overwhelming them. You might not want to scare them with the power of technology and how it's going to change their lives radically. It's better to use a more down-to-earth approach to how home automation can provide simple solutions to real-world problems.


Imagine, for example, checking who entered your home at any time from anywhere. Or switching on the smart thermostat on a rainy day right before you arrive back home. Or, again, when you can turn on the TV and your bedroom lights with a gesture or your voice.



Smart All Over, Smart for Longer

One of the main advantages of home automation is that it's not a closed-source infrastructure. It resembles more a puzzle made of pieces added according to the owner's needs, lifestyle choices, and budget.


You can put in the basics of a smart home without breaking the bank. This foundational system can then be expanded as new technologies and needs emerge. As a builder, this also creates new opportunities to earn more money with future upgrades and further options.


What you decide on today is going to be outdated in three years, regardless. So it's important to pick a home automation partner who's on the same page and help you update your smart home solution in the future.


Smart home tech used to be perceived as too expensive for the average home buyer. However, now things have changed. It's already a must-have amenity for any new property. Homebuyers expect that their new house will have some kind of smart capabilities. They see it as the norm, not as the exception.


Nowadays, we take for granted that a new car would have Bluetooth or power windows. The same is true for smart home technology, which has been introduced en masse to the masses and shows all public signs wanting more.



Conclusion

As smart home technology becomes more widespread, more homeowners expect some automation levels in their new or renovated homes. For this reason - and more - smart device connectivity has become an affordable and expected standard for new-home construction.


While finding a smart home professional is not hard, finding a good one is. The best smart home partners are the ones that will meet with your buyers to discuss the technology. At any time during the construction and sale process, they will be by your side to present and talk over the best solutions for a specific property.


You might want to find a smart home professional who can talk about all the components they can bring to enhance the home way better than you can. Someone knowledgeable and adaptable to all the changes that might occur during your new home construction process. In other words, someone with whom you can work well directly.


We at HDL Automation have partners located across 47 countries all over the world. They represent our smart home solutions, but they are also familiar with your target audience's needs to a country level.
