David Novak, The Gadget Guy

In case there was any doubt, we’re living in the golden age of the smart home, with new technologies developing daily. We’ve gone from relying on corded phones to tiny computers in our pockets. And with these technologies, our homes become smarter, offering us the ultimate comfort with a simple press of a button or voice command. Here are the latest Smart Home devices you'll start seeing in stores... 

NO TRESPASSINGThe Ring Outdoor Floodlight Cam is one of the most complete outdoor home video security systems on the market. Its motion-activated camera and floodlights are App-Controlled, which sends instant alerts to your smartphone when it detects motion. It's also smart, distinguishing between a prowling thug and a blowing leaf...even in the dark.  An added 110-decibel security siren will seal the deal, scaring the hell out of a would-be thief. $250.

“OPEN SESAME” If you're always at work but need to let a babysitter, pet-sitter, or grocery delivery person inside your home, consider getting the Gimdow Retrofit Smart Lock. This sturdy smart lock is Bluetooth enabled, requires no drilling or screws to install, allows you to control it via your smartphone, and keeps a log of all entries and exits at a glance. $100.

EASY ON THE WALLET The well-renowned Google Nest Learning Thermostat just came out with a 3rd Gen, and features better Auto Learning, Smart Remote Scheduling, Auto-Away Mode, Voice Assistant Support and now, Energy Saving Mode, which manages the temperature to help you lower your energy consumption. $250

"FREEZE PUNK!" Smart Leak Detectors alert homeowners about any bursts or leaks, letting them take action early on. The SimpleSENCE WiFi Leak Detector features a small size and comes with wrap-around water sensors, allowing for optimal placement in leak-prone areas. Its temperature sensor will alert your smartphone when freezing weather approaches, and it doesn’t need a separate network hub. $70

RISE AND SHINE Imagine a smart gadget that always brings sunlight into your home. The Powershades Smart Window Shades are PoE-enabled smart window shades that are designed with the environment in mind. These can be controlled and powered by a single low voltage ethernet cable that transmits both power and data to automate opening and closing. Smart homes and business owners can customize the smart shades and even integrate them with their favorite Voice Assistant. $2,000+
