When you have a Wi-Fi system set up in your home, you can do a lot more than simply connect to the Internet through your computer or smartphone.
There are now a host of products available that can connect to your Wi-Fi, and give your home some amazing upgrades. Here are 3 of our favorite Wi-Fi products for your home to get you started.
Gone are the days of having to manually control your home’s temperature by walking over to the thermostat. A Smart Thermostat, such as the ecobee3, will learn what your preferences are, and adjust the temperature automatically, to make you more comfortable. In addition, most can connect to apps on your phone, so you can control the temperature of your home from anywhere. Imagine leaving work in the middle of Winter, and turning on your home’s heat from your car. Thanks to Smart Thermostats, you can walk into a nice and toasty house as soon as you arrive.
If you are looking to give the rooms in your home a new look, consider installing some smart lighting, such as the Phillips Hue or LIFX. These light bulbs can change colors, and allow you to adjust the mood of a room through an app on your home. Smart lighting is a great way to upgrade a room without having to do things like paint or purchase new furniture.
Home Safety Products
Lastly, home upgrades aren’t always about fun or comfort. If you want to make your home safer, products like the Nest Protect can do the trick. This device will replace your smoke and carbon monoxide detector, and can even alert you when you are not at home. In addition, it will provide you with light if it senses you walking around in the dark, and you can shut it off with ease from your phone if you happen to burn your dinner.
