This device is perfect for families, especially if you have babies or tots.

Smart knobs

Replacing your old stove knobs, with smart knobs will provide your safety by having smoke and gas indicators via built-in motion sensors. When the stove has been accidentally left on too long, these knobs will automatically turn themselves off. How smart is that! Left the house and don’t remember if you turned the stove off? No problem.

Robotic security system

Clearly, you want your house to be secured from intruders, whether you’re in or out of it. You can find indoor robotic security systems that use facial recognition and sound detection. When something draws its attention it will notify you. The cool thing is that you can adjust it to your own habits and movements in the house, so it doesn’t go off at any movement. This gadget is the next best thing to having your own security guard.

Robotic lawn mower

Nothing puts a damper on your relaxing weekend than mowing the lawn. Now you can relax and let a robotic lawn mower do the work for you. It will mow the lawn and will adjust itself to more problematic areas, while you do something more enjoyable.

Smart Locks

Maybe you’re wondering how a lock can be smart, but when you can open the door remotely for a family member who forgot their key at home, or if the lock notifies you that your door is left ajar, that’s pretty smart.
