It’s almost Christmas so here are some things to add to your wish list! Just kidding – but our countdown to Christmas has already begun. Regardless, we wanted to share five of 2022’s best smart appliances for your home. These appliances are bound to make your daily life easier through their heightened effectiveness and efficiency, leaving you with more time to do the things you love and keep your home clean.
#1: Kitchen – Instant Pot Smart WiFi 6 Quart
The Instant Pot has been increasingly popular. It is great for couples making a quick meal, a large family, or a busy college student. Really, it is great for anyone. In case you are unfamiliar with it, The Instant Pot is an 8-in-1 cooking device that functions as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, and steamer – the list goes on. The Instant Pot is versatile and easy to use, allowing you to cook a wide range of things with just one new appliance. Now, the Instant Pot Smart Wifi edition offers even more perks. Once you connect to the WiFi of this smart version, the pot and its paired app give you the benefits of cooking, scheduling, adjusting, and monitoring the progress of your meals on the go right from your smartphone. You can then make a list of your favorite one pot recipes like fried rice, soup, and so on to prepare. Cooking couldn’t get any easier!
#2: Bedroom – A Bedside Speaker
A bedside speaker is a must if you want to put away your phone but still enjoy some of its benefits – like an alarm clock. Our favorite models for the bedroom are the Amazon Echo Dot With Clock and the Google Nest Mini. They won’t crowd your nightstand, let you set alarms, play music, and so on. Plus, they encourage you to unplug from your screens and not just keep your phone under your pillow. But, you can still enjoy the perks, as these bedside speakers allow you to listen to music before bed and wake up with a modern alarm.
#3: Bathroom – Kohler Moxie Showerhead & Wireless Speaker
If you’re really looking to elevate your space, the bathroom is a great place to start feeling a little luxurious. One of our favorite investments is the Kohler Moxie Showerhead. Really, do your research and find any shower head that has the right upgrades for you. But, what makes this one special is its variety of advanced features: This ultimate showerhead and wireless speaker combo is a great way to really turn your shower into a personal concert. It is the full experience as it comes with not only the music or podcast, but also different water pressure settings to suit you. As they say, let superior sound wash over you!
Even better, the speaker is removable and easily transportable, so you can take it with you to the beach or pool.
#4: Living Room – Smart Vaccum
As for the living room, it was really hard to choose. Between a variety of smart TV’s, speakers, and LED lights, there are several options to take your living room to the next level. It truly comes down to personal preference and what you and your family enjoy most. However, one of our favorites that we wanted to share with you is actually a vacuum. Vacuums continue to get smarter and smarter but we absolutely love the Roborock robot. Our runner up was definitely the classic Roomba models, but this newer competitor is slowly taking the top spot among vacuum aficionados and even cleaners. The Roborock robot has so many amazing features that a few sentences would not really do it justice. So, pulling straight from their website, here is a list of just some of the cool things that it comes with and can do: ‘Fully Automated Empty Wash Fill Dock, 5100Pa High Power Suction, PreciSense™ LiDAR Navigation, ReactiveAI 2.0 Obstacle Avoidance, Off-Peak Charging Supported, Real-Time Video Call, Adaptive Route Algorithms, 3D Mapping Support, Automatic Room Recognition, Sonic Vibrating Mop, Intelligent Mop Lifting, Ultrasonic Carpet Recognition, ScratchSafe™ Wheels and Brushes, Work with Alexa & Google Home, Child Lock, Fast Charging”. In layman’s terms, this vacuum really does it all. It is able to map effectively and recognize the rooms of your home. It is able to connect with your other home speakers and devices, and even allows you to video call. It just gets better and better so we had to include it in the list.
#5: Outdoors – Ring Security Cameras
Security cameras can sometimes be controversial due to privacy concerns. However, if you are comfortable with it, ring security cameras make it so easy to monitor your surroundings. You can invest in the doorbell and camera combination to keep track of your front door. This is great to have footage of who all is entering, leaving packages, and so on. You can also invest in other outdoor cameras for your backyard and garage to secure all the fronts of your home. These are great if you have increasing concerns about the safety of your home while you are away at work or on vacation as well. Sometimes, they even capture cute memories and moments that you can replay and save for fun!
