There are currently 83 million smart homes around the world, with 69% of those being in the United States. Indeed, smart tech is no longer just reserved for gadget lovers, or for the most luxury of homes. More and more people are embracing the latest technological developments to make their lives more enjoyable and convenient, as well as to slash energy bills.
Smart health tech
Smart health tech is developing at a rapid rate to make it easier for you to stay in great health. For example, smart air purifiers can actively measure levels of particulate matter present in the air, and turn themselves up or down as needed. The Levoit Core 400S, for instance, is a powerful purifier that can be remote controlled via the app, and synced with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant to enable voice control. Alternatively, in the bathroom, smart toilet company Coprata is developing a smart toilet able to analyze your waste and inform you of important health data. Automated stool analysis will tell users about their stool color, consistency, volume, and blood (if present). The aim is to encourage people to seek medical attention before a serious problem develops.
Smart robot cleaners
Smart robot cleaners have leveled up even further in recent years, with the best models now featuring NASA-derived navigation technology to move around your home, and dodge mess. The Roborock S7 Pro Ultra, for instance, is a top-of-the-range, multi-purpose cleaner able to vacuum and mop your floors. It can even empty and wring itself out automatically. Smart robot cleaners can go a long way to keep your home in good condition in between deeper cleans. Your carpet, for example, can hold eight times its weight in dirt. Regular deep cleaning is essential for eliminating dirt, protecting against diseases, and improving air quality. If you don’t have the time or energy for intensive cleaning, professional house cleaning services can take care of the task for you.
Although remote control blinds aren’t new, affordability and technology have improved in recent years. The SwitchBot Blind Tilt, for example, can automate your existing blinds to help improve your sleep pattern. This nifty device sits on your blind’s vertical twisting wand and can close or open the blinds as needed; it’s compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Home.
Smart home tech is developing at a rapid rate. Health tech, robot cleaners, and blinds are just some of the latest trends to look out for.
