You probably spend the majority of your nonworking hours in your house, whether you live in a three-bedroom split level, a four-bedroom colonial, or a one-bedroom high-rise apartment. It should be both welcoming and efficient, in other words. Thanks to the growing number of smart home devices, this is now easier than ever.
In fact, 69% of American households have at least one smart home device, with 12% having multiples. With over half of customers stating convenience as a motivation for purchasing a smart home device, it is the most critical factor to consider. Smart televisions and other video entertainment devices are currently the most popular smart devices. There are, however, a slew of other options.
Let’s take a closer look at a few of these devices to see which one is right for you.
More than half of individuals who use smart home devices claim to save more than a half-hour every day. Smart doorbells are also gaining popularity since they allow you to see who is at your door without having to be there. A smart speaker is another popular gadget that allows you to listen to music and audiobooks while at home. Smart speakers can also be linked to other devices, allowing you to control them all with a single command.
You can connect smart lighting to your network and control it with voice commands. They can also be set to turn off when you’re not at home to save energy or to turn on while you’re away to give the appearance that someone is still at home.
You can keep your home safe for you and your family with the help of other technologies. For example, smart smoke and carbon monoxide detectors can not only warn you about toxic substances, but also pinpoint their location.
When you connect a smart water monitor to your water pipes, it employs ultrasonic technology to detect even the smallest leaks. Smart security systems include cameras that allow you to view or review footage from any location. The accompanying infographic has more details on several typical smart home devices.
