Give the gift of peace of mind.
Tech-savvy travelers who are constantly on the road will love these high-tech gadgets. After all, they make it possible for homes to take care of themselves. Smart home products are one of the top tech gift categories — a slice of the market that has expanded well beyond the voice-controlled speaker devices and smart thermostats (though we love those, too).
Today, the latest gadgets can feed your pets, water your lawn, monitor your property, and — of course — control the temperature while you’re out of town. They make it easier than ever for road warriors to stop fretting about the house or apartment.

Of course, the best smart home gifts can also be enjoyed while you’re, well, home. They help residents feel secure and comfortable, and they can also be quite a lot of fun.
That's why this gift list has a wide range of products, from the totally functional to the entertaining. And there are plenty that do both.
Even if you don’t think you can improve upon basic home necessities like door locks and vacuums, you’d be smart to reconsider. If nothing else, you (or the tech aficionado on your gift list) will be surprised just how much more self-sufficient homes can be.
