Tech-Savvy Home Maintenance

We are super excited that we live in an age where apps exist to make our lives easier! Tech developers are on the ball with developing new and improved ways of maintaining your home.

Probably one of the coolest new apps for your home is a new app that unlocks your door, for those of us who are prone to misplacing keys but always have a smart phone hand. writes that the Schlage Sense system, designed for Apple HomeKit technology, can do just that.

The Handy Man app, according to, is the next big thing in calculating home renovations, helping you decipher the cost of your remodel job by allowing you to enter room measurements, pick materials – it will even do the numbers and create a shopping list for you.

The days of going to your local hardware stores to thumb through paint swatches are a thing of the past with the introduction of the Sherwin-Williams ColorSnap Visualizer, which allows you to upload a photo of the color you’re looking and gives you the Sherwin-Williams color you’re looking for. You can also snap a picture of the room you want to repaint and the app will help you visualize different shades.
