Safety in the smart home is a superior selling point, one that can establish a strong builder-client relationship while also providing the utmost peace of mind for homeowners.
A recent news story reported that an Australian professor watched via video feed as his farm burned down due to bushfires occurring in the country. Fortunately though, the professor was able to remotely activate his smart sprinkler system from nearly 2,000 miles away, dousing the fire and saving his home.
What if someone had been inside the home during the inferno? What if there had been no sprinkler system to remotely activate via smartphone? This type of situation shows that without smart technology for the home, a man could have been left without one to call his own.
In a worse situation, lives could have even been lost.
What are some other technologies that could be used in emergencies? Here’s a look at five examples of how the smart home not only improves lives but also saves them?

Sprinklers: Inside & Out
Some clients may worry about interior sprinklers ruining their furniture and floors, but there’s an almost-certain guarantee that these homeowners value the lives of themselves and their families more. And when given the option between a damp room that may need some renovations versus a house that’s burnt to a crisp, the choice is fairly obvious.
Sprinkler systems installed inside the home can make an immeasurable difference when it comes to battling fires.
Take, for instance, a study performed by the Connecticut Fire Sprinkler Coalition, which reveals the stark contrast between two rooms ablaze—one with sprinklers, one without.
As long as clients can be assured the sprinklers won’t set off accidentally, ruining their interiors, builders can most certainly offer these systems as either standards or options in the home.
