Let’s say it is winter. It’s actually the last day of Christmas, and you are coming back home after visiting some relatives. You are ready to celebrate the new year. At this moment, there is just a 2-hour drive between you and your living room couch. But what a bummer! You remember that your house is going to be so cold because the heating system is off.

This one can be a lifesaver sometimes! I mean, have you ever lost your keys when in a hurry? I did! and not just once. I did it too many times. And it is so annoying when this happens.
The good part is that now you can save yourself with this little gadget that I didn’t have at that time. The Tile Key Finder. It can assist you in quickly locating your keys, so no more headaches for you.
This small card can pinpoint exactly where your keys are in case you lose them using Bluetooth technology. All you have to do is press one button, and it will immediately start to ring, emitting a sound that can help during those desperate times when you lose your keys.
Even more, if you don’t want to go on a quest of following the sound all around your home, the Tile can provide you with a virtual map, and like this, you can just see where the lost item is located.
If you are the type that wants to know at any time what is happening at home when you’re away, well, I have good news: the Nest Cam is designed just for you! And also, what a nice name.

You probably already know about this one. It looks like a checkers piece, but it can clean your house like no other vacuum. And now, I don’t say that other professional vacuum cleaners are not good at cleaning your home, but there is a lot more work to do when you are using them. You have to take them out of your closet, plug them in, and then you have to vacuum every space you want to clean.
Well, you see, with the iRobot Roomba, there is no need for you to do all of that. “But wait!,” you might say, “I’ll have to charge it at some point, won’t I?” Nope. You don’t have to do that. This little robot is pretty smart. It has a charging station, and when the battery is running low, it goes there, charges itself, and then goes back to work.
You can also control it via your phone, create maps with predefined paths that you would like it to take when cleaning, and so much more. So, if you want to make vacuuming an easier job, the iRobot Roomba is here to help you.
