Gadgets make the world go round (not literally â€“ thatâ€™s gravity or something) and there are few places where gadgets and technology are more beneficial than that of the home. All homes today will typically have an abundance of technology in every room of the home and there are some pieces of technology that property owners should be keeping an eye out for in 2013. Letâ€™s take a look at three of the best:
There are some incredibly clever pieces of technology hitting the market in 2013 and amongst the most innovative is that of the Lockitron device pictured which will make those worries about your home security a thing of the past. If youâ€™re anything like me i.e. incredibly forgetful, then there will be days when you leave home for work and, by the time youâ€™ve sat down on the train, will have convinced yourself that you have left your doors, windows or both unlocked.
Well, with the Lockitron device, this neednâ€™t be a cause for concern any longer because you will be able to lock your doors remotely via an internet connection and an app on your smartphone. This is a highly impressive piece of technology and one that homeowners the world over are likely to consider for their properties in 2013 in order to ramp up their home security.
