In these busy and often stressful times, having a little help around the house can be handy. Home Automation (HA) tools are a great way to make things run more quickly and efficiently around the house. Here’s a list of just some of the great HA tools you can use to make your life a little easier.
Plug-and-Use Home Automation
Just plug a wire-free HA module into an electrical outlet and you have instant control of lighting, heating, and curtains. A wire-free HA module is a great tool when you are away and want your home to look occupied.
Biometric Fingerprint Locks
Always losing your keys? If you’ve ever had to go to the expense and bother of changing all your locks, you may want to consider one of the new biometric locks. This is a fingerprint recognition door lock that makes house keys obsolete. Once you scan your fingerprint into memory it will be recognized on the sensor. Up to 99 fingerprints can be stored to ensure frequent visitors (such as family members and cleaners) can gain access to your home. No more having to leave keys under the doormat.

What happens to your carefully tended houseplants when you go on vacation – do they wither without you, or waste away due to over-zealous watering by a friend or relative? Consider buying a compact plug-in system that waters up to 14 different indoor plants grouped around the container for up to two weeks. Just set it and forget it until you return.
