29 September 2017

In the past, home technology hasn’t had very attractive designs. But smart homes and devices are becoming more integrated into everyday life, companies are developing technology that homeowners want to show off. Below is a selection of the sleekest home technologies currently on the market.

1) Point Home Security System

Most home security systems are cameras that are not the most attractive technologies to display. Point is a different kind of home security system -- it listens to the sounds of your home, senses the indoor environment and analyzes the air. It translates all this data information for the user and alerts them if it detects window breaking, alarms ringing and smoke through the app. Point connects to the WiFi and doesn’t need any attention other than changing its batteries every year. Point is palm-sized, so it is small discrete and not obvious like a security camera is.
