3 Smart Home Technologies Your Home Can Benefit From

Apr 10, 2014

Smart home systems are rapidly growing in popularity, and for good reason. In addition to an increase in the awareness of the personal comfort and cost savings benefits afforded by smart home solutions, smart home technologies are actually improving. To understand how this is happening, take a look at the following avant-garde smart home technologies.

Belkin WeMo

No matter how much of an effort one makes to remember to turn off the lights or A/C before leaving home, occasional slips are inevitable. Energy-draining devices that you keep plugged into the wall can be even more difficult to be cognizant of when you’ve got other things to do. This is where Belkin WeMo comes into play. In addition to having the power to shut off a light or your A/C from your smartphone, Belkin WeMo allows you to cut or return power to an outlet. This will come in handy the next time you leave a curling iron plugged in and turned on or an alarm set that is scheduled to go off while you are still out of the house.


Raising and caring for a pet is one of the most rewarding experiences a human can have. But let’s face it, pet care is no piece of cake. Petnet, an automatic pet feeder, can greatly reduce the stress associated with caring for a pet. Rather than wallow in guilt the next time an unexpected business meeting pushes back your pooch’s dinner, you can simply pick up your phone and direct the Petnet to deliver a pre-determined serving of chow. Petnet is also programmable, enabling pet owners to avoid having to drop their pets off at a kennel or ask friends to feed their pets during weekend getaways and short business trips.

Skydrop Sprinkler Controller

Energy savings are a theme among smart home appliances and technologies. Now, with the Skydrop Sprinkler Controller, wireless smart home technology can help you save water as well. This revolutionary sprinkler control system monitors local weather conditions and adjusts the volume of water your sprinklers dispense to account for any of Mother Nature’s tears that are helping to keep your lawn green. The controller, which can be programmed to work with your existing sprinkler system, will ensure that your lawn does not get parched or oversaturated.    

The smart home technologies featured in this post are just a small sampling of the exciting development taking place in the world of smart home systems.
