Research out today suggests that the modern house manager spends just two hours a week on housework and expects to spend none at all in 20 years’ time.
If you’re part of this smart-home technology revolution, below are a few of the smart home devices out there you might find useful (depending on your level of laziness).
If you’re not a fan of hovering with a few hundred pounds to spare, the Navibot vacuum cleaner might make your chores even easier. Shaped like a circular dish with wheels, the Samsung hover has sensors and two brush arms designed to sweep up dirt. The vacuum uses a camera that makes a map of the entire area, so that it cleans the entire floor. Other sensors detect obstacles, enabling it to clean staircases as well as cleaning more efficiently.
Samsung also provide a WF457 washer dryer that can be controlled by an 8-inch color touchscreen or an app on a mobile device. It allows users to choose a washing cycle via their smartphone, as well as setting alerts to show when the task is completed.
Unique Automation sells a Bath-O-Matic that comes with an app, allowing users to run their tub from the train, with just the right amount of bubbles.
