Many help you save money and get things done even when you’re not home while others increase your safety and security.
The best way to start in home automation is investing in a home hub designed to control all the gadgets in your home. The main contenders in this arena are Amazon Echo and Google Home. Apple is also going to enter the smart speaker market in 2018. Installing a home hub is easy – just plug them in and pair them up with your compatible devices. They then act as your “project manager” allowing you to control all the gadgets in your house with simple voice commands.
Once you have your home hub set up, you can go ahead and get yourself the gadgets that will address your specific needs. Want to save on your electric bill? Then, get smart energy meters that help you evaluate your energy usage. This helps you understand how much you’re spending on a typical day. It allows you to determine where and how you can save. For example, it tells you which of your appliances use too much energy and makes recommendations on how you can save electricity when using them.
If you want your house to be squeaky-clean but do not have the time to do the job, get yourself a robotic vacuum. It can be set up to clean your home when you’re at work. One of the best today is the Dyson 360 Eye Robot Vacuum Cleaner. It has clever sensors and uses a methodical path-like approach so it does not miss any spot in your home.
