High tech upgrades on a budget

Smart homes are here to stay but if you live in an older home and have a tight budget there are still plenty of ways to add useful devices to your home.

  • Voice commands: Devices such as Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple Home and Amazon Echo Dot can perform tasks such as playing music, making phone calls and searching the net.
  • Smart security camera: More than a convenience, today’s security cameras are more affordable and can deliver 360-degree coverage in HD.
  • WiFi smart power strip: A great way to control and charge your smart devices from phones to TVs to laptops.
  • Streaming sticks: Connected to your HDMI port on your smart TV, streaming sticks such as Roku let you watch movies and TV episodes as well as Netflix, YouTube and more.
