One easy way to begin automating your home is with the Wi-Fi enabled Wemo Insight Smart Plug by Belkin. Wemo recently introduced an app-enabled smart LED bulb that works with the Wemo smart plug with ZigBee connectivity. Using your existing network, the free Wemo app will synchronize your lights to turn on at sunset or activate “away mode” to randomly turn lights on and off, so it appears like someone is home — even when you're not.

Smart Home Monitoring

Today's connected security systems give you peace of mind while you're out and about. One of our favorite devices that enables you to monitor your house from almost anywhere is the Notion smart home monitoring system. Multipurpose sensors keep an eye on doors, windows, and safes, and you don't need to pay a monthly service charge. When trouble is afoot, it sends alerts right to your phone through its intuitive app. 

Setup takes about 15 minutes, and the best part is the Notion security system seamlessly integrates with our next must-have gadget: the Nest Learning Thermostat.

Learning Thermostat of the Future

A Nest Smart Thermostat is the first to earn ENERGY STAR certification, and yes — it saves money. This gadget automatically adjusts to your on-the-go lifestyle by keeping your indoor air quality from going stale or turning up the heat to prevent pipes from freezing in cold climates. If your furnace is acting up, the Nest alerts you so you can call an HVAC technician from wherever you roam.

Did you forget to switch on your HVAC system before you embarked? With other thermostats, you could be spending tons to heat or cool an empty home, but not with a smart thermostat. Program the system from your smart device, and get ready for a warm welcome when you let your thermostat know you're on your way home.

Play With Fido Anywhere 

Sometimes we have to leave our furry friends at home, but never worry again. With Petcube Bites' pet camera, you can check on your pet anytime, day or evening, with night vision and zoom technology. A handy treat dispenser lets him know he's missed, or program the gadget to work on an automatic schedule. 

Petcube's smartphone app lets you interact with your pets remotely with two-way audio. Sound and motion sensors capture video that you can review in real-time or later, once you've made it back to the hotel after a day of sightseeing. 

If you're a frequent traveler looking to have control over the house when touring about, these four clever home gadgets will make your time on the road a whole lot simpler.
