The Jetsons have always been an inspiration to homebuilders, homebuyers, and technology enthusiasts alike. With tech becoming more affordable and accessible, it makes sense to include it as part of a home's design.

A home automation system can give homeowners a lot of flexibility and control over things like lighting, comfort, entertainment, and home security. If you are shopping for a new construction home, and you want innovative features included from the get-go, we're the homebuilder for you! 

In this blog, we'll share some of the exciting smart features new homebuyers can look forward to in a Gemcraft home.

What is a smart home?

A smart home is made up of technology that enables you to automate certain household activities. An app on your smartphone or tablet, or a control panel right within your home, might let you turn on lights, change the temperature of your home's climate system, and even lock the doors.

Some smart home systems allow homeowners to monitor things like home security through cameras or sensors that tell you if anything is amiss at home when nobody is there.

Benefits of Owning A Smart Home

You might not even realize how many manual tasks you do every day around your home — a smart home can eliminate those by automating them.

Not having to come home and switch on the light so you don't trip over anything, or turn up the heat because it's cold outside; that's living at its best!

Besides the luxury of convenience and comfort, smart homes save you money on your monthly utilities and reduce your carbon footprint overall. It saves money by automating functions like regulating the heating-cooling cycle based on factors like time of day or outdoor weather conditions.

Not only that, but homebuyers are beginning to expect these smart home systems in all new construction homes. It's becoming part of the standard home buying criteria of the future! So having these upgrades built-in increases your resale value.
