Amy Mizner notes that homes that are fully operational from a phone or tablet, as well as other features seamlessly integrated into the home, will make everyday living more comfortable for homeowners.
Smart locks featuring keyless entry systems will be a hot item this year, according to Debi Benoit. Phones can serve as keys on certain door lock models, which addresses the hassle of losing keys or having to make copies for others.
And Sheryl Simon predicts smart thermostats and built-in charging stations around the home will start being integrated into new homes and remodels in the new year.
