1) Tado Smart Thermostat
Tado has blossomed into the most versatile smart heating system you can buy right now. Alone, the Smart Thermostat remains a good buy, giving you geofencing and a polished app with weather detection, smart scheduling and compatibility with Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple HomeKit and IFTTT. But if you want to embrace the real benefits of smart heating, Tado also gives you the option of zonal control from its Smart Radiator Thermostats. While this can be a pricey initial outlay, it pays you back in heating savings and the ability to talk to your radiators.
2) Netatmo Welcome
Want to keep an eye on your smart pad while you’re away? The Netatmo Welcome offers an abundance of features and storage options over its competition, while remaining incredibly easy to use. Setup is an absolute breeze, while bonus features, such as face recognition, alarm detection and Apple Watch support, make the Welcome feel far more advanced than its security cam rivals.
3) Netgear Arlo Pro
This little white camera is weatherproof, wireless and battery-powered, records in 720p HD and comes with seven days of rolling video stored in the cloud for free. It’s also super easy to set up and has a really robust Wi-Fi connection. It’s not as smart as some rivals, but geofencing is easy to set up and there’s IFTTT integration, too — all of which helps to make it one of the favorite all-round security cameras.
