The amount of technological advancements in every aspect of our lives is already starting to get difficult to keep track of. There are AIs that do almost everything for us from turning on the lights to locking our doors.
With the abundance of new technologies that make home life easier, we surprisingly still come to technologies that make us question just how far these technological advancements can go in terms of creating a home life that will not require us to do much.
Will there be a time when the only thing we need to do at home is breathe and everything else will be up to AIs and the smart appliances they control? That may not sound appealing to all of us, but there are actually people who would like the sound of that.
Since we are talking about impressive home technologies, we will give you a look into the ones that got our attention:
1. Vacuum cleaners
Remember when we used to have to bend our backs to clean the floor? It is known that vacuum cleaners are not tall enough for us to stand up straight while using them. Add that to the strain it puts on our arms and legs since we need to move around the place we are cleaning in order to suck in all the dust.
But today, cleaning the floor is much easier with robot vacuum cleaners that do the cleaning for you. What is even better is the fact that they do not get tired as we do, and they do not get distracted by the little things they notice while cleaning. As we all know, spotting this one thing you have been looking for while cleaning can be a time-consuming distraction.
Robot vacuum cleaners are wired to detect and navigate the space and its obstacles. They will not run into walls, furniture, and humans. They are also fully capable of emptying their own bins.
You also do not need to worry about making time for floor cleaning. Why? Robot vacuum cleaners have time scheduling features you can use to set when the vacuum should do its job. Pretty clean, huh?
2. Temperature controllers
If you get sticky hot summers and bone-freezing cold winters, you are no stranger to working with cooling and heating systems. Getting separate systems to achieve the right heat and cold during appropriate seasons can cost a lot of money in terms of installation, repairs, and overall maintenance.
With a centralized system controlling the home’s indoor temperature, you have the power to set minimum and maximum temperatures based on your own preferences. These temperature controllers are also smart enough to adjust based on the time, season, and current weather.
If, for example, you have a smart heater and would like to feel warmth during the cold days, your centralized AI system will work around the heater for you.
Having them is completely convenient, if you feel cold while asleep, you will not have to get up and tone down the air conditioning.
3. Door and window sensors
A home cannot be one without ample security. Today, we have wireless window and door sensors that can spot movement and inform you if someone is trying to get access inside your home.
Of course, this will not pose a problem for people you actually know who are trying to get in. You can even talk to them even if you are not home through camera and microphone through smartphone apps, email, and text messages that will be sent by the sensor’s system to your phone to alert you.
Moreover, if you are prone to accidentally leaving your doors unlocked, the smart sensors can assure you if you have to get back and lock them.
4. Leak detectors
Leak detectors are powered by heat-detecting equipment to help you find and fix leaks within your home’s plumbing system. We all know that finding a leak can be troublesome and take a lot of time.
With leak detectors, you can easily monitor which one of your pipes or valves are performing under good conditions, and they will tell you exactly where you should look.
Not only they will save you time, but they can also help you save money on utility bills.
Truth be told, there are probably thousands of home technologies each engineered to make home maintenance a lot easier for all of us. However, the ease they come with does not come without a price. That is one of the reasons why traditional home appliances are still important. They are accessible, tested, and more people can afford them.
