HOME AUTOMATION

We live in a world of possibilities. When I say possibilities, I mean anything imaginable coming to fruition. Imagine a scenario where every gadget in your home interacting with one other; from clocks to speakers, lights, doorbells, cameras, windows, integrated curtains control, heaters, appliances, cooking utensils, motorized gate, just name it. It’s the Internet of Things (IoT). All these are remotely controlled gadgets via voice commands and/or your mobile phone. With the emergence of 5G enabled devices, connecting and interaction just got better and faster.

Home automation also helps reduce wastage of power, with the smart thermostat your home’s temperature is monitored, that is, it can turn off while you are asleep and the room is still cool. Using smart locks is more secured they usually come with motion sensors

GO GREEN

Green energy like Solar is a fantastic off-grid option. They are renewable, clean and available every day of the year and even cloudy days produce some energy can still be harnessed. they are both air and noise pollution free compared to the traditional and no greenhouse gas  is emitted. Maintenance cost is on the low side required battery changes after at least 7 years and panels which can be hung virtually anywhere can last for as long as 30 years

FYI. There is more solar power that hits the earth every day then the current population can use in a year. 

SMART ASSISTANT SPEAKERS

I’d like to wake up in the morning, and say ‘Hey Alexa, I need a hot cup of coffee and doughnuts, with a lot of ham please!”.  Also called Artificial Intelligent Assistants, they can perform tasks and services for humans. they are pretty magical with how they work, I call them human buddies. Currently the most popular brands are Googl’e Home Hub, Echo by Amazon, Apple’s HomePod, they work pretty well and can be installed in various part of your home and interconnected. 

They can also work seamlessly with your home automation

LED LIGHTS

According to SEPCO Solar, led lights are 80% more energy efficient than traditional lighting. They convert 95% of energy to light, while 5% is converted to heat compared to florescence light which is the reverse. They contain no toxic element, last longer and saves you some extra bucks in light bills.

SON Label

ENERGY SAVING ELECTRONICS

If you’re considering getting new electronics for your new home, look out for SON National Energy Efficiency Label on it. The higher the grade the more efficient it is at energy saving. Its usually on electronics like Air Conditioners, Refrigerators, this generation of electronics save up to 60% energy with their inverter technology. Although they might be a bit more expensive than the traditional ones, on the long run you would be saving more.

Overall, owning a rental apartment with these features would give your property an edge.
