In recent years, the proliferation of home technology has excelled with the introduction of smart technology in appliances and applications that has taken peoples homes straight into the future. People are looking to make their homes more hi-tech by introducing automation to make their lives easier; from lights that you can control with a simple dictation to coffee you can make by pressing a single button on your phone. But one area of home technology that is often overlooked is hygiene. Let’s look at the ways in which Tweaq can enhance your home’s hygiene through innovative technology to better protect you and your loved ones in your own homes.
What is home technology?
So, What makes a home a smart home? Definitively, a smart home refers to a convenient home setup where the appliances and devices can be controlled remotely and/or automatically from anywhere with an internet connection using a mobile or other device. The devices are interconnected through the internet, allowing the user to control functions such as security systems to the home, central heating and lighting remotely.
Turning your home into a smart home and improving it with the use of home technology can be beneficial in many ways. For example; the convenience, the control and the comfort it gives the user. Home owners can know exactly what is going on in their homes at all times, and can also sit back as automated devices take out some of the tiresome activities involved in everyday life.
More importantly, you can drastically increase the safety of your home with the use of smart security devices that can include; automated lighting, alarm systems with real time information transmitted to your phone as well as live camera feeds so you can sit and watch activity around your home with peace of mind no matter where you are as long as you have an internet connection.
How can the addition of Tweaq improve your home technology?
Users can already purchase automated locks, front door cameras and door motion sensors as part of a smart security system but has anyone ever considered a door handle that cleans itself after use? Think about it. After arriving home from a commute on public transport or just being in contact with numerous objects and surfaces in public places, what is the first thing you touch before getting a chance to wash your hands? Your door handle.
Then ask yourself, when was the last time you cleaned your door handle? It is not something most people are consciously aware of when cleaning their homes. This is why enhancing your home technology is so important and useful! Tweaq’s self cleaning door handle is a perfect piece of smart technology that you really should consider if you are looking to improve your home.
Tweaq’s Rise door handle is activated by sensors that are triggered when the door handle is used. An antibacterial solution is dispensed onto a sponge concealed within the handle that is then moved mechanically across the surface of the handle, wiping out 99.99% of germs within 3 seconds.
What makes Tweaq more inclusive to users is its connectivity. An IoT module is integrated with the self cleaning door handle itself which automatically counts the handle’s daily uses. The door handle communicates through a portal on your phone; transmitting real time data regarding the activity of each door handle you own, as well as the level of antibacterial solution so you know when it is due for a refill.
In the current climate of COVID-19, when good hand hygiene is so important in protecting yourself and others from spreading the disease, improving your home with the self cleaning door handle should not be a question. If you are looking into making your home more smart and developing your home technology to meet the standards of the day then consider fitting Tweaq’s innovative self cleaning door handle to your home, to safeguard you and your loved ones.
