Six of the Best Smart Home Devices for 2018


There’s no better way to turn a dull, dumb house into a lovely, lively and smart abode than using a set of today’s Smart Home Devices. Boosted by the now-viral adoption of Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, intelligent home technology seems to be the future. And while you could say adoption is still in its infancy, there are some Smart Home Devices to let you control your home’s lighting, thermostat, and a few other tasks.

Choose and pick your favorite smart home gadgets from the following and stay in an intelligent abode. 

  1. Digital Voice Assistant

The best in this category is the Amazon Echo. It is small and intelligent, Wi-Fi enabled and voice-operated speaker designed to handle all queries using Amazon’s Alexa voice service. With this Voice Assistant, you will conveniently automate your home and get almost everything done while in the comfort of your sofa.

  1. Heatworks Tetra

Out, goes that traditional dishwater and, in, comes a sophisticated and more efficient solution called Heatworks Tetra. Compact and shapely, this device takes efficiency and conservation to new levels as it just needs some two liters and 10 minutes to get the job done. You will control everything using a companion app. But what you’ll find amazing is it is roomy enough to accommodate all your cutlery, glassware and crockery on one go.

  1. Nest Learning Thermostat

It is another Wi-Fi enabled, intelligent thermostat designed to control the temperature of your home. What this thermostat does is it not only adjusts the optimal temperature, but also learns to master your preferred habits and preferences, all these taking just one week. It is a marvelous device that automates your home’s temperature. But the best of them all is that everything is done straight from your device.

  1. Smart Lights: Philips Hue

There are lots of competitor products, but what makes Philips Hue a lot better is the quality of its lighting system. The hub and the three smart bulbs light up your home on a single tap of your smartphone – Philips Hue app. You can also use the app to adjust brightness, change colors, set timers and do a couple of other tasks.

  1. A Lock

Thanks to the August Smart Lock, you will no longer have to leave your home keys under the doormat or at a strategic location in the backyard. This technology only needs to sense whether you are at home before it prompts the door lock to open. If you are away from the house, this technology securely locks all doors.

  1. Smart Air Conditioner: Tado

Place it near your air conditioner, and you will never have to open all windows to let in cool, fresh air. Tado isn’t a smart air conditioner, as such, but when you place it near the AC unit, the infrared commands it comes with helps execute your instructions. You only need to set it so that it automatically adjusts the temperature based the current temperature indoors.
