Smart home tech and gadgets are becoming more and more common in homes all over the world. What was once thought to be a joke has turned out to be very useful in everyday life.
From robot vacuums that can clean and polish your floors before you get home to lights that you can control individually from your phone. There are a lot of cool smart home goods that can be used for almost anything.
We’ve put together a list of the coolest smart home gadgets from 2023.
1. Govee RGBIC LED Permanent Outdoor Lights
Govee has everything you need to light up your home for the holidays, a special event, or to add some cool effects to your backyard party. These outdoor lights are rated IP67, which means they can work in temperatures from -4°F to 140°F and are waterproof.

By connecting these lights to the Govee Home app on your phone, you can control each light or the whole set of lights. Set times, make sets, and look at this beautiful set of lights in awe.
2. Googe Envisual TV Backlight T2
The Govee Envisual TV Backlight T2 comes in two sizes, 55-65 inches and 75-85 inches, to fit a wide range of TVs. Govee says that the T2 lighting is 40% more accurate because of the improved dual camera design. This is because the T1 made a few mistakes that were learned from.
But not only are the LED strips more exact, they also have twice as many light beads. Use the Govee Home app, Alexa, or Google Assistant to control your TV lights and feel more involved in your favorite TV show, movie, or game. You can also choose from four different modes to really get the party going.
3. Schlage Encode Smart Wi-Fi Deadbolt
Have you lost your keys too many times? Maybe your kids need to be able to get into your house when you’re not there after school. With the Wi-Fi built into the Schlage Encode Smart Wi-Fi Deadbolt, you can lock or open your door from anywhere. Also, you won’t have to give away your last set of keys if you have friends stay with you or a friend feeds your cat while you’re away.
This smart Wi-Fi lock lets you make up to 100 entry codes and keep track of them. The best part is that you don’t have to be good at DIY to put the lock in place. It’s easy to put together with a screwdriver and fits a wide range of doors.
4. Sonos Ray
The Sonos Ray is a soundbar that is very small and can be managed by your TV remote, the Sonos app, AirPlay 2, and other ways. It will fit perfectly under your TV and give you clear, balanced, and adaptable sound. No matter where you put the Sonos Ray, it will use Trueplay to adapt the sound to the way your room sounds.
The tool can be used to set up in a few seconds.
Then, you can connect it to almost any TV or computer for a truly immersive experience. You don’t want to spend more money on more speakers for your house. No worries! The Sonos Ray can be controlled by voice or an app to play music, radio, apps, and more over Wi-Fi.
5. The Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra
If you want the best robot cleaner, the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra is about as good as it gets. This type has all the bells and whistles because the Empty Wash Fill Dock is fully automated. Here, your robovac will empty its trash when it gets full, return to the dock after washing the floors when the water runs out, and fill up.
The Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra has a strong 5,100Pa pulling power and can move over different types of floors so that you don’t have to. You can use the companion app to handle the robovac, choose no-go zones, set cleaning times, and more. Also, you won’t have to clean up the house before this smart cleaner cleans because it can find things like pet waste, shoelaces, and wires.
6. Yeedi Vac 2 Pro
With its innovative rotating mop head, the Yeedi Vac 2 Pro does more than just vacuum your floors. It also cleans them. Just fill up the water tank and look at how clean your floors are. With the app, you can make more than one map of your home and tell Yeedi when to clean the places you choose. Also, it can dodge obstacles in 3D, so it won’t get stuck and won’t fall down the stairs.
With carpet recognition, this robot vacuum changes its power from 200 to 3000Pa so that all of your floors get the right amount of care. It works for up to 220 minutes on a single charge and is also great for pets. If you use it with the Yeedi self-emptying station, you won’t have to empty the dust bag very often. The best of automation.
7. All-New Echo Dot
The Echo Dot (5th Gen) Kids is one of the most cheap smart speakers out there. Curious kids can ask Alexa things like, “How far away is the sun?” It also has lots of fun features, like telling stories, playing music, and more. There are also a lot of podcasts, games, and Alexa skills that are good for kids.
Parents can also be in charge with this smart speaker. They can use the Amazon Parent Dashboard to set limits, review behavior, and make sure explicit songs are blocked. With friendly faces like the Owl and Dragon, it’s great for kids. Its 1.73-inch front-firing speaker gives it the same punchy sound as the Echo Dot (5th Gen).
8. Projector Samsung Freestyle
The Samsung Freestyle Projector is great for people who need an easy-to-use and flexible projector. It is only 104.2 x 172.8 x 95.2mm and weighs less than a pound. It can project images up to 100 inches wide on a flat surface and has a resolution of 1920×1080. And its LED lamp will last for a whopping 20,000 hours before it needs to be replaced.
If you don’t have an external speaker set up, 360-degree audio gives you basic music from the 5W speaker. But the real value comes from the fact that you can use SmartThings or AirPlay 2 to show your phone. You can watch your favorite shows and movies on a big screen anywhere, anytime.
9. Cosori Smart Dual-Blaze Air Fryer
The Cosori Dual Blaze Smart Air Fryer is surprisingly useful for something that looks like a joke. Because it holds 6.8 quarts, you can easily cook food for the whole family in one place. It has 12 features, and you can control it from a distance when you’re not there. For example, if you need to leave the house, you can check on how the food is cooking or ask Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant to do it for you.
You can cook healthy food faster than with a regular oven, and you can scan barcodes to find out what settings to use whenever you need to. You can also add a lot of different parts to it, so you can try out different recipes and ways to cook.
It is one of the best smart air fryers you can buy.
