Homes are easier than ever to manage. All you need is a smartphone and tips on the latest tech. Here are a few gadgets to simplify your homelife and streamline your busy routine.

Ember Temperature-controlled Mug

Set this 10-ounce smart mug to precise drinking temperatures for hot beverages, track caffeine consumption and save preset temps, all from a smartphone app. It’ll maintain the chosen heat for 1.5 hours, or all day with its charging coaster. A customizable LED indicator shows if the beverage is ready to drink. Pick one up at Chandler’s Best Buy.

Ring Video Doorbell 2

This wireless video doorbell alerts homeowners via phones or tablets when visitors trigger the built-in motion sensors or ring the doorbell. No matter where residents are, they can see and talk with people at their door or monitor their property via HD video. Ring has several options on the market. Some have a quick-release battery pack, but others need hardwiring. Some features require a subscription. Available at Walmart.

The Schlage Smart Lock

Schlage offers several keyless locks with an illuminated touchscreen that are compatible with Apple HomeKit, Alexa, Google Assistant or Ring. While options vary, they provide keyless access and when connected to the home’s WiFi, the locks can be locked and unlocked remotely. Find them at Home Depot.
