5 Unusual Smart Gadgets: The Main Devices That Will Make Your Life Easier
Perhaps everyone is familiar with smart watches and devices for creating a smart home. But in the family of smart gadgets there are a lot of other interesting things! They can greatly simplify life or at least make it more comfortable.
Have you ever tried to find your keys, being late for work, but in the meantime they were lying quietly in your pocket? If so, you just need a tracker tag. For example, such as Samsung SmartTag. This small keychain, only 39 × 39 mm, can be attached to a variety of objects: keys, passport cover, case for wireless headphones, put in a purse or suitcase. That way you’ll always know where things are by the beep. The tag connects with your smartphone via Bluetooth, and the range is 120 meters. But even if the tracker is out of that range, you can find it by geo-tagging it in the SmartThings Find app. You can also integrate the tag into a smart lighting system and, for example, use it to turn on lights in your apartment when you just open the door, so you don’t have to scour the wall looking for a light switch. By the way, the battery lasts up to 11 months.
Portable Coffee Machine
During work, it’s sometimes necessary to take a coffee break, play at TonyBet, chat via Facebook, or talk to your colleagues. But sometimes there is no time to get up from the table, let alone go to the kitchen or a coffee shop. In this case, they invented a portable coffee machine. It even fits in the bottle pocket of your backpack, but it can still make you a great cup of espresso. You can use coffee pods or ground coffee – it comes with two different nozzles and filters. It also has a battery powered gadget that heats your water, so you don’t even need to put the kettle on – just fill the water tank with water beforehand. And don’t forget to take your coffee. But if you have boiling water on hand, we advise you to use it so that the battery lasts longer on a single charge.
With a lock, you can easily hide important documents, personal diary, cash – just about anything. Lock your drawer, jewelry box, mailbox or Hogwarts secret room with a padlock and let them reveal their secrets only to you. The thing is that the gadget has a built-in fingerprint scanner, so you can be sure that no one else will open the lock. Unless you give it to them yourself: this model can store up to 20 users. This is convenient, for example, in the office, if several people should have access to confidential documents. The lock responds to a touch quickly – for about 0.2 seconds. And you can place your finger wherever you like – with 360° recognition. The battery has enough power for 2000 unlocks, and a light indicator will tell you that the device is about to run down. The lock itself is made of steel, and it is not so easy to break it.
While you sleep, it works. The tiny device, weighing 15 grams, is attached to the corner of the pillowcase and watches you while you sleep. Not literally, of course. The Sleepace Sleep Dot monitors your sleep movements and breathing rhythm and collects information about the phases and duration of your sleep based on this. You can see all of this in the morning in an app on your smartphone. In addition, it can sing lullabies and work as an alarm clock. In the evening Sleep Dot will lull you with specially selected music, and in the morning it will wake you up at the most suitable phase within the right time interval. You won’t oversleep, and you won’t get up with a heavy head, as it happens with conventional alarm clocks. And the app will not only show you the statistics but also give you recommendations on how to improve the quality of your sleep.
Pet Tracker With GPS
We already talked about pet trackers, but losing your pet is much scarier than having a suitcase at the airport. Even if you’re a responsible pet owner and don’t let your pet run free, anything can happen: your pet might freak out at the noise and get off leash or run away from a loose carrier. To find your pet as quickly as possible, use the dog tracker. It attaches to your collar or harness and transmits GPS and GLONASS coordinates. What’s more, you can hear through a built-in speaker what’s going on around your pet, and through a microphone you can talk to him and try to calm him down or call him to you. In the dark, use the built-in backlight, so you’ll see your pet that’s crouched under the car or hidden in the bushes. And if someone else finds your pet, they’ll be able to press the SOS button and contact you – be sure to write that on the collar tag.
