To help you start turning your house into a smart home, here are some of the tech you should get first.
Other than the Ultra HD resolution that allows you to view every intricate detail of a show or film you’re watching, smart TVs like the Sony 65-inch x8500e also comes with chromecast and mirroring features.

More than that, you can connect to Internet using your TV. Stream your videos on Youtube, Netflix, or Hulu without the hassle of opening up an app on your phone or computer. Some smart TVs also come with a virtual assistant, literally giving you your own AI help.
We’ve all experienced having neighbours who are too comfortable with us that they decide to drop-in all willy-nilly whenever they want. However, if you’re particular about who you want to invite in your house, then a smart doorbell like the Nest Hello Doorbell is right for you.

Apart from giving you the ideal room temperature during those bitter winter nights, it is also energy efficient. So you can use it for long hours at a time without worrying about a surge in your electric bills. At the same time, it turns into a bed with one flip of a switch. Its LED screen also display the current date and room temperature so for easy monitoring.
Door and window sensors
One of our worst fears are intruders, which is why we usually put out all the stops to make sure that our house remains safe and secure for everyone in the family. For this reason, the most helpful tool to have is the Z-Wave wireless automation.
Their window and door sensor picks up any intrusive activity. It can also send you text messages and emails whenever activity is detected, and if the doors are indeed safely locked, so that you can monitor the house remotely.
Other than the Roomba (which is a great cleaning tool, by the way), make sure you get these smart technology for your home and make maintenance and upkeep easier for you and your family.
