On our final day of gift recommendations, we’re featuring three smart home devices that most of the time pass the $200 mark.
- Smart Things Home Monitoring Kit For $249 (MSRP), you’ll get a hub, one smart outlet, a motion detector, and two sensors that can tell you if your windows or doors are open. Samsung’s starter kit is a great way to start building your smart home network.
- Neurio Intelligent Home Energy Monitor You may suspect that running your old wonky refrigerator is costing you way too much money; the Neurio($249 MSRP) will let you know for sure. It installs directly into your breaker panel and tracks your power use in real time.
- Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance Starter Kit For right around $200, the Hue Starter Kit lets you “paint” your room in millions of colors and set the mood for just about anything. Utilitarian tasks such as scheduling when your lights go on and off are covered, too.
