Brilliant’s Builder Program Aims to Accelerate Smart Home Adoption
Smart home control company Brilliant has announced the launch of its national Builder Program, which would impact new-construction projects by aiding home builders in pinpointing homeowners’ smart home needs at the earliest stages and in incorporating the technology as part of a simplified installation process.
This initiative, announced at this week’s Pacific Coast Builders Conference, is designed to tap into needs unearthed by the company’s research, which showed interest in smart home technology among both younger and older buyers. The company found that 86 percent of new-home buyers, aged 36 and younger, are willing to pay more for a smart home versus a traditional home. It also found that the vast majority of first-time home buyers want a “move-in ready” home with little or no need to renovate. In addition, Brilliant said, home buyers aged 37 to 50 desire to live in a larger home with modern living amenities and smart home technology integrated throughout.
