March 31, 2022
Have you ever caught yourself wishing that you had a smarter home that could take care of itself?
You're not alone. A study by Statista found that more than half of the households in Singapore will adopt smart home automation by 2025 at a stunning annual growth rate of almost 15%.
In this blog post, we'll show you how to smarten up your home so that you can finally get that break you deserve. Keep reading for our top tips on how to make your home more intelligent!
1. Invest in a smart assistant
A smart assistant is a virtual assistant that helps you with tasks such as scheduling appointments, sending reminders, and managing your to-do list. Smart assistants can be accessed through voice commands or through a mobile app.
With Amazon's Alexa and Google Assistant slowly taking over households in Singapore, it's hard to imagine smart homes without these devices. They can do the mundane tasks for you, freeing up your time for other more important things, and taking over when you’re too tired or when your hands are full.
2. Light up your home with smart lighting
The smart home lighting systems can be controlled by a smart assistant like Google Home, Amazon Alexa or a convenient app that you can use to control all the lights from anywhere. You can use your devices to turn them on and off, even when you aren’t home. No more stressing about whether you left the lights on!
In addition, smart home lighting systems use LED bulbs that do not require as much electricity as traditional lamps. This, in turn, decreases your electricity bill and helps you save money on energy costs.
Smart lighting systems also give homeowners the convenience to choose between various light colours for different times of day (for example, warm light at night or daylight-like vibes during the day).
3. Automate mundane tasks with smart plugs
Smart plugs are the gateways to the smart home. They turn on and off devices, monitor power usage, and track energy costs.
Smart plugs can work with most household appliances. For example, plug in the coffee machine, and schedule it to wake coffee so you have a fresh brew ready when you wake! Or, have your aircon turned on so that you have a cool home ready when you get back from work.
Set schedules for your devices with timers, and control them all through an app on your phone.
4. Consider getting a smart TV
A smart TV is a great way to make your home smarter. They offer a lot of features that can help you get more out of your home entertainment experience. Some of the benefits of owning a smart TV include:
- being able to access the internet on your TV
- being able to use apps and other features on your TV
- being able to control your TV with voice commands
- having a more immersive entertainment experience
5. Amp up home security with a smart digital lock
Keep your home safe with a smart digital lock! Smart locks are increasingly popular in Singapore with the obvious and significant benefit of extra security negating the need for keys. Some smart locks are integrated with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities and can be controlled with your mobile phone.
Digital locks are typically unlocked with a coded keypad, keycard, fingerprint sensor, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or a combination of a few features. You can also grant access to several people at once by giving them individual codes or letting them share a code.
When it comes to digital locks, security is another major advantage. They can't be broken or duplicated because these digital locks use digital encryption mode. The owner of a digital lock can decide who enters their homes during certain times, reducing the possibility of a break-in.
