Whether you are living safely in your home or sitting in a vacation rental property overlooking the waterfront, smart technology can make your life easier. Quality smart technology upgrades in your Ohau vacation home adds a sense of modernity and belonging. Smart technology is a great way to impress guests too. If you want to improve the quality of living in your vacation home, consider adding these technology accessories.

Smart TV

A guest staying at a vacation rental property has never sat down on their couch, grabbed the TV remote and said, “I do enjoy taking the time out of my day to learn the remote button layout to change one channel.” The button layout will likely change with each new place they visit.

Why go through all that trouble when you can use one simple remote
stick to browse a variety of streaming services. The next best alternative to purchasing a smart TV is to buy a USB streaming stick, such as Roku, Fire TV, and Chromecast.

Smart Thermostat

Smart thermostats are slowly becoming standard issue for most homes. Many smart thermostats products are selling for as low as $100. Unlike a traditional thermostat, each intelligent thermostat can be controlled remotely from any room in your Ohau vacation home. Each room in the home can be changed to reflect a different temperature separate from the other rooms. The smart thermostat mobile application analyzes energy consumption and monthly spending habits. If you are considering installing a smart thermostat, check out the products sold by Nest and Ecobee.

Amazon Echo

The Amazon Echo gadget is the perfect voice companion gadget to have in your vacation home. It is a hands-free speaker that responds to your voice commands. You can tell the Echo to play a song, make a call, read a text message, share a joke, and shares the day’s news and weather. The possibilities are endless.

Security camera

It is easier to sleep at night knowing that there is a camera watching over your body. The Nest Cam will send an alert message to your phone if it sees unusual activity outside. It has a small speaker to listen and relay messages through the device. Placing a camera outside of your vacation home is a worthy investment to deter trespassing criminals from entering the property.

Pet camera

For many pet owners, it is hard to leave their beloved furry friend behind at home by themselves. Many pet parents worry about their baby animals just as much as a mom and dad worry about their human child. You no longer have to worry about the whereabouts of your pet with the help of Petcube. Petcube is a portable pet camera that streams video to your TV or smartphone.
