Now that you’ve decided to upgrade your home to a Smart one, you should also prepare yourself in terms of lifestyle. While there is a large range of options in the market in terms of devices/appliances, each device caters to a particular lifestyle element. So, it’s very important that you are fully aware of the way you live, to enable you to buy the right devices to fit your lifestyle and home environment.

Read on to know what questions you need to ask yourself before getting started with home automation:

  1. Where do you live?

We aren’t talking about your address. Knowing the kind of place you live in is what you need to think about. Your Smart home environment needs to be built based on your actual environment. For instance, if you live in a humid environment, then you will want to buy a dehumidifier. An area with heavy pollution will warrant the use of an air purifier. If there have been many thefts in your area, you may want to install/upgrade your security system.

  1. With whom do you live?

There are certain home automation devices/systems that are particularly useful for certain members of the house. If you have children and or older relatives, consider buying remote Smart indoor cameras (Nest Cam indoor security) and motion sensors (Samsung SmartThings multi-purpose sensors) to enable you to keep an eye on them.

  1. How do you spend your time at home?

Your Smart home appliances must reflect your home life. Buying appliances that don’t fit into your domestic life is a waste, of both your space and money. Make a list of how you spend your time at home. This will make the task of selecting Smart devices simpler. For instance, if you love cooking, you should look at buying Smart frying pans, Smart cookers, Smart roti makers, etc. If jamming is your thing, then a wireless music system like the SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker II from Bose is what you should look at.

  1. What does your typical weekend look like?

The weekend is when most of us get a chance to unwind from the workload of the week. Ask yourself one basic question: do you unwind better indoors or out? If you enjoying lazing about, then maybe you should consider investing in a Smart television (Samsung Smart TV) or a home theatre system (Sony BluRay home theatre system). If you enjoy yoga, you may want to consider buying a SmartMat.

  1. What are your favourite activities?

Who you are as a person is often the key parameter in gauging the kind of devices/appliances that you will want in your home. Smart devices and their applications offer lots of variety in terms of user-specific needs. If you are, for instance, a couch potato, a helping hand may be required to keep your home tidy (Roomba robot vacuum cleaner). If you enjoy listening to music, particularly bollywood, then  the Alexa-enabled Amazon Echo provides the right blend of fun and functionality. If you are an outdoorsy person, and like hiking, devices such as smart clothing (Athos) and smartwatches (FitBit) are for you.
