Home Devices You Can Control With Your Phone

In the modern world, technology has become an integral part of our lives, helping us to be more connected no matter where we are. 

Smartphones are an excellent example of how technology has enhanced our lives. With a smartphone, we can control everything from our finances to our social lives, book holidays and order our weekly food shopping. However, one of the most convenient smartphone abilities is controlling our home devices.

Here are some of the most common devices in your home that can be controlled with a smartphone.

Smart Lights

One of the most popular devices you can control with your smartphone is your home’s lighting. Smart lights are LED bulbs that can be controlled via an app on your phone, meaning you can turn your lights on and off when you aren’t at home. Alternatively, you can keep your standard bulbs and hook your lights up to smart plugs for the same functionality.

Smart Home Thermostats

Smart heating is a fantastic way to make your home more energy efficient. A smart home thermostat is a piece of kit that allows you to adjust your home's temperature from anywhere in the world via an app on your phone.

Smart heating allows you to switch your heating on before you get home, meaning that if your day lasts longer than you initially thought, you don’t need to rely on your boiler’s regular timer. Using smart radiator thermostats means you can change your heating schedule or the temperature of your home, all from your smartphone. 

Smart Plugs

Using smart plugs in your home allows you to turn any electrical device into a smart one. Connecting to your smartphone app via the internet, smart plugs mean that you can switch on and off any electrical device that is plugged into them remotely. 

Smart Radiators And Underfloor Heating

You can take your smart heating to the next level by connecting smart radiator thermostats and underfloor heating controls to your smartphone. Using smart radiators means that you have even more control over each room’s temperature, so you can heat only the rooms you need.

Smart Cameras

Allowing you to monitor your home from anywhere in the world, smart cameras connected to a mobile app will enable you to view live footage and receive a notification when motion is detected.
