With the coming of every new year, the main players in the technology field gear up to show off their latest inventions and breakthroughs at the annual Consumer Electronics Show convention. Taking the entire world by storm, the CES gives us a sneak peek at all of the technological innovations that will be prevalent this year.

Since all the newest smart home technologies are showcased, this has a major effect on the luxury real estate industry. Let’s explore the best home smart technologies to look out for right now and in the coming year.

Smart Security

Many luxury homeowners choose to go smart for safety and security reasons. We can expect to see these installed everywhere in 2019 and beyond.

Arlo announced their new full-scale security systems, which detect motion, carbon monoxide, smoke, window and door openings, and more.

Netatmo is coming out with the first-ever video doorknob, which links with Apple products and allows users to ask Siri to show them who’s at the door.

Deadbolts are a thing of the past. Go key-free with smart locks that work with combinations put into a keypad or touchscreen. Resources like these are helping keep homes safer than ever before.

Smart switches and plugs are the new standards for luxury homes. This year, the collection of available electric accessories has expanded immensely, with tons of creative applications that are helping us lead more energy efficient lives.
