From smartphones to smart watches, there are plenty of hi-tech gadgets available for your personal use. Now, there are a few worth getting for your home, according to one tech expert.
Belkin WeMo is a family of products that include switches and motion detectors for users to wirelessly control their home appliances and lights from anywhere through a mobile app.
The item, priced at $60 to $130 depending on the gadget, can be used to easily automate a lamp or a coffee pot, said Andrea Smith, technology editor at Living in Digital Times.
The Kwikset Kevo, a Bluetooth-enabled deadbolt, reads an eKey code stored in the mobile app downloaded onto a user's iOS device to unlock a door with the touch of a finger. "The Kevo is kind of big and clunky but it fits right where your existing lock is," said Smith.
She also noted that the lock, for a hefty $219, comes with a key fob for kids who are too young to have an iOS device so that they still have that same "touch" capability.
For folks looking for a device that can keep track of all their smart home gadgets, here's one.
The Revolv, which acts as a hub to control all of your smart gadgets, works with a mobile app. For example, a consumer can use the app to create actions or set time-specific commands for their smart home device to turn on or off. "Unfortunately, the hub itself is not very attractive with a red base and clear plastic top," said Smith.
The Revolv, for $299, works only on iOS devices but an app for Android devices is expected to be available soon, according to the company.
