yale keyless connected

From £148.99, yalestore.co.uk WHERE TO USE IT Yale’s smart lock replaces your existing nightlatch and is suitable for wooden doors. WHAT IT DOES Rather than fiddle with a key upon entry of your home, you can unlock your front door simply by tapping in a pin code via the built-in touchscreen. Alternatively, you can use a key card or key tag to wirelessly scan your way in, or you can use a remote fob to do the deed from a distance – as you’re pulling up on your driveway, for instance. There’s no smartphone integration – instead you get a choice of adding on either a Yale or Z-Wave module to the lock, enabling you to connect it up to the Yale alarm system or Z-Wave-supported smart home hub (such as Samsung SmartThings).

hive active heating

From £179.99, hivehome.com WHERE TO USE IT In the room you spend the majority of your time – for most of us this is downstairs in the lounge. This way the Hive thermostat will control the heating according to where you are. WHAT IT DOES Hive’s smart thermostat keeps your home’s temperature exactly how you like it – just set it on the dial, or via the smartphone app, and your boiler will step in, ramping up the radiator heating to raise the level, and cutting it when it’s reached the desired temperature. A smart scheduler within the app saves you having to manually adjust the temperature; tell it how hot you’d like it, and at what time you want the temperature set at, and Hive will do the rest of the work. You…

foobot

From £169.99, logitech.com WHERE TO USE IT Any home, no matter whether you’re living in a busy city or in a country home in the middle of nowhere. It should be placed in a central location at about head height. WHAT IT DOES The air we breathe should be as clean as possible – the health benefits are pretty obvious – but according to the makers of Foobot, the air inside our homes is about five times as polluted as the air outside. What you can do about it? Foobot measures indoor air and alerts you to any anomalies, such as excessive humidity, or lots of toxins or particles in the air. When Foobot is blue, the air is good, when it’s orange something is wrong, enabling you to act – whether it’s simply…
