This year more than ever, technology has become an integral part of the way we live, work, and relax. But, scrolling through the endless items available can be daunting. The perfect gift for both new homeowners and those looking for ways to transform their home into a smart home, here are three devices to add a bit of technology to your home.
Transform your TV into a Smart TV
Instead of purchasing a brand new television, transform your current one into a smart television with the Chromecast with Google TV. This device allows you to stream content from your phone, tablet, or computer and now with a remote now equipped with voice via Google Assistant. This handy device that comes in three colour ways (Snow, Sunrise and Sky) has been a game-changer for our workouts allowing us to stream classes on YouTube and for movie nights at home binge-watching our favorite shows through the device.
Digitize your Thermostat
Especially now, when the weather is fluctuating on a daily basis, a digital thermostat is a great way to control the heat and air conditioning in your home with a tap on your device. The ecobee3 lite is a great option because it can help you save up to 23% on annual energy costs, compatible with a number of devices, and is ENERGY STAR® certified.
Keep your front porch secure
With the rise of package thefts, homeowners are looking for ways to keep their front door sure. Something as simple as a video doorbell is a great way to monitor your home and know who is knocking from anywhere. Over the last few years, the technology for this has increased making there more and more options from ring for you to install at your home.
