Smart Home Devices
For Alexa & Google


Wi-fi Smart Home Devices will change your life.


Google and Alexa Smart Speakers make an excellent "hub" or "command center" for a modern automated home.

Most of the Smart household devices listed below can be controlled hands-free, or by just voice commands. And some can even be controlled remotely, through a smartphone app.

Except for the TV streaming devices, Chromecast & Firestick*, ALL the following recommended devices can be used with either the Alexa Echo or the Google Home Speakers.

These would totally equip your place and transform it into the home of the future... today!

Google Home
Alexa Echo

* You cannot control Firestick with Google Home, or Chromecast with Alexa Echo. Silly of them both, isn't it?



These are specific Smart Home Devices we recommend to hook up to your Network.
