Control4 Smart Home Security Delivers True Peace of Mind
Everyone wants to feel safe in their homes. A recent survey by real estate firm Coldwell Banker revealed that homebuyers were highly interested in smart security features. 70% of respondents said they wanted smart fire and carbon monoxide detectors in their next home. Over 60% of the people surveyed were found to be interested in having smart locks, smart lighting, and smart surveillance cameras installed before they moved in.
This kind of data would indicate that homeowners are motivated to use newer technology to keep tabs on their homes and make sure that their homes, possessions, and loved ones are safe. So, if that old-style alarm system with the timed beeps for arming, the inconvenient control pads, and the sensors that inadvertently go off at random aren’t going to cut it, what are consumers looking for?
