Most practitioners say automated lighting is a major selling point for smart-home buyers. Being able to turn lights on and off from a smartphone is a particular draw for clients who travel away from home for long periods. For example, clients, who travel internationally, can turn their lights on from anywhere in the world to make the home appear occupied while they are gone.

Smart green features are high in demand. At the top of a smart-home buyer’s list is a smart thermostat. The most popular is the Nest Thermostat, which programs itself based on the user’s temperature preferences, adjusting itself once a home owner has left to avoid unnecessary heating or cooling of an empty house. The Nest can also be controlled from a smartphone and shows your home’s energy usage through the app or website.
