A smart home is more than a collection of smart devices, and it’s more than a “connected” home. One could live in a house with many smart devices that are connected to the Internet, but that wouldn’t make the home a smart home. If those devices are connected to each other and working in concert to automate a number of the home’s processes, we’re getting closer to a definition of smart home most people can agree with.
These devices are gaining popularity. But, there are a lot of issues as a REALTOR® you need to be aware of regarding smart home devices – especially, in educating your buyer for after they bought the house.
