3 of the Best Smart Home Tech Companies of 2019

Today’s smart home technology is more than just a cool trick. It’s a major draw for your potential clients.

Imagine being able to check your home security from work, or handle a water leak while on vacation, or even just turn out the lights without getting out of bed. A smart home can do all of that and more.

If you or your clients are looking to invest in smart home technology, it helps to know where to start. Here are three of the best smart home tech companies that were leading the pack and changing the conversation in 2019.

Philips Hue

If your clients have been shopping for smart lightbulbs, they’ve probably stumbled across Philips Hue. Sure, there are plenty of smart home lights out there, but few have matched the momentum of Philips Hue.

Imagine, if you will, the convenience of turning off all your lights at the press of a button. Or changing the colors of the lights in your room to provide a romantic atmosphere (without changing every individual lightbulb). Or using an app to check that you turned out the lights, even if you’re miles away from home.

This is what Philips Hue offers its customers–all with a system that’s easy to install and affordable for regular people.


If you need home automation that covers all avenues, look no farther than Notion. It’s not just about convenience–it’s about providing a system that has your back when the going gets tough.

For example, Notion will alert you if the front door is open, that a smoke alarm has sounded, that the lights are on, that the water is leaking, or any number of random incidents that are easier to manage when you have an extra set of eyes.

That’s exactly what Notion provides to your clients, all with an easy-to-use app that lets them take control of their home.

August Smart Lock

Finally, there’s August Smart Lock, which is the perfect system for keeping a house safe and secure.

It’s not just a lock. It’s a convenient, attractive, high-quality lock that’s easy to install and use. Because August Smart Lock understands that ordinary people don’t have time to fight with a system that would make the Pentagon look like a cardboard box.

It’s simple, and that’s the beauty of it. The system integrates with your existing deadbolt and allows you to check and turn the deadbolt with an app.

Making the Most of Smart Home Tech Companies

Knowing the best smart home tech companies is valuable to a real estate agent because your potential clients value it more than ever.

In fact, home monitoring, automation, and security are the foremost concern for Midwest homebuyers. So if you’re looking to sell a house, smart home technology–especially security-related technology–is a major draw for would-be homebuyers.
