Five gadgets that make your life easier at home
There may be someone who loves housework, but it’s usually a hassle. Other times, although they are not burdensome, they absorb a lot of time and, therefore, they are the reason to cook less, to avoid wearing that shirt that needs an exquisite ironing… Let’s not forget that technology is on our side. Let’s take advantage of it. We’ve tracked down our favorite gadgets on the TELVA Shopper . Look at them.
he latest data from the National Institute of Statistics say that men spend 11 hours a week cooking and doing other household chores. The women, 20 . In addition to the obvious gap, the reality is that we spend a lot of time keeping the home clean, tidy and stocking the fridge to solve the whole week. To this, of course, we must add the care of the elderly and children, who logically also take an important part of each day.
It is obvious that technology is not enough for everything, but we should not disdain it. There are gadgets on the market that can save us from heavy work, such as sweeping, for example, an action that, especially in families with children, never seems to be enough. Artificial Intelligence is also in our favor, with voice assistants, always ready to answer a question, remind us of a doctor’s appointment or put on our favorite song. And we no longer need to spend our valuable time chopping all the vegetables in one stew thanks to food processors.
It is true that they require an initial investment, but you will see how worth it. Here are some proposals to make your life easier at home:
SPEAKER AND VOICE ASSISTANT
Voice assistants have revolutionized our lives. This one that we show you is the Google Home Chalk wifi speaker , with the technological giant’s built-in assistant. Ask it questions and ask it to do things for you just by saying “Ok Google…”. You can request songs, control the smart appliances you have in your home if you pair them to the device, remind you of important things on your agenda , ask for the news, stream movies to your TV through Chromecast, play music from YouTube Music, Pandora and Spotify… It’s really convenient and keep in mind that it’s compatible with over 1,000 smart home devices from over 150 different brands.
