Many factors boosting your home value

Smart home technology can make a house a better and more comfortable living space, thus increasing the value of a house in the real estate market. Smart home technology can also help a household lessen energy consumption as the gadgets are more efficient power users.

Smart home devices are becoming cheaper, abundant and very easy to use. So, the adoption of this flourishing technology will rise. For now, may be many homeowners have questions and may ask themselves; ‘does installing smart devices add value to the property price?’ From buyers and renter’s perspective, according to survey, they certainly seem to believe that smart home increases house price and makes community safe. According to Barclays Mortgages, 28% of buyers would happily fork out some extra sum of money if a potential property was equipped with the latest digital home technology!
However, having all the smart home gadgets installed in your home can’t help you if, inside the house, there is a weak and slow cell signal reception. That is why cellular signal boosters such as the weBoost Connect 4G units are also important. Here are some ways in which signal boosters can add value to your home.
Eliminate Black Spots
Inside a home, there are places called black spots. These are locations where there is little to no cell signal reception. When this happens, a smart home will have a problem with connectivity. It will become a hassle to close the garage door when you are in the kitchen because the signal can’t go through.
Cellular signal boosters are designed to capture strong cell signal from the outside and amplify the signal before rebroadcasting it inside the home. With this technology, every corner of the house will have strong cell signal reception, allowing the owners the convenience to control and connect to their smart devices anywhere inside.
Have a Wide Coverage Area
Some signal boosters are designed to cover an area of up to five thousand square feet. It can cover multiple floors, making sure that cell reception in the first floor of the home is as strong as in the second floor and in the garden.
With a large coverage area, cell signal boosters will allow homeowners to install smart devices around the house, the garden, and even in the garage. A smarter home will be a more convenient home and will result to a rise of the home value.
Support Major Carriers in the USA and Canada
One major problem in houses today is that some houses are located in an area where cell signal for certain carriers are weak. However, with the help of a cell signal booster, this problem can be remedied instantly.
Choose cell signal boosters that support all major carriers in the USA and Canada, including AT&T, Verizon, US Cellular, AllTel, T-Mobile, and more. Even when the signal is weak, the booster will amplify it to make it strong enough to support a smart home.
Smart Home = Smart Work
Smarter homes are considered more valuable by the real estate market. The automation of gadgets and connectivity add more security, convenience, and comfort. Thus, a smarter home makes a house a better place to live and even work in.
