Can smart tech really save you time, money and energy? Make life easier? We gave three families the latest home tech, from robot vacuum cleaners to smart meters, and asked those very questions. Welcome to Smart Street.
Adrian, Gabrielle and their three kids lead a hectic family life. But living with smart tech has made life much easier (and efficient!). From vacuuming the house while dropping the kids to school to doing the washing remotely, see how a house full of gadgets has made life far less chaotic.
The kids love it and, for Adrian, that means help with the chores.
