Automating your home: A lot more possible than you thought

Interiors home living room

In the days of Google Home, Amazon Alexa and Siri, who can do anything you need other than make your morning coffee and take your stuff to the dry-cleaners, your home is next in the long line of tech updates.

And the best bit, is that the days of just being able to time your lights and flick them using an app are over – you can turn your home into something seriously ‘of the future’ with just a few updates.


  • Talking to your centralised hub like Amazon Alexa
  • having your air conditioning units, humidifiers and more reacting together in response to changes in your home environment
  • communicating with postmen and couriers through the door bell
  • relaxing and unwinding in the evenings by setting schedules with connected products such as scent diffusers, lighting and curtains
  • returning to a freshly vacuumed and mopped home, every single day.

Things like this are doable with a whole range of tech, like these nifty finds.
