Time is not just money, time is actually life. If you lose time, you lose life. We all have busy days! Whether you work, take care of your family or are retired, your day is filled with many little tasks. Lennar takes that into consideration when building new homes. How? Through automation. We already have a very digital and automated life, either using the many apps on our phone, Smart TV or another device. Why not extend this automation to your new home and save valuable hours of your life? Keep reading to understand better the concept of the Everything’s Included® program Lennar offers and how Smart Home tech can help you cut costs.
What is a Smart Home?
A smart home allows owners to control remotely most of the appliances and devices of the residence, which are connected to wifi. All the controlling system runs on a mobile or any other smart device. Through automation, owners may control functions such as security access, temperature, lighting and other automated setups that can even monitor usage to control consumption and save costs.
Is it expensive?
The bad news is that most of these high tech systems are not cheap. Depending on how automated you want your new home to be, you may need to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars. If your goal is to save money by reducing monthly expenses through smart consumption, be aware that it may take a while to have your investment paid back.
But the good news is that Lennar’s new homes come with most of the important features of a Smart Home. You won’t have to pay extra for that. There is no secret here! Lennar is one of the largest developers in the US. They are able to negotiate the purchase of high-tech systems in large quantities and for a much better price. If you try to buy these systems on your own it is going to be a lot more expensive.
Here are three smart home devices that are featured in Lennar homes as part of the Everything’s Included® program:
Hands-free Wi-Fi-connected smart devices placed throughout your home give you the opportunity to always stay connected. Devices like the Echo Show give your family easy access to video calls, security cameras, and the Internet. You can also check the weather, search music, send and receive emails, listen to audiobooks and order-in from your favorite restaurants. Home automation devices that have Amazon’s Alexa built-in can even control lights, switches, locks, and other compatible devices throughout your home. These devices also feature mobile access so you can utilize on-the-go monitoring, anytime anywhere.
Smart Locks and Doorbells
With smart locks, you never have to worry about losing your keys or granting access to your home. These devices are Bluetooth-enabled, so you can easily lock and unlock your door with an authorized phone. You can even set controls allowing entry to specific friends, family members, and guests on particular days and times. Smart doorbells are a great smart home security feature since they include built-in motion sensors, two-way audio, and real-time notification, so you can always see who is at your door from the comfort of your phone, tablet, or smart home hub.
You can also save extra money annually through a Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat. These smart home gadgets adapt to your schedule, helping you conserve energy while your home is empty. Plus, the sleek thermostat interface makes cooling and heating your home easy.
Adding smart home devices into your life can save time, money, and give you peace of mind. That’s why Lennar has launched the first Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Home Design. Learn how you can get a smart home and read about our approach to whole-home connectivity.
