Does Smart Technology Offer Tenants More Options? Yes! 

There’s no doubt that smart technology is seemingly everywhere these days and Alexa, Cortana or Google has their digital hands in just about every part of our lives but should you add smart technology to your rental properties? The answer is yes. 

As a leading home management company in San Jose CA, we can tell you that the top smart technology upgrades that you should consider making for your property this year include the following.  

Smart Thermostat 

The smart thermostat tops our list as the top smart technology device that should be added to rental homes in 2019 because it makes keeping a home heated or cooled at an optimal temperature so much easier plus reduces overall energy costs as well. 

Cost – $150 to $500 depending on the smart thermostat that you choose. 

Smart Refrigerator 

The “new kid on the block” is the smart refrigerator. These units are excellent for ensuring that everything in your fridge from your vegetables to your soda stay cooled at the correct temperature. What’s best of all about smart fridges is that with them you can easily keep track of what’s in your fridge and possibly use the apps on your fridge to reorder food or supplies for your home without leaving your house. 

Cost – $1500 to $3500 

Smart Washer and Dryer  

Does your rental property have a washer and dryer? If so, you should consider upgrading them to smart washers and dryers.  

Having a smart washer and dryer will help your tenants to decrease their energy consumption while being able to efficiently get their laundry done because most smart washer and dryers can also be connected it Wi-Fi as well 

Cost – $1500 or more depending on the model.
