Useful Information

So what is a Smart Home?

A smart home contains technology that connects your devices to a specific network which can be controlled, monitored and accessed remotely. Put simply, it allows the devices in your home to talk to each other and help make your life easier. This is the main reason why smart homes are becoming so popular.

There are many smart home products now available on the market, and with their popularity increasing, these products are becoming more intelligent and convenient and are connecting with more devices like Google Home or Amazon Alexa.

How do Smart Homes work?

To create a smart home, you require three components. These three components come together to form a home automation system.

Smart Education Device

Smart Home Hardware

These are devices that have built-in internet capability.

Smart Controller

A control device

These are devices that are used to remotely control your smart home devices.

Smart Router

A reliable Wi-Fi network

This is used to connect your devices so you can control them.

What to consider when purchasing
smart home products?

When choosing a home automation system, it is important to check each product to ensure they are compatible with the control devices you are using.

The three leading artificial intelligence (AI) assistants are Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and Apple’s Siri, which can all perform tasks based on voice commands. Each AI assistant has a different range of products that they can control so you should make sure you pick the assistant most suited to your use and purchase related products for a seamless home automation system.

Smart Monitors

Looking at a small screen throughout the day can hinder your productivity, which is why a monitor is an essential addition to your home setup. It removes the inconvenience of squinting to read the next word in your document, helping to prevent eye strain.

When purchasing a monitor, there is a variance of things to consider. If you are using a smaller corner or hutch desk, you should look at smaller sized monitors or ones with floating bases. If you are using your monitor primarily for written work and data collation, look out for functions such as blue light shields and eyecare optimisation so you can stare at your screen comfortably throughout the day. If you plan on doing a lot of visual media work or want to enjoy your favourite video games after you clock off, look through our selection of gaming monitors with high refresh rates and response times that prevent lag and screen stuttering. You also want to look at the connectivity options of your monitor and determine whether they’re compatible with your home office computer or laptop.

Different brand monitors often come in either curved or flat designs, with a variety of individual functions you can enjoy. If you’re still lost on what monitor to purchase, we’ve rounded up the 10 best monitors for you here,
