Creating a smart home is not just a great way to conserve energy and keep track of your electronics, it’s also a great way to design a healthy home. There are several factors that help keep your home safe and productive and most of them can be controlled electronically with a smartphone or hub. Many of these devices are voice-activated as well to make your life easier.

Families who enjoy preparing their meals at home will love smart appliances. If you have ever had your fridge break down and stop cooling at its max efficiency, you know the problems it can cause. Dairy and meat need to be kept at a specific temperature and your smart fridge can let you know if there is a problem.
You can also use smart meat thermometers that will keep track of the internal temperature of your food while it cooks either in the stove or on the grill. All you need to do is ask Alexa or Google what the temperature is.
- Air Purifiers
Purifying your air is something most people don’t think about, but contaminated air can cause a variety of problems. If you have noticed yourself coughing or sneezing more while hanging around inside the house, you might need an air purifier. There are several different styles to choose from whether you want a whole-house purifier or one that sits in each room. Your qualified HVAC technician can usually make recommendations and help you find a system that will work on Wi-Fi and connect with your smartphone or hub.
Sleep is essential to keeping your body healthy and a healthy home can help. Sometimes, something as simple as changing your light bulbs can help you sleep better and longer. There are light bulbs that create a warm light in the evening that might help increase the melatonin in your body for a more restful night and a blue-tone light in the morning that not only helps you wake up, but might keep you more focused. Many devices can be set up to work with your smart devices making them easy to use.
- Smart Thermostats
Although smart thermostats have been around for a while, the new and improved versions are even better. You can monitor the temperature in your home from almost anywhere in the world as long as you have Wi-Fi.
If you hate coming home from work or vacation to a house that is either too hot or too cold, just let your smart thermostat know when you will be arriving to create the perfect temperature to welcome you home after a busy day. These devices can be installed quickly with a call to your HVAC technician who will also explain how to use it.
Stay happy and healthy in your home using technology and advancements in household systems. With new smart appliances, lighting, and thermostats keeping your home comfortable and relaxing, your life has never been easier.
