I'm not sure about that. There is another word, "elettronico," for electronic. My dictionaries (not the last word) don't accept "electronic" for "elettrico."
I think I agree with smeans2. My toaster is electric, but it is not electronic. I have no technical expertise, but I believe that electronic means more than simply being powered by electricity. Also, while there are lots of different words that may be accepted here as translations, the most natural and idiomatic one, I think, is 'Do you have electrical appliances at home?' If, for example, you were to ask, "Do you have electric devices in the house?", the other person could probably understand what you were getting at, but they would likely assume that English was not your first language. This is just meant to help all those clever people out there whose native tongue is something other than English who are still able to learn Italian via English. I salute you.:)
