Best CES 2019 Smart Home Tech: 25 Awesome Gadgets



hey what's up this is Reid I'm here at CES 2019 there's been a lot of smart home devices announced I'm excited to go get my hands on them we're gonna be covering a lot of things so sit back and relax and let's go check it out I saw a smart block of wood at CES yes seriously it's a smart piece of wood that can control your smart home and some other things like Spotify it's basically a thin piece of wood covering an LED screen and it has a touchscreen touchwood I guess it has Google assistant and uses Wi-Fi and they were working on more integrations movie was on Kickstarter is now on IndieGoGo it costs $550 on IndieGoGo and after that it's going to cost a thousand dollars I know this device isn't for everyone but it does look awesome ringed or view camera was just announced and it's great for those with apartments or those looking for a temporary front porch solution it replaces your existing people but you can still look through it with no electronics needed and it can sense and notify you if someone's knocking and the camera is gonna cost $200 rings parent company Amazon also announced that the ring app can control select smart locks from quick set Schlage and Yale using the ring alarm hub there was also some new lights and sensors announced by ring at CES why scam just announced the max drive this will let you back up all your wise cam footage and any other files you have on a laptop or desktop hard drive you just plug it straight into the device your why's cam won't need an SD card and it can still have continuous video recording using the max drive there should be other new tech from wise camp throughout the year as they hinted at other low-cost gadgets they'll keep disrupting the smart home space next I visited nano leaf who has really unique smart lights you can connect their squares for nano leaf canvas or use our new hexagons so they have triangles squares and hexagons and they're gonna start running out of shapes UN's for their new devices these are touchable but they don't click they seem pretty responsive you touch them to term to brightness or you can play games on them and some other cool things about nano leaf is that you can form shapes into 3d designs of course you can play games and you can automate it they also set up a small room with mirrors and they set up the square canvas lights in there too and they call it the infinity room it was really cool and it was kind of trippy 'la metric had a similar tech with a metric sky which comes out later this year it isn't touch-enabled like nano leaf and it has the same functionality as their low metric clock but it's just bigger and can make some different shapes and after seeing the two I kind of like the nano leaf a little bit better Samson had some pretty awesome TVs that show off and some smart things updates yeah there was some pretty cool TVs on display at CES this year with LG's Robo TV and a lot of 8k TVs all over samsung has their nak TV it was pretty mesmerizing to look at the picture quality one of the TVs that really stood out was the wall him obviously it stood out it's an entire wall that's a TV it's 219 inches versus last year was only 146 inches and it's mind-blowing to see how tall and clear the screen is it uses micro LEDs squares they can piece together for different sizes smartthings has teased some cameras in the past but it says that they're gonna release them this year you can have multiple smart things cameras streaming on the TV at the same time they also have device called smart things of vision it's like a much better motion sensor because it can detect people versus animals and more and it covers smart things a lot in this channel so subscribe if you want to see more about this ultra smart lock is more than just a lock because there's a camera on it it uses Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and it has three days of free cloud storage included the camera has motion detection but all of these features are draining the battery right now the battery only lasts about a month but they believe with some software updates they can make it last about six months so I guess we'll see spero showed off some new tech that's different from their usual toys it's called the spectrums and these things are really cool little raised you can use them to scan different colors and turn them into tones you can touch any object and I'll play that sound on your phone making music out of like everyday objects super fun little toy CES 2019 was full of new doorbells everywhere I looked but here are a few of my favorites Maximus answer dual cam this doorbell has two cameras one pointing at the guests and the other pointing down for packages the top ones 1080p in the bottom camera is 720p but stitching them together the video is 1080p there's night vision on both of the cameras and a speaker that appears to be good quality and a hunter decibel siren that can go off using the speaker but you can expect to pay a subscription just like the other Maximus cameras the free plant only includes a two-hour look-back the Casa smart video doorbell has 2k resolution and HDR so it's footage is very clear you also get two days of free cloud storage but if you pay for the plan then it will add person detection First Alert came out the new doorbell and I don't really love the look but it has an interesting feature when it rings you can hear the chime and speak with guests on First Alert smoke detectors you can do this with nest hello using several Google homes so it's not groundbreaking or anything lastly an attack most smart video doorbell it checks a lot of the boxes hgr microsd card on the doorbell which I haven't really seen and it backs up to Dropbox or an FTP server it doesn't require hub so it works on Wi-Fi and it seems like the users will be a lot more control of their footage it also brings up the feet quickly and has low latency for the real-time view the smart doorbell has a 180 degree wide angle view and you can see the person's feet so I would think you can see packages pretty easily it also has an accelerometer on it so if someone's trying to steal it it will warn you about that one other thing it's very flexible on the voltage so you might not need to replace your transformer like you might with the nest hello whirlpool owns KitchenAid who announced their KitchenAid smart display it's a water-resistant Google assistant that's a tongue twister but one cool thing you can actually put this device in the sink and rinse it off the screen and speakers are that waterproof will cost about two hundred to three hundred dollars it's also compatible with the young Lea app to walk you through recipes whirlpool was also showing off a concept oven called a connected hub wall oven kind of a dumb name but it was very cool looking because the window to look into the oven was actually a touchscreen it helps you know how to cook your food using augmented reality it was just a concept but it was fun to see a glimpse into the future with technology like this besides their new doorbell First Alert also released a second gen version of they're safe and sound smoke and CO detector this version has a mesh Wi-Fi system and since its higher up on the ceiling it gives a better signal and this is typically found in like a business setting tp-link just announced some light strips and what's unique about these is that they can change the color and the brightness of sections of the light strip at the same time this is awesome because typically light strips can only change the color and the brightness of the entire light strip TP links light strips have a lot of different effects that you can do which don't exist on other light strips that I've seen the starter kit is 2 meters and you can extend it up to 10 meters which is 32 feet the light strip is also RGB W so you can do warm and cool whites Sanga announced a lot of new products but two things from San glad stood out first they're hunter watt a 19 LED bulb it's much brighter than your normal smart LED bulb at 1500 lumens ding that's bright like it's hurting my eyes bright it also has a vent on the light bulb to get rid of the heat the bulb is white and you can't change it to warm or white light and it cost $22 the second thing is new light strips you guys know how much I love light strips well these work with ZigBee and they offer more than 16 million colors but you can only change the light strip to one color at a time so tp-link has the advantage there and they're supposed to cost about $50 which seems a bit high for light strips from senglin the schlagen code is a new lock that uses Wi-Fi so no hub is needed it costs $250 and it works with the ring so you can control your lock from the ring like video feed the back is smaller than the slate connect and it's more quiet so know where that grinding the downside is shorter battery life due to Wi-Fi that still uses for double-a batteries it only lasts six months it supports Amazon key so you can receive packages in your home Amazon key will also be the current app for the Wi-Fi version until they develop their own Schlage app later the temmie is a personal robot that you can actually do things and is available now for $1,500 which is a little unusual at CES usually robots at CES are just cute and slightly creepy and they don't do anything temmie is going to be updated this year to have integration so it will be like an echo show on wheels there are sensors and cameras all over this thing to help it from running into stuff on the ground as well as tables the sound is very loud with a subwoofer at the bottom two mid-range speakers and two tweeters in the middle watch out DJ Roomba it can lock on to you and follow you around if you are doing a video call this would be really nice it did feel a bit strange having this robot follow me around but it was pretty awesome at the same time for all the things they can do honeywell released a new thermostat called the t9 it's compatible with their new sensors to track humidity and temperature in other areas of your home these have a lot better functionality than the nest temperature sensors overall the sensors use two triple A batteries so no annoying little coin battery or anything multiple sensors can be used at the same time to create an average temperature in the house similar to eco be you I had a really colorful light for the kitchen it has a white light on the bottom and a colorful LED light on top this thing come a because it looks so cool I've used he light strips in my kitchen I've liked him so far d-bots just came out with the Osmo 960 it's a vacuum with a camera on the front to prevent it from running into small things on the ground like shoes or cables maybe this will solve the problem of your dog pooping in your house and your robot vacuum spreading it everywhere and don't worry the camera footage won't be stored in the cloud besides the camera it has many of the same features as the Osmo 930 including mapping and built-in month basically helps you become more lazy America Arlo came out with their Arlo ultra resilient which is a fork a wireless camera with a 180 degree viewing angle in a spotlight the batteries have been slightly changed it'll be interesting to see how the battery life is on these cameras the magnetic mount is much more flexible on the Arlo ultra and it's still easy to install with one screw for more details on the Arlo ultra check out our comparison with our Lowepro here the ultra will work with existing base stations but the new hub that they're calling the Arlo Smart Hub will be the center of their new security system the security system will be available the second half of 2019 and it'll be compatible with z-wave and ZigBee devices Arlo will also have their own multi sensor siren and remote another thing recently announced is that the cameras are finally gonna get home cam Griffin is a mesh Wi-Fi router with parent aisle controls an additional network protection the network protection is free for a year but it does cost $10 a month after however the parent hope controls will still be free it does all this while keeping your up and download speeds extremely fast three gigabits per second it helps since it's all built into the router and it's not an extra accessory Griffin is already on Amazon and there's a discount code right here for 15% off Koehler who last year these guys had a smart toilet so I knew had to stop by again in 2019 this year is all about lighting fancy lights in the bathroom lights under the tub and lights in the tub come on Cole are you're out of control these cabinets also have motion sensor under them so that it can frost the glass when you put your foot underneath it really cool but let's be honest completely unnecessary well that about does it for the CES smart home roundup I'll be reviewing a lot of these devices this year so if you like this video subscribe to the channel to see more smart home reviews in the future thanks for watching we'll see you again next time next time on Spartan solver how many Bigsby speakers does it take to answer a question

    I'm interested in anything that DOESN'T need the Internet — these insidious products that insist upon stealing your phone location and the device location and your router and ISP location … all so you can … turn off a light switch …. and if the Internet goes out, the switch doesn't work till it can take all the data it steals and relay out to the vendor servers …

    All RING CAMERAS gonna charge you a monthly fee for storage your own video camera, if you see have to pay is not fair, just you can see video alert in real time but if happens and you not attendant in the moment, no video alert gonna save for see later ( if not pay to cloud ring storage video 100.00+ at year ). That I same they wanna make money from you ( you pay electricity, Internet, maintenance, and more ) that is insane. Not buy that kind of camera make sure before buy THANKS..
