Home automation increases the home value

With advances in UV, IR and wireless technology it has become increasingly simple and inexpensive to implement home automation systems in homes. For example motion detection sensors can detect that a person has entered a room, and automatically switch on the lighting. These home automation system features implemented should be explained to the licensed appraiser who will visit the house to appraise the home value for reverse mortgage. Most lenders offering a reverse mortgage have a system in place to assess the improvement and amenities which are installed, enhancing the home value.
