Let’s face it, technology is everywhere. You can’t go any place without seeing someone on an iPad, tablet, iPhone, android or computer. You can try to ignore it but it’s not going anywhere. Our phones are smarter than us or at least that’s what they are telling us.
Now, you can have a smart home. That’s right, your home can now be smarter than you. Well, maybe not but it can be really cool. The gadgets in your home can now turn on your heat, air, lights or tv. You don’t have to remember to do anything, anymore. There’s an app for that!
Say for instance, you don’t want your home to be hot when you arrive home from work but you also don’t want your air running all day while you aren’t there. Nest has a smart thermostat that you can set to turn on right before you get home. Not only that, it also learns the temperatures you like and programs itself. It’s intuitive. It works with your wifi and is very easy to install. Nest even has certified contractors who will come out and set it all up for you at a reasonable fee. You can change the temperature right on your phone no matter where you are.
Your home can even tell you if your fire alarm is going off and where the problem is in your home right on your phone. If your battery is running low on your alarm, it will even tell you that. Nest Protect is the coolest fire alarms around.
Have a pet? Well, now you can really know the secret life of pets with your Nest Cam. You can watch your pet all day long in real time right on your phone. You can even talk to your pet. It really helps if you have separation anxiety.
Who needs light timers when you have Hue. Hue is your own personal wireless lighting system. It can wake you up, welcome you home, enhance your entertainment experience and improve your mood. You can do so many things with your HUE lights. I never thought I’d ever play with my lights. Such a cool conversation piece. You can even control your lights from anywhere all from your phone.
