However, some devices offer superior performance, comfort, and security. After reading this article, you’ll discover the four best smart devices you definitely need in your automated home.
Nest Learning Thermostat
The 2nd generation Nest thermostat is 25% thinner than its predecessor, and now it comes with a built-in feature that allows it to “learn” your habits. This means the thermostat will memorize your routine & preferences. In other words, you don’t have to do anything… because the thermostat learns what you want, and automatically adjusts the temperature. Additionally, the Nest thermostat turns itself down when you’re not at home.
Kwikset Kevo Smart Lock
This smart lock looks like a plain, old-fashioned deadbolt lock from the 20th century.

As long as your smartphone is inside your pocket (or purse), you’ll be able to open your door with your fingertips. Moreover, you can also send “eKeys” to anyone with a compatible smartphone, and they’ll be able to get inside your house. In addition, this smart lock comes with a key fob… so it doesn’t matter if you lost your smartphone, you will still be able to open the door just by touching the lock.
These small (but powerful) security cameras offer stunning video quality (HD @ 720p), an incredible 130° field of view, sharp night vision, 8x digital zoom, and even a two-way talk feature.

Obviously, you can monitor your home from anywhere in the world, just download the app and stream safely with bank-level encryption. The manufacturer also offers secure online Cloud Video Recording. According to PC Mag, the Dropcam Pro is the best consumer-grade surveillance camera they’ve ever tested
