If you are looking for some cool tech features to add to your home, you have come to the right place. Here, we have a wide variety of options to recommend to you so that your home design is full of awesome tech gadgets and gizmos. We are focusing on cool items that you should think about getting if you have children in your household. It can be hard to manage to maintain a home when you have kids, but some of these cool gadgets should help, and some will be entertaining. So, let’s take a look.
The first thing that you should consider is a smart fridge. Capable of multiple functions, the smart fridge is going to be your best friend. Have you ever gone grocery shopping and can’t remember whether or not you need a certain item? If you have a smart fridge, you will be able to go onto your phone and see inside your fridge so you will know if you need that item. Pretty cool right? Not only that though, but your fridge will also send you alerts when food is either nearing its use by date, or when you are running low on a certain product. We know that kids like to eat things and not say anything, and this makes it harder to do the grocery shop. But, thanks to the new tech in the smart fridge, you are not going to have this issue.
Smart Home System
You may have heard of Alexa. If not, you might have heard of some of the other versions put out by other companies such as Apple. What these systems do is link to certain other gadgets and parts of your home, and make you able to control them through this device. It is worth keeping in mind though that you do need an internet service to be able to operate this system, so make sure that you have this before you start investing.
You and your kids are going to find this useful. For example, with Alexa, all you have to do is say her name, and then either a command or a question. You can ask her what the weather is going to be like, what time it is, and even other questions just like you would to Google. Alexa will then scour the internet to find you the answer. You can also use this cool piece of tech as a Bluetooth speaker that the whole family can enjoy!
The next thing that we are going to suggest to you is a smart bin. This piece of tech logs everything that gets thrown in the bin, and makes a list so that you know what you need to buy again. The same as with the fridge, this is going to be useful if your kids eat something without telling you. You can then put it on your shopping list and replace it. It is quite a handy piece of tech to have around your home, especially if you are not very good at keeping track of what you need!
Hue Light Bulbs
Next up on our list of exciting things is the Hue smart bulbs from Philips. These awesome bulbs change color so that you can have whatever color you want. If in one room for your kids you want to create an underwater adventure, just use a green/blue to make it feel like you are under the sea. Or, if you want to put yourself into the midst of the Lion King, use a red or orange to create a desert theme. We can practically hear the stampede coming now! Your kids are going to love this, and have the time of their lives having one room one color, and another a different one.
As well as this, you can control these bulbs from your phone with the app, or if you have a smart home system, you can link them to this too. It makes everything easier when you can control the lights in your home from the app, and you can turn the lights on in a room before you go in, meaning you don’t have to fumble around for the light switch, which is awesome.
Speakers are going to be an awesome tech addition to any home. You can get a variety of different ones and there are plenty on the market right now. If you are hoping for the surround sound experience, you need to invest in ones that can be carried around easily and put in different places around the room. You will be able to create a cinema vibe in your very own living room and your children are going to love this. Movies and TV is never going to be more exciting than when you are completely immersed in it. You will be taking the entertainment system in your home to an entirely different level, and you are going to be the envy of all of your friends.
Finally, you should consider having a remote thermostat. This means that you are no longer going to have to get up to change the temperature of your home, instead you can use an app on your phone to do this. So, if a room is too hot or too cold, simply click onto the app and adjust the temperature. Just don’t let the kids have this app on their phone, or your bill could go sky high! But it is good to have this when you have kids because it will allow you to set certain temperatures in certain rooms. This is awesome as if one kid is too hot, their room can be a little colder and vice versa. Not having to get up to change the thermostat every couple of hours is going to be great.
We hope that you have found this advice helpful, and will think about getting some of these awesome tech features for your own home.
