Discover the smart tech that’ll protect what matters while you’re on holiday.
A holiday is all about relaxing, leaving the day-to-day behind and enjoying yourself. All of that tranquil stuff becomes even easier with the help of the latest smart home technology. No matter where you are in the world, you can turn the lights on or off, nosey at who's knocking and keep an eye on the inside and outside of your house. Peace of mind is never far away this summer thanks to our top four bits of smart kit.
The lights are on...
...but nobody's home. Isn't that smart? And safe too. With the Philips Hue White E27 Starter kit, you get everything you need to control your home lighting remotely from your phone or tablet. You can also set a timer for each light in your system to come on when you choose - giving the impression that someone is at home. So, while you're sunning yourself, you can give your house some well-deserved light too.
...you already know who's there. You could be on the beach, up a mountain, in a caravan and thanks to the intelligent Ring Video Doorbell, you can see who's at your door from your phone. This clever bit of kit offers a Full HD 1080p stream to your device and also lets you listen to and talk back to whoever comes knocking. No more unwanted visitors or missed parcels.
...your house. Protect what matters with this Hive View smart camera. Watch the inside of your property live anytime, anywhere and with night vision too. Perfect if you're leaving your pets alone for a while and you can't help but check they're not chewing at your wires or scratching the sofa to bits. It records in HD so you can see every detail and it even has motion detection software that you can program to look out for people instead of animals. So you only see what you need to.
...and out. The Nest Cam IQ Outdoor Security camera is designed to withstand the elements and monitor the outside of your property. You can control and view what's going on from your phone or laptop, even in the evening, thanks to the handy night vision setting. Two-way audio makes it really simple to get in contact with any visitors and the 4K resolution means you'll never miss a single detail. Even if you just want to make yourself feel better by having a quick peek at how dull the weather is back home...
