Gadgets every homeowner needs

Sometimes you can get a bit too caught up in all the latest tech and find yourself buying all the newest gadgets without really needing them. They make a gadget for everything these days and sometimes you have to try and filter it down to the truly useful ones. 

In fact, you might not even be aware of some of the most valuable gadgets you can get for your home, such as an app to monitor noise levels to constantly keep you informed of what is going on, no matter where you are. Here are our top picks for the gadgets that every homeowner should invest in.

  1. Nest Thermostat

This is a pricey gadget, going for around $250, but it is worth the investment. The high cost does not seem so much when you consider that this product is estimated to last you 10 years! This smart thermostat automatically programs itself according to your preferences and your daily patterns. It shuts off your air automatically if no one is home and it can preheat the house ready for you to get home from work. The money you can save on your energy bills will also help you realise that this is one gadget that is worth the investment.

2. Amazon Echo

This voice-controlled home assistant has only increased in popularity since 2017 and now you will be hard pushed to find a house that does not have at least one Alexa speaker. It can be effortlessly integrated into almost any home automation installation (Nest Thermostat included) and links all your smart home devices into one easy-to-manage account.

3. Smart Lighting

You can order Amazon smart bulbs, but your Echo can be linked up to pretty much any brand of smart lighting. Smart bulbs are fixed into your light fittings the same as any other bulb but offer an array of colors and light intensities to choose from, meaning you can set the perfect scene for any occasion. You can turn lights on and off without having to get up from your bed, don’t we all hate that feeling of being tucked up in bed ready to go to sleep only to have to get out from under your warm blanket and go flick the light switch? You can also set timers which are particularly handy in a house with children who tend to leave all the lights on whenever they go. 

4. Robot Floor Cleaner

The most popular option is the Roomba but there are many different options so do your research and find the best one for you. There are plenty of robot vacuum cleaners out there and they have been gaining in popularity, but we would recommend you go for a device that can do more than vacuuming, but mopping and deep cleaning too. Multipurpose floor cleaners can save you time and hassle whilst often doing a better job at cleaning the floors than any of us are capable of doing so by hand. It is another device that can be controlled via an app and can be put to work from wherever you are.
