Appearances can be deceiving - this prewar apartment is underpinned with state-of-the-art smart home technology (200 Mercer Street, #4B - Douglas Elliman) Appearances can be deceiving - this prewar apartment is underpinned with state-of-the-art smart home technology (200 Mercer Street, #4B - Douglas Elliman)
Over the past few years, the Internet of Things (IoT) has dramatically expanded from smart thermostats to full homes where the temperature, blinds, lights, security, and entertainment are controlled by a wall panel or a smartphone app like something out of The Jetsons or a futuristic movie. Savant, Crestron, Lutron, and Control4 are among the most popular systems; either way, a smart home needs three components:

  • A hub to control all devices. This can be anything from a central control panel to one’s own smartphone or tablet.
  • Compatible software to control and sync gadgets. Many ready-made home systems will already offer this, but those going the DIY route should take care to check with the hub’s manufacturer to ensure that the apps and devices will work with it.
  • Smart devices themselves! Depending on the kind of smart home you wish to create, these can include anything and everything from energy-saving thermostats to video doorbells to multi-room speakers.
Thanks to significant technological advances, installing smart home technology has never been easier. It is so easy, in fact, that some builders and designers have been able to seamlessly incorporate it into their new residential developments. With built-in Crestron systems in every unit, One United Nations Park is perhaps the best-known example; it is far more common for developers to incorporate basic features like smart thermostats and smart locks into their infrastructure and let buyers decide how far they want to go with the rest.
Indeed, some form of smart home technology is becoming more frequent than not in new developments. But for those living in older buildings, all hope is not lost. In the early days of IoT, smart home set-up required the kind of invasive installation that co-op boards and building managers were none too pleased about. Today, though, wireless solutions without permanent fixtures or landline connections can work in all types of New York homes. The following listings are located in buildings constructed over 50 years ago, but come equipped with state-of-the-art smart home technology.
