Tech-savvy homeowners have probably already started implemented innovative technologies in their homes to make it ‘smarter’, but for those who are not as clued up on technology this is something revolutionary.
Technology has become so advanced that it has found its way into our homes in order to make the home organization more flexible and easier to manage. This might surprise some of you, but innovative home technology has been implemented in homes for quite some time.
Just like everything else, however, it is needed to keep up with the latest trends.
Here are 4 innovative technologies that you can use to make your home a lot cooler:
1. Glass and windows that are waaay smarter
Imagine being in bed at night and not having to close the curtains, or waking up to a seamless morning without having to open the blinds to enjoy the sun?!
Smart windows and glass have always been something that the Hollywood universe seem to have owned, but it is not as inaccessible as people think.
Smart glass has unique and flexible characteristics that provide a certain aesthetic to homeowners. These windows have the ability to tint or un-tint as the weather or day changes. Without curtains or blinds, your house will have a modern effect that will look extremely smart.
2. Hello home-connectivity
Remember how amazed everyone was when they found out you could connect your smart-TV to your smartphone?
We are now living in an era where we can connect our entire lives with the single touch of a button. There are very little gadgets that can be integrated with your home and they are only going to increase in the years that follow.
Integrated systems can control lights, appliances, air conditioners, and security systems from your phone or tablet.
Want to cool the house down on those hot African summer days before you actually get there? Log into the app from where you are and simply switch the aircon on at home. Problem solved!
Who would ever have thought that having an internet connection was going to do all that?!
3. Smart cooking = smart living
Gone are the days where you stand in front of the pot checking the consistency of the food!
You can now control your fridges, crock pots, coffee makers and ovens from any place that has an internet connection.
Heck, you won’t ever have to worry about whether or not you put the oven off or how burnt the beef is going to be if you watch a TV show for too long.
Apart from that, you can also buy appliances that get rid of the menial tasks associated with cooking. Many appliances now weigh and measure the food for you so that you don’t have to.
Welcome to the future, chefs!
The latest addition to the integrated, high-tech home is a robot dog.
Whilst many people purchase this product as a toy, it is actually now used to replace pets inside homes. This is a dog that requires no walking or cleaning up after and it does the same as a normal dog – if not more!
Some of these artificial dogs are able to guard the house and prevent strangers from coming inside with facial recognition systems!
Can someone say woof?
Integrating your home with technology is a great way to keep your finger on the button of what is happening at home when you are not there.
And besides that, you also get to be the extremely cool neighbor that will be envied by the entire street!
