In the modern world, technology has an answer for everything. There are smart cars, smart phones and even smart homes. One of the newest trends is syncing features of your home’s technology to your phone, making them accessible from anywhere in the world.

Whether you’re turning on the air conditioner or turning off the iron, there’s an app for almost anything that you want to do.

Nest – The next best thing in home temperature control is here. Nest is a sleek and slim thermostat that learns your heating and cooling preferences and builds a personalized schedule based on your patterns. The makers of Nest even promise up to a 20 percent savings on your electric bill.

Dropcam – With the advent of social media, it’s easier than ever for home intruders to know when you’re away from home. Dropcam is the home video monitoring camera that helps you keep an eye on your home even when you’re not there. This device uses a sensor to send push notifications directly to your phone when it senses motion.

Lockitron – Never get locked out of your home again! Lockitron lets you unlock your doors from anywhere in the world. You can even give your friends and family access to your home by sending them an unlock email. Don’t worry – the lock and key is still a backup option if your phone’s batteries are low.
