Shop five smart gadgets that could help reduce your household bills
Technology is always evolving, and the latest style many homeowners are jumping on board with is a smart home.
But what is a smart home?
A smart home is a property where all of the gadgets and devices inside are connected through the internet, which means they can all be controlled by a main monitor, or your smart phone.
People can even sync their kettle or coffee machine, radio and lights to come on at a certain time in the morning through their devices, and programme a variety of other settings too.
The heating can also be controlled in the same way, whether you are indoors or heading home after a long day and do not want to return to a cold room.
Smart homes are hugely popular because they can help to reduce your household bills, especially when working from home.
Financial experts at thinkmoney claim turning the heating down by one degree below your usual temperature can save you a huge £80 per year, while leaving five plugs on every day will see your electricity bill shoot up to £491 per year.
For those looking to transform their house, or flat, into a smart home, and save money on bills, there are a few basic essentials to help you on your way.
