JBL Link View

1.       JBL Link View - Smart Display Speaker with Google Assistant

Price: $225

Features: Google Assistant | Legendary JBL sound | 8-inch high-definition touch screen | 5MP Front Facing Camera | Privacy Switch | Splash Proof | Chromecast built-in | Wireless Bluetooth Streaming | 1 Year Warranty

  • Vivid, high-definition screen for videos, images and browsing
  • Great, loud sound quality and strong-bass
  • Beautiful, sleek, non-invasive design
  • In-built Chromecast and Google Home

First, in case you don’t have one already, at the centre of your smart home you should have a smart assistant. There are lots to choose from, but we highly recommend the JBL Link View for a number of reasons. Whether you have a Google Assistant at home already or not, this would be a fantastic product to add to your home.

Not only does it have a Chromecast built into it, so you can stream videos, music or images from your devices to the JBL, but it also has a Google Home servicing you as the smart assistant. Google Home has a very large library of apps it can be used with. More and more keep getting added every day. So a good 95% of all smart home apps and devices are compatible with Google Home, more than likely you’ll be able to utilize any smart home devices you get with the in-built Google Home feature. Not only is it good for compatibility between apps, but if you’re like me and like listening to music while working around the house, you’ll want to listen on something that has fantastic sound quality and mind-blowing bass. Look no further than the JBL Link View.

Tp-Link LB130

  1. TP-Link LB130 Smart Wi-Fi LED Bulb - Multicolour

Price: $79

Features: No Hub Required | Manage Remotely | Multi-colour daylight (9000k) | Voice Control with smart assistants | Circadian Mode | Save Energy | Compatible with Android, iOS and Amazon Alexa | 3-year warranty

  • Easy setup and easy to connect to a smart assistant
  • Voice control the lights once connecting them to your home assistant or via the app
  • Compatible with Google Home, Apple HomeKit and Amazon Alexa
  • Great value and reduce energy usage by 80%
  • Easy schedule setup
  • Fits both screw or bayonet light fitting

If you don’t have smart lights already, I don’t know what you’re waiting for. While it may seem like it’s something that will make you lazier at home, but it’s actually quite efficient. You can schedule when the light bulb(s) turn on and off at your home so that you never have to touch the light switch again. When I get home and I’m sitting in my lounge room, I know it starts getting dark around 7:05 pm, however, I’ve scheduled my lights to turn on at that exact minute and I’ve also have it scheduled to turn off around my bedtime, which is a super handy feature!

You can customize the lights, to be warm, white, dim, coloured (I like purple), whatever you desire. When I’m watching a movie, I like to turn off my lights when I have all my snacks and drinks ready to go, in which I just say “Hey Google, turn off the lights in the living room” and I’m ready to start enjoying my movie. The TP-Link LB130 is a powerful and reliable bulb, extremely bright and a fantastic addition to your home.

Home security has never been easier with wire-free cameras and Arlo are some of the best-of-the-best within that range. Their small and sleek design makes them look great anywhere you mount them.

Yes, that’s right, you can place these outside as they’re weatherproof cameras, so they’ll be protected from dust, rain, snowfall, almost any weather condition.

They boast 4K Image quality with high dynamic range (HDR) providing you with unmatched picture detail, so you can even zoom in on the smallest of objects.

Viomi V2 Pro Vacuum Cleaner Robot

  1. Viomi V2 Pro Vacuum Cleaner Robot

  Viomi v2 Pro robot

Price: $399

Features: Laser Navigation | Mopping Master | 3 Working Modes | Mi Home App Remote Control | 2100Pa Suction | Automatic Recharge | Breakpoint Continuous Sweep | 20mm Obstacles Climbing Capability | 2-year warranty

  • Long battery life
  • Can automatically recharge
  • Easy to schedule
  • Can be controlled directly from your app or smart assistant
  • Intelligent navigation allows it to learn better routes

Who wants to vacuum after a long day of work or on your weekend break? Probably no one, but it’s something that’s got to be done to keep your house looking tidy. Well, we can eliminate that chore now with robot vacuums, our pick is the Viomi V2 Pro Vacuum Cleaner Robot. Fantastic for those busy people and even better for people like me (lazy). I’m not home most of the day so my dog loves to run amuck, shedding everywhere occasionally when he goes for a walk, comes back a bit muddy on my tiles.

This is why I love my robot. I set it up to clean twice a day, one round of vacuuming my carpets and one round of mopping my tiles, so I always come back home to a cleaner floor than how I left it. When I get home I simply empty it out (not daily) and set it back on its charging dock (where it automatically goes back to when it’s done cleaning), so I never have to remember to keep it charged. It also has laser navigation that adapts to your environment, improving the way it cleans every time it goes out to the scheduled route you’ve set, it can also do its own clean without having to set a course for it, which it will adapt over time to give you the most efficient and effective, clean it possibly can. If you’re looking for a vacuum robot that’s not going to break your bank, we highly recommend taking a look at the Viomi V2 Pro Vacuum Cleaner Robot.
