As technology continues to advance at lightning speed, smart home gadgets are flooding the market like never before. These devices may appear complex, but are in fact effective in providing simple solutions to everyday problems. Our Camelot Homes team would like to help you find the best smart home gadgets that are perfect for your luxury home and lifestyle.
Here are our top four picks:
- Smart Speaker: Amazon Echo
Forbes lists voice-activated home assistants as one of the top home design trends for 2017. When looking to integrate the best smart home gadgets into your living space, consider the Amazon Echo. The Echo is a smart speaker with built-in, voice-activated home assistant known as “Alexa.” Although the Echo is a speaker that allows you to play your favorite music with ease, it is so much more.
Echo can tell you the morning headlines, stock report or scores from last night’s game, all while you make breakfast. Although you can easily flip through the newspaper or even download this information on your computer or phone, this gadget is voice-activated and provides immediate results. Simply ask and those stock reports are yours, no log-in or scrolling through data on your phone required. Echo can also turn on lights before you enter a room and turn them off when it’s time for bed. The device offers numerous options and applications for daily life.
The Control4 is the ultimate smart gadget to control multiple smart devices in your home. This innovative equipment can integrate with nearly 10,000 different devices through its single and intuitive system. It can work with the Smart TV, lighting, thermostat, locks and more. Rely on this easy-to-use technology to manage a variety of brands from the Amazon Echo to Sony and Kwikset. All of the products sold through Camelot Homes can be controlled from a single Control4 remote or app.
Developed by the Bird Home Automation Group located in San Francisco and Berlin, the Doorbird smart tech allows you to see and speak with visitors in front of your home without having to open the door or even be home. You can see and speak with a delivery person when you are at the office, out to lunch, or halfway around the world on vacation.
