Aside from smart home security systems and smart thermostats, other devices that have found their way to connected homes are cutting-edge cleaning gadgets. These devices save you time and energy while ensuring that your home is always clean.
Eric Murrell from At Home in the Future says: "Smart appliances can reduce friction in the life of a family. After all, who hasn't bickered with a family member over whose turn it is to do the laundry or scoop the litter box? Plus, "smart appliances can actually save money in the long run, both in efficiency and safety features."
Robot vacuums are some of the first devices to come in the world of home automated cleaning. The first one, Roomba, came out in 2002. Recent upgrades have made these vacuums smarter. For instance, iRobot Roomba and the neato Botvac Connect have the capability to go back to the charger when their batteries are low and then resumed cleaning. They also both record a history of what they’ve cleaned.
An addition to home automated cleaning gadgets are smart trashcans. Most models in the market are equipped with infrared sensors and automatically open when you’re approaching. The simplehuman 45-liter semiround sensor can also features an antibacterial surface.
Another great addition are smart air cleaner that run various filters to ensure that the air we breathe is safe for us and will not trigger allergies and other ailments. A budget-friendly option is the GermGuardian 4-in-1 WiFi Smart Air Filter ($200) that runs ultraviolet light to kill germs, HEPA and charcoal for odours.
