Did you know you can control the locks on your door with your smartphone? Yep! Never forget to lock the front door again!

Give visitors, housekeepers or the kids a virtual key! Pretty cool.
Kind of like Siri, this speaker is voice activate, can check the weather, control a number of smart home gadgets, read you audiobooks, and even purchase things online! Check out the Amazon Echo.
Centralize photos, music, movies, documents, surveillance footage and more using a tool like QNAP TS -x51. Consider this your own personal cloud that you can access from anywhere!
Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Detector
Yep, this too! This is a 2-in-1 device that will alert your smartphone when the alarm goes off. From the alert, you can call 911 or silence the alarm if your cooking set it off 🙂
