Apartment buildings are quickly becoming home to the latest home technology and gadgets - so equipping your home with the latest technology accessories will allow integration, usability and to put it simply, make your life a whole lot easier.

Many are afraid of technology, and fear that usability and the computer-literate mind of a hacker is needed to operate, however these technologies are produced by large companies, aimed at the most basic of users - effectively, if one can operate a smart phone, then these technologies will slip in easily with your daily routine and ability.


The Robot Vacuum

This is the most intelligent vacuum to hit the market. The Samsung Navibot signifies the future of home floor cleaning. The robot maps your home’s layout, and plans an optimal cleaning route - and all you need to do is, turn it on. Designed to be able to fit in even the smallest places, like underneath a couch or tv cabinet, the Navibot cleans quickly and efficiently, and when it the dust compartment is full, it will intelligently return to its dock, empty the contents, and get back to work.


Sonos System

This piece of technology allows any device, that you authorise, to play music through the Sonos home entertainment system. Using a new WiFi-based technology, it unites your digital music collection, whether that be iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, and uses one app to access them all. Perfect for entertaining, over a glass of wine, or whilst you are cleaning up, Sonos can be used for almost any occasion you imagine. Sonos is not louder, but clearer. With nine amplified speakers—six midrange and three tweeters—PLAYBAR replaces the steady drip of your TV’s built-in speakers with deep booms, crystal-clear whispers, and huge waves of live concert sound. And with automatic equalization, the system self-adjusts for rich, seamless performance.


June Intelligent Oven

This is no ordinary oven, and is by far the most impressive. Inside June is a camera and Nvidia Tegra processor - the purpose of the two? To recognise what food you have put in, and how long you need to cook it for…duh! Linked to wifi, it then connects to an iOS app on your iPhone, to which you can watch your food cooking in real time, as well as receiving push notifications on when to start preparing other ingredients and or when to re-baste. The June Intelligent Oven is designed to deliver unprecedented oven performance for baking, roasting, broiling, toasting, and slow cooking. June fits easily on your countertop, yet boasts a large 1.0 cubic foot capacity. So you can use it for everything from making elaborate roasts to baking a 12" pizza.
