Make More off of Your Rental

Whether you’re an Airbnb host or you’re looking for a long-term rental tenant, you’re not putting your best foot forward until you’ve got a smart home.

Whether you’re an Airbnb host or you’re looking for a long-term rental tenant, you’re not putting your best foot forward until you’ve got a smart home.

There are many benefits when upgrading to a smart home that apply specifically to property owners. The first of which is automated locks and doorbells.

With a smart home, you can provide your tenants with access to the home via a temporary key pass. That means if your guests are staying 3 days, and have a specific check in and out time, you can use the virtual key pass to ensure their access is only granted in the times specified in your agreement. You can also give your guests access to the integrated control system, allowing them to lock up the place from bed, check who’s at the door via the doorbell, and unlock anything without even moving.

These features all increase the safety and security of not only your guests but your rental space as well. Security is another key feature that a smart home upgrade can improve. When the house is unoccupied, you’ll be able to make sure the alarm system is armed and the cameras are running. Not to mention, if the property is ever vandalized in any way, you can check your exterior security cameras for evidence.

Another way you can give your rental space a leg up in appeal and value is through whole home audio and integrated video. With a complete surround system, guests will be able to easily fill the whole house with music or stream their favorite movies and shows from multiple platforms. Many tenants rent spaces for short span hosting. Equip them with all the gadgets they need to wow their guests!

*The calculated home technology budget range you will receive will includes parts, labor & accessories (Tax not included)
(a round number is OK)
Numerous structures on the property: Dock, Casita, Guest House, Barn, Gate etc. Check all that apply.
Prewire installation calculations assume you would like your home fully wired for ALL home automation technologies shown throughout the budget calculator, including 'future-ready' wiring. Prewire pricing can vary substantially based on what features you would like in your home. The wiring budget is for low-voltage wiring, not for electrical.
Prewire pricing will vary based on exactly what features you would like in your home. Read this article about the importance of wiring/cabling in today's "wireless" world. Your local Smarter Homes integrator is the best resource for exact prewire pricing. Wiring budget is for low-voltage wiring only, not electrical.
Keep in mind that our modern lifestyle and our home's automation technology systems are extremely reliant on a quality network and Wi-Fi system. Most homes are moving towards enterprise-grade hardware and away from the types of network products you could buy in an office supply store or a consumer computer store. We recommend that all homeowners consider the network and Wi-Fi system to be the most important system and installation within the home.
Higher-quality sound or higher-grade architectural finished speakers can range from $5,000.00 to $10,000.00 PER ROOM
Basic background music system pricing ranges from $1,500.00 to $5,000.00 per room including all equipment, labor, and programming.
Range includes video sources such as AppleTV, a Blu-ray player, satellite receiver, and remotely-locating them for best aesthetics. A basic soundbar is included for better audio.
This is called “video distribution” and reduces the amount of audio/video equipment located at each TV location/room.
A surround sound system creates an immersive sound experience, much like a dedicated home theater room, though in a dual-purpose room such as a Family Room, Master Bedroom, etc. If you would like more than one surround system location, click on the "Add Another Surround System" button below
Typically, homeowners want to see the following areas: front of house, front door, driveway / gate, sides of house, and pool. If you are more concerned about security, you may want to add cameras for the perimeter of your property. Good-quality cameras see about 75 feet of distance on average. The high range of the budget estimate includes higher resolution cameras, better night vision, and longer surveillance recording time.
The installation of a lighting control system reduces wall clutter, allows preset lighting scenes at the push of a button, increases security through programming automation, and adds convenience.
Motorized shades add beauty, convenience, address privacy concerns, and can be used to save energy. If desired, provide your best guess on how many windows/shades you want to motorize. The higher-end of the budget range includes higher-end fabrics, large windows, and dual-roller shades (both sheer and privacy shades on one window).
For example, a house music app, an app to operate your TV, an app for lighting automation, an app for locks, an app for cameras, an app to open close garage doors & gates, etc. Or do you want to control the entire house through a single unified app that controls all the automation systems within the home?
Make your home feel larger by balancing the light between indoor and outdoor areas.
