Renovating homeowners are integrating “smart” features into their homes, according to the 2016 U.S. Houzz Smart Home Trends Survey, conducted in collaboration with CEDIA. The survey of nearly 1,000 homeowners in the midst of, planning, or who have recently completed a home renovation project found that nearly half of renovating homeowners are incorporating “smart” technology: systems or devices that can be monitored or controlled via smartphone, tablet or computer (45 percent). In fact, renovated homes are more than twice as likely to include a smart system or device than before the renovation (51 percent versus 20 percent, respectively), according to Houzz. Nearly a third of upgraded smart home systems or devices can be controlled via a central hub (30 percent), and a quarter include voice-controlled features (26 percent). Homeowners report greater levels of satisfaction with their upgraded smart features than their non-smart features.
