Connected devices are the new house rulers of 2015 Gen devices.
They control every corner of our spaces, from our lights and wireless network to our front door and room temperatures. They crack down on security, and they change the way we interact with our home, too. And by and large, it’s all controlled via smartphone.
That makes the smart home lifestyle accessible to virtually everyone. Buying someone a smart-home gift isn’t that risky territory anymore, and there’s lots to choose from. Whether the person on your list has already bought into the connected home, or is just starting to “smarten” their lifestyle, we’ve got all the best (Internet of) Things for this holiday season.

August Smart Lock
With the August Smart Lock, you can turn your smartphone into a virtual key. Use your phone to lock and unlock your door and create keys for guests by granting access during specific times. The August app also has a 24/7 activity log that keeps track of who’s entering and exiting your house. The app is compatible with Android and iOS as well as your Apple Watch. It’s compatible with Apple HomeKit, too.
