Be a smart Santa, give smart home gifts

The holidays are here. You may need to shop for more family and friends… or maybe yourself. Here are five gifts to make you look like the smartest gift-giver around. And isn’t that what it’s all about?

Maybe not. Either way, these tech-savvy treats are sure to brighten up anyone’s home.

With so much online shopping, packages and gifts are left at front doors constantly. Thieves love that. So why not get a gift that keeps an eye on your stuff? The Nest WiFi Doorbell can do that. It gives you an alert any time someone comes to the door and allows you to listen and speak to them.

Want something that can check out the other spots around your house besides the front door? The Ring Floodlight can do it. It’s a wireless floodlight with a security cam and night vision. Really covers all the bases, doesn’t it?

For the inside of your home, you can’t go wrong with the Google Home Mini. It’s a tiny product that packs a big punch. Just use your voice to quickly find information about anything. It’s your own personal Google that can help manage your day and it’s available at an incredibly low price.

One product to help around the home every day is the iRobot Roomba Vacuum. It navigates every floor type and every obstacle in your home. The best part? It connects to your phone so you can clean your floors no matter where you are – hands free.

The fifth and final gift on this list is another one you can use with your phone. The Nest Thermostat with built-in WiFi allows you to control your home’s temperature from a phone, tablet, or laptop. Schedule a custom plan to save energy and money.

And there you have it. Five smart products to make life a little easier so you can enjoy your home with family and friends for years to come.
