The top smart gadgets to improve everyday living

With technology playing a huge part in everyday life for all ages, advancements in the industry have enabled people to make tasks and chores seem a little easier, such as purchasing a quality yet cheap stairlift for easy access to all areas of the home. Not only is investing in smart gadgets a great way to take control of certain situations, but also a fantastic way to update your knowledge and learn new skills in the digital age. Here is our guide to the top smart gadget must-haves for everyday living. 

 

Heat Genius

For those who love the comfort of turning the heating on and feeling the warmth in the evenings, the Heat Genius gadget can give you real control over your heating by only heating parts of the house that are in use at the touch of a button.

The system, a boiler controller which would replace your old thermostat, is connected to your broadband box and each room of the house is allocated a wireless thermostat. These can all be linked to the app that is provided on either your mobile, tablet or computer, which lets you control the heating in each part of the house. With the help of the wireless sensor gadget, the smart technology can sense when the room is or isn’t being used and, over time, will programme itself to switch the heating on or off if occupied.

Not only will this save you time walking to and from your thermostat, but could also save you a large amount of money every month. 

 

Mira Digital Shower

For those who struggle to get up in the morning, in all senses of the phrase, investing in the Mira Digital Shower can make waking up in the mornings seem a little less daunting.

At the touch of a button you can use the smart, intelligent controller to adjust temperature and flow of water, and by selecting your preferred temperature the system will pre-heat the water and will pause until you are ready to step into the shower from the comfort of your bed. Additional controllers allow you to switch, set the temperature and pause the system from anywhere in the home, so you know your shower is always ready to use.

This is a beneficial, smart investment for those who are looking to expand on their mobility equipment within the home, such as deciding which stairlift would suit their home environment and their individual needs. We understand that it can take time to get from A to B with restricted mobility, and the Mira Digital Shower gadget is perfect for those who wish to take their time around the home. 

 

Expert Advice

Jess Pearn, Manager at online property platform Settled, believes gaining expert knowledge before investing in a smart gadget is just as important as its use in the home. Jess explains: “When considering the purchase of a smart home gadget it’s very easy to get excited by the new technology, but the important thing is to try and keep in mind its usefulness to you and your home.

“Choose practical fittings that not only work with your current space and type of property but could also, for instance, save you money on energy bills or add value to the price of your home. In the long run this will be much more beneficial, particularly if you are thinking of selling your home."

 

Parrot Plant Monitor

For the green-fingered individuals who love to potter in the garden or have a collection of indoor plants around the home, the Parrot Plant Monitor is the perfect gadget to look after your potted flowers and greenery.

Monitoring the health of plants is an important aspect for many within the home. The Parrot Plant Monitor sends alerts to an app on your smartphone when a plant needs a little TLC in the way of sunlight, temperature, fertiliser and moisture levels. This is a great gadget for those who want to ensure optimum indoor plant health.

 

Drop Kitchen Scale

The days of your bulky white kitchen scales are over. With the Drop Kitchen Scale you will be getting more than just ounces and pounds.

Along with a stylish design, the set of scales comes with a wonderful app with a vast range of recipes in its own recipe book. The app connects to the scales when you want to prepare a dish from the book and guides you through step-by-step, even adjusting the ingredient amount if you find you don’t have enough of a particular element for the dish.

Whether you are a novice or a keen cook in the kitchen, the Drop Kitchen Scales are a perfect accompaniment to the home, saving you time and effort when measuring quantities. 

 

Piper Smart Home Security Camera

Unfortunately, elderly residents living alone are sometimes a magnet for burglars and thieves, but the Piper Security Camera is a simple yet effective gadget that allows you to monitor spaces within the home from the app on your phone.

The camera, which also sends alerts to your phone when doors are opened and spaces are entered when you are out of the house, can also be linked to other home products such as smart lights and alarms. The device is fitted with a 180 degree HD camera which gives you access to a live video stream at any time on the app.

If the worst comes to the worst and you are a victim of burglary, then you will be sure to have some peace of mind knowing you have a high-quality video of them for evidence. 

Philips Hue Lighting

When you find it hard to get up off of your sofa or chair to turn off lights because of reflections in the TV or computer screen, then personal wireless lighting such as Philips Hue is a great smart gadget investment.

The app-controlled system schedules your lighting system when you are both in and out of the house. As well as having complete control of the system, you can also change the brightness and colour of the lighting, depending on whether you want to create a relaxed feel whilst reading or watching TV, or to initiate a warm, welcoming glow when entertaining guests.

If you have forgotten to turn your lights off or on before leaving the house, or have forgotten to leave the lights on for members of your family when they return, you can do all of this by the touch of a button.
