Did you know that millennials represent roughly a quarter of the entire population, with $1.3 trillion in annual buying power? More importantly, did you also know that 86 percent of millennials are willing to pay more for a home or rental property if it has smart home technology?
The question is, are YOU ready? How do you respond when clients say they want to control their lighting and small appliances through a smartphone or tablet? After all, they can improve home safety and security by turning lights on/off at scheduled times, like the front porch light on at 7 p.m. and off at 7 a.m. Automating a home can mean less stress and worry for your clients.
When a client asks about home automation, the first thing you should say is “Sure, we can do that.” Leviton® offers a full Decora Smart™ line of dimmers, switches and outlets that offer safety, comfort and convenience through easy-to-use apps available on iOS or Android. Fantastic, right? We also understand that it can be daunting to figure out the right product for a particular client’s needs.
Controlling lights with Decora Smart™ products is easy. The trick is figuring out which system—Z-Wave, Wi-Fi or Apple Homekit™—is right for a particular client. Luckily, we have a cheat sheet to help.
