Are you on a quest to make your home more high-tech? Do you want to grab some of the hottest tech gadgets for the home in 2022 but are feeling overwhelmed at the choices available? If so, that’s okay as there’s no question consumers have tons of choices nowadays. So, let’s narrow down the options and take a look at four must-have tech gadgets that you’ll want to pick up, and that can seriously boost the enjoyment, entertainment and functionality in your home.
Upgrade Your Bathroom Mirror to a Smart Mirror
Everyone has a mirror in their bathroom, but not many are aware of the fact that smart mirrors are now available. Smart mirrors have touchscreen capabilities, allowing you to turn on an anti-fog feature and control the lighting. Some models even change color based on the temperature in the room. You’ll be shocked at what you used to consider a good mirror once you upgrade to a smart mirror.
Smart Lights Provide You with More Control
Another must-have tech gadget for the home is smart lights. While these aren’t new, they are increasing in popularity and availability which has helped to make them much more affordable than when originally launched.
When searching for the best smart lights for 2022 it will come down to several factors. You’ll need to determine the style of the light, e.g., traditional LED light bulbs or recessed lighting; the wattage; whether it can use your existing Wi-Fi network or whether it will need a bridge or hub (an added expense); the color; the lifespan; and how you can control it.
If you want the ultimate control, be sure to look for smart lights that allow you to use them through a companion app plus voice commands with a home assistant such as Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.
Give Yourself the Gift of Clean Air
While this one may not seem overly exciting, the fact that you can clean the air in an entire room in a very short time – as fast as 12-15 minutes with some models – is pretty exciting. Air purifiers are great for helping to keep viruses and germs under control but for those with allergies, asthma or who have pets in the home, they are an essential tech gadget. There are plenty of models that have Wi-Fi capability so they can be controlled remotely through an app. Some are even compatible with your home assistant.
Increase the Level of Security in Your Home
How many times have you gone to work, out for a bite to eat or run errands only to have that heart-stopping moment where you realize you forgot to lock the front door? No one wants to become a victim of a home invasion. There’s a simple solution and that is to install a smart lock, which is a lock that you can open and close remotely from an app. Just imagine the peace of mind this will offer.
All of these tech gadgets are must-haves for homeowners looking to elevate the functionality in their homes.
