Smart security systems are essential nowadays. They allow you to automatically lock your doors, turn the alarm on or off, provide room-by-room surveillance and notify you if the alarm has been triggered. Exterior cameras can also be viewed and controlled from your smartphone, giving you peace of mind whether you're at home or away from home.
Although remote appliance capabilities are still being developed, current smart refrigerators have touch screens that monitor the temperature and manage the content in both the fridge and the freezer. By syncing your fridge with an app to your smartphone, you can make your grocery lists and have your detailed inventory list available while shopping. Some monitors and apps also allow you to search for recipes based on the items you have in stock.
Other kitchen appliances with smart capabilities include ovens that make pre-heating easy with the touch of a smartphone button, crockpots that allow you to adjust the settings remotely and ranges that let you ensure they’re off when you’re no longer at home.
Smart home applications aren’t limited to the indoors, however. Some swimming pools and spas allow you to control features from your phone. With a simple app, you can control the water temperature, turn on a filter or even flip the switch on landscape lighting.
Whether you’re looking for a few items to quickly integrate into a smart home system, or for more advanced applications, several home automation controller options are available at hardware and electronic stores to make your science fiction household become a reality!
