The Most Beautiful New Products for Your Smart Home

Monitor your kids, optimize your Wi-Fi and help set the mood without sacrificing style.

 

As design-forward as “smart” technology may seem, most of today’s new gadgets leave something to be desired when it comes to design. They’re made of white or black plastic and tend to look out of place when placed in the home.

The best smart home products today have roots in modern design while leveraging premium materials that typically belong in the home. It’s no longer enough to provide the best performance and highest specifications. simplified controls, elegant UX, and an aesthetic that aligns with the home are the new standard for the best tech products of today. From Halo’s use of precious metals and natural materials to Google’s router that can be disguised as home decor, the best smart products are now some of the best-looking.
