You watch TV commercials or TikTok videos and you see some new product that instantly grabs your attention. What’s next? You proceed to find it online or in stores if you really want it. Thanks to media there are so many products, appliances, devices, and other things that are brought to our attention – it’s the marketing of course, but at the same time it’s the introduction of something new to the market.
Now, other than the things that you come across on several media platforms every now and then, we have something slightly different for you. Here are 4 devices that we think you should definitely look into. They’re super useful, worth the price tag, and would pretty much change your lifestyle a slight bit.
1. Philips Air Purifier
One of the best home air purifiers is the Philips 1000i series Air Purifier. Within 11 minutes this appliance can filter out invisible allergens, pollutants, and viruses within your home. It keeps the air clean and pure.
After the recent Covid-19 pandemic, the way that people look at airborne diseases has changed – something so tiny, and invisible has caused such havoc globally that you wouldn’t want to risk even the slightest of flu nowadays. That is why the Philips Air Purifier would be a sound investment in your home.
What’s more, is that this appliance utilizes low energy so leaving it on would not rack up a hefty electric bill. The appliance runs at 50 W max, which is equivalent to a standard light bulb. It also notifies you when the filter needs changing, and its sleep mode dims its display lights as well as tones down the appliance’s noise.
2. Wemo Wi-Fi Smart Plug
You probably see a lot of smart devices in Instagram reels, TikTok videos, or just in TV series and movies, but why spend a lot of money on a bunch of smart devices when you can get a Smart Plug? Sure a smart plug won’t make your thermostat smart or the door lock either, but it can help in many other ways.
The Wemo Smart Plug makes anything plugged into it smart. How is that though? Well, through the Wemo mobile app, you can control the smart plug itself, so by proxy whatever’s plugged into it can be controlled remotely. Additional to that, the Wemo Smart Plug is also compatible with voice assistants like Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant – which means voice-enabled control too!
One thing though about the Wemo Smart Plug is that it features an ‘Away Mode’. And what this entails is that it can keep switching any connected lights on and off to make it seem like you’re home – while you’re actually away.
3. Google Nest Wi-Fi Router
We tend to face Wi-Fi connectivity issues throughout our homes. It’s either that while walking from one room to the next we find the internet lagging or that there may be some corners where there are zero signals altogether. You would’ve never thought of seeing a router in this list but honestly, the Google Nest Wi-Fi Router will be a game changer.
This router alone can cover an area of 2200 square feet with seamless Wi-Fi connectivity regardless of any furniture, walls, or interiors that block signals otherwise. The device is set up and managed through the Google Home mobile app – where you have features like Parental Controls at your disposal in which you can restrict devices from accessing the network, and restrict access to certain content on particular devices otherwise too.
4. Google Nest Mini Smart Speaker
You probably already know about Alexa, Amazon’s voice assistant featured in the Echo Smart Speakers. Well, there’s an alternative by Google that’s even more affordable: the Google Nest Mini Smart Speaker, and here’s why you should definitely get one.
The Nest Mini features 4 subtle colors that can fit right into any living space. The smart speaker isn’t just for playing music from YouTube or your Spotify playlists – which it can with its exceptionally rich bass speakers that can fill up a room, but it’s also great for syncing your phone to if you don’t happen to have any other smart devices around.
Should you have any other smart devices like smart lighting or a smart thermostat, for instance, you can enable voice control by syncing these to the Nest Mini. Furthermore, syncing your phone means being able to take and place calls just with a simple ‘Hey Google’, and even have your texts and emails read out if you can’t get to the phone yourself.
But other than that, the Nest Mini is great for taking down reminders and setting your schedules so that the device can promptly remind you of things in time – and to carry out basic internet searches, as well as checking weather forecasts and traffic situations.
There’s so much you can do with the Nest Mini. So let’s put it this way, it’s like having a virtual assistant in your home.
