Remember when we had to use a physical key to both unlock our car door and start the engine? How inconvenient now that we can leave our keys in our pocket and just open to door and push to start the engine? Someone smarter than me figured out that we can use similar technology to sync our smartphones with smart locks to open and lock doors. The two best products on the market are the Kwikset Touch-to-Open™ Kevo smart lock and August smart lock.
Smart cameras and new ways to monitor your home are becoming more and more prevalent, and two of the best smart cameras are the Nest Cam Outdoor and Ring Stick Up. Both of these products offer many of the same features, like night vision capabilities, direct link to your smartphone, as well as a number of other features that allow you to see what is going on inside or outside your home.
