If you haven’t begun to convert your home into a smart home, now is the time to start. There has never been a more emerging technology that makes your living space more convenient. Smart technology for thermostats has been around for many years, but it is improving rapidly.
This technology allows you to control the temperature of your home from your smartphone. This, along with many other devices you can install, can not only increase your level of comfort but can also save you money. Let’s take a look at a few of the gadgets we are excited about this year.
Ecoboo Smart Thermostat (5th Generation)
Smart thermometers are not a new technology, but the Ecoboo has some pretty cool new features. This device does everything you would expect a smart thermostat to do, but it ups the ante with Alexa built-in. This device has a sleek touch screen interface coupled with remote sensors that will ensure each room of your home is the exact right temperature. What’s more, is the newest generation also plays music via Alexa or Spotify.
There is nothing more important than your family’s safety. House fires have become an increasingly prevalent problem with the addition of electronics and aging wiring in older homes. While traditional smoke detectors will work, there is a better solution.
Nest Protect is designed to help keep you safe from threats of fire or carbon monoxide. Its indicators will alert you to smoke or carbon monoxide and even turn lights on in the home to help guide you to safety. The light feature works with other smart devices like Philips Hue Lights to brightly illuminate paths in the event of heavy smoke.
Its sensors will even let you know what room of the house the fire is in. The device is so sensitive it can also differentiate between slow and fast-burning fires.
Philips Hue White A19 Kit
Philips white bulb starter kit is one of the best smart lighting kits on the market today. Using their app, Philips Hue Sync, you can sync your light to flash and change colors with music or movies. You can also change up your color schemes.
You can adjust the brightness with the touch of a screen. Philips integrates with most of your major smart home apps like Alexa, Apple Home, Google Home, and Nest.
Making the switch to smart home technology doesn’t have to cost a fortune. There are many gadgets out there for reasonable prices that will make your life more convenient and comfortable. Many of the options out there are green, and help you to reduce your energy output. This is not only good for the environment, but it also helps you to save money on your utility bills. If you are on a tight budget, smart plugs are a great start because they pay for themselves in a shorter time frame by cutting down on wasting energy output from appliances.
