Nowadays, home is where the tech is. There’s so much that we can do to improve our lives and our leisure time with connected home devices, mobile devices, high-speed networks, and other luxuries that are so essential to the tech-obsessed among us.
And if you’re spending your time at home surrounded by smart devices that make your chores more comfortable and improve your leisure time, then you’re going to want to read on. That’s because, in the sections below, you can find a few tech upgrades that are essential to modern homes.
Mesh Router Systems
Wherever your router is, that’s where your Wi-Fi signal is the strongest. But what if your router was everywhere?
Make that routers. Mesh Wi-Fi systems use multiple routers (or router-like booster devices) to blanket your home in high-speed Wi-Fi coverage. These modern routers are fast becoming the new face of wireless internet. If you have weak Wi-Fi spots in your home, then you should be considering mesh Wi-Fi.
Wireless Carrier Booster Devices
A mesh router system may fix weak Wi-Fi, but if you have a weak cellular signal, then you need a cell phone booster. A cell phone booster is exactly what it sounds like: it’s a device that amplifies the signals that connect your smartphone to your nearest cell tower.
That ensures that you don’t miss important calls and texts while you’re at home. If you’re missing communications like those, how connected can you say that your home is? Get back in touch by upgrading your home’s 4G and cellular signals.
Smart Home Security Systems
You may already have things like nanny cams or doorbell cameras attached to your smart home network (if you have a smart home hub, that is). But do you have a smart security system? This isn’t just a hodgepodge of devices — this is a unified system that’s covered by 24/7 monitoring services.
A security system can give you mental peace and make a real difference in the safety and security of your space. And modern smart home devices like motion sensors and cameras are ideally suited to their roles in high-tech security systems.
A Robot Vacuum Cleaner
We’re living in the future, here — so why do you still do your vacuuming? Don’t you know that we have robots to do chores like that now? Frequently listed among the best home tech upgrades for making your life easier, a robot vacuum can be a huge help in the constant battle to keep your space clean and clear of debris.
How intense you want your tech to be here is up to you. Some robot vacuums are quite simple, while others have their apps, remember the shape of your spaces and the placement of your furniture, and work on a set schedule without any need for controls on your part.
A Virtual Reality Headset
Virtual reality headsets are not cheap, but they are incredibly cool. If your obsession with tech includes a desire to check out the latest and most cutting-edge stuff (and whose tech obsession doesn’t?), then you can’t very well go about your daily life without an excellent virtual reality headset, can you?
Virtual reality headsets can be designed to work with smart devices like smartphones, with video game systems like the PlayStation 4, or on their own. Just remember that this is a new technology, and it’s still being perfected.
