Nest recently came out with their answer for the best doorbell camera, The Nest Hello, and it will look to challenge Skybell and Ring doorbell cameras in this exploding market. Thanks to easy installation and mostly positive customer reviews, doorbell cameras are becoming a “must-have” for any smart home.
Smart thermostats begin saving you money the moment you hook it up to your home. Three of the most popular smart thermostats are the Ecobee, Nest and Sensi. These three products allow you to control your homes temperature from your smart phone, pair with virtual assistants like Amazon Echo, and can even learn your patterns and preferences. Each of these thermostats have some key advantages over the others, but the Ecobee smart thermostat has the best features and has a seriously easy set up so anyone can hook it into their home’s HVAC system. Plus, Ecobee’s “Follow Me” feature is one of the coolest things we’ve seen from a smart thermostat, and it sets it over the top as the best smart thermostat you can buy.
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.
