Moving Out? The Ultimate Guide To Understanding What To Do With Your Smart Home Devices.
If you are moving from your smart home and don’t want to take your smart devices with you, there are many things you could do. Let’s start! If you plan to leave your smart devices behind, it could be a great selling point for customers.
For safety, devices like security cameras and door locks need to be fully logged out of, and you should aim to provide proof to the buyers that you no longer have access to the devices.
It is better to leave some smart devices in place, like a thermostat. HVAC accessories like temperature sensors, smart air conditioning, and radiator controllers should all be left behind along with smart door locks, external security cameras, flood lights, and smart window blinds. The same goes for smart irrigation systems and permanent external devices like smart lighting and weatherproof audio equipment in your garden or pool area. Anything that is made-to-measure should be left behind and the buyers will always appreciate these add-ons.
While vacating the property for its new owner you should make sure to log out of everything. Delete devices like security cameras, sensors, thermostats, and door locks from the smart home apps on your phone, ensuring you can no longer access them and also factory reset everything. Some devices work with specific accounts associated with them, in which case you should delete those accounts as well.
You don’t have to delete your Alexa, Google Home or Apple HomeKit accounts when moving to a new property. Just remove the devices you plan to leave behind and factory reset them. The devices you plan to take to your new home will automatically continue working with the accounts.
