We all know the real point of New Year’s Resolutions is having something to break early on in the year.  Oh, you were going to join the gym and become more active?  Didn’t think so.  Cuddle up on your couch and let these 5 connected devices take care of your home for you.

1. Amazon Echo

To kick this list off right, we have to mention Amazon Echo. I’m sure you have heard a lot of buzz surrounding the smart home device, as it was one of the top gifts this past holiday season.

Retailing at $179.99, the echo is the main command hub for many on-the-market connected devices, offering a variety of different applications and devices to connect to it.

All you have to do is prompt it by saying “Alexa,” and your wish becomes its command. It can do anything, from playing your favorite Spotify playlist to ordering you a Domino’s Pizza.

2. iHome Smart Plug

There are many “smart” plugs on the market today, but we believe iHome has them all beaten.

As a Smart Plug, it allows you to connect devices –such as lamps, fans or humidifiers– and control them remotely whether you’re home or not.

The best part of the iHome Smart Plug? No specific hub is required. It runs purely through wifi, and by using an app on your phone, you control the connected devices.

3. Ecobee3 with Sensor

It’s winter time right now, and the weather is definitely a little cold. Wouldn’t it be nice if your thermostat adjusted perfectly for you?

Well, with Ecobee3, a million different data points are collected to adjust the temperature of your house, so you can feel comfortable in no time.

It senses when you are at home and when you are away–creepy, I know helping to save people around 23% of their energy bill each year.

You can even use some of that saved money to order a pizza through your Amazon Echo.

4. it Bed by Sleepnumber

You have probably seen many commercials about this bed, and at Seamgen, we felt it was vital to include it in this list.  After all, people do spend one third of their lives sleeping.

The it Bed by Sleepnumber allows you to use your mobile device to adjust the comfort level on your side of the bed. All the couples out there with different sleeping preferences need to snatch this one up.  Studies show it leads to a fuller night sleep because of its high degree of personalization.
