5 Reasons You Should Be Warming Up To Home Automation Technology

Sometimes when a new trend comes around, it might be wise to follow along without putting all of your eggs in that new trend’s basket. This is especially true with new ground-breaking technologies, as sometimes it is hard to tell if they will stick around longer than a year. However, it might be wiser to do some research on the new trend and the current technology climate, in order to get to know more about the trends, the game-changers, and how to differentiate the two. After doing some of our own research on Home Automation Technology, here are 5 reasons we believe this trend is in fact a game-changer, and is here to stay:

1) Kids are embracing technology at ever younger ages.

So much so, that teachers are now supplied with “skill builders” to stay ahead of the curve (or maybe they’re just trying to keep up). If you have any kids of your own, you too may understand how true this actually is. Check out this video – it’s a perfect example of what we’re talking about. These are the customers of your future, don’t you think they will want a “Smart Home” by the time they are ready to buy? And what about your customers today?  Does your R and D department explore home technologies beyond “lifestyle” options like casitas and master closet placement? Maybe it’s time to think like your inner young person, and embrace your inner child that ooooh’s and ahhhh’s over 21st technology that you never thought possible as a kid.

2) Companies around the world are equipping their offices with automation technology.

You could say that they are preparing for the inevitable — a world where technology is the norm for almost every function, every day. Our advice? Use these new automation technologies and update them regularly, and for goodness sake — lose your dependence on the fax machine! Aren’t you sick of this happening in the office? Needless to say, the change needs to begin at the top of the organization, with upper management leading by example. Provide adequate tools to help folks adjust to change, and more importantly explain why changes in technology are beneficial, to both the organization and the individual.  This is helpful for co-workers, but most of all it greatly benefits the consumer as well, who is probably not interested in living in a new home with outdated technology! The more home automation technologies and options you have available, the more it will show that your company practices what they preach.

3) There is money left on the table, just waiting for someone to grab it.

With new technology comes new opportunity. Jumping on the bandwagon may make you a few extra dollars, but being a pioneer of new technology will make you a game-changer (and many many dollars)! Mastering home automation technology, or any groundbreaking technology for that matter, will place you as a viable and deserving contender of the money left on the table. Once you’ve done your research on the specific technology, taking the risk may bring your company to a different playing field entirely.

4) Continuous learning keeps you young and relevant.

Although it may require you to be comfortable with being uncomfortable for a short while, wouldn’t you agree that learning keeps to you sharp and relevant? Everyone gets uncomfortable when they have to leave their comfort zone. Don’t the be one to rely on TV ads only (when there are so many more current ways to engage with your customer) just because it is what you know. Online engagement with your potential customers, for example, has been proven to help homebuilders understand what is in demand. If you knew what your homebuyers wanted, wouldn’t you do everything to give it to them?

5) Technology provides an enhanced customer experience.

Not only does it include the “ooooh’s” and “ahhhhh’s” we mentioned earlier, but it engages your customer in a way like never before. The options available, the flexibility of choice, and the novelty of customization come together for an amazing customer experience in creating the home they’ve dreamed of. Allowing homebuyers to customize their homes using today’s design technology will bring homebuilders up to par with the other industries that are booming along with online technology. If home automation technology isn’t enough to get you on board, then you might just miss the boat!

Just like the summers in Arizona, you can warm up to new home automation technology!
