6 Smart Home Products You Should Own

Do you love the idea of turning your home into a smart home? These days, there are plenty of products that can help you do it. Here are some devices you should definitely have in your home.

Digital Assistants

You can't have a smart home without a few digital assistants. These devices allow you to speak commands and have the devices react. No matter what digital assistant you go with, consider going with the same assistant throughout the entire home. You can gain several benefits such as an intercom system where all the speakers talk to each other and using the same commands in every room of the home.

Door Locks

There are many benefits to having smart locks installed in your home. Not only can you give voice commands to lock the doors at the end of the day, but you can get alerts when people enter your home. It gives you some peace of mind that your home is well-protected, and that you know exactly who is entering and exiting your home. 

Automated Shades

There is no reason to manually operate your shades these days when you can automate them instead. Automated shades are going to open and close on your schedule or with your voice command. You can have the shades close during the day when you're away at work, and open up in the evening when you come out.

Wall Plugs

Smart wall plugs are essential for helping automate older tech devices that you can't control via your phone. Anything that you plug into a smart plug can be turned on and off by controlling the plug. The only catch is that the device needs to be left in an on position, typically with a physical switch. Some tech products with digital switches can be turned off by cutting the power, but won't turn on when the switch is turned on without that press of the button. 


Internet-connected doorbells are becoming very popular recently. Not only do they work as a security camera that allows you to see who approaches your door, but they also work as an intercom system to let people think that you are home. If someone rings the doorbell, you can answer it on your phone and speak to the person directly. 


Automating your lighting is a must these days since turning on lights with a voice command is incredibly convenient. When you have your lights automated, you can program them to turn on and off at certain times of the day with sophisticated timers. Set up a geofence around your home so when you come home the light will turn on automatically.
