Step into 2019 with these electronic devices, found on Amazon!

Let's face it -- With every year, we are heading further and further down a path where technology dominates everything we do. With the addition of smartphones, tablets, cooking devices, personal assistants, and much more, life today is very different from what it was even 20 years ago!

No, the robots aren't taking over (maybe just Alexa), but you have to admit that they are pretty useful!  Check out these five useful electronic devices that will help you upgrade your home with the times.

Available to Prime Members only! The Dash Buttons are available on Amazon for just $5 each and are a simpler way of ordering those things you need often. You get $5 off your first order, so the buttons are practically free! My boyfriend and I use these dash buttons to order toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, etc. They are simple to use and make ordering a breeze. Just press the button, and wait for it to turn green -- then bam, you have your order in two days! Find them here.

Amazon Alexa

Don't think wiretap device (which she is not); think helpful assistant! Alexa has so many functions that will upgrade your life and your laziness. You can hook her up to your TV (to turn it on and off), your lights, alarm system, and so much more -- seriously, you can ask her to perform any of these functions! She's also extremely useful by showing you the front door, being an alarm clock, timer, reminder, and communicator (use her like a walkie-talkie). My favorite function of all is using her to add things to my shopping list (only available for iPhone). Alexa has several different devices that are very useful for your home -- be sure to check them out to see which one is right for you (find them here). Prices range, depending on the device, from $24.99 to $229.99. 

Instant Pot

**WARNING** Please be careful when releasing the steam!!!

Another cooking device? Yes, another one that is quite amazing. Instant pots are changing the meal prepping (or family meals) game. Throw everything into the pot, let it simmer for 30 minutes to an hour, and you're done! You can make all kinds of cool things in here like, soups, yogurt, flan, WINE, etc -- how awesome is that? You can find all three sizes (6, 8, 10) here between the prices of $67.00 and $99.95.

If you happen to spill something, just take it out of the docking station, clean up your mess, and put it back. It's very versatile, coming with five different heads, to help you clean up any situation or any place. The carpet attachment swivels around for you to get those tricky corners. It is worth every penny, and you will have no regrets purchasing it. You can find it here for $240.50.

August AUG-SL-CON-S03 Silver Smart Lock Pro

I never thought I would need one of these until my boyfriend randomly installed one on our front door. The deadbolt is compatible with your Bluetooth so it will unlock the front door as you are pulling into the driveway. You don't have to worry about having full hands and juggling them for your keys; the August Smartlock has got your back! It makes some soothing chiming sounds so you can be extra sure when the door is unlocked or locked. When leaving the home, just turn it to the left, and voila, you are good to leave! You can find it here for $225.
