Complementing Your Kitchen
With a wide range of smart appliances on offer, digital technology has the power to improve every room within your home. For the aspiring chefs out there however, tech innovations in the kitchen mean your meals can be prepared, cooked and stored more efficiently than ever before.
No matter whether you’re a whizz in the kitchen or more of a reluctant chef, high hygiene standards are crucial to both your health and your enjoyment of each dish you create. Rather than more traditional grooved tap handles, iTaps’ range of sleek digital taps make use of germ-free, sensitive touch screens to turn on and off, while high-tech fridge cameras alert you when your food is close to going off or out of date. These smart innovations mean that you can enjoy cooking without the worry of germs or bacteria impacting on you and your family’s health.
Once you’re certain your kitchen hygiene standards are being kept high, you might want to branch out into cooking up more exciting and innovative meals. By connecting to online recipes or using sensors to measure your ingredients, digital appliances like precision cookers and smart ovens take the guesswork out of cooking, so you can test your culinary skills without the worry of faulty kitchenware letting you down.
Running Your Household
Smart technology doesn’t have to just be an unnecessary addition to your home life, it can be a real game changer when it comes to your daily to-do list. One of the most well-known (and widely used) handy digital appliances are home assistants, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home. In a nutshell, home assistants make the running of your everyday life that little bit more simple. Setting reminders for your shopping lists, important dates in the calendars or simply your favourite songs helps you go from one job to another seamlessly and easily. Especially for those of us who run busy lives, a home assistant is a great way to make sure you never miss a beat, no matter how many bits and pieces you’re trying to hold inside your head.
The latest home technology innovations also make sure you can run your entire household from your smartphone, even while you’re busy with another task. For example, updated digital doorbells give you the option to film from your front door, or give voice commands at the touch of a button; when you’re out and about, this is a great time-saver to make sure you can stay as connected to your home as possible. If you have pets and need to vacuum more regularly than usual, robot hoovers can be set to get the job done for you, so you can enjoy the benefits of a clean and tidy home, without losing valuable time each day.

If you’re trying to get your head down while working from home but can’t get your temperature quite right, voice controlled thermostats can adjust your heating to your exact preference without you having to get up and risk losing focus. If you’re a plant-lover lacking natural green-fingered instincts, digital planters can program the right amount of water to feed your succulents and herbs just enough to keep them growing healthily. From automated pet feeders to control your dog’s food intake to smart beds that sense when you could be sleeping better, the latest innovations in the digital world mean there’s bound to be a smart appliance on the market that makes your everyday life that little bit more simple and enjoyable.
