December’s here and it’s time to start stocking up on gifts if you haven’t already! After all, festive gift-giving is part of the charm of the season. But instead of the usual, how about trying something different this year? Something that’s high-tech and as useful as it is fun to use? That’s where smart home solutions come in.
Keep reading to discover some great gifts that you can send to your loved ones, colleagues and employees to make their day-to-day lives a little easier and a whole lot more fun.
Have that friend that keeps losing their remote controllers? This December, why not gift them with one cube to rule them all?
Behold the Magic Cube – one of the many handy smart home solutions to make life easier.
All IR home appliances can be controlled via the Magic Cube, and you can do it from anywhere as long as you have your smartphone with you.
You can also control it via voice commands if you use a voice assistant such as Amazon Alexa.
Smart 1080p IP Camera
This smart camera makes an excellent gift to give to loved ones as it’s all about improving home security. And it can be used alone or as part of a fully-integrated home automation system.
To begin with, it has a built-in motion detector function. How does this help? When you’re away from your home, you’ll get an alert on your smartphone if the camera detects any intruders in the house along with a timestamp.
It can go a step further and turn on video recording so that you’ll have footage of the intruder and their movements within your home.
Another great feature of this camera is the fact that you can use it to keep an eye on people you care about at home. For example, if the kids are home while you’re out, you can make sure they’re playing safely. If you have older parents who are living by themselves, it’s a great way to always be able to keep an eye on them in case of emergencies. Or if you have pets you can keep an eye on them via this camera as well.
But that’s not all. This device also supports two-way communication, making it so much more than just a camera. You can use it to communicate with your loved ones at home via your smartphone from anywhere in the world.
You might be asking, though, if there’s any point in having this camera on at the night or in dark rooms since the footage might not be useful in low light conditions. However, that’s not the case. This device also allows for high-quality night vision recording.
Another great feature is that it covers a wide area from its mounted position in your ceiling. How does it do this? It can rotate and adjust its position to cover almost the entire room. The camera has a 75-degree vertical viewing angle and a 355 horizontal viewing angle.
Smart Door Lock T1
If home security as a festive gift is something that’s right up your alley, you can also consider smart door locks.
For that loved one that’s always losing their keys, gift them a smart home lock that operates on fingerprint recognition!
Smart Wi-Fi Socket B25UK
How about a gift that keeps on giving in terms of energy savings (and safety!)?
This smart wifi socket can be controlled from a smartphone from anywhere. You just have to plug in your iron or any other device that often gets left turned on, and you’ll never have to worry again. You’ll be able to turn it off from your smartphone even once you’ve left home (and you’ll get alerts to remind you as well)!
Again, this can be used alone or in tandem with a range of other smart home solutions.
