The Coolest “Smart Home” Products

In this advanced age, it’s a miracle that we don’t all have houses that talk to us, cook for us, and generate our shopping lists. Slowly but surely, we’re making our way toward a completely “Smart Home” and these products are some of the coolest available. Enjoy!

Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator

Calling this refrigerator “smart” is almost an understatement. Here’s some of what it can do:

  • Every time the doors close, it takes a picture of what’s inside so there’s no more going to the store and wondering what you need. Just pull it up on your phone!
  • You might not need to go to the store at all anymore because this fridge has apps with which you can order groceries!
  • Use the huge screen to leave notes and keep track of the family’s calendar
  • Stream music through the built-in speakers

As you might have guessed,┬áit’s also quite good at keeping food cold.

Nest Learning Thermostat

This smart thermostat connects to an app on your smart phone that allows you to control everything about your home’s heating and cooling remotely. But it doesn’t stop there, it’s smart enough to learn your patterns and heat and cool your home accordingly. Check out the video below for additional videos!


Having a more connected home not only makes you feel like a bona fide techie, it also saves energy and saves money and makes your home more secure! There’s no need to cool your home to 72 degrees while your at work all day and there’s no reason to buy a vat of salsa when you’ve already got some. Smart thermostats and refrigerators alleviate all these issues, and smart locks and doorbells keep your home safe from unwanted intruders.
