From smart to sleek to artistically inclined, the products on the following three lists are sure to make any home sparkle and shine – and some of these great gifts might even help save on energy bills too!
For Home Techies: The “Smart” Gift Guide
If you or your gift recipient loves the latest in high-tech gadgets for the home, these four gifts are sure to be a hit.
- Google Home Hub. Google’s latest gadget brings its popular home assistant to a 7-inch screen. Now you can instantly monitor the status of all of your connected smart devices in one place. And if you’re hosting a holiday family feast this year, you can even play a how-to cooking video from YouTube. The Google Home Hub is compatible with over 5,000 smart devices so your home will be truly connected.
- Carrier® Côr® Wi-Fi® Thermostat. Who doesn’t want to save a little money over the holidays? This ENERGY STAR® certified thermostat is designed to help save on utility bills by keeping close tabs on your home’s temperature settings. It can even sense humidity. Plus, take your home’s temperature even while you’re away via remote access through the internet and iOS, or Android™ apps on your smartphone or tablet.
- Kwikset® Electronic Door Locks. Why is this the best time of year to go keyless? Because Kwikset electronic locks feature a battery-operated keypad or touchscreen that allows homeowners to assign temporary codes (think of all those visiting relatives) that you can later delete when they’re no longer needed. These locks fit on any standard size door and you’ll even have your choice of finish, including brass, satin nickel, chrome, bronze and iron.
- SunPower® Equinox™ Home Solar System. A solar power system is always the smart choice but SunPower goes one step further by offering a complete system, from panels to energy monitoring software. Now that’s a smart way to save energy and help save on utility bills too. Check out SunPower’s Equinox system for the most up-to-date way to make the switch to solar power.
