06 Aug Electrical Ideas to Simplify Your Life
Our lives and our homes can easily become cluttered. Everyone has a phone, and most people have a computer, laptop, tablet or some other device that needs to be charged.
Luckily, with many advances in technology, we can reduce some of the clutter. Here are a few ways to do so:
USB wall socket: More than half of the people in the United States own either an iPhone or an Android, which are USB-dependent devices. Installing a few of these around your home will make charging your device easier - you will no longer ravage your home to find a wall adapter. This is a useful upgrade that will not break the bank.
Smart apps: Many app developers have created apps for the home to control lighting, temperature, entertainment systems and security. There are hundreds of apps available through either Apple’s App Store or the Google Play Store, so there should be no issue finding a suitable app for turning your phone into a universal remote for the home.
Whole home audio: One of the many upgrades people are buying into is a whole home or multi-room audio system. These systems allow you to designate what music plays in certain rooms, as well as wall controls or mobile apps for controlling the music and volume.
Safety: Losing clutter is essential for relieving stress, but lowering your chance of risk of an emergency in the home is also important. Many homes have outdated electrical systems of which homeowners are not aware. It is suggested to have an electrician look at the wiring in your house every 8 – 10 years.
