5 New Technologies Every Home Should Have:
1. The Ecobee 4
The Ecobee 4 is a touchscreen thermostat which will allow you to control the temperature in each of your home’s rooms. As the Ecobee 4 boasts Alexa technology, you’ll be able to give your smart thermostat voice commands, instead of having to physically walk to your Ecobee, to change the temperature in the room that you’re in. As a bonus, you can also ask your Ecobee 4 for a weather forecast, which is handy if you’re thinking of planning a picnic or hanging out your washing.
2. Nest Protect
Nothing should be more important than the health, safety, and well-being of your family. So it’s definitely worth purchasing a Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide detector. Not only will the Nest Protect pick up the presence of slow and fast burning fires but it will also be able to tell you which room in your house, a fire has started in. Which will make it far easier for you to get your family members out of your house as quickly as possible.
3. Lutron Serena Remote Controlled Shades
Imagine being able to set your shades to automatically close at a set time, such as sunset. If you install the Lutron Serena Remote Controlled Shades into your home, you’ll be able to control your shades using an easy to use smartphone app or by simply telling Siri to close your blinds for you. If you find it difficult to drag yourself out of bed in the mornings, you can use your smartphone app, to set your blinds to rise when it’s time to get out of bed.
4. The Philips Hue LED Lighting System
The Philips Hue LED Lighting System will change the way that you switch your lights on and off forever. Instead of flicking a physical switch on your wall on and off, you’ll be able to control the lighting in your chosen room, using a smartphone application.
Better yet, you’ll be able to select light bulbs which can be dimmed, instead of light bulbs which are either on or off. As an added advantage, if you purchase the Philips Hue LED Lighting System, you’ll be able to purchase energy-efficient light bulbs, which will save you hundreds of dollars off your power bill every year.
5. Google Home
While from a distance Google Home may just look like a stylish speaker box, Google Home has a wide variety of uses, other than playing music. As Google Home boasts Alexa, Amazon’s virtual assistant, you’ll be able to get Alexa to play tracks from your favorite artist and to dim the lights in your lounge. Alexa can even give you a weather update or ring your friends for you.
