Throughout history, human beings have proved surprisingly talented when it comes to inventing things to make life that little bit easier. It’s just that today, we’re more reliant on technological innovations than ever before.
The list of products and gadgets available that can make a difference at home is already endless. If anything, knowing where to start can be half the problem.
Getting it right means steering clear of gimmicks and investing in something you’ll actually use. Not to mention, something that’s likely to become a staple in most homes eventually.
So with this in mind, here’s a brief rundown of just a select few tech items that are guaranteed to improve your life at home…at least a little:
- Wireless Phone Chargers
It’s not until you make the switch to wireless phone chargers that you realize just how restrictive their old-fashioned counterparts can be. Pop a few of these things in strategic places around the home and you’ll never need to ‘plug in’ your phone the conventional way again. They can also look surprisingly nice – way better than a bunch of tangled cables about the place.
- A Smart Robot Vacuum Cleaner
If you’re going to invest in one smart domestic device this year, make it a smart robot vacuum cleaner. Again, relinquish this laborious domestic duty to an automated appliance and you’ll wonder how you ever got by without it. A smart robot vacuum cleaner can make such an incredible difference on a daily basis, lightening the load while at the same time bringing a real feeling of freshness to the entire home. Doubly so if you have pets about the place – just as long as you choose a device that can cope with pet hair.
- A Bidet Toilet Seat
We won’t be going into too much detail as to how a hi-tech bidet toilet seat works or how you stand to benefit from one. It really isn’t necessary – all you need to know is that it’ll become an integral part of your everyday life, practically in an instant. Even if you’re not normally the type to use a bidet, make the switch to one of these things and you’ll be glad you did.
- Window-Cleaning Robot
Smart gadget manufacturers are slowly but surely turning their attention to windows, putting out a variety of interesting creations for keeping things clean and shiny. Windows can be a pain in the backside to polish at the best of times and aren’t known for staying clean for very long. With a smart window-cleaning robot in your arsenal, you’ll never need to worry about getting the job done manually again.
- Automatic Wi-Fi Resetter
These things can be an absolute godsend, given the fact that every router on the face of the earth needs to be reset on a pretty regular basis. The idea being that rather than watching your bandwidth deteriorate and eventually die entirely, this gadget automatically resets your router whenever it needs to be done. One less hair-tearing job to worry about – especially if you happen to work from home.
- Smart Doorbells
Last but not least, a smart doorbell is more about safety and security than making home life easier. But at the same time, what’s more important than peace of mind? It’s a relatively simple gadget, which connects to your home wi-fi network and is then links to your mobile device via an app. At which point, you can watch a live video feed of whatever’s taking place outside your home, receive an alert when anyone presses your doorbell, and communicate in real-time with whoever’s on your doorstep at the time. It’s also possible to store footage or trigger an alarm if anything suspicious is happening on your property.
