The thing about home technology is that few people know about what’s on offer on the market! That means many consumers are using obsolete and inefficient tech in their homes. If you want to bring your home kicking and screaming into the 21st century, there are plenty of ways to transform your abode’s tech.

Those of you serious about using the latest technology should continue reading this blog post. That’s because it’s packed full of useful and interesting ways to make your home smarter! Here is what you need to know:

Robot cleaners

I don’t know about you, but one of the things I hate about living in a house is keeping it clean all the time! I must admit; I’m guilty of not spending as much time on my cleaning chores as I should. Like most people, I lead a busy life and have precious little spare time to devote to household cleaning.

Sure, I could hire a cleaner to do the work for me. But I don’t earn enough money to afford such a luxury. And I’m also not too keen on the idea of hiring a cleaner for my home. If that sounds like you, there is one way that technology can give you a helping hand.

Robot cleaners can help with vacuuming and window cleaning chores! There’s the Roomba for your vacuuming tasks and the Winbot for your window cleaning duties. Soon your entire home can clean itself!

Smart appliances

Most homes have washing machines, dishwashers and fridge freezers. They are affordable machines and must-have devices for any modern home. And they are also energy-efficient so that your electricity bills are lower.

Tomorrow’s generation of appliances is “smart.” But, what does that mean? In a nutshell, you can use a mobile device to control various aspects of each machine without going near it in a physical sense.

According to Issa Asad from Florida, today’s smartphones can adjust smart appliance settings remotely! Let’s say that you’ve got a heating system connected to an Internet-enabled thermostat.

If you are coming home after a trip abroad, and it’s the middle of winter, you can use your phone to turn the heating on for you before you get home. That way, you can arrive at a warm and welcoming house!

Bluetooth entertainment system

The great thing about Bluetooth is that it allows two devices to “talk” to each other wirelessly. Setting up the connection between two devices is only done once. That’s because both devices will remember each other and establish an automatic link.

Today’s modern entertainment systems can connect to TVs, set-top boxes and more. Using your smartphone, you can listen to Spotify on your home stereo via a Bluetooth link. You can even watch the latest movies or watch TV programmes with the audio playing through your Hi-Fi system. All of which can get controlled using your mobile phone!

One of the obvious benefits of such a Bluetooth-based stereo system is negating the need for lots of remote controls!
