Client Appreciation Smart Home Info

As demand for smart technologies have increased so has the demand for a “smart home". Coldwell Banker has teamed up with technology juggernaut CNET to create a smart home definition that is easy to understand and representative of the best smart home technology.

Smart Home Defined.

 "A smart home is a home that is equipped with network-connected products (aka "smart products," connected via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or similar protocols) for controlling, automating and optimizing functions such as temperature, lighting, security, safety or entertainment, either remotely by a phone, tablet, computer or a separate system within the home itself."

Smart Homes Features.

The property must have a smart security feature that either controls access or monitors the property or a smart temperature feature, in addition to a reliable internet connection.  It must also include at least two additional features from this list:

  • Lighting (smart light bulbs and lighting systems)
  • Safety (smart fire/carbon monoxide detectors and nightlights)
  • Entertainment (smart TVs and TV streaming services)
  • Appliances (smart refrigerators and smart washer/dryers)
  • Heating/Cooling (smart HVAC system, smart fans or vents)
  • Outdoors (smart plant sensors and watering systems)
  • Security (smart locks, smart alarm systems or cameras)
  • Temperature (smart thermostats)
