12 Smart Home Gadgets That Can Transform Your Life

12 Smart Home Gadgets That Can Transform Your Life

If like us, you have also grown up on a staple diet of The Jetsons, or even Iron Man for that matter, you will understand the hype around smart homes. I mean, who wouldn’t want JARVIS at their beck and call. And we might not be Tony Stark, but that doesn’t mean we can’t emulate his lifestyle, sans the super suit of course, but no harm being ambitious. Who are we to stop you from living your ultimate futuristic dream? Coming back to the point, smart homes are a distinct possibility now and if you want to have a house that is responsive to all your needs then these fixtures might be a small step towards converting that old home into a hi-tech haven.

So let us take you on a virtual tour of the home that will let you live your sci-fi fantasies and turn them into reality too.

1. Outdoors

a. Kuna Maximus Smart Security Light

You can never be too thorough when it comes to security. And sure, while intercoms do the job just fine, the Kuna Maximus Smart Security Light takes it a step further. The elegant looking light fixture sits pretty near your door and detects a visitor’s presence as soon as they reach your doorstep. Wait, it doesn’t stop there, the gadget also sends an image of the visitor directly to your phone, making your life a lot easier and dare we say, safer.

b) RiZZ Out-Door Mat

If you are hygiene obsessed, then you are in for a treat. Everyone loves coming back to a clean home and it’s only natural to bring in a trail of dust with you. But not when you have the RiZZ Out-Door Mat stationed right outside your homestead. The luxury doormat keeps dirt, sand and all other nasties at bay. Even if you are the proud owner of profiled shoes, the mat has an 80% efficiency rate to clean it up and make that transition from the outdoors to the indoors dust-free. The secret behind its success lies in its aluminium profile which is accompanied by a coating of anthracite that increases the longevity of the mat and makes it last for a good decade.

c. August Smart Lock Pro+ Connect

Nothing scares the living daylights out of us more than realising that we have left our keys inside the house. So, the idea of being keyless and still being able to unlock and lock from miles away sounds like a dream. Compatible with Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant, the Smart Lock Pro+ not only controls the door lock but also tracks who comes and goes from your place. But the best feature of the lock is that it can be attached to your existing deadbolt so when you do feel like using your keys, you can switch right back at ease.

2. Living Room

a. Coosno Coffee Table

We love ourselves a multi-functional coffee table, especially when we can store and cool 68 cans of beer in it. Yep, you heard that right. A coffee table that not only acts as a mini-fridge but also has an in-built music system (with six speakers), Google assistant, and funky lights that turn it into a disco ball of sorts when you are having a party at home. Nuff’ said.

b. Miliboo Smart Sofa

If you have been looking to toss your old couch and get a new one then let the Miliboo Smart Sofa be the only excuse to do so. The highly ambitious sofa comes integrated with vibrating seats that ensure you are super comfy while you Netflix and chill in peace. It also comes with a wireless charging feature, so you don’t have to stress about putting your phone to charge. And as an added bonus there are built-in speakers and lights at the base that you can adjust according to the intensity and colour.

c. Bang & Olufsen Beovision Harmony Television

A TV so attractive that there’s a high probability of you just staring at the blank screen instead of actually turning it on. The world got its first glimpse of the Beovision Harmony at the Milan Design Week. Coming from the house of Bang & Olufsen, the TV boasts of brilliant sound that is intermingled with a 4K OLED display from LG that’s a treat for the eyes. The sleek design of the television is complemented by the oak veneer speakers. And we are considering making it the centrepiece at our place.

3. Kitchen

a. June Oven

Cooking isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but a man’s gotta eat. If you are a novice in the kitchen and the idea of turning the gas on is terrifying then the June Oven might be the right fit for you. A convection oven, air fryer, dehydrator, slow-cooker, broiler, toaster and warming drawer in one, the oven’s list of functions is exhaustive. So, the next time you feel like surprising your bae with an edible meal that he’ll thank you for, befriend the June Oven.

b. Nuova Simonelli Aurelia Wave T3

If your day just doesn’t start without a steaming cuppa then we feel you. That dose of caffeine can make or break and there’s nothing more frustrating than a substandard cup of Joe. So, why not switch over to a coffee machine that ensures that you walk out that door feeling energised? Might we suggest the NS Simonelli Aurelia Wave T3?

c. Perfect Drink Pro

Hosting a party at home and the resident bartender called in sick? There’s no reason why you can’t take on that responsibility. Sure, it’s intimidating to mix up the right ratio to make that perfect cocktail but with a little help from the Perfect Drink Pro Smart Scale, you’ll be pouring drinks like a pro. The scale lets you know the exact second you need to stop pouring the drink to get that perfect mix that hits right in the feels. It pairs easily with the phone so you can keep taking a quick peek every now and then to see that you are going according to the recipe. But there’s always room for improvisation, isn’t there?

4. Bathroom

a. Numi Intelligent Toilet with KOHLER Konnect

According to a study, the average adult spends about three hours and nine minutes in the loo every week. Now, that’s quite a while and doesn’t it make sense to make those three hours and nine minutes extra comfortable and personalised? Leave it up to KOHLER to come up with the best bathroom technology. The Numi Intelligent Toilet comes with warm water cleansing, a snug heated seat, automatic deodorization, foot warmer, wireless speakers and more. Toss in some more features and we might just make the toilet our throne and the loo our kingdom.

b. Mango Smart Mirror

The last time someone asked a mirror ‘who is the fairest of them all’ met with a gruesome end, in all fairness that’s what you get for being vain. But asking this smart mirror for constructive criticism might actually get you a fairly satisfactory response. From figuring out your exercise regime, sleep schedule to the calories ingested and hydration, the Mango Mirror should be nicknamed “Mom”.

c. EvaDrop Shower Head

The way humankind is progressing, there’s a high chance that we will be out of water and pretty much all of the other resources in a short span of time. So, make a smart decision and opt for a shower head that has been specifically designed to save water. Fitted with an advanced sensor system, that customises the water flow according to your convenience. This smart accessory might just be designed to save the environment one shower at a time.
