overview on smart home technology

Published: 16/05/2021

“Smart home” technology is leading the technological revolution.  What was science fiction two decades ago, is now reality and has changed the way we live our lives.

What is Smart Home Technology?

Smart Home devices communicate and share information making everyday household tasks simpler and more efficient

How it works 

Whilst out and about, the users receive alerts and updates about what’s happening in the home enabling them to remotely adjust the heating, monitor the security cameras and sensors, switch lights on and off, lock and unlock doors and boil the kettle for their return.

How does Smart Home technology help landlords and tenants?

By investing in this state-of-the-art technology, landlords are able to reduce costs, reduce energy usage, make a property more desirable and improve the tenant's experience.

The Main Benefits

Energy efficiency and security: Smart light bulbs, thermostats and plugs, will lower the running costs of a property and tech savvy tenants will be prepared to pay more rent if the property is efficient and saves them money on utility bills.

Smart locks, sensors and cameras, can ensure the property is protected, especially when the property is empty.

“Technology can enhance the resident’s experience, create operating efficiencies for landlords and reduce the environmental impact of properties”, say Kasia Mielcarz, Circa London's Property Manager. “Self-bleeding radiators, automatic stopcocks, wi-fi-enabled door locks and heating control apps, are a few of the increasingly sophisticated devices available”.

Listed below are a handful of smart gadgets we recommend our landlord’s consider:

Smart door locks
Smart thermostat
