Smart home accessories can help foster and maintain a safer, more comfortable home. Smartphone and tablet apps allow users to turn lights on or off, see if the garage door was left open, communicate with visitors at the front door, adjust the thermostat - and more. Here are 5 smart home innovations that can help transform your house or apartment into a smarter, more efficient home in no time.
The Smarthub turns Verizon's 4G LTE Network into an internet connection wherever and whenever users need it - at home or on the road. And at home, users can remotely control up to 200 wi-fi enabled devices - from thermostats and lights to security cameras and motion sensors - from the Verizon Home app. It's a control center and traveling internet connection that keeps users connected, no matter where you are.
The Nest is an energy efficient thermostat for the 21st century. It learns from energy usage behaviors to help conserve energy and reduce monthly bills. Users can control their thermostat through a smartphone app from afar - but it'll go into energy-saving temperature mode if it senses people are away from home. And a monthly email report allows consumers to better understand their energy usage. The furnace is acting up? Nest will notify you.
A camera that gives families flexibility and peace of mind. The Canary Flex is easy to install - wirelessly or plugged in. The indoor/outdoor HD security camera is equipped with night vision and motion detection that captures sudden movements and unexpected activity. Users can watch the live feed from the Canary smartphone app or review footage later. And if you're worried about intruders, the Flex will send an alert to your phone when it detects unusual activity.
The Sengled Snap HD Camera pairs home security with an energy-efficient LED light bulb. The HD security footage can be streamed live from the Snap smartphone app or viewed later from the cloud. Users can receive alerts on their smartphone when mysterious activity passes through customized zones. Don't worry about frigid winters or heat waves - the Snap is designed to withstand four seasons. And setup is simple: twist the Sengled into a socket and connect it to your secure wireless network.
Answer the door away from home with the Ring Video Doorbell. The Ring streams and records HD video from the front door to your smartphone. Users can interact with guests remotely or buzz a guest in from the couch. Installation is seamless. Use existing doorbell wires or the built-in battery - then simply connect it to the secure wireless network.
