Going home, it’s the most important part of your workday.
Filled with laughter, and a great place to create memories with family and friends, your home is a place of comfort and security.
As technology keeps moving forward, so should our homes. As Americans, we seek out features that will help our homes run efficiently in a convenient way. We also like technology that helps us work smarter, rather than harder.
Shouldn’t keeping up your house be the same?
There are many smart products in today’s market, but not all of them are a smart investment for your home. We have listed some of our favorite finds, and you will love them too!
Smart Products for Your Home
When looking to invest in smart products for your home, it’s important to consider how it will fit into your lifestyle. If it won’t make your life easier, you won’t use it!
If you are looking to overhaul your whole interior space, a new design may have a more efficient flow, which will be great to add your new smart products to. Try contacting a construction company for help.
One of the first smart products homeowners consider when looking at smart devices is security systems. We want to keep our families safe, and with today’s technology, it’s easier than ever.
There is no need to enter into a contract with hidden clauses, fees and tears with a security company anymore. You can take the security of your home in your own hands, literally.
Combine this beauty with Kwikset SmartCode lock, and you have a match made in heaven.
Have a friend coming by, and they arrive before you are home? No need to make them wait in the driveway anymore. You can use your smartphone to unlock the door, or you can have a code created just for them.
Heating & Cooling
More efficient HVAC units and accessories are becoming increasingly more popular. Smart thermostats allow you to control your home’s heating and cooling remotely.
A couple of our favorites are the Nest Learning Thermostat and ecobee3 lite Smart Thermostat. Both units are compatible with Alexa. If you have a smart device like Google Assistant, Apple HomeKit, or Microsoft Cortana, ecobee3 may be the best option for you.
The GermGaurdian Air Purifier sports a HEPA filter that will protect your home from things that dimish its air quality.
You may not be able to control this air filter remotely (unless you have it plugged into your smart outlet!), but we still think it’s a perfect smart product for your home.
Help keep allergens such as mold, dust, dander and smoke out of the air in your home.
Smart outlets will quickly become your best friend. Cue “It’s a Whole New World”!
Smart outlets will allow you to turn devices plugged into your outlet on (and off) remotely. Not only does that mean extra security for you, but extra convenience.
When you leave town, you can intermittently turn your lights on and off in different rooms, to make it appear like you are home. Don’t want to have to remember to turn them on and off? Schedule it ahead of time!
No more nagging feeling that you forgot to turn something off. Just use your smartphone to check!
Our favorite perk is not having to get out of bed to turn the light off anymore. Just ask Alexa to turn it off for you (as long as it’s plugged into your smart outlet).
We love the Lenovo 10″ Smart Display for the kitchen! When your cooking you don’t want to have to keep flipping a cookbook. With the built-in Google Assistant, you won’t have to!
Have Google Assistant tell you what the morning commute will be, or what the weather is for the day, while your preparing breakfast for the kids, and gulping down your coffee.
This one isn’t a device, but we had to tell you about it!
Life is busy, it’s hard to remember to take care of our plants. If you don’t have a green thumb, evening remembering won’t do the trick.
That’s where the SmartPlant App comes into play.
We all know that having plants indoors is important for our health. Now we can customize a plan to take care of them, without all the hassle.
No more having to wonder if you are doing the right thing for the type of plant you have. You have experts at your hands who will answer your questions for you.
Philips LED Smart Bulbs are something you need for your home!
With these guys, you have 16 million different colors at your fingertips. You can create the right lighting for any occasion. You can even schedule your lighting to help you wake up, or fall asleep.
The Roomba i7+ Robot Vacuum has a 3-stage cleaning system, that will be able to clean the different surfaces in your home.
If you have a lot of traffic in your home, children, or animals, trying to keep up on keeping your floor clean is near impossible. With the Roomba i7 it is possible.
With the Fire Recast, you won’t have to worry about missing out on your favorite shows again. This DVR allows you to record two shows at a time and can store up to 75 hours of programming.
Not only is it convenient, but it looks great too!
