The Top 5 Smart Home Gadgets from CES 2018

Keeping this thing in mind, we have picked up top 5 smart home gadgets appeared in CES 2018.

1) The Wall TV by Samsung

Samsung The Wall TV

This new and innovative approach to TV upholds one essential Principle Samsung as a tech brand is known for. Samsung brought this Wall TV with the idea of coming with a truly modular TV. Wall TV is basically a display that can be extended as per the size of the wall. This is a 146-inch TV which is truly modular as it can be scaled down as per the size of the wall.

According to Samsung, it works like a multipurpose display to deliver a screen area as per your need or the size of the wall. If this modular display capability is one thing that makes this TV praiseworthy, the real competitive edge also lies in producing sharper and crisp visuals rich with deeper black tones. The MicroLED technology also delivers a truly infinite level of contrast.

2) Lenovo Smart Display

Lenovo in the CES 2018 has come up with a smart display which is capable of delivering all smart home assistant features along with robust audiovisual experience. This smart display is powered by Google Assistant. It is slimmer and more appealing than Amazon Echo Show.

Smart Display is nothing but a voice-activated computer which can display a plethora of supplementary information. For example, if you ask Google for recommending some continental restaurants you will be guided with the same restaurants located nearby. It can play YouTube videos what Amazon’s device cannot.

The Verdera® Voice Lighted Mirror powered by Amazon Alexa is the first-of-its-kind bathroom mirror. While it offers all the functionalities of an Amazon Echo to deliver a plethora of relevant information and can perform all sorts of activities like shopping, getting traffic updates, playing music, it does all these being embedded only with a seemingly beautiful mirror.

The Verdera mirror can be considered as the key product in the KOHLER Konnect lineup of smart products. Besides offering an array of smart features it also allows controlling and interacting with other products in the lineup just through voice. As for the lighted mirror at the front, it comes with an inbuilt voice-controlled dimmable LED light that allows adjusting on a broader scale of luminosity as per your need.
