Top 5 Reasons Millennials Benefit From a Smart Home

Nov 01, 2018|

Smart Home makes Life easier

Home ownership—it’s the American Dream. But rising home prices and interest rates across the nation, not to mention record high amounts of student debt, have turned millennial homebuyers into savvier shoppers who want to get the best bang for their buck when it comes to their homes.

Not only that, but millennials have different priorities than their parents did when it comes to buying a home. Research shows that the average millennial wants a home with features like modern appliances, green technology, and the ability to individualize their homes.

With that in mind, smart home technology is a smart choice for millennials who are in the market for a home. Here are five ways millennials would benefit from a smart home:

The smartest home technology

We’re surrounded by the latest and greatest in smart technology, so it only makes sense that our homes are smart, too. Smart homes take advantage of the latest technology to automate your home.

Smart home automation transforms your home into a comprehensive system that all works together to make your home a more comfortable, convenient place to live.

Whether you want to turn on your lights while you’re out of town, check your video doorbell camera feed to see who’s at your front door, or adjust your home’s temperature without getting out of bed, smart home technology can make it happen.

Flexibility for on-the-go

A smart home lets you access your home no matter where you go. With the Vivint app, you can remotely control your smart home from your smartphone, allowing you to:

  • view security and doorbell camera feeds.
  • turn your lighting on and off.
  • lock and unlock your doors.
  • adjust your temperature settings.

Learn everything you need to know about the value and security of a smart home in one quick, easy read.

You can also use the app to set custom rules and notifications, such as automatically locking your doors or arming the security system at a certain time.

Energy savings to help you go green

Saving energy and money is important to millennials, and a smart home can help you do both.

The Vivint Smart Thermostat is a wireless smart thermostat that integrates with the smart home system to learn your temperature preferences and automatically adjust the temperature. Your home stays comfortable, you help the environment by saving energy, and you save money —win, win, win.

Smart lighting also helps you go green. Set custom lighting rules that turn lights on or off as needed, or control your lights with the smart home app. Smart lighting also uses LED bulbs, which use 75% less energy and last 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs, providing significant energy savings.

Integration with current tech

You don’t have to spend a ton of money upfront to buy a smart home system that actually works—a Vivint system integrates with many smart devices that utilize Z-wave technology that you already have.

For example, popular voice-activated speakers like Google Home and Amazon Echo easily integrate with Vivint, giving you the ability to control smart lights, the thermostat, smart locks, and your security system with your voice.

So no more worrying about getting up from bed to check if you locked the door. Simply say, "Hey, Google. Lock my front door."

Ability to personalize

You want your home to be as unique as you are. With Vivint, you can customize your system so it includes all the features you find important to meet your needs.

For instance, let's say you want a security system that goes beyond motion sensors and a security panel. You can create a customized security system that includes features you want and need, like a doorbell camera, indoor and outdoor surveillance cameras, and smart locks.
