Because why not make life a little easier?
New smart home technology and devices continue to improve everyday efficiencies and revolutionize how we live. From just about anywhere, we have the capability to adjust our home’s temperature, turn on the lights while on vacation, see what’s happening at our doorstep, let in a dog walker — and even check on said dog while they’re home alone. The even better news? Turning our home into a smart home is easier than ever. There are a variety of devices available at a wide range of price points to fit any budget.
Here are a few ways to better automate your life.
The first (and most important step) toward making your house into a smart home is purchasing the right digital assistant. This is how you will be able to sync your smart bulbs, thermostats, locks — whatever devices you choose to set up in your home. They work as great speakers, too!
Learn your home’s ideal temperature
Installing a smart thermostat is a great way to automate the temperature throughout your home. Temperatures can be controlled on mobile devices, and some thermostats learn your favorite degrees for each room and time of day. Smart home temperature options serve a financial purpose, as well as an environmental and convenience one.

Clean even while you’re away
With the ability to connect with your smart home assistant and be controlled through your smartphone, there’s no need to even be home while you clean. Smart vacuum cleaners are built with high-quality sensors that allow them to navigate and clean a home autonomously.
Take control of the mood
LED Smart Bulbs
Smart bulbs not only make controlling your lighting easier, but they also help cut your energy bill, too. Smart lights interact with a hub that’s connected over Wi-Fi, and the bulbs are programmed through your phone. Depending on which smart bulbs you choose, you change the color of the lighting with RGB lighting. You can rig a whole room with smart lights and take full control of its mood. Bonus: they last a lot longer than standard light bulbs.
