What should we smart to build a house: a selection of inexpensive accessories Source:

To Make your home "smarter" — perhaps the dream of almost every second geek, and for good reason. It is very convenient, when to change the temperature in the apartment can be from the same iPhone, to view on a smartphone information about air quality and humidity in the house, as well as receive alerts from motion sensors. One of the best centralized solutions for this introduced by Apple and called it HomeKit, but there are other solutions.

A Complete system of "smart home" can cost several hundred thousand rubles — this will include electric blinds, intelligent door lock, coffee maker, which itself will be included as soon as you open your eyes — in General, the option is not cheap. Unlike HomeKit that this technology allows to acquire like expensive accessories, and quite a budget of sensors, able to satisfy most user needs.

In Russia such devices, unfortunately, not very much, and if they do, the stores are often "cheat" to the price almost doubled. In addition, many gadgets with support for HomeKit have no notifications and if you want to order them from another country, there is a risk that the cherished device "wrapped" in custom back (lucky if you do not make to pay a fine). We have searched and found that devices with notifications actually a lot, and most of them works with HomeKit.

Let's Start with an easy one. Here's you can install near the front door so you always know who is in your apartment. Once the sensor will notice suspicious activity, he will immediately send a push notification to the iPhone, and to disconnect his attackers will not be able because it works on batteries. It should be fun for about $ 50.

A Little more expensive can be rented from the same company. This device is placed anywhere in the house or apartment and is used to measure air quality, temperature and humidity in the house. There's even a function of the identification of harmful substances, so it is a kind of home weather station. Special attention is given to the integration with Siri, where you can find all the information from the sensor.

Another popular manufacturer of sensors is a company Tado. For example, you can install one that supports the set value due to battery and air conditioning. The list of supported air conditioning is very large, and the battery is sufficient to install a special thermostat.

You can Control the lighting by using a special smart bulbs, which are produced by many manufacturers (but not all have the notification), . Several modes of lighting, full control with your iPhone — about the switches you can forget. Conveniently, for example, if you go on vacation and want to create the appearance of human presence in the apartment.

Well, quite the turn out of the apartment, the fortress will help — it can be mounted on the door and the window. With its help, you can maximum control of areas that can be exploited by attackers to penetrate into the house.

Another arrangement of the «smart» home offers Xiaomi company (especially true for owners of Android devices as they don't support HomeKit). It is believed that such devices it is better to order in China, but in fact with the Chinese versions can be lots of problems — for example, the manufacturer likes to block device with the new firmware. The U.S. implemented the international versions of Xiaomi gadgets, that is, they are adapted for foreign markets.

In this case, the control devices are not using the built-in iOS apps «Home», and with the help of third-party program Mi Home available for all platforms. So, for example, you can get that don't just weigh you, but also report health indicators like body fat percentage, and conveniently aggregate the received data in a mobile application.

Xiaomi also Offers smart bulb (like Elgato), only releasing them under the sub-brand YEELIGHT. This will cost less than $ 50, but it can be controlled directly from an Android smartphone (or iPhone), then there is a variety of lighting modes. Plus a stylish accessory that will complement the interior of any home.

And cleaning will help . It can be programmed to clean at any time, to view the route of the vacuum cleaner and even to teach him the arrangement of furniture in the apartment. HEPA filters and other useful gadgets — complete.

These and many other devices for smart homes you can order Amazon.com really most of the shops do not deliver the goods to Russia, while the price of many items is very attractive. To help in this case comes along that gives you a us address and he engaged in careful sending parcels to Russia.

An Important advantage of the "feel content" — if, for example, to order multiple gadgets from different shops, you can ask the staff to combine all stock in one package, so shipping was cheaper. And for maximum convenience, provided , when experts themselves are buying the product's taxes and escort you throughout the purchase.

Register «mail-order»

Shipping usually takes no more than two weeks, after which you will be able to make your home "smarter" by using new sensors. And since notifications on new devices appear every day, soon available to send to Russia devices will become much more.
