We’re not quite sure how it happened, but it’s somehow November and we are somehow less than 2 months away from Christmas! If you’re on the late-present-buying train like us, there’s nothing more you crave now than a solid, organized gift guide to settle all your holiday errands – so there you have it!
Kicking it off with the big guns! There’s absolutely no escaping Smart Home hubs nowadays, and Amazon’s Echo Dot is no exception. Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device that uses Alexa to play music, control smart home devices, make calls and basically do everything for you, without you even having to get off the couch. For just US$49.99, you can get started on your Smart Home adventure or give the gift of the hassle-free life to someone you love!
(Bonus: Alexa is integrated with Ambi Climate!)
Made for pet owners who also tend to have very busy schedules, the PetNet SmartFeeder is an automatic pet feeder that will help you easily schedule food portions for those late evenings at work. Enter the pet’s age, weight and activity level, and the app guides you to healthy portions personalized for your pet – you can also track your pet’s habits and see when they’ve eaten! A perfect solution for people who are always out and about, PetNet is integrated with Alexa and Nest Cam, and you can take the best care of your little furry friends; now, it’s even at a special price – perfect for a holiday gift!
We never tire of looking for smart gadgets to help new parents – they can use all they help possible! CloudTot allows parents to easily and quickly track baby’s movement, breathing, nursery temperature, bed wetness and noise level. It will alert you when bub isn’t moving and will even give him a nudge if no breathing is detected, and will also quickly let you know when that smelly diaper needs changing! While this is only available for pre-order (for Spring 2018), it can be a great gift for expecting parents – so if you or anyone you know is due soon, you know where to go.
Seems like we can never get quite the perfect temperature for our coffee – it’s either so hot it burns off our tongue, or not hot enough which takes out all the fun of drinking it. Ember is a smart mug that maintains your constant preferred temperature for up to two hours on the go, or all day long when used with its accompanying charging coaster. Coffee in the perfect temperature? Sign us up! There’s also an app, so you can set your desired heat and wait till it’s ready. Any coffee-lover would appreciate this gem.
If you sleep with a snorer, or a snorer yourself, the ultimate gift you could bag this holiday season is Nora. A simple, smart anti-snore gadget, Nora doesn’t have any tubes, cables or weird things you need to put on your face; a little pebble and a pillow-insert you use with your favorite pillow – that’s all there is to it! When the pebble hears you snore, it activates the insert to slowly and gently move the pillow, without waking you up; the small movement then allows you to breathe better and voila, bye bye snores!
Don’t you ever wish someone made you stop a bad habit or helped you reach your goals?A new year is the perfect excuse to learn new habits! The kSafe was developed based on research published by scientists at MIT, Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, and Yale. They discovered that pre-commitment can significantly increase our chances of achieving our goals. Basically, kSafe provides containers of different sizes, where you can place items and lock them using a timer – anything from snacks, to cigarettes, to your cellphone – and the box will only unlock once the timer is done! The kSafe comes in different sizes, and you can now get 20% off for buying 2 of them. Spend less time on your phone and more time with your family this holiday season – maybe even eat less chocolate. Sounds like a win!
Last but not least, who wouldn’t want the gift of comfort this holiday season? Compatible with over 1,200 air conditioner with LCD-screen remotes (wall-mounted, portable, window or heat pump), Ambi Climate is a small IoT device, here to help you solve the common air conditioning issues we all know too well. By connecting to your air conditioner and learning from your feedback, the unique A.I. engine, Machine Learning capabilities and smart sensors will work their magic to match your needs and adjust to what you deem comfortable. Bonus? Your home stays in tip-top shape, without overcooling or overheating and you can save up to 30% on electricity! Comfort is a click away – get started now.
