As more and more COVID-19 vaccinations become available, we’re starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to the pandemic. Still, it’s no secret that we have at least several more months of social distancing to go. Why not accessorize our homes with some convenient and fun smart devices to enjoy in the meantime? Check out some of our favorite ways to boost the functionality of any home with technology.
We bet you already knew this one was going to be here! Nest thermostats are a game-changer when it comes to optimizing your HVAC usage. Google reports that they can save an average of 10% to 12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills. As a bonus, you’ll be able to control your home temperature from anywhere using an app on your smartphone.
Smart speakers have also come a long way since we initially started welcoming them into our homes back in 2016. These days, several size options are available for any smart speaker brand that you prefer. That makes it easy to match the speaker size with the size of the room you’d like it to occupy. If you link all of your smart speakers together, you can enjoy a home full of sound and music. Plus, you’ll be able to easily control the other smart devices in this blog with just your voice.
If you already have at least one smart speaker, you may want to consider purchasing some smart bulbs as well. Your smart speaker will act as a hub, allowing you to control lights on the interior and exterior of your home. Plus, you can easily create schedules if you’d rather not have to worry about toggling certain lights manually throughout the day.
Smart Security Cameras
There isn’t anything more important than the safety of your home, and smart security cameras make it easier than ever to keep yours safe and secure. If any unwanted activity is detected within the frame of a modern smart camera, you’ll be notified right away via a smartphone app notification.
