We live in a time now where technology is used daily in our lives, our homes, our workplaces. But is your home smart?
There are so many options available out there; smart meters, smart speakers, smart doorbell, smart heating systems. The list is endless. You can even get a robotic vacuum! I really need to invest in one that follows my kids around all day!
Smart meters have become really popular over the last couple years and will soon be a required feature by 2024. They monitor your energy levels in your home to help you be more conscious of what you’re using and where. I don’t know about you but in my house we use a lot of electricity. We have two fans on all year round, lights are left on everywhere, tablets and phones and consoles need daily charge, we use coffee machines, blenders, microwaves, we watch tv. The list goes on and on. So a monitor would be great for us.
Certas Energy has created an infographic which details what parts of the home you can add a smart element to and teach people why they should consider bringing it into their lives, ultimately reducing our carbon output.
Do you have any of these Smart features on your home? If not, which ones would you consider having?
