The best Apps to control every corner of your house
Ever since Eugene Polley invented the remote control for television in 1955, humans have
dreamed of being able to control everything that happens in their home practically without
leaving the sofa. And now, thanks to technology, this possibility is available to anyone.
Among the «classic» Home Apps, the pioneering Houseinhand knx stands out , designed to
manage, remotely and in real time, any device designed with the «knx standard» , a
communication protocol developed for the control and automation of houses and buildings.
Within the knx devices we find lighting, blinds, air conditioning systems, audiovisual
equipment (television, audio devices, DVD, etc.) or IP cameras .
Other examples of Apps for smart homes are Philips Hue (to control household appliances of
this brand and home lighting from the iPhone or iPad), Indigo Touch , Nexho (one of the
first Apps for home automation) or Tahoma Home Control by Somfy (which allows the
automatic programming of elements with Somfy home automation technology such as garage
doors, blinds, etc.).
Regarding the newest Apps for domotic homes , we highlight Home Connect, one of the most
advanced and intuitive. Home Connect can be used by different brands , although it is
currently used by household appliance manufacturers Bosch and Siemens , from the BSH
group. Integrated with the latest generation appliances, the App allows you to see the
refrigerator to know what to add to your shopping basket , preheat the oven so that it is
ready when you get home or, even, receive recipe ideas with the ingredients of your fridge
. You can also choose the time to turn on your washing machine or select the wash program
and the amount of detergent / softener for your laundry.
Another of the most interesting applications for the home is Loxone, a Smart Home
adaptable to all types of homes . Loxone makes smart building management easy, has a clear
interface, and features simple functions. Thus, from your smartphone you can control the
raising / lowering of blinds, awnings or curtains ; know the temperature of each room in
the house; activate or deactivate the alarm ; record from the video intercom to see who is
knocking at the door; make tracking the irrigation system or pool filters ; and facilitate
automatic ventilation of the home thanks to the air conditioning system and the opening of
In short, Loxone is a flexible and scalable App that minimizes the human factor and is at
the forefront of Apps for the home.
Home apps to manage your finances ... and help you save money
Saving is one of the most common concerns in the day-to-day life of families. Therefore,
having one of these applications to keep the household accounts can be of great help.
Of all the finance apps, the most popular is Fintonic . This App can replace your
bank's application and allows you to integrate several accounts to control expenses ,
income or transfers through weekly or monthly summaries. With Fintonic you can also
organize your expenses by categories to know where you spend your money at a glance.
Another of the alternatives to control your finances in Monefy . The App is very
intuitive: you just have to press the add button or the icons on the screen, choose the
type of expense you have made (leisure, restaurants, gasoline, clothing…) and mark the
amount you have spent. The information appears in graphs, so you can quickly identify
where you spend more or less.
If what you want is to take a more exhaustive control of your finances or analyze the
evolution of your savings and your economy, the App best valued by the experts is Mint.
With Mint you will have access to your bank accounts and you will be able to see where you
spend your money. In addition, you can make an approximate monthly budget according to
your income, your expenses in recent months and your savings intentions.
Spendee works in a similar vein. This application is not linked to any bank account but it
can be of great help to organize your household finances. How? You can create a shared
portfolio to manage expenses with another person, for example your partner, to know in
what you should invest more savings efforts.
A last App to manage housing expenses is Wibeee Home , designed to measure the electrical
consumption of each appliance or technological device : the application calculates the
instantaneous consumption and the approximate stand-by consumption , adjusts it to the
contracted power and you helps to select the rate of your company that best suits you
according to your needs and consumption habits .
Home cleaning applications
Finally, and if what you are looking for are applications to manage household tasks in a
more equitable and practical way, we recommend that you take a look at these applications
for cleaning your house.
One of the most useful applications for the home is Our Home , with which you can organize
cleaning tasks , manage the shopping list and communicate with your family using common
elements of video games. The App is free, it is available on Google Play and thanks to it
all members of the family will know what their task is each day.
ChoreMonster works in a very similar vein. In this case, the objective is to encourage the
youngest members of the household to fulfill their obligations, which is why the App is
more visually attractive and has a fun reward system .
Other interesting Apps for families or for people who share a flat are Chorma or Chores
App. The first has the great advantage that all members of the group must synchronize
their devices, so everyone will see in real time what tasks are pending (and who must do
them) and which ones have already been done. Chores App, meanwhile, allows you to organize
pending household tasks according to their priority, avoiding creating inefficient
patterns when cleaning and tidying up the house .
