With technology being more and more present in our lives, the way we interact with everyday objects and how they interact between themselves is evolving. This is happening even with the objects in our house, as our home is fast becoming a smart home.
Here is a list of four essential gadgets that every smart home needs:
Smart Body Analyzers
Sometimes stepping onto the scales isn’t all that enjoyable, but the whole experience is given a boost with the recent wave of smart body analyzers. Rather than watching the dial determine our weight, all of our vital statistics are now in the palm of our hand. With tech from companies such as Withings, Fitbit, and InBody, we are given information such as weight, body mass index, body composition, fat percentages and heart rate. Some models even give us weather reports and measure indoor air quality. The data is then stored on an app and our progress is recorded, making a healthy life a whole more achievable.
Voice-enabled wireless speakers
Personal assistant apps are part of the smartphone generation. The ”ask a robot” age was ushered in by the likes of Apple’s Siri. Now, companies like Amazon and Google have applied that same type of tech in the home. Amazon Echo and Google Home are more than just sources of random facts. They are ultra intelligent smart technology hubs designed to link our homes to the various everyday apps we rely on. From the moment we wake up to the moment we fall asleep, these products can offer help, guidance or just a well-timed joke.
Self-learning home automation
With all these high-tech home gadgets, the security of the house we store them in is vital. Fortunately, companies like Canary and Nest Labs offer phenomenal peace of mind, courtesy of their pioneering work in home automation. Their range of products stops us from ever having to worry about what’s going on when we are away from the house. The cameras let us monitor from afar, the smoke and carbon monoxide detectors tell us whenever a problem arises, and learning thermostats ensure that whenever we are at home, the environment is exactly how we like it.
Robotic vacuum cleaners
Though some of us actually like spring cleaning, most of us would really prefer not to have to do the chores. Out of all the things we have to do, vacuuming may have to be one of the most time-consuming. But why do for yourself what a robot could do for you? Robotic vacuum cleaners require just a few buttons pushed before tackling messy floors, leaving us to get on with other more interesting endeavors. While older models rely on onboard sensors to tackle the job in a mostly random way, newer designs do incorporate mapping technology for greater efficiency. Old or new, robotic vacuum cleaners require bare minimum effort.
All of these products are creating a two-way relationship between us and the place we live in, while welcoming us to a thoughtful home and setting the modern standard for smart tech companies worldwide.
