From some time to this part we are more and more surrounded by intelligent devices. While we might think that technology affects new devices or already invented devices such as smartphones, the truth is that even the most common in our homes can be equipped with intelligence to work in a 2.0 way. Light bulbs, thermostats or security cameras are some of the many objects that we can control with our mobile phone or other device such as a smart speaker. In this post we show you some of the most outstanding products if you want to enter this world of home automation or add it to your catalog if you already have some other.
Teckin Smart Plug
The basis of every intelligent home is to provide it with plugs that are also intelligent. This socket is a guarantee of quality on the basis that it is made by a recognised manufacturer such as Teckin. You will be able to control all the appliances that you connect to these sockets , so that, for example, you can connect or disconnect a coffee machine or a lamp without having to press any switch. The price is quite good for what these plugs usually cost and it also has a succulent offer; if you buy one it will cost you 14.99 euros but if you buy a pack of two you will save a few euros, as they will cost you 24.99 euros.

One of the functions that, at least in my opinion, are more interesting of the intelligent devices is to be able to control the temperature of the house even through the mobile phone if you are outside . With this smart thermostat you can do that. You can even purchase a kit for different rooms and thus regulate the temperature you want in each room. Depending on the kit you choose, you can find a price ranging from 98.03 euros to 194.16 euros . You can buy it by clicking here.
A light bulb? Yes, a light bulb. But not just any light bulb, but a smart one. This bulb, which has different intensities and colours , can be controlled via your mobile in a really simple way, either from the manufacturer’s app or via HomeKit if you have an iPhone. This way you can say “hey Siri, turn on the light” and see how it turns on instantly. Also, like all the devices in this post, it works with Alexa from the Amazon Echo, the Apple HomePod, Google Home and other smart speakers. Its price per unit is 32.99 , although you can buy a set from 4 to 122.62 . You can buy it by clicking here .
