Amazon Echo – 2017 Version (Price = $99.99)
As a voice-activated smart speaker, the Amazon Echo has been one of the more popular devices on the market over the past year or so. It offers all the same Smart features as the original Amazon Echo, but with a much refreshed look. The new look of the Amazon Echo is a bit shorter and comes in various designs. Options include: sandstone (light), charcoal (dark) or heather (in between). As with its predecessor, this is an excellent option for music lovers! For a full review, visit this link.
D-Link Wi-Fi Water Sensor (Price $98.00)
The D-Link Wi-Fi Water Sensor is a unique Smart device that helps detect water leaks as well as flooding in your home. The device itself operates by using a cable with long, twisting leads implanted in it. For illustration purposes, you would run the cable along the outside of your basement floor and, if water makes contact with the cable, an alarm will go off letting you know that there has been a detected leak/flood. If you live in an area where flooding is a semi-common occurrence, this would be a great option at a reasonable price! For a full review, visit this link.
