The ever advancing course of modernity has seen numerous breakthroughs in technological advancements, from smartwatches to app controlled utilities. Consequently, more and more items are being made that can help our homes transition into the contemporary age. Although some pieces of tech are more futurist than others, there are now no end of gadgets to adorn your home, the only issue being our budgets.
To demonstrate just how modern your home can be, here are the top five gadgets that every home should have, ideally.
Laptops and Computers
Even though virtually every home owns a laptop or desktop computer, this will always be a must have on any top gadgets list, for our computers connect us for both work and recreationally uses.
Not to mention that not just any old laptop will do in the ideal digitalised household. By purchasing one of the best devices on the market, you can turn your home into an entertainment centre, with sites like the multifaceted Betway and their very entertaining collection of online activities.
Similar to computers always lurking in our living spaces, so too do house plants, with the only difference being that a lot of us tend to neglect the flora in our homes, which is where plant monitors come in. While not the most obvious gadget to list, they can send notifications to your smartphone to inform you of your plants needs, meaning you know exactly when to water and where to move your plant to.
Having this invaluable information at your fingertips can result in a much healthier environment for your plant, and in turn ourselves, for plants are known for aiding our mental health.
When it comes to technology, we can often overlook our bathrooms and kitchens and their obvious need of gadgets; showerheads with built in speakers enable you to listen to all your favourite songs without the need of plugging in your sound system, or risk wetting your mobile.
You can stream playlists from your devices, and even have the option to remove the speaker and use it elsewhere once you’re finished. With so many of us enjoying a sing-along when we shower, there are even pre-made playlists available to make our cleaning regime that little more fun when we need it most.
As being green is at the fore of a lot of societal concerns right now, many homes are looking for ways to monitor their energy uses in a bid to change their habits. By opting to use attachable water meters, you can see firsthand exactly how much water you’re wasting every time you make a drink or when you cook.
Even though many abodes use water meters, normally we don’t receive instant information as we use our taps, meaning we can overlook how much water use. Tap accessories, while sounding the stuff of sci-fi, inform us how much we are pouring and how much that waste costs, helping us to curb overuse.
