  1. What to do When You’ve Broken Your Phone

    I’ve dropped my phone in water, 3 times to be exact. You could say I’m kind of an expert on water damage and all things damaged. Here are some prevention tips and other helpful tips to avoid damaging your phone, and also what to do when the deed is done.

    Get Insurance

    I was never big on phone insurance up until now. You can either get it from your phone’s insurance policy or from your homeowners insurance. With smartphones costing anywhere from $700 and upwards, it might be a safe bet to do this (especially if you’re accident prone like me). It can save you hundreds of dollars and is worth investing in.

    Get a Screen Protector

    I definitely recommend getting a temper glass screen protector and avoiding a plastic one. This is

You can automate anything within seconds, such as every day appliances and devices that you probably didn’t think you’d need. Here are some tips on how to maximize your smart plug:

    Pre-Heat Your Curling Iron

    Whether you’re in bed or doing some other chore, set a timer to have your curling iron or straightener so it’s already heated up in the morning. For this specific function, though, you need an iron that has an on and off switch that is already on to work.

  4. Why You Need a Smart Light Bulb

    Convenience should never get a bad rep. If something’s making your life easier, then why not? SmartHome is making waves in the technology industry currently, however it’s still an upcoming and new technology. One of my current favorite products in our SmartHome lineup are the Smart Bulb. To be fair, this light has so many capabilities and I’m here to tell you why you need a Smart Bulb in your current housing sitch.

    Control Your Light From Anywhere

    This is the best feature of the smart bulb. Having your lights on before entering the house is not only useful, but one of those things we hardly think about improving. For example, every night (before getting my Smart Bulb installed), I found myself stumbling in my room to turn the lamp on - which was about 15 ft from my door. It took me a while to re
