Mother’s Day is right around the corner! It’s that time of year to buy something special for the wonderful women in your life; whether it’s your mom, your mother-in-law, or your grandma.
Now, we know how frustrating finding that perfect gift can be with the endless searches, price comparisons, and the hassle of decision-making. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the best smart home gift ideas for every super-mom in your life.
Whether you want a gift that gives your mom extra security, a device that keeps her home at a comfortable temperature, or something that will play music for her whenever she wants, our gift guide has you covered.
1. Smart Doorbells
One of the greatest advantages a smart doorbell can have is the added security and privacy that it gives users. At any given moment, a user can view the outside of their porch from anywhere in the world and speak to whoever is outside without opening the door. A popular Smart Doorbell that makes for a great gift for mom is the Ring Doorbell.
Some of the features that Ring has are the following:
- Built-in motion sensors
- Instant alerts
- Ability to see, hear, and speak to guests from phone or tablet anywhere
- Infrared night vision and weather-resistant
Users can also sign up for the Ring Protection Plan for just $3 a month. This allows the device to save videos for homeowners to review later or share with their neighbors. Available in different models and designs, Ring doorbells can help Mom keep her home safer this Mother’s Day.
2. Smart Thermostats
A Smart Thermostat makes any mother’s life a lot easier. Rather than constantly going to the thermostat to change the temperature, a smart thermostat will give her full control of the house temperature at all times from anywhere.
The Nest Thermostat is a popular choice among techies and casual users. With its refined and round design and useful features, Nest can be an additional benefit to a mother’s house.
Some of its features include controlling room temperature remotely, connections to various other Nest products and systems like Google Assistant and Alexa, and its simplicity for those always on-the-go. You can change the temperature manually, by voice commands using Google or Alexa devices, or use its corresponding app.
The Ecobee4 has a number of features that make it easier to use. For instance, it uses remote sensors that can keep an entire house as cool and comfortable as a mother would want. You can also set up specific temperature schedules that activate when you’re at home, leave your house, or go on vacation.
You can change up your preferred temperature schedules by either setting up the console or the app. On top of this, it also comes with a built-in Alexa and is compatible with other smart home devices, such as Google Home and Apple Homekit.
3. Smart Speakers
Smart speakers can make for a perfect Mother’s Day gift. And it’s easy to see why. Whether you want to set up an appointment, play music, or ask about the weather, smart speakers have the ability to help ease anyone’s daily tasks and chores.
Google’s contribution to the growing list of existing smart speakers has a number of advantages. For one, it’s design is simple and unobtrusive, making it perfect to set on a kitchen counter or a table—it will never look out of place. It’s also pretty affordable, considering its various useful features.
Powered with Google Assistant, users can ask Google Home to make calls, create appointments, play songs, and much more.
Like Google Home and its Google Assistant, Amazon Echo can perform similar tasks like report the weather and play music through a voice assistant called Alexa.
Available in various different colors and equipped with powerful built-in speakers, Amazon Echo can prove to be a wonderful smart home companion for any mother.
4.Smart Security Cameras
Consider buying Mom a home security camera this Mother’s Day. It will not only keep the house protected from potential outside threats, it may also help Mom feel a sense of security around her home. There are two security cameras that we recommend: Nest and Ring.
Nest Indoor/Outdoor Cams
Nest cameras offer a clear view of the house at all times, even when users are away. It comes with 24/7 live streaming, facial recognition and alerts with Nest Aware, and an app for all Nest products.
With a Nest Aware subscription, users can also record 24/7 and save videos for up to 30 days in the cloud.
Ring Indoor/Outdoor Cams
Like Nest, Ring offers increasing home security at all times and wherever you need it. Through its connection to Alexa, you can receive announcements on your Echo devices whenever motion is detected.
With an Echo Show or Spot, you can see, hear and speak to anyone on camera. Ring cameras also come in different models, including spotlight, floodlight, and stick up. You can apply The Ring Protection Plan with security cameras as well.
