This post is just a small listing of items that we have found that you may want for your own smart home or for a loved one. There are families who even keep check on their elderly parents (who have wifi) by the use of the new Amazon Echo Show.
Echo Show Devices
The Echo Show has the ability to choose whether you want the camera hid for privacy or open to allow your loved ones to see your face as you talk with them. This is a really neat device, especially for those whose loved ones live far away. The Echo Show 8 is the newest device and already very popular.
Smart Plugs are an inexpensive way of adding smart devices to your home. According to Amazon,” Amazon Smart Plug lets you voice control your lights, fans, coffee makers, and more. All you need is an Alexa-enabled device like Echo, Fire TV, Fire tablet, Sonos One, or even just the Alexa app on your phone. And with multiple Amazon Smart Plugs, you can control multiple outlets.”
Of course there are the electronic door locks that many people also use. While it can be very handy to be able to lock your door remotely, I would personally question whether the technology is perfected before I put one on my door. There have been reports of people who accidentally locked themselves out in their underwear and could not get back in. Of course, that can happen with a regular lock as well. Here is a link to one of the better devices but judge for yourself if it is right for you.
You can even clean your home with a smart device like the robotic vacuums. Some are manual controlled and less expensive but many now can be controlled with your smartphone or a combination of the device and your Smart hub. The Shark IQ R101 AE with self-empty base is an example of this newest technology and works with Amazon Alexa devices. Imagine telling Alexa (The echo device) where and when to vacuum your floors. Now that is neat. Of course, you can also control it with your phone app if you choose.
