7 Best Smart Home Gadgets You Should Have In 2017

Introduction

I’ve always been fascinated by the idea of a home that’s smart. When I’m not working or writing, I’m probably watching sci-fi shows like Star Trek and The Expanse. And while they’re set in the future and involve aliens, space travel and many other things that aren’t quite possible yet, there are plenty of technologies we can use right now to make our houses smarter. So here’s a list of the best smart home gadgets on the market right now:

Nest Learning Thermostat

The Nest Learning Thermostat has a simple, easy-to-use interface. The thermostat can be controlled from anywhere using your phone and it learns from you to help you save energy. It also comes with a remote sensor that will monitor temperature in different parts of the house so that the whole place is comfortable at all times. This gadget is perfect for those who like their homes to be as energy efficient as possible while still being comfortable when they’re there!

Philips Hue Smart Bulb Starter Kit

The kit comes with three bulbs (that can be controlled individually or together) that are compatible with Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit and Google Assistant. You also get an LED hub to connect your lights to other devices that have Bluetooth or Wi-Fi capabilities.

The smart lights come in a variety of colors including white, warm white, cool white (which resembles natural sunlight), amber/orange and green/blue tones as well as reds, blues and purples — perfect for setting the mood at any time of day!

Amazon Echo Dot (2nd Generation)

iRobot Roomba 690 Robotic Vacuum Cleaning System with Wi-Fi Connectivity – Works with Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple HomeKit – Gray/Black (Certified Refurbished)

If you’re looking for a smart robotic vacuum, then the iRobot Roomba 690 is one of the best options on the market. It’s compatible with Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple HomeKit so you can control it using your voice or app. You can also schedule cleanings with ease using the app–just press “clean” and your Roomba will start working its magic!

The iRobot Roomba 690 comes with three cleaning modes: automatic cleaning mode (where it goes around in a random pattern), edge cleaning mode (which targets hard-to-reach areas) and spot cleaning mode (for those pesky spots that need extra attention). The vacuum has five times more suction power than previous models at 1,000 Pa (.1 inch water column), so it picks up even large debris like cereal flakes off hardwood floors without leaving behind any streaks or dust bunnies under furniture pieces like other vacuums often do when they miss spots while moving around during regular cleanings throughout each week/month depending on how often one wants their house cleaned up regularly throughout days/months depending on frequency desired by homeowners who want weekly/monthly visits from professionals such as maids
