Your home is your castle, so they say. It is important to take care of your home, but sometimes there might be chores or habits that you wish were easier, or that you didn’t have to worry about at all. TechQuarters, a company that provides outsourced IT support London-based businesses rely on, is a big fan of technologies and gadgets that make everyday life easier. They gave us their picks for the most useful technologies to implement in your home:

Smart Lightbulbs

There is a big trend these days of automating your household. There are advantages and disadvantages to doing this – one of the easiest ways to try out home automation and see if it is right for you is with smart lights on your deck. 

Smart lights refer to lightbulbs that have been embedded with a small amount of computing ability that enables them to be controlled in a range of ways – for instance, some smart lightbulbs are able to change their color; almost all smart lightbulbs are dimmable, and can be made to turn on and off at certain times throughout the day. Smart lights usually connect to your mobile phone, allowing you to control them and set a schedule using an accompanying mobile application.

Home Security Systems

You might feel that the chances of your home being broken into and entered is very small – but sometimes it is better to be safe than sorry. There are lots of sophisticated security systems available on the market, and many of them are very smart, with sophisticated technology built into them.

Home security systems are not a new thing – they have been around for a long while. But the latest generations of security systems are very smart, taking advantage of internet-connected security devices, that can include security cameras, motion detectors, non-he washers, sirens, door locks, and door sensors. As these systems are also internet-connected, they are capable of sending alerts and notifications to your phone. With the right smart home security system, you can ensure that every aspect of your home is protected.

Robot Vacuum Cleaner

Many people agree that cleaning the house is their least favorite chore. While it is not yet possible to automate every cleaning chore with technology, there is one that has been around for a long time – robot vacuum cleaners.

You might have heard of roombas, which were one of the earliest robot vacuum cleaners on the market. Some people consider these to be a gimmick, but the technology has advanced so much that many robot vacuum cleaners can actually rival more traditional vacuum cleaners in terms of suction power. They are definitely on par with cordless vacuum cleaners. Robot vacuum cleaners make weekly cleaning sessions easier, and also enable you to do a quick clean whenever you need it.

Mesh Wi-Fi

The internet is becoming a really common resource for most households. Whether its for gaming or streaming film and TV on your free time, or whether you need internet to access remote learning, or to work from home, the internet has many uses. The way most people access the internet is through Wi-Fi – but sometimes Wi-Fi can be unreliable as it is a wireless technology. However, Mesh Wi-Fi is one of the ways that you can guarantee good internet connection throughout your house. It works by using multiple routers, instead of just one, to spread the Wi-Fi connection across every room in your house. If you have a family where every wants to use the internet at the same time, this can make sure nobody is frustrated.
