There’s no shortage of smart upgrades you can buy for your Fayetteville, North Carolina, home. Although technology is supposed to make everyone’s life easier, when you can’t figure out how to use it correctly, it just gets annoying. Luckily, you can find plenty of smart upgrades that are easy to use even if you aren’t tech-savvy.
Smart thermostats are much easier to use and program than traditional programmable thermostats. These thermostats have an intuitive and easy-to-use interface that allows you to control the temperature from your smartphone or tablet. You can set it up in advance or control it from your device at any moment.
Air Quality and Smoke Detectors
Air quality and smoke detectors have come a long way since the traditional sensors that annoyingly beep when the batteries are low or when you burn something on the stove. Newer models are much more efficient. Some connect to your smartphone, while others are more traditional. Instead of beeping, however, they alert you with a voice over a speaker, which feels a little more humane without sacrificing the sense of urgency.
Smart Water Sensors
Leaks and floods are a massive headache. They damage your property and cause mold problems that are dangerous to your health and hard to eliminate. If your home is in a flood zone, or you’re concerned about water damage from a pipe bursting, invest in a Wifi water sensor.
These sensors plug into the wall and communicate directly with your smartphone. You don’t need an expensive kit or complicated technology; you’ll simply receive an alert on your phone if the sensors come into contact with water.
