Gadgets are becoming a part of our everyday life and smartphones that we are starting to be addicted, depending on them for our daily actions. As technology continuously evolving, so do these gadgets that we are fond of. These innovations appear from a necessity of solving the problems that old products have and besides new and improved functions, they also come with a beautiful design. Here are 8 appliances that will give your home a touch of high technology.
Nest Labs Thermostat
Nest Labs’ WiFi- and sensor-enabled thermostat is poised to become a household name after being acquired by Google in January. The unit, compatible with most HVAC systems, is built around an operating system that remembers the temperatures you prefer, can handle efficiently with their compatible appliances (like Whirlpool for Ref, Chamberlain for garage door and others). It takes that data, programs itself, and automatically turns the temperature down when you’re away. Nest can be remotely managed using your smartphone, tablet, or laptop anywhere.
Robot Vacuum Cleaners
A robotic vacuum cleaner (aka robovac), is an autonomous robotic vacuum cleaner that has intelligent programming and a limited vacuum cleaning system. Some designs use spinning brushes to reach tight corners. Others combine a number of cleaning features (mopping, UV sterilization, etc.) simultaneous to vacuuming, thus rendering the machine into more than just a robot “vacuum” cleaner.
It has a technology to pass a way around on your home regardless of its size, it recharge on its own.
Philips Hue Wireless LED Light Bulbs
You’re not still using an on/off wall switch, are you? The Philips Hue package combines LED bulbs, a WiFi bridge, and a mobile app to give homeowners lighting control via a smartphone or tablet. For more details about it you can check out their official website.
Smart Alarm Systems
Internet-connected home alarm systems are fighting for attention as expensive old-guard systems like ADT reinvent themselves. Piper (pictured here) is an all-in-one WiFi-enabled system with integrated 1080p camera, a siren, built-in motion sensors, and other home automation features. Users can access Piper remotely via an iOS or Android app.
Schlage Camelot Touchscreen Deadbolt
Schlage is bringing door locks into the digital age with its Camelot Touchscreen Deadbolt, featuring Internet connectivity and a touchscreen for PINs. The Camelot includes alarms of different volume levels to suit your security needs. Internet connectivity is done through the Z-Wave wireless protocol (not WiFi). But features such as the ability to unlock from your smartphone, set the deadbolt to lock automatically after 30 seconds, and receive texts if the alarm is triggered give users more control and flexibility than any lock and key.
Sonos is currently the king of standalone WiFi home speakers. One Sonos speaker can fill a house with music teed up from a smartphone using the Sonos app. The app gives you access to your iTunes library or streaming services such as Pandora and Spotify. But Sonos won’t be on top of the WiFi speaker mountain forever. Bose launched a line of SoundTouch WiFi speakers that offer the same services as Sonos. Also, Samsung has added music streaming and a mobile app to its Shape wireless speakers.

If you have a washer and/or dryer running on fumes, maybe it’s time to get smart. Whirlpool sells smart home appliances (refrigerator, dishwasher, washer, and dryer) that use the company’s 6th Sense Live technology to connect to an online database of energy prices, so you can automatically run appliances when power is cheapest. From the Whirlpool mobile app, you can check when a wash will be done, receive alerts when it’s time for more laundry detergent, or start or stop a laundry load remotely. Korean electronics giant LG and Samsung also created their own version of it.
Withings Smart Body Analyzer
It looks like a typical scale, but the Withings Smart Body Analyzer is a health data machine. Setup is done completely with a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. When you step on, the LCD screen shows your weight, body fat percentage, heart rate, and room air quality, and the device syncs data to your Withings mobile app (free on iOS or Android). There the data is plotted along colorful graphs to show progress. You can also set up goals using the app.
