We've made it to 2021! And we believe this is the year to convert your apartment into a full-fledged smart home. Technology has never been more interconnected with the purpose of making our lives as convenient as they are right now. Take advantage of the technology available to you to bring your apartment into the future. The best part about these devices is that they are readily available with many options to fit almost any budget. Read on to see how you can transform your regular apartment into one that knows you like no other.
Smart sockets are a great way to control energy use in your household. These smart sockets are controlled by an app that allows you to turn on and off any appliance that plugs into a standard wall socket. Additionally, the app associated with most smart sockets will give you a free energy report of the appliances connected to it, so you can know exactly how much energy your various appliances are using.
Another very practical smart device for your apartment is a smart clock. Smart clocks can integrate with your calendar to suggest alarms and wake up times based on your schedule. Further, you can find the weather forecast and news in a convenient place right beside your bed when you first wake up. Smart clocks also usually come with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa to allow you to interact with your device through voice commands. How cool is that?
A very cool way to add some personality to your apartment is to install smart lights. These come in a range of forms including bulbs and strip lights. These lights connect to an app on your phone to allow you to control the colour and brightness, and timing of the lights in your apartment. Set your preferred ambiance directly from your phone.
Are you a music lover? A Smart speaker would make for a great addition to your apartment. Control all your tunes using your voice via Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, or Apple's Siri. There is no shortage of options when it comes to smart speakers, so we suggest you do your research and find an option that is the best for your apartment's size. From big to small, these speakers come in sizes to fit any apartment.
Want a device to help you be in better control of your sleep? Consider investing in a sunrise lamp to help you form regular sleeping patterns. These lamps help regulate your sleep by using light that mimics the sun. This is especially useful in the winter months, when sunlight in the mornings is scarce. Additionally, these devices also act as alarm clocks and often have nature sounds pre-programmed to help you get to sleep the night before. Get rest like you've never gotten before.
