If you’ve been anywhere near an electronics shop in the last few years, surfed the web or even checked your social media, you’ll have seen that Smart electrics are the new big thing for homeowners. There are countless creative ways to customise your home experience, from light bulbs that play music through to automated heating adjustment. Practically everything in the home can now be controlled through your phone or laptop, so here are a few of our favourite ways you can customise your living space with the latest in Smart technology:
Rise And Shine
With the rise of Smart light bulbs in the home, there are hundreds of new ways to improve your day; from switching the lights on before you get in, to creating the suitable mood lighting for watching a film. One of the most health-positive ways to use this new technology is the sunrise and sunset feature you can get on certain Smart bulbs; hire an electrician to install lighting right above or to the side of your bed and you can wake up every day peacefully with the sun, rather than through a blaring alarm clock.
There’s nothing more boring than hoovering, but you can forget about hauling the Henry out yourself several times a week. Using Smart technology that’s been around for several years now, you can set your little robot vacuum to give your house a spring clean several times a week while you’re out at work. It can even plug itself back into its dock to power up – all you need is an electrical contractor to install a socket in your hoover’s chosen resting spot for effortless cleaning.
From iKettles to smart stoves, the kitchen is one of the most Smart-friendly places in the modern home. With all this technology ready and waiting to follow your every command, you can end up with tangles of wires and too many sockets. However, a good electrician can help you to put all those wires out of sight, and add sockets in neater locations to save countertop space.
