4 Smart Home Technologies to Consider Purchasing
- Dual-Flush Toilets
- Robot Vacuum
Mounted on the top front of the vacuum there’s a prominent infrared beam that detects walls and obstacles and slows down the vacuum when it gets near them; a touch-sensitive bumper stops the vacuum when it actually hits things. Infrared sensors mounted underneath, points straight downward, so it can detect stairs and steep drops. If it feels its brushes might tangle up on tassels or cables, it stops them rotating straight away and drives itself to safety. Robot vacuums have been around for a while so you should be able to find one that fits your budget.
