Are smart home devices worth it? They aren’t all a gimmick, believe us. If a smart device makes your life easier, simplifies certain activities and chores, and saves you more energy, money, and time with your loved ones, then we say it’s well worth it.
Here are five smart home devices in Singapore that we believe are worth your penny!
If you want a robust speaker that does pretty much everything else, then we recommend you look into the Sonos One. With Amazon Alexa built-in, you can play your favorite music, check the news, set alarms, and ask questions hands-free (look, ma, no hands!). The Sonos One, which comes in black and white, is compact enough to fit any space in your home. Get it for S$349 on Sonos Singapore.
iRobot Roomba 980
Save time for yourself and your loved ones by letting the iRobot Roomba i3+ do all the cleaning for you. This Wi-Fi-connected robot vacuum comes with an automatic dirt disposal, which allows it to empty itself for up to two months. Meanwhile, its floor tracking sensors mean the Roomba knows exactly where in your home it can clean and cannot reach. To start cleaning, simply use the iRobot app or your Google or Alexa voice assistant to power the robot vacuum up!
Ever wanted to turn on the lights using just your voice? That's possible with Philips Hue, which works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant when paired with a Google Nest or Amazon Echo device, allowing you to control one to multiple lights in your space.
The Bluetooth-enabled Philips Hue smart light bulbs also offer different shades of warm and cool white light to fit every mood and need, from bright for when you're working, to slightly dimmed and low nightlights for reading and sleeping. Get the Philips Hue on Lazada Singapore for S$39 for a white ambiance bulb and S$71 for a colour ambiance bulb.
Igloohome Smart Mortise 2+
The igloohome Mortise 2+ is a smart lock jam-packed with features so you never have to reach for a key ever again! With this smart lock, you'll never compromise your home's security again as it allows you to unlock your door with the use of your fingerprint. Its high-speed detection sensors will let you in inside your home within seconds, while its ability to generate one-time pins offline is convenient for when there's no Wi-Fi, plus an extra layer of protection against hackers.
The Mortise 2+ retails for S$719 on igloohome Singapore's online store and comes with free installation on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Midea Digital Rice Cooker
We Asians love our white rice and white rice cooked less than perfect is a no-no. While we love our moms' old-school way of cooking rice on the burner and our convenient electric rice cookers, this digital smart rice cooker from Midea takes cooking rice a level higher. This rice cooker comes with impressive features, such as smart temperature sensor controls, a multi-function cooking menu (rice, congee, porridge, brown rice, mixed cereal, and more), as well as a preset timer, to name a few, so you can prepare your rice in the cooker before bed and wake up to perfectly cooked white rice in the morning!
The Midea Digital Rice Cooker is on sale on Lazada Singapore for S$57!
