Close up the cottage with smart technology

The days are getting shorter and the weather’s growing colder: signs that the cottage season is officially over. Luckily, closing up for the year doesn’t have to be an arduous process.

Here are some tech tips to make the process simpler and more efficient.

1. If your cottage has Wi-Fi, consider adding security protection that lets you keep an eye on things while you’re away.

2. Instead of unplugging every device, use smart plugs to control turning things on and off. Bonus: you can start an air purifier while you’re on the road to freshen things up for your arrival.

3. Make cleaning easy with a cordless vacuum that has a telescopic wand to reach dusty shelves, awkward corners and converts into a handheld vacuum for quick and easy spot cleaning. Ensure you get one that works across different floor types, such as the LG CordZero stick vacuum.

4. No trash pickup? No problem. Make hauling out garbage easier – and less messy – with an electronic composter.

With smart technology making cottage life easier than ever, you’ll have more time to grab a few chapters (or zzz’s) down on the dock before the big drive home.
