We’ve entered the smart age, there’s no denying it. With technology impacting every aspect of our lives, why should our homes remain untouched? It’s time you too converted your living place into a smart automated home as well.
There are tons of smart devices available in the market which make your life easier and smarter, like finding your missing keys, instructing you in a human voice in case of smoke or fire in your home, automatically track your cats’ health and feeding habits, irrigate your yard based on weather reports, etc.
Here are the list of best Smart Home Gadgets to Convert Your Home into Smart.
SkyBell Wi-Fi Video Doorbell
Sky-Bell is the smart video doorbell that lets you answer the door from your smartphone. SkyBell features a video camera, exclusive motion sensor, microphone and a speaker that allows you to see, hear and speak to your visitor from an IOS or Android mobile device from anywhere in the world. SkyBell uses an inbuilt motion sensor and sends an alert even if the visitor doesn’t press the button. You can use this device to set multiple users and smartphones can receive alerts.
With more than 7,000 third-party integrations, Alexa is undoubtedly one of the most comprehensive smart home ecosystems available today. While you have likely heard of using Alexa in Eco-speaker form (“Alexa, what’s the weather today?”), you might not know that Alexa is now built into plenty of other smart products, including thermostats (i.e. Ecobee4) and TVs (i.e. Fire TV). Alexa makes every aspect of your smart home easy to access and control. You can use Alexa to speak to apps like Spotify just as easily as you can ask her to turn off the lights.
The Philips Hue bulbs enable you to control both intensity of light — dimming or brightening on-command — and the color of your lights. You can create special color-coordinated moods (i.e. choose the “energize” theme on your app for a specific room you’re in, or sync it with your music). You can also set color-coordinated alarms, ensuring you wake up every morning to a bright pink bedroom. These bulbs work with most smart home systems, making them arguably the most flexible option. If you don’t want color, you can also purchase Philips Hue White.
The smart thermostat. With its built-in Amazon Alexa speaker, Ecobee really is a cut above other popular touch-screen models. Just ask it to adjust the temperature—no fiddling with your smart home.
The smart trash can. Not only does the Bruno Smartcan have hand sensors so you can open it without touching the lid, it also has a suction near the floor so you can sweep things right in. Not your thing? Instead go for Ecovacs Deebot. You can easily spend close to $1,000 on a smart robotic vacuum, this gadget comes in much cheaper. It’s both voice-activated (with Alexa or Google) and—even better—controllable via the app, so you can clean your house before you head home.
