Are you at the point where your life needs an infusion of high-tech wonder to keep moving along? If so, you’ve probably considered a few of the common choices like the latest apps, top-grade sound systems, an even bigger video screen for the entertainment center, or an e-bike. Those are all great choices, and are a perfect place to begin.
But what if you already have them and are looking to enter a phase II of tech acquisition for 2021? Then, you’re in luck, because there are all sorts of amazing products that have the potential to change your life for the better. Here’s a quick rundown of the best of the best. But first, a smart way to pay for it all.
Paying For the Tech You Want
It’s frustrating to make a tech wish list before checking to see what you can and can’t afford to purchase. So, get the most important thing, the money question, out of the way first. That means checking out all your resources. If you’re short in the savings department, you can always finance the technology you need by taking out a personal loan from a private lender. Right now, rates are competitive, terms are flexible, and repayment periods can be set to suit your income.
Smart Solar Systems
Solar roof panels have come a long, long way in the past five years. Today’s products are less costly, deliver more energy per square foot, weigh less, and look great. Companies who sell rooftop solar systems are extremely competitive, which is good for buyers who want the most modern, smart panels on the market. Some of the latest solar setups pay for themselves in less than five years.
New-Gen Hybrid Cars
Exactly 10 years ago, only one manufacturer, GM, sold a plug-in, hybrid-electric vehicle. In 2021, more than a dozen automakers sell PHEVs, cars that have both an electric and gasoline fuel source, and that you plug-in to a standard outlet for recharging. The best news of all is that prices for new PHEVs have finally come down to reality, and are not much higher than the cost of traditional, gas-powered vehicles at most dealerships.
Are you due for a laptop upgrade? If so, your timing is perfect. Post-pandemic prices are way down due to a market glut. But the best news is that several of the largest manufacturers have introduced all sorts of enhancements to memory capacity, computing speed, and wireless capabilities. For well under $1,000, you can add a top-notch laptop to your device arsenal.
Bluetooth Access Control
Want the newest, hottest security system for your home or office? You won’t have to break the bank to pay for an all-entry Bluetooth access control system. These clever devices include a small reader device mounted in or on each doorway. To gain entry, you use a smartphone to send a private key to the lock and open it. They’re fast, convenient, and virtually impossible to hack. Offices are installing them by the droves, and the units are now making inroads with the residential market.
