If you are considering remodeling your home, then you may be looking for tips and tricks that’ll make your remodel a success. You may also be focusing your efforts on either your bathroom or kitchen to ensure you maximize your home’s value. Another approach you can take is to install smart gadgets. By doing this, you will make your home more comfortable, and you may be able to reduce the cost of your utilities.

Install Video Cameras

Video cameras aren’t a new technology, but they’ll make your life more convenient. The cost of video cameras has dropped significantly, making it easier than ever to monitor your home while you are away. With video cameras, you can connect the feed to your mobile device, allowing you to check on your home when you are out and about. Video recording your home while you are away will also help you legally if you experience a break-in.

Use a Virtual Personal Assistant

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the next wave of technology. From Amazon’s Alexa to Apple’s Siri to Windows’ Cortana, there is a personal assistant that’s perfect for you. In fact, you can expect many manufacturers to begin including AI into their products. Late last year, LG announced they are investing in AI for their smart appliances. Soon, you’ll have one of the smartest helpers in the world helping you in your kitchen.

Purchase Smart Lights

It’s all about connectivity these days, and lights are no different. Manufacturers are making smart lights that can easily be dimmed to suit your personal preference. Beyond the cool effect, the ability to dim your lights or tell your personal assistant to turn your lights off (fingers crossed), can help you reduce the cost of your utility bill. In some instances, instead of using an automatic timer, you can control your lights remotely. With remote control, you improve your home’s security by giving the impression that someone is always home.
