5 Interesting Smart Gadgets You’ll Enjoy Having at Home

by Jeff M. Writer

Smart devices are all the rage nowadays, with everything from cars and refrigerators to alarms being designed to have internet connectivity or other advanced features. Sifting through all the new products that have the “smart” label attached to them can be daunting, especially because they usually come with new capabilities that are difficult to compare to the models you’re already used to.

So, for someone who is looking to upgrade your home and make things more high-tech and convenient by using smart gadgets, here are a few that you should definitely consider getting:

1. Surveillance Cameras

Security is crucial in any home, and smart cameras are the latest and greatest way to ensure that your house is secure, to ensure that your lives and properties are not in any danger.

There are myriad features that manufacturers have made into their products, and it’s important that you conduct extensive research to ascertain the ones you’ll need and the relative quality of those features across the models you’re considering. Generally, look out for cameras that have high video quality, motion and sound detection, rechargeable batteries, geofencing and expansive connectivity options.

2. Smart Home Hub

This is the most important gadget you need to properly automate your home and turn it into a truly smart one. It will be the central gadget that communicates with all the others in your home. There are quite a few options on the market, from the Echo family of hubs produced by Amazon to the Google Home models.

Be sure that the model you’re buying supports voice control so you’ll be able to control specific gadgets, such as a smart scale even, simply by speaking simple commands aloud.

3. Smart Locks and Doorbells

You might have some sentimental attachment to the doorbells of old and their fancy ring sounds, but it really is time to move on from those. Many smart doorbells will make it possible for you to see whoever is knocking on your door in full HD detail, and you can configure them to upload footage to the cloud automatically.

If you combine those features with a smart lock that you can remotely control, it’d mean that you’ve upgraded your home security significantly and gained more control over who gets into your home, regardless of whether you’re around or not.

4. Thermostat

You’ve probably heard of the Nest thermostat, but there are plenty of options in the market beside that. They give you unprecedented control over the temperature in your home, enabling you to adjust the environment in different areas to cater for specific needs.

Here, it’s crucial that you make sure the heating and cooling devices you buy are compatible with the thermostat you have, so you’ll be able to maximize its functionality.

5.  Cleaning Robots

Cleaning robots are becoming more common now, and you should definitely get one if you’d like to save the time you spend cleaning. Prices have reduced, meaning that you won’t have to shell out several hundreds of dollars anymore.

App navigation is a must, but look out for other features like laser navigation, custom maps, mopping ability and integration options.
