1. They’re Making Us Safer.
Now those home security systems have caught on to the technology craze, the process of keeping our living space safe will never be the same. Companies like ADP now offer custom alerts that are sent via text message or email to your computer, tablet, or smartphone. With these messages, you’ll be able to keep up with what’s happening at your home when you’re not there. Some things you’ll be able to monitor include when the smoke detector went off, what time your children arrived home, and whether or not the carbon monoxide levels have changed.
2. They’re Making It Easier To Clean.
With the new vacuum-cleaning robots, you can literally tell the gadget to clean your floor without getting out of bed. Simply use the wireless command center to tell the robot what to do. Another great gadget that’s making it easier to clean is the iRobotVerro 300 HydroJet. This 11-pound device submerges beneath your pool’s surface to clean its floor. In circulating more than 80 gallons of water each minute-and also eliminating debris-this gadget helps you keep your pool clean without making you exert extensive effort.
3. They’re Keeping Us Cool-Or Hot.
With great gadgets like the Nest Learning Thermostat 2nd Generation, you won’t have to worry about coming home to desert-like temperatures. Or freezing temperatures, either. Thanks to the thermostat device-which learns the temperatures you prefer throughout the day and adjusts itself accordingly-you’ll always feel like the air is just right when you step into your living room. What’s great about this gadget is that you can control it with your iPod Touch, iPhone, and/or iPad.
4. There Making Life More Enjoyable
There are many things that we can do on the internet that we couldn’t a year ago. Say we need to learn how to tie a tie. Or, you need to teach your kid how to shave for the very first time. You can look up Art of Shaving accessories and techniques to teach your kids. There are so many things that you can do with your family that you can learn plenty of new things online.
5. They’re Helping Us Keep Up With Important Documents.
With wand scanners, losing important documents will become a thing of the past. The process is simple: just scan your receipts and other important papers with the scanner. This action saves the data to a memory card. You can then transfer the docs to your computer. Thus the old days-in which a document that was tossed aside or accidentally thrown in the trash meant you could never access important information-are over.
