Technology is one of the coolest tools of creators, and recently, has been used to make things around the house a little easier for homeowners to navigate. Smart home technology not only makes your home your partner in life, it also boosts the value of your property.
A home appraisal for a property that has no smart technology will almost always result in a lower estimate than a home equipped with fancy tech tools and gadgets. Check out some of today’s most popular pieces of smart home technology, and get the best of 2018 for your home.
Now your house can help you with the laundry. The Foldimate does exactly what you might think it does; It helps you fold laundry. It is not a completely autonomous laundry folding machine, but all the user has to do is feed the laundry into the machine one piece at a time.
The Foldimate will take your clothes into the top of the machine and deposit them, perfectly folded, out of the bottom. Shirts, blouses, and pants from kids size 5T all the way up to XXL are no trouble for the Foldimate.
If you love sitting by the pool, listening to music, and chillin’ with your friends, then the Sunflower is the perfect addition to the day. The Sunflower is an autonomous umbrella, equipped with solar panels that follow the sun.
The Sunflower collects its own energy throughout the day to power its Bluetooth radio, controlled lighting, charger ports, camera, and autonomous movement. Oh yeah! We forgot to mention that the Sunflower will also retract itself if the winds get too fierce outside.
