Smart home devices have been growing in popularity for the last several years. Improvements in smart home technology make these high-tech gadgets increasingly sought after in modern homes. We’ve come a long way since the early days when all smart home devices could do was turn things off and on.
Let’s take a look at some of the 2019 smart home options for your home…
Smart Temperature Control
Smart thermostats can save you money and help save the environment. There’s no reason to heat or cool an empty house. It’s a waste of money, a waste of resources and it adds to your carbon footprint. With a smart thermostat, not only can you set timers to account for your schedule, but you can also log in from anywhere in the world. So, if your plans change, you can adjust a smart thermostat accordingly, and you don’t need to go home to do it.
Smart Home Security
A smart security system is a popular 2019 smart home choice. Smart security systems include cameras, motion sensors, smart locks and speakers. If you’re like most people, you spend more time outside your home than in it. With a smart security system, you can grant remote access to repairmen, and watch their work from where you are. No need to miss several hours of work because your garbage disposal is broken or your water heated needs replacing.
Smart Home Speakers
Finally, the most popular smart home device of 2019 is the smart speaker. Smart speakers boast an impressive list of features. These devices such as Amazon Echo (better known as Alexa) and Google Home bring a new level of convenience to your lifestyle. Apple lovers can plug in with Apple Home Kit products, as well.
You may be surprised at how much you use smart home speakers on a daily basis. It’s like having an always-on personal assistant. When paper towels run low, rather than having to write it on a shopping list, just tell Alexa to order some more.
Smart speakers are also very popular for their ability to play music on command, and search the internet for answers. You can integrate smart speakers with other smart home technology, such as a smart thermostat, giving you the ability to control the devices with simple voice commands.
We’ve only scratched the surface of what these devices are capable of. As new options roll out, smart home technology prices keep getting better. Consider smart home devices
