When you rent an apartment, you have the luxury of having a space that’s your own without having to go through the headache of getting a mortgage. However, you are also limited in how many changes you can make your home. Luckily, they’re likely isn’t much stopping you from adding a few smart gadgets to your apartment. After all, they may make the space more convenient and potentially lower your utility bills in the process.
When we say smart lights, we’re mostly talking about smart light bulbs. These bulbs can be controlled via your smartphone or other device and can even have timers set to them indicating when you want to shut them off. Many smart bulbs also have the ability to change color which allows you to have the vibe of your apartment vary to your liking.
Between Google Home and Amazon Alexa hubs, you can essentially automate everything in your apartment. From the lights to your entertainment system (and maybe even your appliances) you can set commands and timers that make it easy to control most things in your home without having to get off the couch.
You may need to ask your landlord if you’re allowed to switch out the current thermostat in your apartment, but if you are, you should strongly consider doing so and getting a smart thermostat. Not only do these devices allow you to better control your heating and cooling system as they learn your comfort preferences, but they also can help save you money on your utility bills by doing so.
