Technology is constantly evolving, changing the world we live and work in each day. Recent advancements have done more than just make remote work a new norm; they make everyday household tasks and daily routines easier than ever. Here are a few of the coolest smart home gadgets we can’t live without.

iRobot Roomba j7+ Self-Emptying Robot Vacuum ($799.99, shop here)

The Roomba and other robotic vacuums have been around for a while, but this model is even smarter than its ancestors! Not only can the Roomba j7+ detect objects and edges and clean on a schedule, but it can now also empty its own bin! Another perk? This model was made with pets in mind. Past editions would run through pet messes and drag them through the house (yikes). The Roomba now comes with an avoidance mechanism and a P.O.O.P. (Pet Owner Official Promise), meaning you get a free replacement if it occurs.

LG Electronics InstaView Door-in-Door Smart Refrigerator ($3,399, shop here)

This fancy fridge lets you know what’s inside without wasting energy. A glass panel hides the contents until you knock twice, activating the light and revealing your favorite drinks and snacks. It also features a water dispenser, door coolers, and print-proof stainless steel. Of course, this smart fridge connects to a mobile app and smart home devices like Amazon Alexa. That means you can get alerts when filters go bad. You can even tell the ice machine to make extra ice while you’re at the office.

Furbo Dog Camera ($169, shop here)

This smart home gadget is for pet parents everywhere! It features an HD camera with night vision that lets you check in on your furbaby from anywhere via your phone or computer. It also has fun functionality like bark detection, two-way audio, and a treat tossing mechanism. And it’s all controlled by a mobile app.

Hatch Restore Smart Sleep Assistant ($129.99, shop here)

A good night’s sleep is closer than you think with the Hatch Restore Smart Sleep Assistant. It serves as your sound machine, sunrise alarm, smart light, meditation app, and alarm clock. Curated channels of dreamscapes, guided rest exercises, and sleep stories will help you wind down mentally as the sunset lamp signals to your body that it’s bedtime. In the morning, the alarm clock functionality pairs with the sunrise lamp to wake you up gradually and soothingly (in contrast to the harsh blaring of a traditional alarm). The Restore pairs with a Hatch Sleep Membership, letting you create custom routines compatible with your circadian rhythms.
