5 Smart Home Gadgets for An Eco-Friendly Lifestyle

Going eco-friendly about everything has become a trend, but now more than ever, shifting to environment-friendly has become something of significance for the sustenance of human life and not just a superficial fad. In its 2020 report, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration found that 2019 was the 10th warmest year on the record for North America and the 5th warmest year on the record for the continental US.

The effect of our bad habits has always taken a toll on the environment, and now it has also started showing up in the form of natural disasters and diseases.

Why Eco-Friendly Smart Home Gadgets?

It is up to all of us to do our part to minimize energy inefficiencies and curb our wasteful habits. Besides following better lifestyle adjustments like turning off the faucet while brushing teeth and recycling, another way is to make your home eco-friendly, which uses fewer natural resources.

Whether you are a homeowner or a renter, investing in green gadgets helps you save energy and resources. Check out these unique home gadgets:

Smart Thermostat

Smart thermostats learn your preference and patterns, enabling you to control the temperature of your home remotely and can also react to your phone’s GPS location and auto-start heating or cooling. The best in the market is Google Nest Thermostat that turns itself down when you leave, so you don’t waste energy heating or cooling an empty home.

IKEA's collection of solar-powered lighting sets

The furniture giant released their latest line of sustainable yet artistic solar lightning elements at an affordable price. The product line includes different lights, including post lights, up lights, stylish hanging globes, and even pendant-style lights. So if you want to have that backyard night party, this is the way to have it in a cheap and eco-friendly way.

Water Leak Sensors

Everyday household leaks account for almost 1 trillion gallons of wasted water each day, according to the EPA. That amount is similar to 1,500 Olympic-sized swimming pools. Like Eve Water Guard Leak Sensor, a smart leak sensor is a quick and easy solution for monitoring leaky points throughout your home. The sensor sends a notification on your phone when it detects a leak so you can address it immediately. It has a loud alarm, a solid build and can integrate with AirPlay2 and smart lights.

Wireless Electronics

Wireless gadgets are very convenient. You can invest in a solar phone charger that allows you to charge your phone battery on the go when you don’t have time to charge your phone. The smart plugs enable you to operate your electronic devices remotely and are perfect for clumsy people who forget to switch off their devices.

Smart Sprinkler Controller

If you have a sprinkler system, there are chances it turns on and off automatically, even if it is already raining. Smart sprinklers can detect the weather or collect data from the web and adjust the water amounts and scheduling based on the forecast. According to Wirecutter, the Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controller is the best way to ensure you don’t water your lawn right before or during a rainstorm.
