Choosing Your Devices
With so much on offer, it’s worth looking at the extra features before choosing your smart home devices. If you don’t have a combi-boiler, thermostats with water heating controls can help save you money – and make early-morning showers much more bearable! Some thermostats will let you have multiple heat settings for different rooms, which is great for larger houses. If you’ve got small children, look out for security systems with motion sensors so you can keep an eye on their comings and goings.
As you add more smart devices to your home, the more apps you’ll have to keep an eye on, so it’s worth investing in a hub that will allow you to control them all in one place. Whether you go for a voice-activated model or not, a hub will make life even easier! You can inter-connect your smart systems, so if your security sensors detect movement the radio will turn on, for example. You can also do things like sync your lighting with the kettle and heating, so your morning routine is more efficient.
