You might be surprised to find out how much smart home installations can streamline your lifestyle. Read on to find out what simple domestic devices might have a positive impact on your day.
Technology To Make Your Life Easier
Phones have become much more than devices to make and receive calls on. You’ll likely need one to operate most of the smart technology mentioned here.
With the addition of voice activated virtual assistants our phones are more useful than ever. Need to Google something while you’re driving? No problem. You can get an answer to your question simply by speaking to your phone. There’s no need to pull over because smart technology means you can operate your phone safely and keep your eyes on the road.
Automated Blinds & Curtains
These are great for those with limited mobility as well as for windows in hard to reach areas. This smart home installation means that you can open and close your curtains with the click of a button. A great way to add a real touch of luxury to your home!
If you need a cup of coffee to wake up in the morning, this is the device for you. You can connect your smart kettle to your phone, so you can get water on the boil before you’ve even got out of bed. You can even set up your kettle to activate on a daily schedule, so you don’t even need to be awake to get things on the go.
Smart Slow Cooker
Many smart slow cookers don’t need a phone connection. The smart technology is contained in the cooker. Simply fill the pot with your ingredients, then use the digital display to set up the correct temperature and time to start cooking. You can put together an easy meal before leaving the house and return home to a delicious dinner that’s hot and ready to eat.
Do you worry that you’ve left your straighteners on all the time? This could be your favourite piece of smart technology. A smart plug is a plug that can be switched on and off by your phone. If you’re concerned that you’ve left anything on when you’re not in the house, you can switch it off at the tap of a button. What a relief!
A few years ago, robotic vacuum cleaners were futuristic fiction. Brands such as Roomba and RoboVac are now household names, but this smart technology does come at a price. Smart hoovers retail well into the hundreds of pounds. Robot vacuums can be connected to home assistants like Alexa, so you can start hoovering your home without lifting a finger.
