Now that the holidays have passed, the less-festive parts of the winter season are here.

You’re enduring darker and shorter days, maybe feeling the pain of chapped lips, possibly dealing with a glum mood, most likely dreading more inclement weather (who isn’t) and perhaps struggling to stay warm.

There are a host of smart devices you can use to help combat some of the challenges winter throws your way, including technology that can help keep things comfortable when connected to reliable, fast internet.

  1. Emerson Sensi Touch Smart Thermostat

The Sensi Touch smart thermostat from Emerson is easy to install. It lets you control the temperature in your home from many Wi-Fi accessible devices, including your smartphone.

You can monitor and regulate the temperature of your home while you’re away, including raising the temperature remotely before you and your family arrive home. A smart thermostat is simply essential to any smart home and when used correctly, can greatly improve your home’s comfort level and energy efficiency.

  1. Sharper Image® Wi-Fi Ultrasonic Humidifier

During the winter, you may feel the dry air negatively affecting your skin, lips and more. Using a humidifier can improve the air in a room by adding moisture.

The Wi-Fi controlled Ultrasonic Humidifier from Sharper Image can monitor and regulate the amount of humidity in a room through your smartphone. One of these humidifiers can handle a room up to 500 square feet.

  1. QSun

QSun helps you stay healthier during both the sunny days of summer and darker days of winter. It’s a wearable device that helps you keep track of your exposure to sunlight and the vitamin D levels that impact your mood. The QSun App can be used independently, but with the device, you can boost your experience with more precise suggestions.

These are just a few examples of the smart devices available that can help make the winter season more manageable.

Most smart devices need an internet connection, and the more devices you have or plan to add, the better that connection should be. Chariton Valley’s fiber internet provides the fast speed and reliability you need for the Ultimate Experience. Contact us today to learn more!
