With more time being spent at home, it’s no wonder that more people are looking to smart technology to make being at home more comfortable, convenient and fun. According to Time, more than 63 million American homes will be considered smart by the year 2022, making smart home devices more of a commodity, ranging in purpose from entertainment, to practical use, to energy savings and especially home security. No matter your lifestyle or preferences, upgrading to smart technology at home can save time and money, while also making home life more enjoyable.

If you love at-home entertainment and music:

A connected entertainment system, complete with smart speakers, can carry your favorite tunes throughout the entire home without you having to manually carry around a speaker or smart phone. If family movie nights are a tradition, upgrade your den or extra living space into your own personal theater, complete with comfortable seating, surround sound and movie theater style lighting. Enhance the home theater experience with a snack cart to keep your favorites nearby.

If you’re a homebody:

Convenience and comfort are the keywords if staying in has become your favorite past time. Automate daily activities like your morning coffee, plus add smart lights throughout the home, and automated window blinds to give yourself one less thing to worry about. Don’t skip out on the chance to wake up to natural light, and set your devices to showcase the latest news, as your coffee automatically begins brewing in the kitchen every morning. Smart home technology should be autonomous, scheduled and set up based on your habits so that you are truly able to enjoy all the benefits.

If you are a sports enthusiast or golfer:

Improve your golf game with a virtual reality based golfing range that can fit in your garage or man cave. It has the ability to simulate your swing and speed of the ball as if you’re on the golf course, all from the comfort of your own home. If you enjoy the social aspect of golf, opt for a simulator that has multiplayer mode, where you can play with friends, family or even online.

If you like working out:

Smart refrigerators can tell you when you need to replenish groceries and healthy food staples, while smart home gym systems and health trackers can keep you in shape and on track to your fitness goals. If your workout needs some variety, try something new like a smart boxing bag complete with personal trainers and on demand workouts.

If you have small children:

Smart technology is something that the entire family can enjoy. Alexa is a great resource for kids to play games, get help with homework or even keep in touch with friends and family that they haven’t seen in a while. And if you’re worried about your kids’ technology use, monitoring and restrictions are a part of many smart devices, so that you have control and flexibility to cater the settings to what works best for your family.
