Technology Gadgets


As we drive further into living in a digital age, technology has infiltrated all parts of our lives- and the home is no exception. And as we enter a new year, what’s better than a fresh start with some new home technology? Here at We Buy Any House, we have compiled the top five technological gadgets so far in 2022. 

Nest Protect:

Available on Amazon and retailing for around £89, the Nest Protect is the third generation of the revolutionary technology of smoke and carbon monoxide detector. Detectors are mandatory by law in any home; however, many homeowners admit to not keeping up to date with their installation- which means that many of us are living without the right protection for our properties and lives. The Nest Protect integrates a learning thermostat with a camera- which then uses various distributions of light to inform homeowners of potential fires. The device even tells you how fast the fire is burning and will continually test for low battery and other Nest devices that are active in the home.

Ecobee Smart Thermostat:

Smart thermostats are all the rage in home technology and have become a popular staple across the modern home. They are great for saving energy, reducing bills and can even add value to the price of your property. The Ecobee Smart Thermostat is priced at around £250 and works excellently with Amazon Alexa’s. The device is designed to bring controlled comfort to your home and monitors the heating and cooling system in your home. It will automatically pause your heating and cooling if it detects there are open windows or doors and can save you up to 23% on your bills.


How many times do we throw away an empty packet of food and think “I must remember to restock that”- and then forget. It happens to all of us! A great way to get on top of this is to invest in a GeniCan. Costing around £73, the GeniCan basically allows you to add items to an electronic shopping list as you dispose of empty food packaging. This way, you won’t forget to add household items to your list ever again!

Robot Vacuum:

Perhaps the greatest thing to come out of home technology is the robot vacuum. An answer to all of your hatred for mundane cleaning tasks, the robot vacuum is literally at your service- and can be controlled remotely. Depending on the model and brand you get, they range in price from £29.99 to £499. They work without you needing to supervise them, and after they have charged overnight, most have a running time of 100 minutes. With a triple-filter system, the vacuum is a high performer, and has multiple settings for automatic cleaning- including a built-in mop!

Faber Hood T-Light:

This wall mounted hood vent is a great way to add a sleek piece of technology to your kitchen and can transform a typical bulky kitchen necessity into something elegant. Either coming in a stainless steel or a white matte, the wall cooker vent has built in LED lighting which can illuminate your kitchen as you wish.
