Gadgets are getting smarter day by day. Be it your smartphone, your laptop or even your television, these things can do way more than what they could a few years ago. You may have already heard about Virtual Assistants such as Google Assistant, Alexa and Siri. You may have used them on your smartphones to ask basic questions such as “Hey Siri, where is the nearest gas station?” But they are capable of doing way more than that.
So, here are 5 ways on how a Smart home can improve your life:
You can control and automate your home’s lighting system
Lighting accounts to more than 30% of a home’s energy consumption. Smart lights can do way more than just saving money. You can control your lights either with your smartphone, or with just your voice. You can have presets saved so that the lights work exactly the way you want them to. You can set when the light turns on at night, or set the lights to turn off automatically when there is no motion detected. You can set your lights to slowly brighten when you want to wake up, turn on when you’re away to make it look like someone is home, turn off automatically when you leave the house, and so much more.
You can prevent a disaster
We all know that a minor gas leak can lead to a huge disaster. In a Smart Home, you can be notified easily if there is a gas leak or if water is leaking and is detected by the sensor. Also, you can also set the device to automatically dial up 911 once a leak is detected so that you don’t have to worry about calling the emergency services manually. You can also set up a siren or alert lights to go off when there is a leak detected in the system.
You can control your doors and make your home more secure
Manual door locks are a thing of the past. How cool would it be if you could get your door to automatically unlock when you’re making your way in? Well, this is actually possible in a smart home. You can set up a camera which detects your face when you are entering your home and unlock the door in an instant. What more, the door will also lock automatically once you enter your house. Isn’t that awesome? Now you don’t need to worry about leaving the door unlocked when you leave your house.
You can stay connected to your family
With a Smart Home, you can easily monitor your children and pets, even if you’re away from home. You can easily get notified when you’re kids come home from school or if your dog has left your house unexpectedly. You can easily control your pet feeder with the help of your smartphone so that you’re pet doesn’t starve or isn’t over-eating. You can also set-up a camera outside your home if you have any unexpected visitors.
You can order groceries and other essentials
With online shopping, a Smart Home can make sure you receive fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, and milk on a regular basis. There are many tasks a Smart Home can handle when it comes to online shopping. Making sure the fridge is stocked, slogging off to the shops daily or weekly, and fighting the crowds is all an absolute pain. So with the help of a Smart Home, it can make sure that you receive fresh fruits and vegetables, milk and meat on a regular basis.
