We are already living a life where we can’t imagine a day without technology or the blessings of science. Either very minute or a very massive part in life what we call technology is always present but the sheer fact is you can’t ignore it! Here is a list of top 10 incredible technologies that you can use for a much more easier and comfortable life. Check it out-
August Smart Lock
With this smart lock, you’ll never need keys again—it unlocks automatically when you get home, and locks behind you when you close the door. You can grant guest keys to friends or the dog sitter, and have them expire when you no longer want to give that person access to your house. An optional keypad means you can set a code to open your door in case you don’t have your phone with you (like if you’re out for a run). You can even view the activity log and grant access from your smartphone remotely. Smart security systems are becoming more popular with the increase in options, and a smart lock like this one is a great place to start.
Kolibree Smart Tooothbrush
Of course, the IoT extends to things that are much smaller than an entire smart home setup. A great example of this is Kolibree, the smart toothbrush. Kolibree connects to your smartphone and encourages good brushing habits for both kids and adults by turning brushing into a game and saving data on your phone about your brushing habits. The Kolibree doesn’t yet transmit this data to your dentist, but don’t be surprised if that becomes an option!
WeMo Switch Smart Plug
One of the most useful devices in the Belkin’s range of WeMo connected home devices in the Switch, a smart plug. It plugs into a regular outlet, accepts the power cord from any device, and can be used to turn it on and off on a set schedule or when you hit a button on your smartphone. Another model of smart plug, the Insight switch, also monitors how much energy your devices are using, helping you make your home more energy-efficient. You can see when the plugs are on, how much power they’re using, and set schedules for operation right from the mobile app.
Canary Smart Security System
In the past, a motion detector was about the most advanced device that you could use to secure your home against intruders—but today’s home monitors are much more advanced. For example, the Canary combines video, audio, motion detection, night vision, a siren, and air quality, temperature, and humidity sensors into a single device that you can control from your phone. Piper is a similar system that serves as a security system and a home monitoring device, and it can also serve as a speaker, letting you speak to anyone in your home even if you’re away. These systems are pushing the boundaries of how in control you can be, regardless of where you are in relation to your home.
Petnet Smart Pet Feeder
Why should humans be the only ones to benefit from the Internet of Things? Petnet’s smart feeder helps you calculate the best type of food for your dog or cat, how much they should be eating, and even sets up delivery of pet food for when you run out. You control the smart feeder via your smartphone, and can monitor your pet’s food consumption even if you’re away from home.
Healthpatch Health Monitor
Most of the Internet of Things devices we’ve discussed so far have been for your convenience—you could use normal bulb, you could set up a security system, and you could have your neighbors feed your pet. But the Healthpatch serves a greater purpose than your convenience. It can be used for out-patient care by healthcare providers, letting them get ECG, heart rate, respiratory rate, skin temperature, body posture, fall detection, and activity readings remotely. This can alert doctors to potential health problems before they arise, or give them additional insights into which treatments will be most effective for their patients, even when their patients aren’t in the office.
Automatic Car Tracking Adapter
Until now, the examples of Internet of Things devices have focused on the home—but the IoT reaches far beyond the walls of your house. The Automatic app, for example, tracks information about your car by using an in-car adapter. It keeps track of things like mileage, hours driven, fuel cost, fuel efficiency, location, and ignition status. It can be connected with other apps, too, making it even more useful. Dash is an alternative to Automatic that gives you similar information, and calculates an overall “Dash score” to help you improve your driving. Many fleet vehicles are now getting IoT capabilities so they can be monitored and made more efficient, as well.
Have you ever wished that you could have a café-grade coffeemaker built into your kitchen? With the Topbrewer, you can—and not only do you get access to top-quality coffee whenever you want, but you can also make it from anywhere with the companion app. Choose the type of drink you want—latte, Americano, mocha, cappuccino, juice, hot chocolate, even carbonated water—and all you need to do is hit “Start Now” to kick off the brewing. And it’s fast: the Topbrewer only takes 15 seconds to make a filter coffee. If you’re a coffee fanatic, you may want to start saving; the Topbrewer will run you over $10,000.
Smart Cement by Oceanit Laboratories
When you think about it, cement seems like one of the least “smart” things out there—you pour it, it becomes rock-hard, and that’s that. But Oceanit Laboratories (along with other research companies) is trying to change that by embedding nanosensors in the material, allowing it to “[behave] more like a sensor, capable of transmitting and responding to mechanical, acoustic and magnetic signals.” They give the example of oil drilling; the cement surrounding a well could pass information back to workers, helping them understand the integrity of the well and better assess risk. There are many conceivable uses for this technology, from sidewalks to hydroelectric dams.
Nest Smart Thermostat
One of the most highly visible and popular pieces of Internet of Things technology is the Nest, a smart thermostat that’s connected to the internet. The Nest learns your family’s routines and will automatically adjust the temperature based on when you’re home or away, awake or asleep, hot or cold, to make your house more efficient and help you save on heating and cooling bills. The mobile app allows you to edit schedules, change the temperature when you’re away from home, and even receive alerts when it looks like something has gone wrong with your heating or cooling system.
