Lennar Charleston has just launched the World’s First Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Home Design with Activation and Support by Amazon®. This new approach to homebuilding enables whole-home Wi-Fi, seamless voice control, online shopping and home automation as an included standard feature.

As Charleston’s largest homebuilder, Lennar is known for leading-edge innovation. Its Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Home Design* integrates automation and voice control with Amazon® Alexa products. The new offering is now part of Lennar’s signature Everything’s Included® approach to homebuilding, a hallmark of the company’s 24 Charleston area new home communities.

“We live in a connected world, but most existing homes simply weren’t built for that world – leading to frustrating dead spots,” said David Kaiserman, president of Lennar Ventures. “By engineering state-of-the-art Wi-Fi right into the design and construction of every new Lennar home the way we do plumbing and ventilation – and then bringing it to life with Amazon® Alexa – families can enjoy a connected lifestyle to the fullest.”

Powered by Ruckus® Wireless, Lennar’s Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Home Design* guarantees consistent, reliable coverage in every room of the home. Homeowners can control a wide range of included smart products from the most innovative and reliable manufacturers – including Amazon®, Baldwin®, Honeywell®, Kwikset®, Lutron®, Ring®, Ruckus®, Samsung® and Sonos® simply by talking to Amazon® Alexa.

Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Home Design* ensures whole-home connectivity, enabling the best smart and streaming products to operate at peak performance today, while paving the way for new technologies that come to market in the future. In addition to the significant value Lennar’s signature Everything’s Included® program already offers – such as upgraded countertops, appliances, cabinets, flooring, and subway tile backsplash – buyers now may also receive a wide range of smart products from top manufacturers that change the way they live in their new home at no additional cost.

For example:

  • Luxurious smart front-door lockset and hardware from Baldwin® and Kwikset® allow secure, keyless and touch-to-open™ access at the front door.
  • Ring® Video Doorbell gives homeowners a look at who’s at the front door even when they’re not home.
  • Smart climate control keeps the home comfortable and allows homeowners to save on energy costs with Honeywell® thermostats.
  • Lights can be reliably controlled from anywhere inside or outside the home with Lutron® products.
  • Seamless integrated control with iOS or Android devices is easy from anywhere in the world with Samsung SmartThings™.
  • Buyers enjoy white-glove activation and service


 “There’s no doubt that people are intrigued and excited by the idea of living in a smart home that is connected and easy to control,” said Lennar Division President Jason Byham. “But there’s an equal measure of trepidation about installation and selecting the right devices. Lennar takes the guesswork out of it by curating the best brands and engineering them right into construction to create an entirely new way of living.”

“Lennar’s Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Home Design* creates an experience once reserved for the technologically sophisticated – now it’s within reach of every Lennar homebuyer at every price point,” Jason Byham said. “We’ve engineered a home that weaves the best technology brands into daily life in ways that connect people and truly reflect how they live today.” Whether you’re a first-time buyer, move-up, luxury, empty-nester or retiree, Lennar’s 24 Charleston area new home communities offer home choices priced from the high $100s to $700s to fit your needs and lifestyle perfectly.
