2020 Edition: Must Have Tech For Your Home

The tech industry grows at an exponential rate. Although it is something that was predicted, we didn’t think it would be as advanced as it is now in 2020. With it being a strange year, and mainly stuck at home due to the global pandemic and local lockdown rules, many have found it to be a good time to upgrade their living spaces and start to become a smart home. Although many believe that this is an expensive task, it is now more affordable than ever due to the flooded market and we have summarised some of the best bits of tech for your house.

Firstly, we would start with the external of your house and not just a doorbell but also a safety and security feature – the Ring Video Doorbell Pro. Not only does this act as a doorbell to alert you when you have visitors or parcels, but also helps to secure your home in which you can answer the door anywhere in the world. The Ring Doorbell also works with Alexa and allows you to speak to your guests through your phone and the touch of a button. The Ring doorbell also have advanced motion detection technology that can record up to 24 hours’ worth of footage; somewhat of a CCTV camera for the front of your house.

The Echo Dot (3rd Generation) has been one of the most successful selling voice-controlled smart speaker of its generation; in fact, you can’t go in many houses now a days without being hooked up to Alexa. The Echo Dot allows you to make calls, answer questions, set alarms, check the weather and much much more. Alexa now have more than 50,000 skills so the opportunities are endless when it comes to discovering new skills with your Alexa.

Technology has always been a growing trend since its introduction in the 90’s, but its seeing very similar growth to other online services in the market such as online casinos. This growing trend, such as at thebestcasinos.co.uk, is one that has been in fluxed by many new customers during 2020 due to many more consumers have more time at home and more time being online with limited avenues of entertainment. The Best Casinos have capitalised on this with their huge deposit matches and welcome bonuses for all new customers.

The final bit of tech that we would recommend for your house, would be that of the iRobot Roomba 960 Vacuum. Being able to clean your floors with the command of your voice and with zero effort at all, this vacuum cleaning will save you time and effort when cleaning your house. The iRobot connects to your Wifi, comes with an app to control it, and can clean for up to 75 minutes and automatically recharge afterwards. It even has a high-efficiency filter that captures 99% of allergens, pollen and duts – a must buy in our eyes!
