What Smart Devices Can You Use in Your Apartment?

In today’s technology-first world, it’s not uncommon to find all types of technology inside our homes. With so many smart home devices on the market, it’s easy to take advantage of the convenience, comfort, and efficiency that come with them. If you live in an apartment and want to enhance your living experience, here are some of the best smart home devices you can utilize without installation hassles.

Smart Lighting

 Person Controlling Light With App On Phone

Upgrade your apartment in a matter of minutes by installing smart light bulbs in some or all of your rooms. Smart light bulbs are bulbs that can be controlled remotely using your smartphone, allowing you to adjust brightness and color and even set schedules. These bulbs are particularly useful in apartments as they don’t require any tedious electric work or modifications. Most only require you to install a light bulb and download an app to control them. Popular options include Philips Hue, Lifx, and Wyze bulbs, which can be integrated with Alexa and Google Assistant.

Outdoor Smart Light Bulbs

Don’t forget about your apartment’s balcony or porch lights! There are also smart light bulbs that are weatherproof and can be controlled through apps, offering different colors and brightness levels. Philips Hue and Sengled offer outdoor smart light bulbs that will help transform your outdoor spaces with just a few steps.

Voice Assistants

Voice assistants are devices that you can integrate into your everyday routine. These compact devices allow you to control lights, play music, set timers, and even answer questions with simple voice commands. Amazon Echo Dot and Google Home are two popular options that can seamlessly integrate with your smart lights, smart plugs, and other various smart home devices.

Smart Plugs

Smart plugs are a great way to elevate your smart home setup. These devices allow you to turn regular appliances and devices into smart ones by simply plugging them into the smart plug. With the help of your voice assistant, you can control the power of these devices remotely, set schedules, and monitor energy usage.
