The idea of creating smart home technology stems from this single thought: What if I can connect all my devices to the internet? And because we are now living in an era where technology is at its prime, humanity could answer that question with a resounding yes. Today, we will give you a rundown of the hottest technologies designed to ease your life at home.
Wireless LED Bulbs
One of the most accessible smart home technology is the wireless LED light bulb. This can be the perfect replacement for the usual incandescent bulbs that we normally use at home. Wireless bulbs can be connected to mobile phones, fitness trackers, and smartwatches. You can also control it with just a movement of your hand or the sound of your voice. They also have a longer life span and are proven to be energy-efficient.
Other smart bulbs can change into any color that you like. But a majority of them have the capacity that is equivalent to 60 watts of their incandescent counterparts.
Since wireless LED bulbs use different types of technology, you can expect that they would be a bit pricier than standard bulbs. The price is at least USD 10 and can go up to USD 30, depending on the brand.
The bediator is the cooler and more energy-efficient counterpart of a radiator. It is a type of bed that uses advanced heating technology useful during the harsh winter season to avoid hypothermia. If you are concerned about the oil price but still want to be warm during cold days, this latest innovation is the best choice for you.
A mediator acts as a retractable floor that a push-button on the side can activate. Surrounding it are green holes that help circulate warmth during winter and cool air during summer. It also features a LED display that shows information such as the date and room temperature.
Hybrid Laptop and Data Backup
Before, when deciding on which gadget to use, our choices were limited to either a laptop, a tablet, or a mobile phone. It was never both of the same things. But that has changed now that a hybrid between laptops and tablets has emerged in the market. They call it 2-in-1.
A 2-in-1 is a touch-powered detachable tablet or convertible laptop. It has a dual touch screen feature and a physical keyboard if you want to use a touchpad and full-stroke keys. The three leading 2-in-1 manufacturers nowadays are HP, Dell, and Lenovo.
Since many are now working at home, most of our work information and files are stored either in our computers or on a central cloud database provided by the employers. However, clouds can be tricky and are prone to a data breach. To make sure all your data is secure, you now have the option to use a second cloud and an o365 email backup that is not 100% dependent on Microsoft. You can use these back up to protect either your work data or personal files.
Drought is happening almost everywhere, and the need to urgently address that global issue prompted the invention of the smart faucet. Using a smart faucet is an affordable way to conserve water and help the environment while leaving a minimal carbon footprint. This gadget is dubbed to be hygienic, uncontaminated, and eco-friendly because it can save around 15,000 gallons of water per unit per year.
The smart faucet is also equipped with efficiency sensors and a temperature gauge, two things that will allow you to control and monitor the water usage in your home, especially in the bathroom and kitchen.
Z-Wave Wireless Window and Door Sensor
This latest innovation will revolutionize the way we protect our homes and businesses. Z-wave-powered devices allow you to remotely monitor your windows and doors thru your smartphone. If there is an intruder alert or forced break-in, the device will send you a real-time alert by email or text message. It also lets you confirm if all your doors are kept locked and secured even if you are not home.
Another selling point of Z-wave devices is that it is light and easy to conceal. It is 50% thinner than the traditional sensors that people have been using in their homes. Z-wave devices exhibit both top-of-the-line functionality and sleek style.
Our curiosity gave birth to the Internet of Things (IoT), the backbone of all smart homes and automation. IoT brings the full capability of data processing, analytics, and the internet to physical objects that we use in our daily lives. With technology, we can effectively perform our daily tasks and duties in a way we have never done before.
