Almost half (46%) of the people quizzed admitted this was top of their wish-list, followed closely by a smart hoover, which received 40% of the vote.
A smart fridge - which can recommend recipes based upon its contents - follows in third place with 37%. Kitchen appliances that connect to a smart assistant are in next place (34%), followed by a laundry-folding robot, which received an impressive 32% of the votes.
Bringing up the rear of lust-haves is the smart kettle, which can be controlled by a mobile device (30%), which sits in joint place with smart shelving - shelves that automatically reorder items as they run out, obviously.
Overall, two-fifths of the people quizzed said they believe smart technology has improved their 'standard of living', with 'connected' living environments offering users more control over their homes than ever before.
Shaun Hallums, a spokesperson from RecycleZone.org.uk, said of the findings: "We are in the era of instant gratification - where people want to utilise technology that makes different aspects of their lives easier and more efficient. Companies have quickly realised this and created a multitude of devices and applications to cater to this apparent need. Now with a plethora of innovations available on the mass market, many of them have proved to be hugely popular and valuable. As existing as well as new technology advances and develops, consumers' expectations will undoubtedly grow. This research highlights the new wave of smart technology which is exciting Brits the most - certainly, enough to want to own and use them in their living environment".
