As more devices out there are being labeled as having “smart home technology,” the question is: Just how interested are new-home shoppers in this technology and would they actually use it in their new homes?

New Home Source did a survey with a panel of new-home shoppers with varying demographics and at various stages in their home search, to see what they had to think about this ever-changing field of tech.

So what did they have to say? Smart home technology is a hot commodity.

The panelists were asked a series of questions regarding smart home technology. When asked, in general, are you interested in smart home tech, 91 percent of panelists said yes and only 9 percent said no.

Thus, it’s clear smart home technology is something worth considering.

For the purpose of this survey, smart home technology was broken into seven categories:

  • - Temperature (thermostats and other temperature-monitoring devices)
  • - Entertainment (TVs, music systems, etc.)
  • - Security (door locks, alarm systems, etc.)
  • - Safety (smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and other safety devices)
  • - Lighting (lightbulbs, control systems, etc.)
  • - Appliances (refrigerators, ovens, etc.)
  • - Other


Here are the results:
