The state-of-the-art new tech home, also known as the ZeroHouse 2.0, is
now open for tours at KB Home’s Rancho Santalina community, located in
the idyllic foothills of San Marcos. The new ZeroHouse 2.0 comes with
several standard features for KB homes, including solar panels, the Wiser™
home management system and a USB plug.
KB Home (NYSE: KBH) recently announced that all of its new homes will
now include a Wiser™
home management system, which allows homeowners to track their
home’s energy consumption, in real-time, from practically anywhere. The
standard system is also the base of a platform that can be enhanced to
include home automation features such as remote door lock control,
lighting, thermostat and security system operations.
Additionally, families with smartphones, tablets and laptops no longer
need to worry about wasting excess energy while charging their devices
as all new KB homes will now include an advanced USB outlet.
Conveniently placed in the kitchen area of many of KB Home’s floor
plans, the USB outlet features a traditional plug outlet with two USB
ports above it.
