The one thing about electronics is that they’re always changing. Just as one innovation becomes popular, something even cooler sneaks up from behind and takes its place.
All those cool contraptions walk through the halls of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) first! Here are 5 of the coolest products featured at the 2016 CES.
We’re suckers for a good video camera. It all started with Ring’s video doorbell which allows you to communicate with anyone who arrives at your door, but they have taken their cool technology a step further with their new security camera.
This new device is battery operated and can be installed anywhere on the outside of your home in as little as 15 minutes. This isn’t all that innovative, but the new security camera includes the audio communication capabilities that you would expect from their doorbell camera. If you catch someone sneaking around your yard, you can speak to that person, no matter where you are. You can remind the kids to head inside to do homework or startle a burglar away by telling him to beat it.
- Binatone’s nursery system
There are some innovations for outdoor cameras at CES, but there were equally as impressive indoor innovations too. Setting up cameras in the nursery is nothing new, but Binatone takes nursery monitoring to a whole new level.
Not only can you keep tabs on your baby with live video monitoring on your smartphone, this nifty system comes with a dream machine to help lull baby to sleep. It even includes a scale so you can keep tabs on how quickly your little one is growing!
Video cameras outside and inside the home are fairly common, but some systems are choosing to use cameras in new ways. Vitrio uses camera systems to create a virtual reality experience for their customers.
Images and video can be transformed into a virtual tour that will allow you to inspect the interior of a house without leaving the comfort of your current home.
Tablets are more innovative than ever, and the iPad Pro and Microsoft’s Surface Pro are at the front of the pack, but that’s about to change. Instead of inserting yourself into the age-old debate of Apple over PC, you’ll soon be able to choose the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S instead.
It is razor thin and offers a large 12-inch screen, like you would expect from an iPad, but it also runs Windows 10, so you can use all of your normal computer programs on this portable tablet. The Samsung Galaxy TabPro S would be a wonderful investment if you’re looking to use a tablet to control your home alert system or a home automation system.
- Vtech’s wireless home monitoring system
There’s always a little more room on the market for a home monitoring system! Vtech offers all of the stuff you would expect, like indoor cameras, but they also offer some more innovative features.
You can turn on, off, and dim your lights from your smartphone. There is a baby monitor option, IP hub, and sensors that send alerts straight to your phone. It’s one of the most innovative systems when it comes to home monitoring.
