7 Tips for Selecting the Right Home Gadgets
From now on, we’ll be discussing 6 of the coolest and latest home gadgets that you might want to own for your home. But before diving right in, let us clarify what we’ve kept while cooking these tips up.
First of all, it’s the ‘home improvement’ that was on top of our priority list. And secondly, it’s the ‘decoration’ of your home. We’ve hardly taken any other factors in mind to keep the list clutter and distraction-free.
Are we on the same page? Fine. Let’s go to find real home gadgets according to home improvement tips and tricks.
1. Think about security devices at first
One of the basic concerns of home improvement is the safety of the front door. Merely a lock and key system was something that went out of order decades ago. In 2020, it’s time to think smart.
As long as smart locks are concerned, you can go with these options that we’ve picked up-
- Basic: Lock systems with numeric or pattern keys.
- Intermediate: Lock system with fingerprint sensors.
- Advanced: Lock systems with facial(image)recognitionn.
The cost will go up as you climb through the list. But as long as the safety is concerned, many of you won’t mind investing after it.
2. Lighten Your Walls and Edges Up
No matter if you’ve got for a fake ceiling or not, you will definitely love to have some light work done around your walls and ceiling. And the very option in this regard is- LED smart strips.
Now, there are simple LED strip lights available that come as a 5m /10m roll, and these are quite cheap as well. With a handful of color patterns, they can serve well.
But if you want to go the extra mile with this, we’d suggest going with app-controlled smart LED strips that can sync to the music or media and take voice commands. Watch out for the expense, though.
3. Get Devices that Complement Each Other
No matter if you’re planning to go for a device for home improvement purposes or a decorative intention, make sure they fit well with each other. Especially, when they are smart devices with capabilities to input and output data to and from other devices.
For example, if you get a central smart thermostat for your home, you might also be thinking of getting smart speakers, ventless air conditioners, room heaters, etc. while doing that, make sure they are within the same ecosystem.
4. Decor the Windows Up
Putting ample attention to decorate the windows of your living or bedroom is something that homeowners often miss. But if you equip them with a smart blinder and motorized shades, it will take the appeal of your home to the next level.
Now, if we talk about smart shades and blinds, they are likely to recognize the solar patterns and open/close themselves up accordingly. If you think this would become costly, then you can simply go for motorized shades without the ‘smart’ feature.
5. Get a Smart Thermostat
We don’t know if you’ve thought about turning your home into a ‘smart home’ yet. But if you have, you can’t live a day without a central thermostat.
For those who’re not familiar with this device, this is a temperature sensor device that can take actions based on what the temperature of the home is. For some of these, they can also measure the humidity and other air quality as well.
By the term ‘actions’, we mean that they can provide commands to the air controlling units like the furnace, air conditioners, humidifiers, dehumidifiers, etc.
6. Get Smart Speakers Instead of Regular Ones:
This particular tip isn’t just about getting a speaker that can connect to your TV or play music. A smart speaker is way more feature-rich than that.
Starting from receiving voice commands, it can announce important facts of your home’s HVAC condition, interact with other smart devices of the home and even can read emails or messages from your mobiles.
In this regime, there are global giants who’re producing smart speakers on a consumer-grade level. There are google home assistants, amazon’s Alexa and many more to launch in the near future.
7. Go for Robot Cleaners Instead of Regular Ones
When it comes to home improvement, one of the biggest headaches of home dwellers is the cleaning chores. Starting from the floor, you need to clean every utensils and furniture of the home on a regular basis.
Putting everything else apart, let’s focus on the floor cleaning-the most hectic ones. Instead of vacuum cleaners or brooms or wipers, you can go for robot vacuum cleaners to do the job. There are pretty budget-friendly options available from brands like Roomba etc.
Be careful while selecting the right robot vacuum, because that is a quite troubling process.
We would definitely like to enlarge the list into several couples of home improvement tips and tricks that come hand to hand to the ones that we’ve crafted. But hands down, these 6 are, of course, the basic ones that one needs to go through in order to have an organized, clean and smart home.
