2020 Home Tech Trends: The Future Is Here!

Are we entering the matrix?

By Georgie Murray | 28th November 2019

Not sure if you’ve heard, but we’re about to say toodles to the twenty-tens, and welcome twenty-twenty. As if that’s not scary enough (time flies when you’re having fun eh?), technology is moving faster than we could have ever dreamed…well, almost. I’m still waiting for a few things from Doc and Marty McFly to pull through. Anyway, while we may not all be living the tech fantasies of hoverboards and bionic vision of our 2000s dreams, technology has transformed the way we do simple everyday tasks. To be on-top of the tech game and welcome 2020 with twenty-twenty tech vision, check out these below trends and products you can install and use in and around your home that are set to take the next decade by storm.

Ding Dong!

A doorbell that tells you when your deliveries arrive: keep an eye on your house (and your deliveries!) with HPM’s ELIOT Connected Doorbell. Equipped with a camera, this doorbell allows you to receive pictures of who is at your door directly to your smartphone! Finally, you can get about your day and not be bunked down at home waiting for your ASOS package’s safe arrival. Photographs of visitors can be sent by push notifications and/or e-mail on several mobile devices. For music lovers, you can even download and customise your own tone – after all, who doesn’t love a bit of Old Town Road while waiting? What about Knock, Knock, Knockin’ on heavens door? The possibilities are endless. Available from leading hardware stores nationally for RRP $198.45 (RRP)

Smart and Sophisticated Shacks

Feel like a Bond, a James Bond.

Arteor with Netatmo is also perfect for a night in of Netflix and Chilling, allowing you to turn on the TV, dim the lights and pop the popcorn all without leaving the couch. Be the smoothest of smooth and impress your date with seamless lighting.
