What do you credit for your home being a wonderful place to live? For me, it’s the new tech that I purchase and invest in every year. Say what you will about technology, but it’s certainly making home life easier. If you want proof of this, just look around your own house, the evidence is there. Here are some of the best pieces of tech and equipment in my home that I just couldn’t live without.
I love waking up in the morning and immediately being able to pick my phone up and blast some tunes through a nearby speaker. It doesn’t even have to be in the same room. As long as it’s close enough to pick up the connection from my phone, it works. It’s a great way to wake up and give yourself some extra energy. Of course, that’s not the only benefit you get from Bluetooth speakers. I also love the fact that I can have a complete surround sound setup without any wires. In the past, if you wanted your home to feel like the movies, you needed a maze of different wires running around the room. Now there’s no need because everything is connected digitally.
Disappearing Oven Doors
Anyone with kids or a small kitchen should love this little advancement in tech. I think slide away oven doors have only been on the market for a few years. Though I’m sure, restaurants have had them for decades. If you don’t have one, you need to look for an oven like this on the market right now. Since the oven door slides away out of sight, it allows you to put your hand in without the worry of getting burned. It also makes cooking simple in a cramped kitchen. The secret behind this tech is the heavy duty drawer slides. They allow the oven door to be moved in this way and it’s just amazing.
Smart Tech? You Bet
A lot of people scoffed at the idea of smart tech. I know, I was one of them! But there’s no doubt that after some adjustments it’s made home life better. Admit it, you love the fact that you can now check what’s in your fridge while you’re out. Or how about being able to turn the kettle on when you’re still getting out of bed? It’s not debatable whether smart tech has made us lazier, it definitely has. But that doesn’t change the fact that it’s incredibly useful.
Finally, I’m sure there are a lot of parents that breathe a sigh of relief thanks to new tech security. After all, it’s reassuring to know that state of the art tech is between your kids and intruders. There are plenty of options to choose from here. I personally favour the idea of getting CCTV cameras for the home. You have to be careful where you point them, but once you have these setup burglars won’t even think about a break-in.
See what I mean? Tech is fantastic and has given us the real homes of the future.
