Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have your own robot butler to give you a hand with household chores? Well, you can’t buy one on Amazon just yet, but there are many other smart home devices available to help you automate mundane tasks. Some of them even work with Alexa, which means that you can control them with your voice. In this article, we feature five such devices, covering everything from lighting to security to temperature control.

Philips Hue

The Philips Hue lightbulbs are a great way how you can enhance your home with soft white lighting that you can control remotely from everywhere. The kit we’ve selected contains two Philips Hue White A19 60W Energy Star Certified LED Smart bulbs, both of which fit the standard lightbulb socket.

To install the Philips Hue lightbulbs, all you have to do is screw them into your desired lightbulb socket, download the Hue mobile app for Android or iOS, and connect the included Philips Hue Bridge to your Wi-Fi router. From there, it’s a matter of going through a simple setup wizard in the Philips Hue app.

If you fall in love with smart lighting, you can expand your Philips Hue system with the Hue Dimmer Switch, Hue Tap, Hue Motion Sensor, or many other accessories. The Philips Hue Bridge can handle up to 50 Hue lights without slowing your Wi-Fi network, and it comes with a 3-year warrantee.

Arlo Q

Your home is your castle, and it makes sense to use modern smart technology to defend it against intruders. The Arlo Q is a Full HD security camera with night vision, 2-way audio, 130-degree field of view, and the ability to continuously record video footage and store it in the cloud.

You can watch the recorded footage using the free iOS, Android, and Fire OS app. Thanks to the app, you can receive instant push notifications when the camera detects motion or noise and talk using the built-in microphone and speaker.

You can watch live video streams from up to 5 Arlo Q cameras at the same time, which means that you can have a complete overview of what’s going on inside and outside your home at a glance. To save money, consider getting the pack of three Arlo Q cameras instead of buying them individually.

Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller

The Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller lets you take control of your water, allowing to easily adjust your sprinklers at any time. This smart sprinkler controller knows when it rains, so it always waters your lawn just the right amount for it to thrive, and not a single drop more.

No special tools are required to install the Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller, and the companion app makes it very easy to create schedules and customize the timing and frequency of watering to your specific landscape.

If you have a variety of different plants, you can create multiple different watering zones and let the Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller automatically optimize watering based on the soil type in your area. Rachio has first-class customer support, and you can content it even on weekends.

Nest Learning Thermostat

The Nest Learning Thermostat is a great way how you can significantly reduce your energy bill and adjust the temperature in your home from anywhere. Using highly accurate sensors and proprietary algorithms, the thermostat learns your daily patterns and adjusts the temperature accordingly, keeping your home colder when no one’s around.

According to Nest, most people can install the Nest Learning Thermostat in around 30 minutes, and there’s a 24/7 customer support channel available to help you with any installation or setup issues you may run into.

The Nest Learning Thermostat has been proven to save on average 10-12 percent on heating bills and 15 percent on cooling bills, according to a number of independent studies, making it one of the most cost-effective smart home devices that you can buy.

Haiku L by Big Ass Fans

Big Ass Fans is known for reinventing the ceiling fan’s century-old design, and the company is now entering the smart home market with their Haiku L ceiling fan. Even though every Haiku L includes a simple slim line remote for one-touch fan control, you probably won’t need it because you can control your fan with simple voice commands using Amazon Echo. For example, you can say, “Alexa, turn on my fan,” to turn the fan on.

Apart from being smart, the Haiku L by Big Ass Fans is also cleverly designed. Its slim profile hides an exceptionally efficient DC motor that uses permanent magnet technology to deliver wobble-free performance. The fan has an integrated LED light that produces twice as much light as a conventional 40-watt incandescent bulb despite using about half the energy.
