In the past several years, there’s been a lot of talk about “Smart Homes” and “The Internet of Things” but the reality of it seemed elusive. No more. It’s now safe to say that a genuine Smart Home is no longer a futuristic concept.
We are featuring a few Smart Home products here that can make your life easier, more efficient and better:
If you spend most of your day in the living room, kitchen, or dining room, why would you pay to heat or cool your home office or den? With a system of smart HVAC vents, you can specify different temperatures for different rooms, all from your laptop, tablet or smartphone. And since they are also sensitive to temperature, Keen Home vents can even self-adjust, sending heated or cooled air only to where it’s needed.
This is not your grandfather’s light bulb! This new responsive smart bulb from Stack Lighting automatically adjusts according to the amount of natural light there is available in a room at any given time. These bulbs can even sync with your alarm clock, slowly but surely brightening to help you wake up in the morning.
Do you feel guilty about leaving your pets at home? Petcube is a video-camera system that allows you to remotely tune in to see what your pets are doing. There’s also a built-in mic so you can talk to your furry friends. You can even enable a laser pointer to entertain them.
Smart Air Purifier
There is now an air purifier that can purify air according to standards set by such organizations as the World Health Organization. Controlled by a smartphone app, this Leaf purifier from Vigilant uses a woven filtration system to remove particles from the air. Sensors can also measure these particles, displaying the current state of air quality in your home on any mobile device.
