A Smarter 2017: Best home gadgets to make your life easier

With the advent of smart technology in everyday life as of late, it’s no surprise that corporations are coming up with the next gadget that can blow your mind and making your life a little more smooth sailing.

Need to keep tabs on your living quarters while you’re away on one of your many work trips? Smart home cams offer a sense of security (and some peace) to your mind via one tap of an app. Looking for a digital PA who can retrieve your flight info while answering random questions on a whim? Google Home is pretty much your work (and life) saviour.

Here are six smart gadgets to make 2017 that much simpler and efficient for everybody under one roof, from wifi thermostats to baby monitors:


1. Google Home, USD129, + Add To Wishlist: A lot similar to Amazon Echo, Google’s voice-activated speaker is pretty much like a home-tailored Siri to answer any questions you ask, play music from your playlist or even YouTube, set your alarm, and control your AC via smart devices among its many features. Its chic, unassuming design allows it to blend seamlessly to your home interior as well – so fret not about it sticking out like a sore thumb amidst your clean and stylish space.

2. Amazon Echo, USD179.99, + Add To Wishlist: Debuting two years ago, Amazon Echo’s latest feature is Alexa Voice Service to play music and provide information for you just by asking. Equipped with 7 microphones, Echo allows you to manage your life with Skills – you can order a pizza, get a ride from Uber, buy books for your Kindle, setup your thermostat at home all with its Alexa app. Plus with its speaker that fills any room with 360° immersive sound, this is one smart PA not to miss out on.

3. Tado Smart AC Control, USD199, + Add To Wishlist: Ever heard of a smart thermostat? German-based brand Tado enables you to control your air conditioner from anywhere at anytime with its app. You can cool your home down just in time before you get back, and it also saves up to 40% on your AC costs. If you’re worried about compatibility issues, Tado works with remote-controlled ACs via infrared, and is compatible with most AC brands out there including Daikin, LG, Panasonic, Samsung and more.

4. ecobee3 Smarter Wi-Fi Thermostat, USD185.83, + Add To Wishlist: If you already have the Amazon Echo and want to adjust temperatures in each specific room in your house, ecobee3 works with room sensors just so each room’s temperature can be tailored accordingly. Its feature detects temperature and occupancy, deprioritizing unoccupied rooms to save energy and electricity in the long run.

5. Piper nv Smart Home Security System, USD260.8, + Add To Wishlist: This built-in wireless home security is perfect to ensure everyone’s safety while allowing you to keep tabs on your kids and pets. Features include a hi-res 180-degree immersive view camera has night vision, 2-way audio, and a 105-decible siren for when security is breached. Check out what your pets are doing via your smartphone/tablet, and if you’re traveling out-of-state, opt for alerts for sound, motion, door and window detection. You can now travel in peace.

6. Angelcare Movement and Sound Monitor, USD75, + Add To Wishlist: New mummies would absolutely love this award-winning baby movement and sound monitor system. With a Sensor pad to pick up bub’s slightest movements on the mattress and a Parent Unit that has a full colour digital and temperature display, you can finally get that much-needed shut eye at night. Its smart features offer temperature alert setting in case baby’s room is too hot/cold, and its Nursery Unit actually works as a night light so you don’t have to turn on the lights in the middle of the night.
