Home Automation Gifts

 

It’s every parent’s worst nightmare: you look away for one second and your baby has wriggled their way into some impossible situation that potentially puts their safety in immediate danger. New parents are especially at risk and prone to be even more overprotective with their first born. Enter the 1080p Wireless Baby Monitoring System from Connico. This system offers the highest quality video with a 350° horizontal pan and 100° vertical tilt, which means no matter where your little tike has toddled off to, you can trace their every move in real-time via your iPhone or android device. Concerned about trusting a new babysitter? Connico has you covered by offering not only multiple cameras to be linked to a single account but also offering multiple users access. Now both parents, grandparents, siblings or whomever you trust most with the safety of your child can rest assured that everything is A-OK. Worried about losing touch with your little one on that long business trip? The Connico offers two-way audio so you can talk to your newborn knowing that they’re getting the best quality audio experience…it will sound like you’re right by their side. Reliability has even been tested on 2.4G wifi/3G/4G networks so no matter how far you travel, you’ll always be right by their side. You can’t put a price on never missing a single moment.

Home Automation for the Tech Savvy Person

Harmony Home Hub

 

Home Automation Gifts

If you are the type of person that’s no stranger to technology and has all the latest gadgets to make your living room feel more like a movie theater, then this is the next logical step. This device turns your android or iOS device into a next-level universal remote, capable of controlling 8 separate devices. Want to take it to the next level? This device integrates with your Amazon Alexa to add voice commands, giving you a truly futuristic hands-off experience. Sometimes you just want to turn your brain off after a grueling work week. Well, this is the ultimate Swiss army knife for anyone who wants to take “couch potato” to a new level. Dim the lights, tune into your favorite TV show, bump up the thermostat a few degrees for that extra cozy feeling, and power up that Sonos speaker for the ultimate getaway: all with the touch of a button. That’s right, the Harmony Home Hub offers customized settings to trigger multiple events with the tap of a button. Of course, if you have your device tucked away in a media cabinet and forgot to leave the doors open, you’d have to get up off the couch, open the door and walk back to the couch, defeating the purpose of having the remote in the first place. Well for all you absent-minded folks, they even though of that! The Harmony Hub lets you control devices behind closed cabinets using a combination of IR, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth wireless signals. Now if only it could drive to the grocery store to buy the popcorn for you…

Home Automation for the Elderly

Philips Hue White A19 4-Pack 60W Equivalent Dimmable LED Smart Bulb 

 

Home Automation Gifts

Clap on. Clap Off. If you were born before the mid 90’s, you’ll instantly recognize that catch-phrase. The marketing was so good that it’s become a classic, and so has the concept. Fortunately for us, the technology hasn’t stagnated and today we have something much better: the Philips Hue White Dimmable LED. These bulbs are voice compatible with Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, Google Assistant or can be manually controlled via the Phillips Hue App. As we begin to age, simple tasks such as standing up and reaching for a light switch require more and more energy and become equally daunting. That’s what makes this the perfect gift for an elderly person or someone with equally limited mobility. With one simple command or touch of the finger, you can eliminate all that work and enjoy the comforts of your favorite chair. There’s no more walking into a dark room and fumbling for a light switch with your hands full. Just add the Hue Motion Sensor and you can have a hands (and voice) free experience!
