4 Tech Items To Add To Your Home In 2021
Thinking of adding some automation to your home this year? Now is a better time than ever to be using the latest in tech. With new advances in-home safety, systems that take the stress out of cleaning, and gadgets to help you focus on more important things in life, there’s something for everyone! Check out our top picks below.
1. Safety first!
Before you spend on new tech items, make your home is protected to keep everything safe. There are some great smart security systems on the market. Classic Ring doorbells will record all activity outside your front door and alert you to visitors. If you’re looking to level up your security game and really feel safe at home, try a custom camera system to fit all of your needs and make sure every area is covered. Having cameras not only helps if you’re burgled but they also act as a deterrent in the first place to keep any unwanted visitors at bay!
2. Get into the Groove
Smart speakers are commonplace in many homes, but do you have the right speakers? Google’s Nest Hub Max comes with a decent-sized screen to watch the music videos you’re playing. Amazon’s Alexa Echo Studio has changed the game for smart speakers, offering better sound quality than ever before. Not only great for pumping out tunes, smart speakers offer their virtual assistants and can answer questions, set alarms, check the weather, and sync with other smart products in your home.
3. Warm and Wonderful
Smart thermostats are great to keep costs down. They can record your movements so know when to cool down and warm up. This pattern tracking means that your bills are likely to go down as you’ll be using less heating. Another great bonus is the less energy you use = the more energy-efficient you are. Money saving and better for the planet? That’s got to be a win, win!
No one likes to vacuum and if this pesky and time-consuming task causes you to stress then despair no further! A robot vacuum is the way forward. There are a range of prices and ‘smart’ levels for these hoovers so be sure to research what will be best for you before you buy. There are some great cost-effective robot vacuum options that use random movements across your floor, which generally sucks up most of the dust. If you’re got more cash to splash, new technology means the vacuum can actually map out your floor space and reach every inch. Just remember to move any wires and heavy rugs – they have great detection sensors which prevent them from falling downstairs or smashing into ledges but this means they sometimes struggle with everyday items on the floor. Overall, this is a small price to pay for a nifty gadget – after all, it is a robot, not magic!
