<span>Sunday Morning Tip for Oct 07:</span> Old Home Updates: How Technology Can Bring Your House out of the Stone Age
  • Opening Intro -

    Your old home doesn’t have to stay stuck in the 17th century.

    In fact, there are updates you can do that are simple and cheap that will make your old home feel like new.

-------------------------------------

Try New USB Receptacles

The chances are, you have a device that uses a USB power cord. You probably need to use it with a box that plugs into your regular receptacle now. Getting USB ones are very easy and they can be very inexpensive. You can spend as little as a couple dollars and make a huge upgrade to your home. You’ll never have to search for a box or sacrifice an outlet to charge your phone.

Get Smart about Power Cords

When you use smart power cords, you can reduce the strain on your energy use. By using power cords by Americord, you can make sure that you’re going to be able to use them the right way. Smart power cords are easy to hook up to a smart home system so you can automate when they run and what time they do different things.

Think of Your Locks

The locks on your doors can be upgraded using technology! Smart doorknobs with locks are a very simple upgrade you can make to your home. You might not even need to use any power tools to make the change! Investing in smart locks is another way you can upgrade your home using technology that’s able to connect with other smart home features.

Use a Smart Doorbell

While you’re upgrading your doorknob, it might be a good idea to upgrade that doorbell. You can get a smart doorbell that has a camera in it. Using it, you’ll always be able to see when someone is at your door and who it is before you open it. The camera system makes it easy to just check on your phone if you want to figure out who is at the door!

Automate Your Lifestyle

A smart home is fairly easy to do and can increase the quality of your life. You can hook most smart devices up using a hub and operate everything from your phone.

Using technology is easy and can really increase your quality of life in your home. If you know what upgrades to make to the technology in your home, you might be better able to figure out the best way to improve your home!
