6 New Technologies You Need in Your Home
Do you want to make your home smarter? Would you like to do more to protect the environment? New technologies are making it easier than ever to have a smart, green household. Even better, many of these technologies make life easier while also reducing your impact. These are six new technologies you need in your home.
1) LED Light Bulbs
LED light bulbs rely on light-emitting devices rather than traditional halogen or fluorescent light bulbs. They use significantly less electricity and can often be integrated well with other smart home technologies. For example, you could have your lights turn on automatically in the morning or shut off when nobody is some.
Additionally, LEDs are safer for people because they don’t contain any dangerous chemicals. They also tend to last significantly longer than other lightbulb types. So, they don’t need to be replaced as often. This makes them more convenient and greener.
2) Smart Faucet
A smart faucet can help you converse water in your home more easily. It uses an intelligent design to reduce the amount of water you use for everyday tasks such as washing your hands or cleaning the dishes.
A common source of water overuse is leaving the faucet running when not actually in use. This technology helps mitigate this problem by only running water when needed. It is like a motion-activated faucet used in public restrooms but for the home.
3) Solar-Powered Outdoor Lights
Outdoor lighting can use a lot of electricity, especially if left on accidentally. These outdoor lights use solar power to reduce the amount of electricity they use from the grid. They are similar to the New Jersey solar streetlights.
With a small battery and low power needs, these lights can easily run without needing continuous sunlight. After all, outdoor lighting is primarily used in the nighttime. Fortunately, these lights work great even in the darkest nights.
4) Shower Meter
The shower meter is an easily installed device than lets you monitor how much water you are using and at what temperature. Much like faucets, showers are often a source of water overuse due to people trying to get the temperature right or neglecting to shit them off.
A little more information helps people make more responsible decisions with their showers. Additionally, getting the temperature just right is easy with a simple LED display. Discover how much you could save with a shower meter.
5) Reusable Dryer Balls
Do you ever wonder how much waste you produce by doing your laundry? There are many consumable items including detergent, fabric softener and dryer sheets. One way to reduce the waste from the laundry is to switch from single-user dryer sheets to reusable dryer balls.
These non-chemical solutions help keep your clothes feeling soft without the need for traditional dryer sheets. They also increase airflow between clothes, helping the load to dry faster. This is another way they can positively improve your laundry by cutting down on electricity needs.
6) Eco Dish Cleaner
This cleaning device uses ultrasonic waves to clean dishes. It is an eco-friendlier alternative to hand washing or using a dishwasher. It doesn’t require water and is portable. So, you can use it wherever you go.
Better yet, the device is solar-powered. This characteristic makes it even greener, especially compared to a conventional dishwasher. The food waste can easily be turned into compost. This is generally considered a good way to reuse food waste and an environmentally friendlier alternative to simply throwing food waste in the trash. This is a revolution in cleaning dishes and cookware.
These technologies can help you make your home smarter and greener. None of them require much effort to use and many make your life simpler. However, they all help you cut down on your environmental impact. In a world that is changing due to the human impact on the environment, it is important for us all to do our parts.
