If you would have told a family back in the early 1920s that in the future, homes would be able to be smart and follow the homeowner’s commands, they would have looked at you like you were crazy. The interesting fact about smart homes is that initially, they were simply ideas, not actual living spaces. All the greatest inventions and discoveries by the world’s greatest inventors and visionaries, started out as ideas right? Well, the same thing applies to the idea of smart homes.

The Jetsons Had It Right All Along…

For many decades, the idea of home automation has captivated the world of science fiction. Take a look at one of the most famous cartoons that explored home automation is The Jetsons. The Jetsons debuted in 1962 in primetime on the ABC network and was actually the first show to be broadcast in color. This futuristic cartoon was spot-on with a lot of the technology in the show and a lot of the technology seen in the show, we use today! Not bad for a show that debuted in 1962 but was set in 2062. Some of the technology used in the show included:

  • Video Calling: Apps like Skype, Facetime, and Google Duo have allowed consumers to talk to family and friends as well as conduct business all while seeing them in real-time. Video calling is used a lot of times instead of going to business meetings.
  • Robot Vacuums: The Jetsons were able to have the luxury of minimal housework due to their robot vacuum. The robot vacuum the Jetsons had is the equivalent to Today’s Roomba. Just like in the Jetsons, the Roomba was battery operated and utilized sensors to avoid bumping into furniture.
  • Robot Assistants: Rosie was the Jetsons’ rolling and talking robot. She handled all the chores of the house and kept the family organized. The equivalent of that today would be Amazon’s Alexa and the Google Assistant.

The brilliant minds behind this amazing cartoon have definitely contributed to the world’s advancements in technology. Although the world has a long way to go before the invention of flying cars and conveyor belts in the home, the world is making big strides in creating smart homes to make home life much easier and convenient for families all over the world.

Making Your Home a Smart Home

So what exactly is the “it factor” that makes a home smart? To get straight to the point, the answer to that question is the internet. Things like your air conditioner, thermostat, and lights can be controlled by a mobile device and as long as those things are connected to the internet, it can make your home be considered as a smart home.

It can seem quite daunting to go through the set up of turning your home into a smart home but once you do it, life at home is so much easier… take it from the Jetsons… life is so much better when your home is smart! 

Now, you can easily buy a plethora of different components like security cameras, speakers, and other smart knick-knacks and connecting everything to a hub that allows the components to communicate with each other and with you but doing so can get very expensive and it can mean spending lots of time setting everything up. 

The reality is, a few basic and cost-efficient necessities can give you the same smart home experience as would the higher end expensive products. Just remember, the most important part of connecting all the components with you is to make sure you have a strong and fast internet connection as well as a good wireless router that can get to every nook and cranny of your home… without it, your house won’t be smart at all. Here are some of the basic essentials needed to make your home a smart home.

Select the Assistant You Want

When it comes to voice-controlled virtual assistants, there are quite a few to choose from. If you have Apple products, you’ll probably want to stick with Siri but Google’s Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa are great options as well. They make it easy to control some of the basic household activities like turning on the lights or playing music. By simply saying “Hey Siri, play American Woman by Lenny Kravitz” or “Alexa what time is it?” your home is virtually interacting with you.

Get a Smart Audio System For Multiple Rooms

The cool thing about audio systems in smart homes is that they have capabilities to stream music from any room in your house where you have a speaker. Not only do these speakers play streaming music but they also have capabilities to completely change your TV and movie-watching experience. If you stream TV and movies from a streaming device, you can get a soundbar for any room and have the capabilities to enjoy smooth playback with zero buffering.

Make Your Home Safe With Smart Security Cameras

No one ever wants to feel unsafe in their own home and that’s why having smart security cameras installed can give you that added feeling of safety when you’re at home and even when you’re away from home. Indoor security cameras will allow you to keep an eye on your children as well as pets. 

Outdoor cameras will allow you to catch unwanted visitors in the act… once you get notified of an intruder, an alarm will go off and hopefully discourage the intruders from coming back, since they’d quickly find out that they’re being watched. Psychology Today states that home is where you’re supposed to feel safe and that includes feeling safe emotionally too. If you feel that your home isn’t safe, it can take a major toll on your overall health.

Light Your Home With Smart Lighting

If nothing else at all that’s “smart” in someone’s home, the main thing that people want is smart lighting. There are lots of smart lighting systems that work well and communicate with other smart home components without a hub. There are even certain bulbs that communicate very well over Wi-Fi, while others communicate better via Bluetooth.

There is nothing more exciting than moving into a new apartment. Once you’ve signed the lease, you are ready to make a fresh new start and put your style stamp on it to make the space your own. One of the most important rooms in your new home is the bedroom. By creating a stylish and calming space, you can have somewhere relaxing to hang out when you are not on duty. A well-ordered bedroom can even help you to sleep better.

However, the perfect sleeping space also has to be practical. It is no good having a gorgeously decorated room if there is nowhere to store your belongings. Otherwise, you will find it hard to keep your room neat and organized. Everyone knows the obvious furniture items you need for a bedroom like a bed and night stand. However, there are some less obvious essential furniture items which you should consider.

A Dressing Table

If you’ve got a large room, a dressing table can make an elegant addition to your decor. Dressing tables with mirrors help to reflect light around your room, giving a feeling of airiness even if natural light is scarce. However, they’re also very practical. It is far easier to get yourself looking polished and presentable in the morning if you have a dedicated space to get ready in. Try to pick one with plenty of drawers to keep make-up, hair products and other loose items organized. It is also important to make sure that the dressing table you choose has enough room to store larger items like your hair dryer or flat iron, as these can make surfaces look cluttered.

A Storage Furniture

 If you want your space to be calming, it is really important to have plenty of storage to keep clutter out of sight. Of course, you will need a wardrobe and chest of drawers as a bare minimum to keep your clothes in. However, there are lots of ways you can incorporate extra storage into your room by using clever furniture, even if your space is very small. Here are some of the tips:

  • Buy a bed with storage space under the mattress or drawers
  • Choose a pouffe or ottoman which doubles as a storage box
  • Use vertical space by installing shelving on the walls

A Desk

It is generally best to keep the work out of your bedroom if you want to sleep well. However, there are lots of situations where it’s unavoidable, for example, if you live in a studio apartment or in a house share where the bedroom is the only space that’s exclusively yours. If this is the case for you, it is best to have a desk to work on so that your bed is kept just for sleep.

Unless your bedroom is enormous, you’ll want this to be as space-saving as possible. You can buy very compact desk or even models which fold up against the wall when not in use. Built-in drawers make it easier to store away your papers and other bits and pieces so your work isn’t constantly staring you in the face.

An Armchair

 While not strictly an essential, a comfortable easy chair is a lovely item to have in your bedroom. It adds a touch of luxury and gives you a place to relax and watch TV or read. Of course, you could do this in your bed. However, it is known that keeping your bed just for sleeping is better for getting a good night’s sleep, and could be especially helpful if you find nodding off at night difficult. Be careful not to fall into the age-old trap of flinging your clothes on the chair at the end of the day. Otherwise, your cozy reading spot will soon become an eyesore.

A Linen Hamper

Many people forget their bed linen when they are planning storage in their bedroom. However, linen is bulky and requires its own dedicated storage area if you don’t want it swallowing up your wardrobe space. An elegant linen hamper solves this problem perfectly. You can buy upholstered versions to make it work double-time as a seating solution.

Hopefully, you now know all the unexpected pieces that will really make your bedroom scheme come together. By thinking beyond the obvious, you can optimize storage and keep messes out of sight. Picking items of furniture which perform more than one function is an especially handy trick if, like so many people, you live in a small apartment and space is in short supply.

Is it safe to use essential oils? This is one of the most sought-out questions by most people. Everyone wants to know whether there are risks involved in using essential oils.  The good news is that most essential oils are free from severe side effects which make them safe to use. However, since you are introducing something new into your body, it is wise for you to intelligently avoid any risks.

Although studies have shown essential oils to have very few side effects when you use them according to how they are recommended, due to the many brands of essential oils available in the market, it is highly advised to use the right methods. We are going to talk about the best ways to use essential oils to make them safe for you.

1. Follow the Right Dosage

One thing you have to always keep in mind is that when it comes to using essential oils, you have to follow the right dosage. This is the most important factor to consider for your safety to be guaranteed. There are some essential oils which when the doses are used wrongly, the high concentration might contribute to the development of tumor and other harmful body changes. There are also various essential oils that can damage your liver, skin, and other body organs if you don’t use them properly. There is no other way to emphasize this other than the fact that you have to utilize any type of essential oil that you’re using in the right manner. Similar to most drugs, you have to follow the right dosage in order for them to be as effective as they are required to be.

2. Check on the Application Method

There are many ways to use essential oils. If an essential oil is safe when applying in one way, it doesn’t mean that it will be safe if you use it in another way. You have to ensure that the application method you use is the right one for the essential oil that you’re using. Some essential oils are safe to inhale, but cause irritation when applied to your skin. Some good examples of such essential oils are oregano, cinnamon bark, thyme, and clove. There are several essential oils that can cause skin cancer or severe burns, also known as phototoxicity, if they are exposed to sun-bed radiation or sunlight, if you apply them onto your skin but don’t cause any side effects if you inhale them. When buying any essential oils, you have to clarify the right application method, the intended use, as well as the concentration to be on the safe side. A word of caution is that you should never ingest any essential oils without getting the right guidance from a professional. Also, dilute essential oils before applying to the skin. Note that you cannot apply any essential oils directly onto your skin without diluting because this can be a huge risk to take.

3. Consider Using Diffusers

You might be wondering whether diffusers are safe, judging by the way they have become popular. Diffusers are normally used to vaporize essential oils which then help to release small amounts into the air. If you are using oils in diffusers, you have to apply the same safety concerns that are there when we talk of inhaling essential oils. The good thing is that inhalation is known to be safer as it has very low risks. Oil diffusion should not be done around young children, newborns, nursing or pregnant women, pets, and even babies. Also, if you happen to have asthma you should not inhale or diffuse essential oils because the fragrance normally triggers respiratory reactions. A diffuser should be used for about 30 to 45 minutes at a time for it to be most effective. Don’t plug in a diffuser overnight and you should always fill it up with the right amount of water then make sure you read all the instructions well before using. All essential oils should be kept away from any flames because they are highly flammable. Before using a diffuser, you should make sure your home is well ventilated. There so many oil diffusers you can consider.

4. Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is a good option to consider for using essential oils safely. Aromatherapy uses essential oils in a medicinal manner to your body’s health, spirit, and mind. Aromatherapy is a method that has been used for thousands of years in different cultures from countries like Egypt, China, and even India. In fact, aromatherapy and diffusers are highly recommended as safe alternatives for using essential oils. For more on that, you can read more here for the right knowledge about the best oil diffuser to consider for using during aromatherapy. Aromatherapy works through skin absorption and sense of smell using products like inhalers, diffusers, hot and cold compresses, bathing salts, aromatic splitzers, and facial steamers. Aromatherapy helps to manage pain, boost immunity, improve digestion, soothe sore joints, and improve sleep quality. There are also other plenty of benefits that result from using aromatherapy. The conditions that aromatherapy helps to treat include;

  • Depression
  • Asthma
  • Alopecia
  • Menstrual issues
  • Inflammation
  • Menopause
  • Peripheral neuropathy

Popular aromatherapy essential oils include;

  • Lemon
  • Geranium
  • Patchouli
  • Peppermint
  • Rosemary
  • Mandarin
  • Ginger
  • Fennel

5. Essential Oils and Drug Interactions

When it comes to drug interactions, there isn’t much published about the topic. There hasn’t been much research conducted regarding the interactions of chemical drugs and essential oils. Essential oils carry complex chemistry, which is why it may be likely or possible for them to interact with chemical drugs. However, it is highly recommended for you to check with a healthcare provider just like with herbs and supplements, in order to analyze any potential benefits and risks that may be involved.

There is no denying the fact that essential oils have plenty of benefits that exceed even the side effects. Essential oils have been used for years and they have proven to be effective. The side effects just show that nothing can ever be perfect, however good it is. Therefore, always ensure you are doing the right thing when using any type of essential oils.

Home improvement is tremendously increasing among homeowners. Homeowners improve their homes for various reasons; may be they want to sell it, and so for it to attract a reasonable amount, some improvements are required. Some do home improvements to make their home feel more comfortable, while others do it just to impress their guests.

When you want to improve your home, you should add some elements that will make your home more comfortable than it is now. Adding some accessories to your home can make it look sophisticated. Before you embark on your home improvement journey, you should ensure that you are available throughout the process.

Here are some tips to help you improve your home.

  1. Replace your roof if it’s old

A new roof can give your home a fresh and new look. Roof replacement is a significant investment that has an apparent effect on the appearance, function, and value of your home. You should hire an expert roofer from Imperial Seamless Gutter Company to come and inspect the roof before he can replace it. Replacing your home does not only improve your home, but it also prevents you from further costs of repairing the roof.

  • Repaint your house

One of the cheapest and easiest ways to improve your home is to add fresh paint. Fresh paint can make a home to appear brighter and bigger. You can paint small rooms like bedrooms by yourself. But larger rooms such as living rooms require a professional.

  • Have the home inspected by professionals

Whether you want to sell your home or not, you should have it inspected. Home inspection gives you a detailed report on the condition of your home; it can identify any problems and security threats and help you fix these problems. A Home inspection can also give you the market value of your home.

  • Clean out your pantry

Cleaning and organizing your pantry is also one of the ways you can improve your home. Items such as expired food and old spices should be thrown out. In most cases, you find that the drawers in the kitchen are full of worn out dish rags or unused utensils.

Any item that you no longer use should also be thrown away. You can also organize your kitchen drawers by storing a certain category of items, for instance, you can use one drawer for spoons and cutleries, and then you can store your utensils on another. This will make your drawers clean and organized.

  • Organize your home

An organized home is a comfortable home. An organized home can be more appealing to a potential buyer, and it can attract a good amount of money if you were to sell it. Organizing a home is convenient and affordable.

If you are planning on organizing your home, you should start with rooms that you spend most of your time in and then move to the other rooms. You can look for a permanent storage for items that you don’t use regularly.

It would be great if it has a different variety of vehicles for you to choose from and it’s close by. According to the people at Price 4 Limo and Bus Rental services, these entertainment vehicles should be accessible nationwide in the United States, with a wide variety of entertainment packages. So the closer it is for you to pick up the better. Remember to read the terms and conditions and the fine print, ask if the vehicles are insured or not as well just to be safe.

A Perfect Limo for The Perfect Prom Night

One of the most special nights in every high school senior’s life is prom night. It’s an evening of great music, dancing, dressing up in stylish dresses and tuxedos, and, of course, the crowning of the prom king and queen. But do you really want to make your way there in a normal car or have your parents drop you off? Wouldn’t it be better to have the grandest entrance ever by arriving in a limo? You can even have an awesome ride inside before you get there; it’s an amazing and super fun experience that you will remember for the rest of your life.

A Girls Night Out 

A limo isn’t just for prom nights, it can be for any celebration. What if one of your friends just got promoted and you want to celebrate with her in a memorable and ultra exciting way? Renting a limo or party bus to take her and the rest of your besties for a ride can be just the right thing you need to enjoy this great occasion. Ride around, dance or drink on the bus, or cheer through the limo’s sunroof while celebrating. Maybe going down to the nearest club to get your dance on some more and bust out some moves. Everything you do together would be remembered and cherished for many years to come.

Gotta Catch That Ball Game

So you and your buddies have tickets to the next sporting event/game but you want to make it extra special. Instead of everyone getting there by themselves or through carpooling, why not kick it up and notch and rent a nice sprinter van or a party bus to take you there? You can all cheer and goof around together and share some beers before the big game. Set aside all your worries and responsibilities just for one day to have a blast with your friends.

Party Hard And Make Memories

With good company and fun moments with friends, every occasion or celebration can be extra special when you go the extra mile. Do something out of the ordinary by renting any of the different vehicles for that day/night. Be original and fresh, enjoy your time together, and remember to have fun!

Insulation is a very vital aspect of your house as it protects you from extreme weather conditions. However, when your house insulation goes bad, it may cause you a lot of problems which can escalate and cause actual harm. For example, poor insulation can cause you discomfort or even danger as the temperature regulation and air quality are compromised. When insulation becomes damp, has deteriorated, or been infested by pests, it needs to be replaced.  It is not easy to tell that your insulation needs to be removed but worry not! Here are a few signs that will show you that you need insulation replacement;

1. Changing temperature in your house.

If you notice the temperature in your house is changing regularly, then this may be a sign that the insulation in your attic or crawl space needs to be replaced. Most times, the variation in temperature is as a result of the insulation shifting, thus allowing heat and cold air into your house. This will, in turn, compromise your heating and cooling system’s attempts to regulate the temperature inside your house. Sometimes, this problem can be fixed by simply resetting your insulation or adding extra batting. However, most times, you will need to replace your insulation.

2. Wet insulation

In case your insulation becomes damp, sopping wet, or moist, there is nothing that can be done to fix it. The insulation must be replaced. If you have blocked vents, a basement flood, a leaking roof, or the absence of vapor barriers, your insulation can get wet. Moisture can render your insulation ineffective. This results from the air pockets essential for trapping air and regulating temperature, being filled with water instead. Worse still, it can cause mold to grow, thus releasing life-threatening myotoxins into your house.

3. High energy bills

High energy bills are a good indication that your insulation has problems. Inefficient insulation in your house causes the weather outside to sneak into your home. During the summer, your air conditioner is forced to work twice as hard. During the winter the heater must work extra hard to keep your home at an appropriate and comfortable temperature as well. This results in a dramatic rise in energy costs. If you are experiencing this, it is essential that you have insulation removal and replacement as soon as possible.

4. Pest infestation

If animals such as mice, rats, squirrels, bats and such have made your attic and crawlspace their home, then it is time for a replacement. Getting rid of the animals will not fix your problems, as they may have already left grime and feces on your insulation. It may also be possible that some of them have left their young ones or developing eggs hidden there. Even if there are no visible signs of that, it is vital to have your insulation inspected. If you find out that the damage cannot be reversed, it might just be time for new insulation.

Take Away

You cannot live in a house which has damaged, inadequate or no insulation at all, especially if you live in extreme weather.  If it turns out that your insulation is damaged after identifying some of the signs as mentioned above, have it replaced as soon as you can.

8 Perfect Storage Ideas for Saving Space https://smarthomessystem.com/8-perfect-storage-ideas-for-saving-space/ https://smarthomessystem.com/8-perfect-storage-ideas-for-saving-space/#respond Thu, 18 Jul 2019 10:44:17 +0000 https://smarthomessystem.com/?p=994 Whenever you’re planning your layout, you’re bound to focus on the best and most essential parts of your house: the kitchen, the living room, bedrooms and others.

Whenever you’re planning your layout, you’re bound to focus on the best and most essential parts of your house: the kitchen, the living room, bedrooms and others. No one ever walks into your house and says, “Alright, show me the attic!” or “show me where you’re keeping all your winter clothes!”

Storage isn’t exciting and it’s often left till the very end. Your storage places usually end up being “whatever isn’t being used”.  After all, you probably have a lot of stuff lying around your house and it needs a place to go. 

But, there are great ways to make your storage spaces acceptable, look good and out of the way. You’re already making your house smart, so why not make it storage smart? There’s no guarantee you’ll be making storage fun or attractive, but you can definitely make it easier on you and wow your next houseguests.

Under the Bed

It was always easy to sweep away the clutter and mess under the bed as a child, but now’s the time to make it an easy storage space. Some beds have cabinets built in, making it an easy place to store clothes or toys.

If you’re looking to go the DIY route, you can turn a cabinet shelf on its side and add wheels under. Put a handle on the “top” of the shelf for easy pull out. Use the shelves as dividers for whatever you decide to put under your bed. 

Make Use of Tables

That coffee table in the middle of your room doesn’t have to be for old magazines and watermarks when people forget to use coasters. 

Look for coffee tables that have storage underneath. Some are even able to fold up, adding a second level of sorts. It’s perfect to store whatever you don’t want on your table.

Just Hanging Around

Verticality is a lost art when it comes to space saving, so make the most of it in your kitchen. Your mother may have used a hanging fruit basket when you were younger and now is a great time to break it back out.

You don’t have to limit your basket to just fruit and you don’t have to limit the basket to the kitchen either. It can be used for dog toys, tools or other household items. 

Top of the Cabinet to You

Many people’s kitchen cabinets do not extend to the top of the ceiling. An easy storage option is getting boxes or baskets that match the wall’s color.

That way, you can store those non-essential items away and have the boxes and baskets blend into the wall. It’s a sort of camouflage aspect that can have your items and stuff hiding in plain sight. 

Barn Doors

No, you don’t have to move out to the country to take advantage of barn doors but instead add them in your own home.

One way of saving space in your closet and room is to add a barn door and instead of opening and blocking space means you can simply slide them back and forth. They are also one of the many things in style that will help bring your home into 2019.

Manage those Wires

Since you’re a human being living in the 21st century, you’ve got tons of gadgets lying around. Wireless power is still something the future holds for us and until then, you’re bound to have wires hanging around everywhere.

There are plenty of unique tricks to keeping your wires out, but the best way is to take binder clips and clip them to the edge of a table. String the wires and cables through the openings to help manage your wires and keep the clutter away. There are plenty of other people who have used LEGO people to hold wires in tact, a great idea for children!

Magnetize It

Magnets make not only a cheap souvenir, but also an easy way to store your makeup, spices or desk items. Put a metal board along the wall and glue your items to tin cans. 

Easily hang the tin cans and move them at any time as well.

Hanging your Shoes

Your shoes can take up a lot of space along the floor or simply act as household landmines. Nail a pegboard to the back of your closet door and easily hang your shoes there.

Make sure the pegs are long enough so they reach to the back of the heel of the shoe.
