The ROI on Integrating Home Networks during Construction
Savvy architects and builders recognize that if you want to beat the competition, you have to give homeowners what they want. It turns out that homeowners want smart technology. Take a look at some of these statistics to get a grasp of the connected home situation:
- 45 percent of homeowners are installing smart systems or devices during their renovation projects (Houzz Smart Home Trends Study, 2016)
- 30 million U.S. households planned to add smart home technology in the next 12 months (The Safe and Smart Home Study, 2016)
- One in 10 households currently has smart technology (Gartner Survey, 2016)
- Connected homes have grown year over year, from 17 million in 2015 to 29 million in 2017 (McKinsey Connected Homes Study)
The demand is clearly there, and it’s not limiting itself to renovations either. When people buy new homes, they want those homes to be ready for smart technology. That leads us to the trend that builders and architects throughout the San Francisco, California area are rapidly adopting: home network prewiring.
