2. Washing machine and dryer
This sounds like a no-brainer, but investing in a smart quality washing machine and dryer can save you time and give you peace of mind. The latest washing machine and dryer combos LG SIGNATURE Smart wi-fi Enabled Washer/Dryer Combo often have WiFI that enables you to manage the controls remotely.
What if you forgot to start the machine before rushing to the office? Open the app and run the cycle when you’re on your commute. Need the clothes to be dry by the time your children come home? With a few taps, you can start the dryer wherever you are, be it at work or even while enjoying a leisurely dinner outside.
These washing machines can even measure and dispense the right amount of detergent automatically to your laundry load. You can also pre-set the water usage per load. Not only do you save time, but you also save money in the long run.
3. Smart oven
Use voice recognition to decide on preheating the oven, or setting the temperature and duration. Save yourself the time and hassle from fiddling with buttons Some smart ovens like the June Life Oven plus Gourmet Package have smart food recognition which allows them to recognise the food you bought and automate the temperature and duration required to cook, bake, roast, dehydrate or bake your food.

5. LED Lights
Light bulbs are a necessity in every inch of your household. Take the leap and switch your traditional incandescent (60W) and fluorescent (12W) lights, to a 9W smart LED light bulb. If you get smart LED lights like the Wyze Bulb, you can even schedule when they will turn on and off automatically according to your daily routine. Switching off lightbulbs during daylight hours will help minimise energy consumption. With savings within such close reach, there’s no reason not to make the switch.
