Haven’t you ever wished that you had a little more control over your home appliances? How about having a way to start up your vehicle whilst you are still eating your breakfast? Connected homes are now something that is becoming more common than ever before, and they really offer some cool features. Something as awesome as being able to get your morning cup of coffee before you even crawl away from your cosy bed is now available to the likes of you and me. So here are a trio of iOS Smartphone Apps that can offer a little slice of technology heaven for those of us who yearn for a bit more control in our lives – Enjoy!

Viper SmartStart – Free

This App will run on your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad and it will require iOS 4.3 or later for smooth running. Have you ever wished for another ten minutes in bed and looked out to see that your poor car is frozen solid? It can take at least 15 minutes of ice scraping to get the darn windscreen usable for our daily commute. Well, Viper SmartStart has the solution that will give you those extra precious moments on the cold mornings we hate so much. Once you’ve downloaded and set up your Viper SmartStart module in your vehicle, you can start the engine from almost anywhere you happen to be. You can also locate your car, arm and disarm the alarm and get a neat text notification when some scumbag messes with your ride. We love this application and are equally impressed that it can also be tweaked to control your entire home security system.

TopBrewer – Free

So how about an innovative device that allows you to pre-order a cup of delicious Joe when you’re not even in the same room, or building! Once you’ve invested in the TopBrewer device and downloaded this cool App, you’ll be looking forward to some real caffeine-centric fun. You get some real control over the finished article and can add/decrease cream and sugar with the touch of your screen. The appliance itself can be fitted into any table top and really looks the business. You can also order some of the best coffee beans with this App and you don’t even have to leave your home. All coffee lovers should check out the link and we guarantee that you’ll be glad that you did.

Automated Yet?
