Get Smart About Back-to-School Time With Smart Technology

by Waverly Wilde

Robots can’t do your homework -- but here’s how they can help!

Watch Smart

Notifications where you need them, when you need them. Health and sleep tracking. Reminders to get up and move around in the middle of study sessions. You are going to be pretty brain dead at certain points of your college career, so having a second little brain tied to your wrist is a great idea. Scratch that -- it’s a smart idea.

Book Smart

No matter if you like taking traditional, hand-written notes, or if you would rather have digital copies of everything you are pretending to learn in Orgo, a smart notebook has you covered. Welcome to 2019-level technology, kids.

It’s Wake Up O’Clock

There’s nothing worse than the fear of missing your alarm going off when you’ve been up into the twilight hours studying. You need what little sleep you are able to get, and anything that can help with that will go a long way for your college experience. 

Both Google Home and Amazon Alexa are great smart alarms -- and can easily be set up to a specific routine or to remind you to bring your book bag when you wake up every morning.


Something Streaming

No matter how badly you want to, you probably won’t have room to take all your Disney VHS tapes to college with you -- and you won’t have anything to play them on even if you do. College isn’t all hitting the books, so make sure you have some type of smart streaming device for much needed Netflix breaks.

Smart Speakers

Whether you are living in a dorm or off-campus, you probably won’t have enough room to really set up a proper stereo system -- and if you do, you won’t be able to play it too loud without keeping the whole hall up anyways. Silly RAs … 

Enter a portable, Bluetooth, smart speaker. Bose or Sonos are both great choices and give you plenty of opportunities to play music in your room or out on the quad. 


No matter what you are majoring in this fall, take a smart approach to studying and hitting the books! And if you are looking for more advanced smart tech, or really need help with integrating smart tech into your apartment, give us a call!
