Incorporating Tech Into Your Home

Incorporating Tech Into Your Home
  • Opening Intro -

    Technology is a big part of our lives.

    It helps to shape the way we organize our day, communicate with friends, family and colleagues, do our jobs and spend our leisure time.

    Increasingly, it's able to change the way we run our day-to-day lives and the tasks we perform around our homes.


Want to know what you could and should do to incorporate tech into the home? Consider the following:

Wireless to cut the cables

The latest technology gobbles up Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and that allows you to rid your rooms of unsightly cables. Going wireless is a great way to show how there can be many benefits to embracing the latest technology. A hi-tech house should be a tidy house.

Exert control

As well as cutting down on cables, you can also cut the amount of remote controls you need to operate your gadgets. Smart home hubs connect to all of your gadgets and can allow them all to be controlled by an app. This might sound futuristic but it’s perfectly possible and should streamline the way your home tech operates. Alternatively, devices such as your boiler allow you to perform a similar function, with their own bespoke smartphone app to monitor and control your thermostat temperature from afar.

Solve a problem

The best bits of tech should enhance the way you live your life, either by offering something that you can’t already do or by making an existing task much simpler. Multi-room speaker systems, smart fridges and kettles that you can control from afar and robot vacuum cleaners that can get on with the task unassisted can all help ease the burden on your weekly list of chores and generally make domestic life that bit smarter for you.

Locks and security

Safety and security are also important and technology can be a big help here. Camera systems can ensure your home is monitored when you’re not there and give you the piece of mind of being able to check in on things through your smartphone. Equally, the smartphone can now help you to replace the humble key. Smart locks can allow you to access your property with a key code, control who has access by letting others have temporary codes and check if your house is locked. No more going back to check the door before you go to work in the morning.

Use tech scarcely in the bedroom

This is where you’ve got to be most careful. Too much tech in the bedroom will distract you and disrupt your sleep. Ideally this would be a tech-free haven that you can retreat to at the end of a busy day, free from the distractions of emails and notifications. Set the tone by treating yourself to a plush new bed – start your search here with the Divan Beds Centre – and be strict about the tech you allow in. Sleep monitors or lamps that subtly get lighter to help you wake in the morning are allowed, the rest needs to stay downstairs.
