Mobile: home applications

Cell phones have long since stopped being just phones. Although there are still people who resist technological advances, they are here to stay, and even more so in the field of communications. With the appearance of tablets and smartphones, many applications have been developed with the firm purpose of making our lives more comfortable. The home is no stranger to the trend, and mobile phones have abandoned the exclusivity of offices to become essential tools in our homes too.

Let's look at some of the areas in which different applications can make it more comfortable for us to go home:Administration. In recent times, families are forced to adjust the budget of the shopping basket as much as possible, as well as the amounts destined to face possible additional expenses. Both Android (Min

t) and iOS (Spende

e) have applications with a very simple interface to manage money and control expenses and income.Power supply. What we have in the fridge, when the products we have bought expire, how to distribute the food throughout the week to have a healthy diet... Countless mobile applications can help us to manage and control the family's food, as well as to draw up the shopping list.

For the latter is very useful myShopi, a very intuitive and simple application in which you just have to press the icons that represent the products we need. In addition, it has memory of the previous lists so that we can check the content of previous purchases.Household tasks. Any.do is very useful for organizing the distribution of household tasks in shared flats and large families. With it, all the members of the family nucleus will know which jobs correspond to them every day, week or month. In addition, the distribution of the agenda can be shared with the rest of the mobiles in the house to achieve a more efficient management and avoid forgetting.Security. The iZon and Presence applications are two of the most widely used in the field of home security, an economical alternative to sophisticated (and expensiv

e) video surveillance systems.

They work through the phone's video camera and send alerts to the mobile phone when they detect movement.Air conditioning. Airzone's Webserver is responsible for optimizing air conditioning installations by making it possible to store the usual temperatures at different times of the day and, even better, to program the air conditioning remotely. This helps to save money, since you don't need to keep the air conditioning (or heatin

g) running all day to find a pleasant temperature when you return home; you just need to set the power on at the right time, a few minutes (or an hour) before you return. People who own an air-conditioned home in Madrid can find out more about the functions of this system through the website airecondicionadomadrid.es.
