GET SMART / NEW HOME TECH

Sometimes all you need is a lick of paint to freshen up your house for sale. But in other instances, investing in a serious overhaul will translate to serious money come sale-day.

In a generation of those wanting everything at our fingertips as fast as possible, it makes complete sense that we are making our homes as smart as our phones.

Our top 5 picks to make your home faster and smarter :

FRIDGECAM

Do you open the fridge 10 times before you realise the contents haven’t changed? Not sure whether you need to buy milk on the way home?

The FridgeCam is a little camera that fits inside any fridge and each time you open & close the fridge door it takes a photo of its contents and updates you via your smartphone.

The device will also send you notifications when you drive past a shop, to remind you to grab an item on your way home.

SMARTYPANS

The SmartyPans has built-in sensors that are connected to a smartphone app – basically, you tell the app what ingredients you’re adding to the pan, and it calculates calories and other nutritional information.

It also gives step by step cooking instructions and can share recipes in real time.

 

 

FOOD TO FERTILISER

The Zera Food Recycler by Whirlpool has a simple concept. Food goes in, fertiliser comes out.

No smell, no mucking around with unruly bins, just fresh compost straight to your garden.

A carbon filter – to reduce smell – has to be installed and maintained, along with a plant based additive to help the machine break down your food.

 

 

APPLE HOME KIT

HomeKit is Apple’s attempt to bring all your smart devices together into a single ecosystem. In Apple’s future your smart dock-lock will talk to your smart lights, and your smart thermostat will be able to work seamlessly with your smart ceiling fan.

 

 

SKYBELL VIDEO DOORBELL

SkyBell is a Wi-Fi enabled video doorbell that allows you to see who’s at your door from your mobile device – whether you’re at home, at work or on the go. When a visitor presses the button, SkyBell sends you a live video feed so you can see, hear and speak to the person at your door from iOS and Android mobile devices.
