It seems like there’s nothing you can’t do with smart home devices now. Everything from lights to speakers to cooking utensils, there seems to be a smart solution for everything. These handy devices operate by voice command, or sometimes the push of a button. Either way, they’re extremely easy to use and heaps of fun.
If you’re keen on making your home that little bit smarter, here are some of the coolest smart home devices on the market in 2020.
Starting with the big players, Amazon Echo does everything you want and more. Not only does it work as a speaker, but you can use the Echo as a hub for all your other smart home devices. Using Amazon Alexa technology, you can ask it about the weather, the news, and easily control your other household gadgets.
Google Home is another Bluetooth speaker packed with plenty of other features. In reality, it’s quite similar to the Amazon Echo but just based on the Google Assistant platform. Control your smart devices, play music, and use it as a general smart home assistant.
While the two big smart home assistants listed above work as great quality speakers, they don’t really hold a candle to the ultra-impressive Sonos One. It works with both Google and Amazon devices and delivers a far superior sound quality. Link it with other Sonos speakers throughout the home, and control it all by voice!
Arlo Ultra Security
If you want a smart security system with all the bells and whistles, it’s hard to go past the Arlo Ultra. It streams and records video in true 4K, or ultra-high definition. It does everything you want such as motion tracking, auto-zoom and even night vision.
August Wi-Fi Smart Lock
Tired of losing keys? The solution is smart locks! One of the best around is the August Wi-Fi Smart Lock. One of the first with embedded Wi-Fi, it also works comfortably with Google, Apple, Amazon and other third-party smart assistants. Easy!
Yeelight Smart LED Bulb
Let’s be honest, there’s something super-cool and sophisticated about controlling your lights by voice command. The Yeelight steps it up a notch by having 16 million colours, a dimming function and easy pairing with all major smart home assistant technology.
iRobot Roomba s9+
There aren’t many people around who love vacuuming, which is why smart vacuums became popular very quickly. While early models had plenty of flaws, the Roomba s9+ has a new shape for getting hard-to-reach spaces, four times the suction power of the previous model, and both sensor and camera navigation. Never lift a finger to vacuum again!
There are so many more smart devices out there, including fitness gear, cooking utensils, beds, mowers, outdoor sprinklers – if you can name it, they probably make it. Check them out today and start making your home smarter!
