The future is well and truly here, and you’ll be impressed at the tech you can get for your home nowadays. Gone are the times when the television or family computer was the pinnacle of home technology – tech is seeping into every aspect of day-to-day life to make it all that little bit easier.
So, here’s some new tech that you should consider welcoming into your home. Make your days go that little bit smoother!
Voice Command Centres
Everybody has heard of some kind of voice command centre, be it Alexa, Google Assistant, or Apple HomeKit – you name it.
While these inventions were initially brought onto the market as a way to stream music remotely, more and more we are seeing new tech released with integration into a voice command centre.
These have the power to change how you live your life and can ease the burden of everyday living by helping you to take care of things remotely. It really is amazing what you can hook into voice command centres now – and just how seamless their integration into existing technology has become.
That takes us onto;
Smart Coffee Machines
Yes, you read that right! Smart coffee machines have been on the market for quite some time and the first models began with smart wake technology to turn themselves on at a given time to make you a mug! Perfect for those rushed mornings.
But as of late, coffee machines have been getting an upgrade with integration into mobile technology and, yes, voice command centres.
Want a cup of coffee, but don’t want to miss your favourite show? Command your coffee machine from the comfort of your sofa using your voice. The newer smart coffee machine models have Alexa integration!
It seems that you can stick “smart” in front of anything these days – but nothing else really describes these intelligent pieces of state-of-the-art technology.
When it comes to lighting, you can integrate your ceiling mounted lights with smart bulbs that can be controlled remotely.
Already in a traffic jam on the way to work when you forgot to switch off the hallway light? Well, no more energy wastage! With smart tech lighting, you can control your lights from your phone.
And yes, you guessed it! These smart bulbs can also be controlled with a voice command centre. Switch off all your home lights with a simple voice command.
Sticking with the smart trend and we encounter possibly the most useful so far, smart heating technology. While you can integrate heating hubs that control all your home’s heating from your phone, and voice, it can get more granular than that.
Things like thermostatic radiator valves can control individual radiators. Want to heat only one room and don’t want to switch on all your radiators? These valves are the solution.
Trade radiators have an excellent range of these thermostatic radiator valves for both home use and commercial use if you happen to own a business. You should take a look and see if they are for you!
