Five devices that will make your home a smart home

Smart-home is still a fledgling concept. You barely find a 100 percent smart-home, nonetheless, a growing number of startups out there are designing different devices for smart homes. Some of the best devices have been included here.


Frankly, Philips Hue is the other name for the smart light concept. The smart light, Philips Hue makes it easy to adjust the mood of a room. It will give you a peaceful experience. The light can be controlled no matter wherever you are.


Easiest introduction for Amazon Echo is it is technically a Bluetooth speaker. But you don’t buy it only to play music. It can work as a Siri or Google Now for your home. Amazon Eco is a digital assistant. It can tell you weather, browse, play music, set alarms or calendar events, adjust smart home devices and so forth.


August Smart Lock lets you remotely control a door lock. Keys have never been particularly complicated, but the Smart Lock looks good. To install this device is easy. If nothing else, having your door open and unlock for you without having to touch a thing is just neat.

If you pick up August connect accessory or use a compatible hub, you can also dictate the Smart Lock. It will allow certain people into the house, even when you’re not there. You’ll creep out the cable guy, sure, but if you can’t afford to stay home on the day of installation, this lets you let him in.


The NuBryte console lets you make your home smarter on your own terms. This touch-screen panel replaces your wall switch, and, using a small built-in camera, will automatically turn the lights on when you enter a room. It can also be used as a security camera, and you can link two or more consoles to create a whole-home network. NuBryte has your back in case you’re running late. You can send a message to your home’s console from your Smartphone so your family members know you’re on your way.


Building a smart home can be expensive, but in the long run, it can save you money. Take the Nest Learning Thermostat for example. Sure, it’s pricey, but it turns the heating down when there’s no-one home, and pushes you towards maintaining energy-saving temperatures.

It’s convenient and it’s largely automated, learning what temperatures you like and programming itself, but if you want to take control yourself a simple app gives you all the management tools you need.
