If you’ve been thinking about creating your very own smart home and been put off because you think it will be a) too expensive and b) too technical to set up on your own – then you’re mistaken. We’re here to tell you that the convenience that smart homes offer can be yours more easily and affordably than you ever thought possible.
In this short blog, we’ll take a look at just a few products that can add function and control to your home and at a cost that’s within most home improvement budgets. You’re not going to be a tech-whizz by reading to the end, but hopefully you’ll see that the technology is far more accessible that a lot of people realise.
Smart Home Electronics
First we look at how easily all of your home electronics can be controlled from your smartphone. By placing a Sonoff S26 smart plug in between your chosen device and the socket, you get to control exactly when each device turns on and off, no matter where you are. Also, you can set up your devices to turn on and off at certain times of the day.
Got some equipment in your backyard like a sprinkler or garden lights that you’d like to include in your smart home? No bother, as there’s an outdoor option that comes in the form of the Sonoff S55 Waterproof Wifi Socket that’s able to keep the elements out!
Smart Home Security
Or what about some smart security? The Sonoff GK-200MP2-B IP security camera is a great, affordable option that allows you to keep tabs on what’s going on inside and outside of your home. Coming with a 360° viewing angle and full 1080p HD recording and infra-red, you’ll never miss a thing.
This Sonoff camera also offers motion detection, as well as real-time alerts, so if anything unexpected comes into view, you’ll be the first to know about it.
Smart Home Lighting
Then there’s the world of mood-creating possibilities provided by smart lighting. You can get total control of every aspect of your lighting with devices like the Sonoff T2 Smart Light Switch or the equally useful Sonoff D1 Dimmer Switch that lets you adjust the intensity of your lights.
That’s not all either, as you open yourself up to the full spectrum of colour with hugely popular options like the Sonoff LED Strip Light Full Kit and the Sonoff Smart LED Colourful Bulb. Whether you’re looking to create romantic mood lighting for an evening with your partner or a disco lighting that changes in time with the music, this awesome kit can put control right in the palm of your hand.
Awesome Tech at Awesome Prices
So, as you can see, there’s lots of tech out there that can make your home easier and more relaxing to live in. And the best part? The most expensive item on this list is the Sonoff camera, at a mere £29.99. All this tech is available for an incredibly low price considering the function and convenience it offers.
