Gadgets for your home and car
Learn more about some of the choices you have for home and car gadgets. What are your favorites?
Gadgets for your car
Let’s start with some of the most exciting car gadgets. One of the best ones is a dash camera! These are wonderful choices for making sure that, if you do get into a car accident, the dash camera is going to record it. In situations where it’s a “he said, she said” or an accident involving an animal, the dash camera can help make sure that you get the real facts backed up — good or bad.
Another great option is a tire sensor. This will alert you if the tire pressure drops too low or gets too high when you’re driving. If you have a particularly cold morning or an especially hot afternoon and are planning on doing a lot of driving, this is a great thing to keep in mind! Plus, it offers peace of mind if you are concerned about slow leaks. Note, most newer car models already have this option built in but if yours doesn’t, this is a great one to have.
Gadgets for your home
Your home is going to benefit (well, it’s really you who will benefit, while in your home) from a lot of exciting gadgets that will help you to enjoy more peace of mind both when you’re home and if you’re away from home.
One of the newest choices is going to be the smart controllers for either blinds or curtains. These allow you to open and close your blinds/curtains with a tap on your phone. The enabled machines on your blinds or curtains will open and close them in live time! This is great for setting them on schedules and generally keeping your home safe from onlookers! Pair this with timed lights and lamps, it can have the lights on before you get home from work and not come home to a dark home, or make a presence in your home when you are away on vacation.
Another great choice, particularly for storm season, is a weather station. This goes out in your yard and gives you accurate, detailed weather reports on everything from nearby lightning strikes to humidity and wind speeds.
For further techies, you can also have a strong and high-draw power station! This is a mobile battery that can power many high-draw items (such as coffee makers, microwaves, and space heaters). If the power goes out, this is a home essential for safety and those must have needs – like laptop for home office work, fans and cell chargers.
Personal gadgets for you
You deserve to have some safety-related tech love, too! The best choices are smart watches that give you detailed health and cardio-related details for keeping yourself safe and up to date on what’s going on in your body.
Similar to this is the smart thermometer that helps you keep on top of those temperatures of yourself and your loved ones. In a world of colds, cases of flu, and viruses, this is important to keep in mind!
