The Bay Area is filled with beautiful properties in stellar locations. Making your properties stand out is a critical component of attracting the right customers who are willing to pay a premium.

What You Need to Consider
Here in the Bay Area, a hub of technology development, we have no shortage of tech-savvy people. Most are quite familiar with home automation technology or already use some form of it; indeed, a lot of it is developed right here. Given our high level of tech awareness, it should surprise no one that smart home technology would be high on the list of features when people are looking to either remodel a home or build a new one.
We also know that there is an ever-growing array of smart consumer devices available for intelligent home control and management. Smart cameras, lights, thermostats, speakers, refrigerators, and more are readily available at local electronics retailers and online. Some of these are designed to work well together, while some will only work within a given ecosystem. Choosing a home automation system might be an exercise in frustration depending upon what you want to do, involving choices in wireless technologies that may or may not work well in a given environment as well as different control mechanisms.
The best home automation installations are a seamless experience. In the tech world, “seamless experience” is a buzzword often bandied about but a goal that's rarely achieved. From our perspective, it means that disparate functions in your home can be made to work as a well-orchestrated whole that fits your lifestyle. To accomplish that seamless experience, the right planning in a new home build or remodel will go a long way to set it up for today's smart home technology as well as tomorrow's.

A Home Automation System Puts You in [Green] Control
In the Bay Area, we’ve always been at the forefront of green technology. Our location in the heart of Silicon Valley certainly has something to do with it. With California now aiming to require all new homes to have solar power, and changes coming to electric rates based on time of day, you may be wondering if it makes sense to invest in solar panels for your home.
With a solar system and a battery, your home could store solar energy and potentially garner significant savings in energy usage by drawing from the electric grid when rates are lower.
How do you do that? A home automation system, like that of our partner Control4, could monitor energy generation, usage, and storage, and can help manage systems in your home for the most efficient consumption.
