Want to brew your coffee, find your lost keys and change the room temperature without leaving the couch? Here’s how.
Here are 5 smart devices that can improve your home:
An elegant design by Swan Solutions, Knocki connects to your WiFi and designates certain knock types to operate smart devices. One knock to turn off your lights, two quick knocks to turn off your TV, or three slow knocks to turn down the bass on your sound system – all of these can be programmed for any smart device in your home, reducing time, and unifying your smart devices in the process. The hockey puck-sized device differentiates between knock patterns with its clever algorithm, eliminating any confusion between other devices. The simplistic gadget can attach to any surface or wall, and retails at $172.
A small keyring chain in the shape of a tile, this device can emit a loud alarm, alerting you as to where you have misplaced your keys (or any other object to which you have attached the Tile). The device works through either and Android or iOS app, has a year life battery and retails on Amazon for $33.
Spinn Coffee Brewer
Controlled entirely from your smartphone, the Spinn Coffee Brewer connects to WiFi and serves several different styles of coffee. The machine brews the coffee using centrifugal force technology to generate pressure, independently determines how much water to use, automatically grinds the beans, and alerts pre-selected stores when your supply is running low. The eight-person team behind the barista style innovation has raised $2.2 million in funding, and can be pre-ordered today.
