KB Home's ZeroHouse 2.0 Model In San Diego, Calif. (Photo: Business Wire)

Ever wonder if you remembered to turn down the thermostat? Can’t recall if you locked the front door? Tired of paying pricey electricity bills? Worries like these could be concerns of the past for San Diego county homebuyers who choose a new KB home with innovative net-zero technology and cool new options for the modern family.

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.

“By expanding our ZeroHouse 2.0 program and options to San Marcos, homebuyers in San Diego County now have more power than ever before to customize their energy and water efficiency,” said Steve Ruffner, president of KB Home’s Southern California division. “In addition to offering the latest in new home technology, our new homes available at Rancho Santalina are beautifully appointed and nestled in a picturesque hillside neighborhood that offers its residents recreational amenities such as parks and walking trails. It is a truly special community that showcases the awesome combination of value, choice, location and innovation that only KB Home can deliver.”
