1. Emberlight

The days of switching off the lights and having to go to bed in total darkness are over, thanks to Emberlight. It is an invention that allows you to control every light around the house from your phone. You do not have to move from your seat or bed to switch off the lights. Instead, you touch an icon on your phone and the lights go off.

Emberlight technology also allows the bulbs to switch on and off when you are within proximity. Once the bulbs sense your presence or the phone, they will come on. The bulbs switch off once you exit the area. It ensures that bulbs will only be on when you are around, so that you do not have to manually switch the lights on and off.

Emberlight technology is available as an initial installation or an upgrade to the existing system. It also allows you to add an Emberlight component to the bulb holder.

The bulbs are also developed with this technology. You do not need to buy expensive systems to install this new technology. It is eco-friendly, will reduce your utility bill, and makes you feel as though you are living in the future.

How healthy is your interior? Is mould growing somewhere in the corner? Is there a break-in or is your home exposed to fire hazards? Point Alarm is the latest gadget to help you detect these problems in advance. It comes with an alarm system that will send an alert to your phone immediately after the gadget detects a problem.

Point Alarm comes with an accompanying app. It uses highly sensitive environmental sensors to detect problems around the house. You do not have to be around to receive the alert. It also does not require a camera or advanced security systems.

The alarm system does not depend on contact. In case of a break-in, the alarm senses unwarranted movement. You will receive a notification from the app about the suspected breach in your house.

Point Alarm's motion sensors activate other features on the alarm system, including a microphone and camera. These features help you to nab the intruder in the act.

The gadget also offers personal health monitoring capability. The feature targets the elderly and people with disabilities. They can call for help with the touch of a button because the app is integrated with local emergency healthcare providers.

Point Alarm is a comprehensive personal and health security network. It offers an emergency response through a pendant worn on the neck or arm. Anyone can press the button to alert the emergency response team about the existing situation. The Point Alarm and app are a technological revolution in the property and personal security sectors.

3. Homey

The gadget allows you to talk to your home. It gives you a home that is at your beck and call. How does Homey work? It connects all your favourite appliances and lets you control them using your voice.

Homey ensures that you do not leave your couch unless necessary. For instance, you do not have to stretch to reach a remote somewhere under a sofa. Speak to Homey and the channel will change.

Homey also connects to home appliances such as the oven. You place your food long before you need it. You can use Homey to control the setting on your oven to heat the food to your preferred temperature. You only need to leave the couch when your food is ready. Homey confirms your order before execution to avoid ambiguity.
