How I Use Tech To Live Smarter

Sunday, 11 June 2017

Technology plays a bit part in many people's lives nowadays and it has become the norm to use it to help us with everyday tasks. I've always been one to favour tech as my way of doing things, it just seems a little old fashioned to use pen and paper, but that's just me. I like being able to have everything at my fingertips, wherever I am. My main port of call is to use my phone for a lot of things such as keeping track of my calendar so I know that anything and everything I'm doing will be logged on there. Having something where I can view what work I have to do makes it so much easier to organise myself. I'm not going to lie, I like to make lists for everything so it's great to arrange these in sections on my phone so I can quickly go in and see what needs doing. Using a tablet also helps my life run smoother, with everything being able to sync with my phone so whichever device I'm using I always have the most up to date information, but the tablet has some added functionality. 

There has been more new tech being released which would be a great addition to what I currently own. It would make my life easier and get towards the smart home I would love to have. It's one thing having tech that can help organise yourself, but having something that can actually do something for you would be perfect. Having a robot hoover to do the cleaning would be great as you could come home from a long day at work and not have to spend time doing it yourself. Useful features let you choose what time and how often you want it cleaning and many can be controlled remotely.

Security is an important part of keeping your things safe with cameras being one way to do this. WiFi smart-cams are the new thing which let you remotely monitor what's on at home, whether this is checking there's nothing untoward going on, or even to see what your dog gets up to when you aren't home. A lot of new pieces of smart tech can be controlled from your phone, which even stretches to controlling your heating. I could see this coming in very handy when you wake up in the morning and want to warm the house before getting out of your bed, or wanting to adjust the temperature when you have already got comfortable in front of the TV. Saving money on your energy bills would also come hand-in-hand as you only need to heat your home as and when you need it. I find it interesting to see what tech other people use to live smarter, and this is what Alex Brooker has been looking at on Channel 4 with his 'Home Tech Over' powered by Samsung. If you want to see how he got on, then you can check out the episode below.
