Luxury Home Buyers Will Soon Expect Automation Technology in their Homes

October 27th, 2007 · 2 Comments

One of the biggest trends in luxury homes these days is home automation and Crestron is the leader in this technology.

Home automation systems allow home owners to control the lighting, climate, audio distribution, home theater, security, and intercoms from a single touch pad or from a remote location.

Imagine unlocking your front door for a relative that decided to visit when you’re out of town or having the lights turn on in a sequential manor when you arrive at your home. The Crestron system even stores personal preferences based on your fingerprint through biometric software.

Home automation is wonderful but it does come at a price. An average sized installations run about $50,000 and more sophisticated installations can run much more. Although very expensive, home automation will be a must have feature for luxury home buyers from here on out and become as ubiquitous as granite countertops and Sub Zero refrigerators.
