It gives you a chance to discover new products, brands, and impress your loved ones with an extra special gift. 


Stuck on what to buy this year? Fear not, we have some smart home gift ideas that will truly wow your family and friends! 


Here are 7 of the best smart home gifts to buy this holiday season: 

 

Smart Home Gift #1: Notion Sensor Starter Kit  

Looking for a gift that keeps on giving? Then you may want to look into buying a Notion Sensor Starter Kit!


What’s great about Notion’s multifunctional sensors is that they can be used to monitor multiple things at once, from water leaks to temperature changes, smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, opening and closing doors, and more. 


Plus, with Notion’s handy smartphone app, if anything is detected, you’ll immediately receive a notification so you can take the appropriate action. 



Another benefit is that Notion’s sensors are super easy to install! All you have to do is download the app, plug in your Notion bridge, and peel-and-stick the sensors onto various surfaces in your property, like doors, cabinets, and near smoke alarms (here’s some inspiration for how you can use Notion).


Once you’re set-up, you can stay connected to your home no matter where you are. Give your friends and family the gift of peace of mind this year!

Smart Home Gift #3: Lenovo Smart Clock 

If you’re looking for a clock that does it all, the Lenovo Smart Clock might be exactly what you need! 


Not only does it come with a sleek design, but it’s great for multitasking – you can use it to manage all your home smart devices via Google Assistant. 


For example, you can use it to stream music and videos, display the weather, get updates on traffic, and so much more.



But one of the best features of the Lenovo Smart Clock is its wake-up alarm! It can be customized to trigger a combination of lights, sounds, and more so you can create the perfect wake-up routine. 


All in all, it’s a great device for on-the-go professionals and for families with busy schedules.

Smart Home Gift #4: Tapplock Lite 

This one is a gamechanger! 


Keeping tabs on combination codes and which keys belong to what locks can be a big hassle. Luckily, the Tapplock one+ has solved this problem by making a lock that requires neither – all it needs is your fingerprint! 


Using 7mm reinforced stainless steel shackles, strengthened with anti-shim and anti-pry technologies, it’s the ultimate utility fingerprint padlock.



Plus, it comes with one-year battery life per charge, so you don’t have to worry about charging it often. The Tapplock is also water and weatherproof, so it can easily be used both indoors and outdoors.

Smart Home Gift #5: iRobot Vacuums

The future of cleaning here thanks to the iRobot Roomba vacuum cleaner. 


Like other Roombas, the iRobot is a self-sufficient vacuum that sucks up dirt, dust, and any debris it might find on your floor. But because it’s also a smart device, it comes with a ton of extra features. 


For example, you can use the iRobot HOME App (or your voice assistant if it’s connected), to set daily or weekly cleaning schedules.



The iRobot will also “learn” your cleaning habits over time and suggest schedules to best meet your cleaning needs. 


Whoever you get this gift for will thank you over and over.

This can also be helpful when you’re away from home or on vacation as you can remotely control your lights and appliances from anywhere in the world, as long as you have a Wi-Fi connection.
