3 smart home devices that will upgrade your life in 2016

2016 is an incredibly exciting year in smart home technology.  Devices that make our lives more convenient just keep getting better and better AND easier to use (a BIG bonus for those of us that lack in tech proficiency).  I’ve been doing some smart living research and found 3 new devices that I want to share with you.

1. The Samsung Family Hub Smart Refrigerator

This is the most advanced refrigerator yet.  Here is what The International Business Times says about it:

… the Family Hub refrigerator, which features a 21in display on the door to tell you everything that’s going on inside. With a camera on the inside of the fridge you can check in on what you’ve got inside from anywhere, anytime via a Samsung mobile.

The fridge will also inform owners when food is about to go off by sending alerts to your mobile. As well as what’s going on inside the display can also be used to inform owners about the traffic on their daily commute, family members can ping messages and reminders to the screen, you can mirror TV and movies from Samsung televisions (series 6400 upwards), you can use it to find recipes, control your home audio and also order more groceries online. The Family Hub fridge has not been given a release date yet, but rumour has it that it comes with a price tag of $5,000 (£3,420).

Essentially, this fridge acts as an administrative sous chef.  While it is a bit pricey and it hasn’t even hit the market yet, I would venture to say that this is the future of refrigerators.  As our world becomes more connected and technology driven, appliances like this will become increasingly common place.  So for those of you who love modern day conveniences, this is a win!


2. The KIBA Home Camera – World’s First Automated Home Video Maker

Do you feel pressure to capture precious moments with your family?  But then feel like you missed out on the moment because you were participating behind your camera?  Then this device is for you.  According to KIBA’s website, it:

Automatically capture only priceless moments, rejecting 90% of unwanted motion with Kiba’s Joy Ranking Algorithm. You’ll never miss the perfect shot again.

If you don’t believe what you are reading, watch this video:

In a culture as social media driven as ours, this technology will really simplify creating videos to share with your family and friends.

3. Netatmo Presence Security Camera

This outdoor security camera automatically detects people, animals, and cars.  Though we all wish securing our homes and families wasn’t a necessity in today’s world, it is, and this device just made that process a lot easier.  According to Netatmo:

Each home is unique. With Presence you receive customized notifications that match your needs.


Smart home technology continues to break new ground.  With everything from smart home refrigerators to security cameras to high tech weather devices that help maximize our comfort, this technology is sure to change our culture as we know it.

Incorporating the appropriate smart home technology into your space has the potential to greatly enhance your life.
