*This is a collaborative post

A smart home is a perfect place to live. With all of the technology at your fingertips, you can get anything done. You've got a washing machine that tells you when it's done with its cycle, so you don't have to worry about checking on it throughout the day.

Your fridge sends you notifications when something needs replacing. And your lights tell you what time it is - just in case there are no clocks around! If this sounds like heaven to you, then read on for some gadgets that will make living in a smart home even better!

Water Softeners 
Smart water softeners are typically equipped with sensors that monitor the hardness of your house's water supply. The smart water softener also has a built-in Wi-Fi or cellular connectivity so it can send usage data and reports to you over the Internet, allowing you to control it from anywhere in the world with a web browser on any device, including PC's, smartphones or tablets.

What can an intelligent water softener do for you? Well, they allow you to manage it from anywhere in the world with an internet connection, and most of them are compatible with mobile devices as well, so you can control your home's appliances when on holiday without needing to pay expensive service fees for someone else to turn off your water softener.

What makes an excellent smart water softener? The best way to determine which one you need is by looking at how much water your home uses in detail rather than just the flat rate that most companies charge. If the usage is high, you need larger water softeners and vice versa. Then, look into each of these features carefully so that you can choose what works best for your needs and budget.

Smart Locks
Another smart device you should think about purchasing is a good lock. It doesn't make sense to control your lights, thermostat and garage if someone can pick up their key from under your mat or around the house somewhere.

The best smart locks allow you to control access for family members, guests and service professionals. Some will even notify your phone when someone enters the home or request additional credentials from an existing key holder if they are trying to get in with their key.

There's no limit to what lock options are available for anyone looking into upgrading their existing lock to a more innovative model. You can either get one that replaces your entire deadbolt or attaches on top of it.

Google Nest
Google Nest is a great smart home device to consider if you are interested in learning more about google assistant. This would be especially helpful for those of you who already have other devices that work with the google assistant, such as an android phone or tablet.

What makes it stand out from some of the other similar products is its ability to be used in various conditions. This product is excellent for those who live in colder climates, known to work correctly even when the temperature drops below 32 degrees.

Many smart devices on the market can make your home more efficient and comfortable, so it's essential to do some research before you pick one. You should also take into consideration the cost of installation, brand reputation and warranty.
