With the future finally upon us, it’s time to get with the program. Smart home technology promises to simplify your life by linking everyday appliances to your smartphone, Amazon Echo, or Google Home device. Finally, you can unburden yourself from laborious tasks like manually turning up the thermostat or physically punching a cook time into your microwave. Prepare to get lazy!
Amazon Basics Microwave
You thought we were kidding about the microwave, didn’t you? This model from Amazon can be paired with your Amazon Echo device, so you can just yell at it when you want something heated up. Unfortunately, you’re still going to have to manually insert and remove your Hot Pockets before eating.
Ecobee Smart Thermostat with Voice Control
You probably knew we weren’t joking about this. Smart thermostats have been around for a while. Not only can this model be controlled using an app on your phone, you can also yell at it. Imagine if someone came over and saw you yelling at all your appliances! That would be quite the scene...
Yeelight Smart LED Bulb
You can’t yell directly at these bulbs, but you can yell at Alexa and Alexa can politely tell them what you would like them to do. The options are: turn on, turn off, get dimmer, get brighter, and switch to any one of 16 million colors. That could be a lot of yelling.
Ecovacs Deebot N79S
Vacuuming actually does suck (get it?), so this thing could be pretty cool. There are a lot of options out there, but this is one of the least expensive, and it’s Amazon Echo compatible. You know what that means – more yelling!
Welcome to the future. It’s a very loud place. For more tips on winning at life, check out the Olympus Corsair blog.
