I’ve wanted a Smart Home for soooo LOOONG! You see the ads don’t you, where all the cool families are commanding their tech to turn on their lights or their Amazon Echos to play their favourite songs and I’ve honestly, always wanted to be those people….Well, now I am(!) whoop, whoop *shakes booty, (literally), and it’s all thanks to EDF Energy’s Smart Home Store, which you too, ABSOLUTELY NEED IN YOUR LIFE.
EDF Energy have cleverly taken the stress out of finding the best products on the market which can be a complete minefield if you’re anything like me (and wants everything but isn’t quite sure what everything IS), carefully curating smart products that will make life not only more joyful (yay) but also less stressful too. We’re all busy as can be, so being able to use voice recognition to play Classic FM at night when you need to sleep and KISS FM to give you a boost when you wake, or lights which change colour to get the vibe just right, you start to realise life can be enhanced and for not a lot of money or hassle.
You can see me unbox the products I chose which were gifted by EDF Energy in the video below. They were easy to set up and use and make entertaining the kids easier, too.
EXCITINGLY you can use the code SMARTMUM to receive 15% off the entire smart home home store. It ends on Wednesday 12th at 11:59pm.
My boys have certainly become more engaged in the home since feeling they’ve got greater control over the tech, be it asking Amazon Echo and Amazon Echo Dot endless questions (no, she won’t do your homework and NO, she doesn’t want to marry you-not until Mars is inhabited anyway) or having discos in the lounge thanks to the music on demand the Echo provides… and it’s even helped us when it came to drama homework as we dimmed the lights thanks to the Philips Hue LED Lighting Starter Kit (wireless control with a dimmer to change the ambience) and made the yellow light ‘the sun’ and the blue light ‘nightfall’ thanks to the Philips Wireless Multi-Colour bulbs.
We’ve even discovered radio channels we’d never even heard of (Fun Kids Radio Station anyone?).
It’s truly smart to switch to a smart home, people, I’m off for a dance in the kitchen!
