How to make your home SMART
If tech is your thing, you're in the right place! If you're looking to simplify day to day life in your home, you are also in the right place!
We've compiled a list of new tech products that we think might be your new favorite additions to your home. So keep reading and be sure to check out the links for each product listed.
- One of our favorites, the Rachio 3 smart sprinkler controller, can help you keep your beloved lawn looking green and lush while saving money on water. It installs in minutes, letting you control your in-ground sprinkler system from anywhere using your phone. It can also automatically reschedule watering cycles when significant rainfall is in the forecast, a standout feature that performed well in our tests.
- Do you have pets or allergies? If so, a smart air purifier might be the perfect addition to your home. A high-quality air purifier can remove bacteria, dust, industrial emissions, mold, odor, pet dander, pollen, viruses, and other contaminants from the air. PCMag has made it a priority to test a wide range of smart air purifiers to help you select the best one for your needs and budget.
- Another fun device is the Wagz smart dog collar and wireless fence system with an app that includes GPS tracking. Users can train their dogs with sound and vibration (not shocks) and track a pet’s paths, whereabouts, and sleep cycle. Switch on an LED for nighttime walks.
- I don't think anyone enjoys doing laundry, but this product might make you dread it a little less. Laundry Jet is an air-powered laundry shoot that eliminates laundry baskets and dirty clothes in every room, as well as the task of carrying the laundry from one room to another.
- Roborock’s new S7 Max V Ultra is a smart vacuum with a mop. It uses sonic technology to scrub the floor up to 3,000 times per minute; the mop lifts when carpet is detected. LIDAR navigation creates detailed maps and can identify rooms across four levels.
- Let the Kohler Moxie elevate your everyday showering routine. Easily gear up or wind down with the perfect soundtrack or your favorite podcast. Plus, the speaker easily removes, so you can bring it wherever you want to go — the beach, a picnic, or just lounging in your backyard. The Moxie speaker is equipped with built-in Amazon Alexa for hands-free voice activation.
- Never miss a leak with this leak detection device! Pair the ZLINK Z-Wave Plus Water Leak and Freezer Detector with an automatic water shut off valve, and you're all set. Catch the leak before it costs you lots of time, money, and frustration.
