In today’s ever-evolving world, smart home upgrades are becoming increasingly popular. Smart devices can save energy, improve safety, and enhance the value of your property. As an investment property owner, it’s important to stay on top of the latest trends that could add value to your property. Here are some of the best smart devices to consider:


Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats are an excellent way to make your property more energy-efficient. By automatically adjusting the temperature based on occupancy, smart thermostats can help reduce energy costs. They can also be programmed to turn off when your property is vacant, helping to prevent energy waste. 


Smart Lighting

Smart lighting easily adds convenience, ambience, and security to your property. They can be programmed to turn on and off at different times, and can be set up to detect motion. This can be especially helpful for deterring crime and ensuring the property is lit up when tenants come and go. 


Smart Security Systems

Smart security systems are a must for any property. They can detect intruders, alert you to any suspicious activity, and help you keep your property safe and secure. Smart security systems can also be integrated with other smart home devices, allowing you to control them from anywhere.


Smart Plugs

Smart plugs allow you to control the power to anything that plugs into the wall such as lamps, humidifiers, air purifiers, heaters and more! This means you can turn devices on and off remotely, schedule them to turn on and off automatically, and monitor energy usage. Smart plugs are also great for creating a smart home system, as they can be integrated into various home automation systems to control multiple devices at once.


Smart Locks

Smart locks offer a variety of benefits that can make a home more convenient, secure, and energy-efficient. You can also control who has access to your home and when they can enter. Additionally, smart locks allow for keyless entry, eliminating the need for physical keys and the risk of a lost key. They also offer a range of features like automatic locking and unlocking, remote access, and voice activation. They can be programmed to recognize individual fingerprints, making it difficult for someone to break in. Additionally, most smart locks also come with smart alert features, like motion sensors and alarms, that will notify you if someone is trying to tamper with the lock or if there is motion activity near the door.


Smart Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Smart smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are an essential upgrade for any property. They can detect dangerous levels of smoke and carbon monoxide, and alert you so you can take action wherever you are.
