How to Turn Your Home into a Smart Home

The world around us is constantly changing. We have smartphones and smart cars. You could not have possibly thought that your home would be neglected from the ‘smart’ trend. From smart lighting features to improving the security of your home, here are a few simple ways of how you can turn your home into a smart home.

Voice Control

Whether it is Google Home or Amazon’s Echo, these devices give us an excuse to talk to ourselves, not that we need one! You can get these home personal assistants to do just about anything for you from switching on your favourite music to ordering your takeaway dinner. The system can pick up words and phrases to perform these tasks and life has become so much simpler having these little gadgets around.

Controlling your Security System

Although home security systems are not new, being able to control them from anywhere and everywhere, is. You can limit access to specific areas in your home or select to be notified if there’s unusual movement in the house when you are not there.

You can set up cameras in every room and access them from your smartphone when you are not home. This new way to control your security system is slowly phasing out house alarms. Who needs the blaring noises in the middle of the night anyway?

Smart Air Conditioners

Malta is known for its hot summer months, so it is simply a dream come true to enter your home, after enjoying a dinner at a restaurant, to already cool and air-conditioned rooms. Your smart A/C can be programmed from your smartphone and you can even adjust temperatures and timings.

Smart Lighting

Although adjusting your lighting to smart lighting can be more costly, its convenience is worth it. You can set daily lighting schedules while you can also control lighting from outside of your home.

You can control the room’s brightness, change the bulb colour, and turn the lighting on and off to the sound of your voice.

Invest in Smart Plugs

This is probably the simplest of them all. Smart plugs can be controlled by an app on your phone which will enable you to turn on and off any appliance. You can control it yourself or set schedules for when you want appliances to be switched on and off. Now’s the time to have your coffee ready while you are still in bed! Simply plug your coffee machine to the smart plug and, voila! Coffee is served!
