Maintaining a home can be a difficult task for the modern working American family. Many of us are forced to work more than one job to earn money. It has stolen time that we would have spent with our families, doing household chores, or just taking care of ourselves.
Luckily we have technology on our side to help do the job for us. Money isn’t always the problem, but not having time to do weekend chores is common. As technology advances for automated systems, we have more and more robots doing the work for us.
You will see some examples in the next few paragraphs. This invention makes it easy to clean and keep your home looking without spending hours doing it yourself!
Roomba Vacuum Cleaner
This is an automatic vacuum cleaner made by iRobot company, one of the most popular brands of automatic vacuum cleaners. They are self-guided and the size of a Frisbee. Once you turn them on, they’ll maneuver around the corners from room to room sucking up dirt, pet dander, and everything else a vacuum would do. Costs range from $300 to $700 depending on some of the additional features offered. One is a wireless command center to control the vacuum from any location in your home.
This gadget is a huge time saver, as it doesn’t need to be monitored and will do the best job it can. This has a one-time cost besides maintaining and cleaning it, and it can be a lot cheaper than hiring a maid who you have to pay for regularly.
Everyone likes pets. Unfortunately, many of us choose not to accept them because we are too busy to care for them and are afraid they will be ignored. Cats are relatively independent pets to own. They don’t need a lot of attention and can take care of themselves. One of the biggest advantages is not having to walk them two or three times a day to let them go to the bathroom.
The downside is a smelly litter box that needs to be cleaned frequently to avoid odors. The Litter Maid solves this problem with its automatic cleaning feature. It uses easy clumping litter and a self-serving mechanism to keep the litter fresh for the cat to use.
Robot Cutting Machine
To step it up in the world of automated gadgets, you have the Robot Mower. The Robo Mower runs on a lithium-ion battery and is fully automatic once the initial setup is complete. This is a self-contained lawn mower that can mow up to four different areas on your property by itself. These work as well as push mowers that can adjust the height of the blade, cut at different rates, and incorporate safety features to prevent injury to the user and bystanders.
Mowing your lawn can be a very time consuming activity depending on the size of your property. Even those with only a small yard can benefit from this device. It is fairly low maintenance and will save you the cost of running your gas operated lawn mower, and the time it takes to maintain it.
Robots have taken over doing the work we usually do. Every day new inventions will come to replace people. Bucking this trend will only make you work harder and eventually your job will be taken over by the machines. Adopting this gadget can help save you time and money.
