The market of home automation devices has grown dramatically in the last few years. These are devices designed to make homes smarter and more convenient, thus making our daily lives easier and allowing us to save time in mundane tasks.
The latest devices include light control, climate control, security, entertainment and more. All it takes is the push of a button, and your home will do what you want it to do. If you’re still waiting to include these smart electronics in your home, consider that we’re in a tipping point in the US. This year alone, over 30 million smart home devices were installed in homes all over the US.
Don’t wait any longer to make your home smarter and more practical. Here are 4 popular electronics you should have at home!
- Voice Activated Lighting
Voice activated lighting is possible thanks to smart bulbs, which are voice activated, making lighting control that much easier and convenient. If you want to dim the lights, shut them down and turn them on, all you need to do is say the word and it will be done for you. Smart bulbs pair effortlessly with Google Home apps.
All you’ll need to do is buy them, screw them on, and then they will appear in your app. After that, you’ll be able to enjoy voice activated lighting at home. There are many modes you can configure and you and your family will have a blast using this convenient smart home feature.
- Air Purification System
Optimizing the air quality within your home has never been easier. If you want to make sure every breath you take is fresh and healthy, Aura Air will help you do that. This smart home air purification system will allow you to detect Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in the air, as well as allergens, smoke, and carbon monoxide.
When detected, the app will launch a purification process tailored to the threat so it can be eliminated for good. This means you won’t have to call a guy or spend extra money making sure the air you breathe at home is clean and healthy. This is particularly useful for people who suffer from allergies or asthma, as it will allow you to control the quality of your air easily.
- Home Cameras
Artificial Intelligence is no longer the stuff of science fiction. We already have it in our lives and it helps us make it easier. Voice-enabled devices such as Google Home, Alexa, Amazon Echo, AirPlay and Sonos are great examples of how AI is so present in our daily lives. Now, AI can be even more useful because they can be transformed into smart cameras.
An example of this is smart imaging. Smart imaging allows our smartphone cameras and other mobile devices to recognize foods and even set cooking time or oven temperature so we can heat that particular dish to perfection. Another great feature would be Smoke Detective, which is an app that turns devices with cameras into smoke alarms by using smoke detecting AI algorithms. In other words, the cameras on your mobile devices can be used for a lot more than just taking pictures or recording video!
- Get Rid of Porch Pirates
Have you ever ordered something on Amazon only to find that it has been stolen from your porch before you even got a change to know it was there? If the answer is yes and you don’t want this to happen ever again, then you’ll love the Key for Garage application. Video surveillance and doorbell cameras can provide proof if something like this happens to you, but Amazon has taken it one step further. They’ve partnered with the Chamberlain Group to make sure you enjoy theft-proof delivery.
This device can be easily installed in your garage door opener and it will allow delivery people to drop packages inside your garage in a secure way. They won’t have access to your home, only to the garage, and they will close things behind them to make sure your package is safe. The app will also alert you about deliveries, so you always know what’s going on.
