A $6,400 toilet with motion-activated seat. An $11,000 smart bed that automatically adjusts to your sleep positions and habits. These are just a few of the appliances that make up the modern “home of 2016,” at least according to the site Futurism, which says we are “well on our way” to the kinds of futuristic, technologically advanced households imagined in years past.
The site put together a list of the smartest home gadgets in each room. The total cost of outfitting your (currently not-so-smart) house with all of these products? At least $99,176 — though it should be noted this includes the price of a Tesla Model S TSLA, -0.82% ($69,900) in the garage.
The Front Door
Traditional knocking is so 2015. Futurism’s recommended rig to make sure your front door is not only edgy but also highly secure, will cost you $598. Start with a $149 “smart lock” that can be unlocked with a secret knock the owner has chosen and recorded. Next step: the $449 Arlo wire-free security system, made up of several weatherproof HD cameras that can stream to your smartphone and send notifications when motion is detected.
The Living Room
You’ll definitely want to make sure the lighting in your living room is just right, so it’s handy that in 2016 you can buy a smart lighting setup, where you can dictate settings like “entertaining friends lighting” from your smartphone.
Now that the lighting is just right in your living room, you want to make sure it’s right on your toilet seat. The $6,400 Kohler Numi Toilet has a motion-activated seat, and ambient lighting with programmable colors and built-in speakers that connect to your mobile device via Bluetooth.
Updating your bedroom for 2016 is going to be one of the biggest burns on your wallet. Futurism recommends you ditch your old bed for the $10,999 Craftmatic Model 2 Adjustable Bed, which has a “connected mattress” that tracks your sleep habits.
