A simple read on what is important to USA smart home buyers, although that does not always translate 1:1 to the Australian market (climate, elevation, humidity and product availability all drive needs or wants).
Interesting to compare Channel 9’s #theblock and their smart home installations. I don’t think any of them have looked at atmospherics that much – CO2, fire/smoke – perhaps we are still in the gimmick phase in Australia rather than the practicality phase …..
To get more value out of this article look at it in reverse. Think of you as the buyer of an advertised smart home. Would their rankings work for you?
My bet still is less ROI with smart features than a garden makeover or fresh paint …. every time. A Smart Habitat is about convenience and comfort, not sparkle and pop!
Stay safe. Be Smart!
