We are starting to transition to IoT upgrades for our home and businesses but the technology is no doubt in its infancy. But more and more products flood the market every week, and it will soon be the case that the distinction of things and IoT products will be an arbitrary distinction. There are already things that allow you to remotely control systems in your home such as your lighting, thermostat, and even the crock pot in your kitchen, which is making our lives easier and more efficient in many ways. Everywhere you turn, efficiency is key. ksjldafasdfadf

In the United States alone households are penetrating the technology on the small home frontier more quickly than any other demographic. In 2016 there was a market presence of 5.8% and by the year 2020 we are expected to hit 18.6%. So consider if you’re not part of this 5.83% and are most likely on the fence and plan on getting around to it. You are probably wondering where do you even begin with a market that large and what products will give you the biggest bang for your buck. We have combined a list of several reasons how and where you should make the change in your home.

The first reason and way that IoT can affect our life is in the efficiency of time as well as energy. It is a common occurrence that we are get a notification from the post office or Amazon only to realize we are not there and cannot sign for the package. Thus we have a wasted half day when we have to go to the post office and physical retrieve this parcel, along with a myriad of paper work to verify your ownership of the parcel. Or had a motion sensor go off only to have you rush home and find that there is no apparent problem. zazazazazaz

This is why the August Smart Lock is the first of our must have IoT products. It provides secure and safe keyless access to your home wth iOS and Android smartphones, and its extremely sleek. It weighs in at just under 1lbs and 3.3×3.3×2.2 inches.

Another reason to go smart with your home if you are a home owner or care taker is that smart homes sell much faster on the open market. According to a 2016 poll by a top real estate brokerage firm, Coldwell Banker they are 54% of homeowners in the market who plan to sell their home would like to transition to a smart home. In fact, 65% of this group surveyed also said that they would be willing to pay $1,500 more to do so. Simply put, it pays to go smart.

In my own case it often feels kind of too much like a Sci-Fi claustrophobic nightmare. This is one thing that will most likely pass when we get out of the infancy of the market and where it is likely to go.
