Here is a list of the ultimate Smart Home Gifts Guide for Christmas 2017! We have tried to find a gift for every budget from Sonos to Bluetooth tracker Tile. Let’s us know if you missed off your top tip for Christmas 2017.
Enjoy our smart home gifts list below!
Philips Hue White Starter Kit
Philips Hue is the ultimate Smart Lightning solution. One of the reasons we love it as a Christmas gift is it can be added to any home as the bulbs fit into standard fittings.
The starter kit contains all the lucky receiver needs to jump into the world of hue; the hub, 3 colour changing bulbs and a dimmer switch. Another reason its a great gift is they can add to the setup as slowly or as quickly as they like, also great for future presents.Ring Video Doorbell 2
We know what you are thinking – a doorbell as a present?! This is not just a doorbell it’s a video doorbell, one we are big fans off. It allows the owner to ‘answer’ the door via the App from where ever they are and communicate via 2-way audio. Pretty cool! We recommend Ring 2 – this is the latest model and has some big improvements on their earlier version for example video quality and changeable battery.Sonos One
Sonos is the market leader in whole home audio, winning multiple awards for quality and innovation. This is their latest player and can be fully voice controlled via an integrated Alexa! Sonos supports all the streaming services you have heard of, as well as many you have never heard of! Perfect gift for any music lover.Tile Pro
The perfect present for someone who always loose things – Tile Pro the Bluetooth tracker. Tile released their new Tile Pro range this year, the new Tile Pro has an impressive range of over 60 meters, is waterproof and works with Alexa! If you buy a twin pack it works out cheaper and means you can track your wallet as well as keys. It comes in two designs, Tile Pro Style (shown above in gold) or the more rugged Tile Pro Sport – the only difference is the sport is slightly thicker.
Amazon Echo Dot 2nd Generation
Voice assistants have been huge this year, the clear winner we think is Amazon Alexa. She interacts with a vast amount of Smart Home tech, like Philips Hue. Her default functionality is useful and allows you to set reminders, set alarms as well as ask questions, for example ‘What time is Sainsburys open today’. On top of this you can install Alexa Skills for almost anything, even recommending a beer to go with your meal!
Furbo Dog Camera
No gift list would be complete without something for a furry friend or furry friends owner. Furbo is awesome, it’s a two-way audio and video camera, with iPhone / android app of course. The difference with Furbo is it allows you to throw treats from the app. Although designed with dogs in mind we are sure cats would appreciate it too.Smarter iKettle (3rd Generation)
The ultimate gift for any tea drinker, iKettle is the app controlled kettle – allowing you to boil it from anywhere. The iKettle 3rd generation just came out and boasts IFTTT and Alexa integration. “Alexa make me a cup of tea”. Google Wifi
This is a geeky gift but one a true geek will really appreciate. Google Wifi is a new mesh solution, creating a fast and powerful home wifi network. Super simple to setup and has great features like family controls for limiting wifi and priority for ensuring the film your streaming doesn’t start to stutter.
