Top 10 Smart Home Gift Ideas
Streamline your home with these smart gift ideas.
Are you looking for some high-tech, smart home gift ideas? Well, today, I'm going to go over my top eleven picks. So stay tuned in this smart home holiday shopping guide.
Google Nest Hub
We’re starting with one of my favorite items, and that is going to be the Google Nest Hub. It does so many things, from controlling your home to being a smart digital picture frame. You can look up recipes, set timers, and watch videos. It does absolutely everything.
Next up, we have the SwitchBot. If you've got a dumb device that just cannot be automated because it takes a button to do whatever you need it to do, this is going to be a device you're going to want to check out.
This small device has a lever on it that can push buttons. If you've got something like a fan, a coffee maker, a light switch, this is going to be able to push that button for you.
And the best thing about this one is that it integrates into Alexa, Google, IFTTT, and Apple's HomeKit. So it's got a lot of potential for integrating into your smart home.
Wemo Mini smart plugs
Next up we have smart plugs. You can never go wrong with smart plugs. If you have a lamp that you love and you don't want to trade it for a smart one or you don't want to put a smart light bulb in it, you can always get a smart plug. Smart plugs can be used not only for lighting, but for fans or coffee makers or anything you plug in. So a smart plug is definitely a good option to have in your smart home.
This one here is the Wemo Mini. I like the Wemo Mini because you could have two per socket. And this one works in the Amazon, Google, and Apple HomeKit environments.
Roku Streaming Stick+
It wouldn’t be a shopping guide if we didn’t have a streaming device. This is the Roku Streaming Stick+. It's compatible with HD, 4K, and HDR streaming. And you can get absolutely everything that you want into this package right here.
But this is one of the best streaming sticks that we have found out there, other than maybe the Google Chromecast with Google TV.
Sonos One smart speaker
Reolink Argus 3 camera
The Reolink Argus 3 has to be one of my favorite budget security cameras that we've come across this year. The picture is absolutely amazing. I love the look of it. I love that it has a built-in spotlight. There are no monthly fees. It is very affordable. So I definitely recommend checking one of these out if you guys are looking into a security camera.
Eufy Video Doorbell
So next up, we've got the Eufy Video Doorbell. Now this is the 2K version, but you can also grab it in 1080p. This is a fantastic video doorbell. I love it because there are no subscription fees.
It saves all of its data locally to a base station that's in your house, and that base station also doubles as a chime. So when somebody pushes the doorbell, it's going to chime on this base. This base can also be used for any of the Eufy cameras. If you're looking into getting a good system, check out of the Eufy products.
Here we have a Roborock Vacuum. What I love about this vacuum is that you can program settings for different floors. It's got memory for up to four different levels. And what it does is it uses LiDAR navigation to detect the rooms, and then it knows what floor it is on. So that is cool that you can move it around to different floors.
We've also got no-go areas. So if you want to set up an area for this thing not to go, you can do that. Another thing right here that I thought was really cool is that you can set up different schedules for different rooms.
For example, you can set up the living room to be vacuumed at 9:00 a.m. and set the kitchen for 8:00 a.m. You can get detailed as you want.
Echo Dot (4th Gen) with clock
Last but not least, how can we go through all of these Amazon deals and not mention the new Echo Dot (4th Gen) with a clock? So this item right here is just a great product. This one's going to have a better speaker than the Gen 3 and comes with a clock built into it.
