A Smart Look at Home Innovation – The Promise of the Smart Home

Coldwell Banker panel session at REAL Trends Gathering of Eagles reveals the promise of the smart home.

The smart home is here to stay. That’s the message industry leaders gave during a REAL Trends Gathering of Eagles smart home panel session, hosted by Coldwell Banker.

The panel session was moderated by CNET Global Vice President of Media Sales and Publisher, Courtney Cochrane and featured Coldwell Banker partner representatives from Lutron, Tesla, LG, Sengled and Nest. The session answered the most pressing questions in the smart home space – what a smart home is, how products are integrating with each other and the promise of the smart home.

According to Cochrane, the flexibility of being able to control your home devices remotely is an important part of the promise of the smart home. Coldwell Banker partners have made this a reality by revolutionizing the way we communicate with our home products to create a smarter, more conscious home.
