One major complaint that people have about smart home devices is that they aren’t useful. For instance, using a smart home speaker to know today’s weather conditions may be exciting for a few days. But, the novelty of it wears thin after a few days of usage.
Here, in this post, we highlight the best smart home products for 2019, that are not fun but also incredibly useful and add convenience to your daily tasks.
1. Security Cameras
When we think of home automation, CCTV cameras don’t usually come to our mind. Whether you install a stand-alone IP camera or a full-fledged CCTV security system both devices help you keep an eye on your home (or kids, pets) while you are away.
Eurovigil’s CCTV camera system is an easy-to-use, comprehensive security solution. When paired with the EMS (Eurovigil Monitoring Station) it helps you enjoy immense peace of mind, knowing that your abode is protected 24/7.
2. Video Doorbells
Even if you have CCTV cameras monitoring your home, adding a video doorbell is a great way to enhance home security further. Placed at your front door, a video doorbell like the Eurovigil I See 400 lets you see who is at the front door from anywhere in your home. When paired with a smart door lock, you can remotely unlock your door to let in family and friends.
3. Smart Plugs
Smart plugs are a great addition to your smart home solutions. As the name implies, smart plugs turn any regular device that plugs into a wall socket into a smart device. With smart plugs, you can control home appliances remotely. Turn on/off lights, switch on water heaters, or adjust the speed controls of fans by just tapping on the connected app on your Smartphone. Though a tiny device, the smart plug opens several smart home possibilities.
4. Smart Lights
Smart lights are the most popular of all smart home appliances. Easy to control and with a definite cool factor, smart lights present you with plenty of conveniences. You can control the entire lighting of your home with just a few taps on your mobile device.
Some latest smart lights come with the ability to turn on/off lights by issuing voice controls. You can also set timers and schedules to turn on/off lights at specific times.
5. Smart Fire Alarm
A smart fire alarm helps you detect burning, smoke, gas leaks and carbon monoxide in your home quickly. The sensors can detect both slow and fast burning fires and alert the connected mobile immediately. Furthermore, you can also configure your smart fire alarm to switch on smart lights in your home automatically in case of an emergency.
6. A Smart Hub
If you plan to expand your home automation in the future, then you need a centralised smart hub. A smart hub like the Gateway Panel from Eurovigil connects all your lighting fixtures, security systems and other smart home appliances to a secure integrated network. Using the smart hub, you can manage all your smart devices from a single dashboard.
