For many of us, technology is an integral part of our daily lives, from smartphones to smart refrigerators. Almost anything in your home can now be smart. There are many excellent smart home systems you can integrate into your existing dwelling, making life easier and creating the aesthetic appeal you are looking for. From speakers and communication devices to home security systems, here are five smart home systems that can make your home aesthetically appealing.

Always the Perfect Temperature

When you connect your thermostat to your home Wi-Fi, you can control it from anywhere with your smartphone. You can keep your thermostat high while you are away from home to save energy and money. When you are on your way, adjust the thermostat to the perfect temperature by the time you arrive. But some systems can learn from your habits and adjust themselves. A smart thermostat can remind you to change filters. The design of these thermostats is attractive and minimal — visible, but not disruptive to your home décor.

Security From Any Location

Home security systems aren’t new to the market, but they have gotten a smart upgrade in recent years. You can find attractive smart home security systems that you can activate or deactivate from wherever you are. You can even find security systems that don’t require drilling into the walls if you rent your home. Many systems blend in and are not obvious unless you know where to look, but still allow people to see and secure their homes from thousands of miles away.

Light up Your Life

LED Tube lights are the bare minimum, to add extra you need integrated and smart lights to allow you to set the mood, no matter what the mood is. You can create a smart lighting system for little money if you’re on a budget, or you can spring for a more expensive version. Either way, you may not have to touch a switch again if you don’t want to. The sound of your voice or touching a button in an app can dim or increase the lighting. If you forgot to turn off a light and you’re miles away, a few taps on the phone can fix that. And many smart light bulbs can even change colors for a fun and easy way to liven up a fun party.

Immersive Sound Systems

Smart speakers do far more than play music. Many of these speakers can adjust your lights and remind you to take your medication. You can order toilet paper and play your favorite band with simple commands. The speakers are small and fit in with your home. In most cases, you only need to plug the speakers in and do a simple setup. In no time, you’re interacting with your home like never before.

Smart Systems Can Work Together

Some smart home systems have moved beyond their original functions. Third-party companies integrate the systems into new products or design their products to speak to other home systems. Your refrigerator can tell you when you’re low on food. It can even help you make a grocery list and order the groceries. Other systems could use motion detectors to sense when you’re getting out of bed in the morning. By the time you’re stumbling into the kitchen, the coffee pot is already brewing.

There are other home systems with a minimal profile that will tell you if you are in danger. A smart carbon monoxide detector or smoke detector can send alerts to your phone that something is wrong. Integrating these life-saving devices in a smart system increases safety for everyone, especially for those with disabilities who might not hear or see them going off. These detectors can alert a designated contact who can check on the home or alert authorities.

Smart Gets Stylish

You don’t have to sacrifice form for function with today’s smart home systems. Whether you’re looking at lighting or searching for the perfect sound, you’ll find something that fits your aesthetics. Even home security can be an attractive addition or hidden peace of mind, depending on your tastes. The smart home has become the new essential for your first apartment.
