In this weeks blog I wanted to get all techy! I am one of those people that are constantly looking for cool gadgets and things that simply, make my life easier. So here is my top 10 list of gadgets for your home.
1: iRobot Roomba
These robot vacuums are a great addition to your home, with the ability to schedule cleaning times for example while your at work. I find my iRobot is actually very good at picking up dog and cat hair. It detects stairs, objects and comes with a “virtual wall” this can be placed in an area where you don’t want the vacuum to go and it will simply turn itself around and keep going. More info

3: Husqvarna AutoMower $3499.00
Yup, this is real! The Husqvarna AutoMower manages both mowing and charging automatically and is suitable for areas up to 2200 m² (0.54 acres).

Using the settings via the keypad and display, the mower can be adjusted to do a first-class job even on lawns with a complicated shape. Available in polar white colour, as an option. More info
