Home Networking for Rental Properties
The smart home technology market has grown significantly in recent years, with around 66% of households having at least one smart TV and Amazon Echo being top of the most gifted products last Christmas. It is only a matter of time before smart buildings, that make use of automatically controlled and connected systems, become the norm. They are already popular among countless homeowners in Windsor and across the UK, and it is important for landlords to see how turning their rental properties into smart buildings can be beneficial.
As a landlord, you will naturally be looking at ways to save money and only spend when necessary. However, as our smart home specialists and electrical contractors explain, investing in smart home networking can save you money in the long run:
By installing some smart home technology in your rental property, it makes for an excellent unique selling point that will make your property more appealing to potential tenants. It also gives tenants another reason to stay in the property for longer and allows you to charge higher rent. You don’t need to spend a fortune either, our NICEIC electrician experts are able to visit your rental property to install and maintain devices for a very competitive price.
Our smart home specialists have helped landlords in Windsor and the surrounding areas benefit from making their rental properties more energy efficient. An energy efficient home with a higher EPC rating is more attractive to tenants and if you choose to sell, will often go for more. It also means lower energy bills and lowers the chance of issues such as damp from arising – beneficial for both landlord and tenant. Two of the best smart home devices our electrical contractors install to improve a home’s energy efficiency, are the Nest Thermostat (better control over home heating) and Lightwave (home networking and smart devices for power, lighting and electrical appliance energy consumption).
Another area where smart home technology plays an important role for landlords is home security. Again, it benefits both the landlord and the tenant. Landlords can rest assured their investment is protected, especially if the tenant is out of town and the property empty. A smart security system installed by a competent NICEIC electrician from Fuzelogic, will also make tenants feel safer and encourage them to rent the property long-term. There are a range of smart security devices now available to suit all budgets, from video doorbells and security cams to automated security lighting and smart motion detectors.
REMEMBER. As a landlord in Windsor or elsewhere in the UK, you have a legal responsibility to make sure all electrical installations and appliances in your rental properties are in a safe condition. Contact our NICEIC electrician for electrical safety inspections.
