Tidy with Technology: 6 Gadgets to Keep Your Home Clean and Comfy

Tidy with Technology: 6 Gadgets to Keep Your Home Clean and Comfy

I’m sure that at least once you have daydreamed about having a self-cleaning home of the future that answers your every command. You could enjoy your free time you’d otherwise spend on chores doing something you like — or perhaps, doing absolutely nothing!

Well, all you lazy cats (me included) should be happy to know that we’re getting closer to that. The advancements in technology aren’t quite as quick as we might have hoped, but they are reaching impressive levels. There’s another great thing about these gadgets that we can look forward to — they actually aren’t that unreachable price-wise and they don’t cost a small fortune. I bet the following six gadgets will definitely make it on your purchase list, so check them out.

Robot Vacuums and Mops

    Endless sweeping, cleaning, and vacuuming will soon become a thing of the past. This is unfortunate news for people who are control freaks and who actually enjoy cleaning, but I’m sure they too will get used to it in time and perhaps transfer their focus to something more useful, like helping to clean the planet.

    Dull and repetitive chores regarding cleaning floors don’t have to be on your to-do list anymore because there are robotic mops and vacuums that can take care of that. Just picture it: you turn on your brand new robotic vacuum and, well, that’s it. It does everything by itself. The only thing you need to be worried about is recharging its battery.

    Robot Litter Box

      Having a pet without having to clean up after them? Although taking care of your cat is an important part of the whole experience, I believe that the nastiest part can be skipped.

      Having a robot litter box means you don’t have to clean it because it does that by itself and reduces unpleasant odors to a bare minimum. Several different cats can use it, so if your life goal is to be a cat lady, this should be no issue for you.

      Window-washing Robot

        I find this particular chore very difficult because I can’t ever manage to get my windows spotless — there is always some kind of stain I can’t seem to get rid of no matter what I try. Besides, hanging half your body out of a window that’s several stories high doesn’t sound like a good idea.

        Another smart little gadget to add to your robot fleet is a window-washing robot. They come with automatized and manual controls, so you can go either way. They are really useful when it comes to home use, but work for offices and cars as well.

        Humidity Monitor

          When regulating atmosphere in your home, you probably think about dimming the lights and putting on some music, and all though these two are important factors of how you feel in your home, you should also have your health in mind.

          Temperature and humidity levels are another two things you should pay attention to because they affect both your health and your mood. Monitoring and regulating them is quite simple, all you need to do is get yourself a smart gadget or a smartphone app.

          Smart Plant Pot

            Greenery affects a home positively in many ways – your mind finds it refreshing, it takes care of your air, it looks great as an ornament, and you can even eat it. Scientists are coming up with various shapes and models of smart pots where you can grow your favorite plants, but my absolute favorite are pots you can install on your walls.

            Imagine having fresh spices on your kitchen walls and randomly picking the ones you need while cooking, or having fresh flowers in your living room that freshen up your air — whatever room you place them in will be enriched.

            Smart Bed

              I personally have extreme difficulties with waking up on time. No matter how many alarms I set, I somehow manage to ignore them or hit snooze for hours. This can be very frustrating, especially if you want to have a career, because enjoying late mornings isn’t really a highly desired characteristic for employees.

              Having a smart bed that takes care of your sleep by regulating temperature and measuring your sleep behavior can be a real game-changer, for me particularly, and I’m sure that all of you who have similar problems will agree with me. The best thing about smart beds is that they wake you up when your dream phase is complete and they do so slowly, so there’s no need for morning anxiety. Who needs a life partner when you can have this bed?

              This is just my short list of robots and gadgets I consider necessary, but they make a nice robotic army, don’t they? I can’t wait to see what else will available soon — we’re getting close to having a real Jetsons family home of the future.

              8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

              8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

              We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

              On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

              Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

              1. Smart Door Locks

              A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

              2. Smart Kitchen Tools

              Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

              3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

              If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

              4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

              These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

              5. Nest Thermostat

              This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

              6. Smart Lighting

              Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

              7. Google Chromecast Ultra

              Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

              8. Canary

              This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
