Standalone Security Kits
Security is one of the smart home technology’s most dynamic sectors. Renters looking to beef up their apartment security have several security monitoring options that don’t require drilling or hardwiring. Canary and Piper NV provide plug-and-play home surveillance solutions unlikely to violate a lease agreement. If you’re tech-savvy, you can also build your own DIY smart home security system with iSmartAlarm or Simplisafe.
Interactive Pet Cameras
Do you ever wish you could communicate with your dog while you’re at work? If you’ve received complaints about barking or your dog has separation anxiety, keep tabs with a Furbo Dog Camera. This smart home gadget sends notifications to your phone when your dog barks. The camera-enabled device sends video footage to your phone, and allows you talk to your dog in return. If your dog obeys a command, you can instruct the Furbo to toss a treat. The pet camera holds hundreds of small dog treats.
Wireless Speaker Systems
It’s 2017. If you appreciate high-quality sound and aren’t yet enjoying it throughout your apartment, it might be time. Sonos‘ easy-to-install, immersive wireless speaker system lets you listen to anything from any speaker-equipped room in your apartment. Compatibility with Alexa means you never have to worry about manually controlling playback, volume, or power.
