Is Your Southern Maryland Home Smarter Than You? It Could Be

Have you ever bought everything you need for a week’s worth of recipes — and then forgotten which meals you wanted to make?

If you owned an LG InstaView ThinQ Refrigerator, it would’ve reminded you. This smart fridge was just one of the many home tech creations on view at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Some of the others we found intriguing include: 

Tetra Dishwasher

Described as “a compact, connected dishwasher with 10-minute, half-gallon cycles,” the Tetra is also downright gorgeous.

While we predict it will be popular with those with tiny kitchens, the fact that it requires no plumbing (water is poured in manually) “and can be placed and used anywhere with a standard electrical outlet,” may put it in-demand for even the owner of a full-size kitchen with a small family.

See Tetra at work at myheatworks.com.

Smart plumbing fixtures

You’ve seen smart plumbing fixtures in public restrooms for years: Toilets that flush automatically and faucets that stream water as soon as a hand is placed beneath them.

Now that same tech idea is available for your Southern Maryland home, only better. How many times has the cooking goo you want to get off your hands ended up on the faucet’s handle? With voice-sensing fixtures, it’s now hands-free and oh, so clean.

Check out Delta’s Wi-Fi-connected and Alexa-powered Touch2O smart faucet.

Brilliant home security

Deep Sentinel is revolutionizing home security by pairing “Artificial Intelligence with human intervention.” It starts by establishing a security perimeter around your home and then the smart cameras, motion sensors, extra loud siren, two-way speakers, and “AI processing hub” all work together to defend it.

Rolling out this winter, Deep Sentinel’s equipment package is selling now for $299 (the early bird special, otherwise plan on spending $399) and the Monthly Surveillance Subscription is priced at $49.99. Learn more about how to purchase the system here.

Check the weather while you shave

The stuff of sci-fi movies just a few years ago, now Alexa and Google Assistant have been added to mirrors, smoke alarms, and more.

Bathroom and kitchen product giant Kohler Co. introduced the Verdera Voice-Lighted Mirror, with Alexa built in. Use your voice to control the lighting, check the traffic while you shave, or apply your makeup in the morning without putting up with the clutter of a TV or radio on the bathroom counter.

The next Consumer Electronics Show happens in January, so we’ll keep you posted on what’s new and exciting in smart home technology.
