This way we maintain all the aesthetics of the mechanism, it is somewhat more complex to install since most of these adapters have a neutral connection, but do not worry because there are countless tutorials online
If you are overwhelmed with the above options and you are not technically qualified to install it, you can resort to switchbot , home automation which is a small device that we can attach to any push button / switch and make it smart without having to modify the electrical installation, since it works with batteries and simulates the pulsation that we would give with the finger. This is not only valid for pushbuttons / switches but for any type of device that has a button and it occurs to us to automate.
I do not recommend this option, but those who have more difficulties with DIY or do not dare with the above proposed, can help you get out of trouble. It consists of leaving the switch always on and blocking it with a toothpick or plastic so that they do not turn off and then the lamp or bulb that turns on this switch install a smart bulb with which it will always be powered and the lights will be controlled from our voice assistant, sensors or mobile devices.
Without a doubt, smart plugs are the Swiss army knife of a Smart home automation, since with them we can turn a multitude of home devices into smart ones, lamps, heaters, fans, etc., it all depends on the imagination you throw at it, that's why it is a a very good resource that we should always have on hand, to automate what we see fit for our health.
Remote controls are one of the elements that have the most common contact like switches, an easy way to eliminate them is the intelligent infrared emitters and give commands by voice through our virtual assistants home automation. Its installation is super simple, since it is only to plug it in a place that has a vision within reach of what we want to manipulate (television, receiver, air conditioning, etc.).Finally, comment that most televisions of 2020 or the end of 2019, Samsung, LG or Sony are compatible with voice assistants.
The idea is when we come from the street we don't have to take out keys or remote controls, we can order it by voice to our mobile or smart watch and thus not touch anything. We can also do it by programming the geo location on our mobile phone and when we get closer it opens automatically and after a security time it closes us.
I share Nuki for its easy and fast, without the need to drill or use screws, and it can be completely removed without leaving any residue.It also makes it super interesting since it is compatible with all commented voice assistants. The question is to reduce the use of the mobile phone as much as possible, especially with calls, since this is where we will avoid taking the phone to our face as many times as possible.Similarly, both Google home automation and Amazon Alexa allow you to make calls to other users of these platforms.In the case of the Apple Homepod, it has the hands-free function with your iPhone, freely choosing who you can call just like any hands-free.
Robotic vacuum cleaners and floor cleaners
The idea is to automate daily cleaning, since there will be days that we cannot or others that we do not find ourselves in the mood. Also as a way of ordering by voice those areas in which we believe they have been exposed to viruses at some point.Clarify that these types of robots will have to add disinfectant products in their tanks for such effectiveness.
Air purifiers (cleaning our air)
Air purifiers have powerful, highly effective HEPA filters that are crucial to keeping the air clean. For example, the Mi Air Purifier 2H has HEPA filters divided into 3 layers, achieving a more effective filtration. The first layer filters out large particles, as well as hair and dust. The second layer is an H13 grade HEPA filter that traps particles 0.3 μm in diameter or larger, including PM 2.5, smoke particles, pet dander, pollen and even pathogenic bacteria . Lastly, the third layer is made of High quality activated carbon to absorb formaldehyde and other harmful chemicals and even eliminate odor.
