Technology for a Smart Home

Just like our phones became smarter, our homes are too! Here’s a list of great technology to turn your home into a smart home.

Hubs and controllers

Hubs and controllers manage all of your smart devices in your home.

Amazon Echo family

Google Home

Apple Home Pod

Thermostats

Control your heating and cooling systems from your smart phone or smart hub.

Nest Generation 2

Ecobee

Honeywell T5+ Smart Thermostat

Doorbells

Smart doorbells combine the features of a regular doorbell with a video camera recording system, and a two-way intercom. Control at the touch of a button.

Ring

Skybell

Nest Hello

August Doorbell Cam Pro

Smart Light Bulbs

Control your house’s lighting all from your smart phone or smart hub with smart light bulbs. They screw into regular light sockets, so no need to worry about further installation. Set an automated lighting schedule for the lights around your family’s lifestyle.

Philips Hue Family

Ecobee Switch +

Lifx

Vacuums

Smart vacuums are controlled by an app on your smart phone. Turn it on and off when you please.

iRobot Roomba

Shark Ion

LG Hum Bot

Lawn care

Smart lawn movers work the same way as a smart vacuum, just on the lawn. Smart sprinkler systems allow you to schedule your watering cycle easier and many even track the weather so it doesn’t water the grass when it’s raining.

Husqvarna Automower 315X

Robomow

Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controller

Smoke Alarm

Smart smoke alarms work very similar to regular smoke alarms, expect they will alert your phone when it gets triggered, if the batteries need replacing, and if they happen to be malfunctioning.

Nest Protect

Smart outlet plugs

Smart outlet plugs go into a regular plug and allows you to control anything that is plugged into it.

TP-Link’s Kasa Mini
