Are you tired of having to get up to do almost everything? Even the most basic tasks can get bothersome and annoying if you have to do them multiple times in a day. With smart home devices, simple tasks can effortlessly be automated without you having to lift a finger! Well, you may have to lift a finger to set everything up, but once that’s done a simple voice command or a tap on the phone will suffice.
Here are 3 smart home devices that we’ve filtered out which will help make things easier to do in your household and will hopefully be the cherished companions for the years to come!
Of course, the most significant factor for automating your household is a smart voice assistant. This versatile device is a speaker but with built-in voice assistants it can help you smoothly surf the web, play music, connect to your TV for streaming services and pretty much sync with all your other smart devices in the house and become one large control center you could say. Some smart home devices do not have an integrated voice assistant, meaning that you would be unable to control them with voice commands, but by syncing them to a smart speaker like the Amazon Echoor Google Home, you can easily enable voice control for the other devices!
If you have a large family, voice assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant both can help in personalizing search histories, schedules for alarms, and emails according to each individual and distinctive voice. Both Alexa and Google Assistant allow for at least six voicepersonalization with a single device.
2. Smart Bulbs
Smart bulbs may seem like an average smart home device but have multiple uses and features that will help you in automating your house! No longer would you have to walk all the way to the switchboard to turn off the lights when you’re too tired to even get up, or get back out of bed to switch off the lights downstairs.
Some smart bulbs and lighting devices even come with a pre-installed Bluetooth speaker. If you’re someone that doesn’t want to invest in a separate device for listening to music or those trendy Bluetooth speakers that integrate the beat to patterned lights, smart LED bulbs are the best choice for you, just saying.
Smart bulbs like the Sengled 2 Bulb are LED bulbs and can thus allow for different lighting options to choose from, whether it’s colored lighting to fit the ambiance or the mood you’re setting for the environment or if it is just brightening up the default mode. With voice commands and handheld smart application control through your smartphone devices, smart bulbs can be controlled from practically anywhere, with a single tap of your finger or your voice. Have an easy-going life without having to worry about whether the porch lights are on while you’re away or tucked into bed already – just whip out your smartphone or tell Alexa or Google to turn them on.
3. Smart Door Locks
Smart home devices are all about making your life easier, which is why smart door locks are the next best thing! They provide users around the clock security of their homes, by alerting them of any unwanted tampering or access to the door.
Smart Door locks can be controlled remotely through the integrated smartphone application and can provide users with detailed information on the opening and the disengaging of the lock.Some devices will attach directly to the deadbolt of your door’s lock and you won’t have to discard your keys. What is more, is that these devices can be perfect if you live in an apartment or with kids providing you with safety throughout the day!
With features like auto-lock and auto-unlock, the door will automatically unlock when it detects your arrival and auto-lock itself when the door has been closed behind you. Additionally, some smart door locks even enable users to provide virtual keycards or passcodes that will help any guests enter if you’re not already at home. And the best feature of all is the voiceenabled control that these locks offer. Users can simply ask their voice assistant to unlock the door or lock it whenthey’re on the way out without having to worry about constantly fumbling for the keys. With smartphone applications that alert you about your doors being locked and unlocked, users won’t have to speculate whether they’ve locked their doors (if auto-lock is turned off), they can easily check the mobile application and remotely lock their doors.
