While the holiday season is a wonderful time of the year, it can also be a stressful season if you’re entertaining friends and family members. Thankfully, advances in smart home technology have led to the creation of gadgets and gizmos that make hosting a breeze.
Top Smart Home Features for Ease of Entertaining
Smart Shopping List
Cooking for the holidays is far more detailed than your average dinner, which means it’s easy to forget a number of ingredients that you don’t normally buy. Instead of relying on memory or a scribbled paper list, many hosts use a smart device that essentially creates a digital shopping list. You can program items onto it or simply scan the barcodes of items you need to replace.
If you’ve cooked dinner for a large party before, you know that even a dash too much or a pinch too little can dramatically change the taste and texture of a dish. Thankfully, a smart scale will help you weigh everything down to the morsel so you’re always using the exact amount called for in the recipe.
The ham and the turkey — two main courses that can't be ruined. Never chance overcooking these meats by investing in a smart thermometer. These handy devices will tell you the exact temperature of the meat and can send notifications to your phone alerting you to current temperature and time remaining.
Smart Speaker System
It just isn’t the holidays without music filling the airwaves. A smart speaker system will let you play music throughout your home, controlled from the palm of your hand. You can even stream audio of the day’s sporting events, so even those helping out in the kitchen won’t miss a single play.
Smart Air Purifier
After a day spent cooking meats, veggies, pies, cookies, and every other side dish, a myriad of smells will fill your home. Keep the post-dinner festivities fresh with a smart air purifier.
Motorized Window Shades
By installing motorized window shades, you can seamlessly adjust the amount of natural light in the room throughout the day. Interior shades control the amount of heat, light and glare that filters into your home. Easily installed and even easier to use, these smart shades are available in a variety of fabric colors, so you can find the option that matches your current décor.
