3 ways a smarter home can improve your life and help you save

Robots and AI can do so much these days, why not let them help you save money? Thanks to the invention of smart home products, they can now do exactly that. Here are three devices that can help you save money around the house without much effort…

Nest Thermostat: The Nest Learning Thermostat is a smart little guy. After a few days of learning what you like, it will basically program itself. Do you like the house cooler when you’re sleeping? It’ll figure that out. Do you want your AC to run less when you’re not home? It can definitely do that for you. Independent studies have shown that Nest has saved people an average of 10% to 12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills. Plus, it will pay for itself in two years. Nest is now part of the Google store and offers a large range of products like security systems, video doorbells, smoke/carbon monoxide detectors, and a lot more!

Philips Hue: Smart lighting is awesome. Hate the way your alarm clock sounds? Try letting your lights wake you up in the morning. Forget to turn out your bedroom light when you left your house? Your Hue app can automatically turn off all your lights when you leave. Forget to leave the porch light on when you left in the evening? Don’t worry, it can cut that on when you get close to home. Want an ICEE for $0.50? Believe it or not, it can help with that too

Roomba®i7: Imagine a robot vacuum that can empty its own bin and lets you choose which rooms to clean and when. Sounds futuristic, eh? Well the future is now. Sound too good to be true? While it is expensive, aren’t most vacuums? And while it might not pay for itself in the traditional sense, it will save you time. And as they say, time is money.
