Guides for the Best Apple HomeKit Accessories
With smart home devices, you can ensure that all your lights are off, turn on your appliances remotely or set the mood of a room without moving. For us, the standout feature is the ability to automate how your home reacts to you. With the proper setup, you can:
– set your home lights to turn off when you leave
– have appliances turn off when you arrive home
– have a kettle start boiling water the moment you start using a hair dryer.
Are you worried about the price of these smart accessories? Smart plug’s will cost between $40 – $60 dollars which seems like a lot but if you use the plug to control the phantom power to your entertainment system, the plug will pay for itself in a matter of months.
