Does the idea of a smart gadget get you excited? If so, then you’re definitely a techie at heart. And if you’re a techie at heart, you should probably be a techie at home too.
The home smart gadget market has been booming for quite some time now, but these days, it seems like companies are outdoing themselves.
In this post, we’re going to cover ten unique smart gadgets for your home – unlike anything you’ve ever seen before (probably).
1. Pod Smart Bed
The Pod Smart Bed is one of the most unique items on this list because, well, it’s a smart bed. We all could use a little help getting shuteye, and that’s exactly what this bed is designed to do.
Not only does it keep the mattress at just the right temperature as you sleep, but it can also gradually increase the temp when it’s time to wake up, so you don’t have to bother with an annoying alarm clock.
And, naturally, there’s an app that goes with this intelligent bed. With the app (and a $5/mo. subscription, you can monitor your sleep patterns as detected by the mattress’s sensors. Pretty cool, huh?
2. Ikea Smart Blinds
The launch of these smart blinds has been delayed a few times, but they’re finally ready to grace your windows. Ikea’s smart blinds connect with Google Home, Amazon’s Alexa, and Ikea’s own smart home system, so you can easily control your blinds as part of the rest of your home management system.
With the sound of your voice, you can raise or lower these blinds – without getting up from the couch. And you can also set them to raise and lower at certain times of day, which is helpful for deterring criminals who might be casing your neighborhood.
3. Dyson 360 Eye
This smart vacuum is a lot like other beloved robo-vacs, but it has an important smart upgrade. Instead of bouncing from obstacle to obstacle, this vacuum relies on a 360-view camera to navigate your room. You can even see how productive this vacuum was by checking its progress on your mobile app.
The only thing the Dyson 360 Eye can’t do is stairs. But with the camera system, you can bet it’s a master at avoiding them.
4. Smart Wine Storage
With LG’s Signature Kitchen Suite, you won’t have to worry about your wines being stored at the wrong temperature (if that’s something you’ve ever worried about).
The Kitchen Suite manages and maintains the proper temperature for your wines and features an anti-vibration technology to keep that wine from getting jostled in the fridge.
And when you’re looking to enjoy a bottle, you can also get food pairings from this incredibly smart wine refrigerator.
5. Intelligent Grill Thermometer
Don’t you hate how you always have to check the temperature of your steak on the grill or roast in the oven? Thermometers are invaluable, but there’s still the process of opening the grill or oven door and checking again and again. You become a slave to your meal.
Enter the iGrill Smart Grill Thermometer. With this device, you can set an alarm via a smartphone app that will alert you when the food is ready.
6. Auto Water Valve Control
This one falls under the category of things you never knew you needed but now can’t live without. This is actually a relatively simple device that connects to your main water valve and detects any water leaks. If there are leaks, the device will instantly shut off the water at the main valve, so you can prevent any water damage.
The best part about this smart device is that it’s kind of a set-it-and-forget-it type of thing.
7. Smart Door Control
Most smart door locks allow you to lock your doors while you’re away or monitor whether the doors remain locked. But what stands out about this smart home device is that it allows you to communicate with the person at your door and open the door temporarily to let them in. Then when they’re done, lock the door again.
8. Indoor Smart Camera
The smart home camera is an important part of the best home security systems, but this one takes the concept to the next level. The Netamo indoor camera uses facial recognition to detect whether the person in your home might be an intruder.
9. Orro Smart Switch
The Orro smart switch is designed to get to know your patterns and how you use light within your home. It can also be set to automatically dim as it gets later in the night. You can also have the lights adjust as people enter an exit each room.
Hook up the Orro smart switch to your Amazon Alexa to manage your smart home system from one voice-activated system. It’s all designed to work together.
10. August Smart Lock Pro+
In 2109 and beyond, smart home security systems are where it’s at. These aren’t the systems of the future; they’re very much security of the now. And smart locks are an important part of any smart home system.
But there’s something especially cool about this smart lock. In fact, it’s so smart that it knows who to let in and who to keep out. It’s perfect for kids who have to come home while their parents are still at work. And it’s ideal for someone who rents out their home, so they don’t have to be there to hand over keys.
It’s akin to other smart locks in that you can use a mobile app to control who can gain access to your home manually.
So, what about you? Have you started making your home into a smart home yet? And if so, which of these devices is going to be next on the list?
You always have the option of getting all of the devices on the list and turning your home into a completely automated and ultra-convenient connected environment. Control it from the comfort of your couch or from your office chair at work.
