Kenya is among the top three leading innovation hubs in sub-Saharan Africa, according to the 2019 Global Innovation Index report by the World Intellectual Property Organisation. Kenyans are quick to adopt new technologies, whether it is in their businesses or at home. If you have a young family, you should always be on the lookout for the latest and greatest tech products that you can add to your home to improve your quality of life and make sure you’re up-to-date with trending innovations. Luckily, there are many cool gadgets available in Kenya that you can add to your home to make life easier, more fun, and more comfortable — without breaking the bank.

Smart home voice assistant

Although smart home technology is still fairly new in Kenya, smart home speakers are slowly making their way into Kenyan homes, especially in the urban regions. A smart home speaker like the Amazon Echo can help your family stay organised better than ever before. Not only is it fun when you are using it to control your entertainment, but it also offers you convenience as you can use it to control other connected devices like smart lighting, thermostats, and more. You can also ask it as many questions as you like, making it a great educational tool for your kids.

High-tech cleaning devices

Cleaning is one of those chores that everyone hates but has to do regularly. It gets even worse if you have young kids who don’t care how much dirt they drag all around your home. Luckily, you can now keep your home clean effortlessly with the help of various high-tech cleaning devices.

If you are tired of hand washing your kids’ clothes, you can invest in a washing machine that does the job in seconds. If you have a carpet, you know how hard it can be trying to keep it clean with kids running all over it and spilling  things on it every now and then. But, by investing in a carpet cleaner, you can clean your carpet easily maintaining its look and getting rid of dirt and allergens that could cause health problems for your family. A dishwashing machine can also save you countless hours spent washing your family’s dishes.

Fitness trackers

One of the most important roles for you as a parent is to monitor your children’s health and to do everything in your power to keep them healthy. Wearable fitness trackers are excellent tools to help you do just that. Fitness trackers are easy to use and can benefit every member of the family, young and old. Most reputable fitness trackers from companies like Fitbit or Garmin can monitor your steps, sleep patterns, and even your heart rate. They typically come with a companion app where you can monitor your kids’ activity levels and other key health information. For the more competitive families, you can create fitness goals and use fitness trackers to see who comes first.

When it comes to technology adoption, Kenyans don’t like to be left behind. If you look hard enough, you can find various tech tools to serve various purposes in your home that make life simpler, more comfortable, and more enjoyable for your family.
