Are you looking to update the appliances in your home? Here are some popular smart home technologies to invest in to help you turn your home into a smart home.


Smart Shower

Smart showers are becoming a popular option in modern homes. Users can set their preferred water temperature, outlet, flow rate, shower duration, and much more through the smart showers control display, smartphone app, or voice command. There are many benefits of investing in a smart shower for your home.


One of the main benefits is that you can set a consistent water temperature. Have you ever been in the shower when someone flushes the toilet or turns on the faucet and the temperature changes drastically? With a smart shower, the valve will automatically mix the incoming water to maintain a steady temperature.


Another benefit of smart showers is safety. With the temperature control settings, you can preset the temperature for your kids showers so you do not need to worry about it being too hot. Smart showers can make your life easier, speeding up your morning routine, and save you money by reducing water and energy use by pre-setting shower duration times for your household.

 

Smart Sliding Doors

Smart sliding doors and other technological advancements can help you update your home design. By investing in smart sliding doors, you are creating a more convenient, hygienic, and stylish entryway to your home. Smart sliding doors systems such as Autoslide allow your existing sliding doors to open automatically as you approach them and close behind you. They make life easier when entertaining guests and are great for pets too. By purchasing Autoslide’s Pet Tag System you can give your pets the freedom of going in and out as they please. 


Often, children or even adults forget to close the door behind them. With automatic sliding doors, you won’t have to worry about accidentally leaving the doors open when the air conditioning is on and letting the warm air in. They can also prevent a security breach by allowing you to turn off the automatic opening and closing of the doors. Smart sliding doors are aesthetically pleasing, sound in structure, and are convenient for your friends and family.


Smart Appliances

There are many different smart appliances and new technologies such as smart refrigerators that can help you transform your kitchen into a more tech savvy space. For example, Samsung’s Family Hub refrigerator has a large display that lets you look at a calendar, leave notes, look up recipes, play music, and more. It has a voice controlled assistant similar to Alexa, just for your fridge.


Additionally, you can download the fridge manager app to control the temperature of the fridge. It even has interior cameras that allow you to view your fridges’ content from anywhere on your smartphone. Now, you’ll neve be left wondering whether you’re out of eggs or milk. Smart refrigerators are great for families who are always on the go.

 

Smart Security

Is your home security system complicated and out of date? Installing a smart security system in your home might be the right option for you. There are many different types of smart security systems. They can be controlled through an app on your smartphone, voice commands, or manually. Smart home security systems can include motion detectors, door and window sensors, security cameras, and more. Smart home security systems give security alerts, lock and unlock doors, plus 24/7 access to camera footage. All of this allows you to control your home security even when you are away.

 

Smart Thermostat

With a smart thermostat, you can make the most of your heating and cooling system without wasting money or energy. You can create automatic and programmable temperature settings based on your daily schedule, weather conditions, and your personal heating and cooling needs.


Smart thermostats are able to learn and adapt to a household’s patterns and adjust heating and cooling according to whether your home is occupied or is about to be. This reduces the amount of energy used when nobody is home for a significant period of time, and can save you money by only cooling and heating the home as needed. They are easy to install and can be bought at any smart tech store. Smart thermostats can be controlled by a phone, tablet, smart speaker, or other internet-connected devices.
