Upon returning from The Consumer Electronics Show 2016, I was surprised to see how popular the smart home segment of technology is becoming. The REAL Trends tech team spent multiple days walking the smart home floor, which showcased a multitude of smart home technologies and devices. To accurately review and cover each system that made the REAL Trends “Best of CES 2016,” I will be reviewing and featuring a single home automation technology that we included on our list.


Home automation in the residential real estate space is set to explode in the next few years in popularity. The applications for real estate professionals include: remotely allowing potential buyers to enter or view the home, providing simple technology solutions to increase the value of a home and decrease the time on market, providing a meaningful and front-of-mind closing gift that will be used every day.


The reviews will start in next week’s edition of TechTouch. Don’t miss it!
