Smart Home Gift Ideas for Mom

The Hall Monitor
A connected security camera, video doorbell or smart lock can help mom to keep an eye on who is roaming her halls. Catch them in the act of leaving doors open (“Were you born in a barn!”), or going into off-limits rooms. (Especially important in this holiday season.) She can also peek in on the family for peace of mind when she has to stay late in the office or has an extended business trip.

The Caregiver
The caregiver role encompasses so much for both moms and dads. Parents are responsible for providing a safe and comfortable environment, nursing kids back to health and even looking in on their own aging parents. A smart home gift can help to lighten some of this load so they might even be to able to occasionally extend the same level of care to themselves.

Sensi™ Wi-Fi Thermostats make the perfect smart home gift that can help mom to keep her family comfortable at all times. She can set schedules for each day to account for tutoring sessions, sports practices and school holidays. Remote temperature control allows her to easily adjust the thermostat when someone says they are coming home early. It also makes an ideal gift for parents who are caring for their own parents. The Sensi mobile app makes it easy to check in to make sure the AC is on and working in the hot and humid summer temperatures. The added benefit of saving on utility bills can go a long way in lowering some of the financial stress that all parents face.

For the mom who is tired of fast food, a smart kitchen appliances like a Wi-Fi crock pot can adjust cooking times remotely if they are running late. New moms might appreciate a smart bottle holder that can monitor feeding habits, a Wi-Fi thermometer to take baby’s temperature without interrupting their sleep or even smart socks that can monitor infant heart rates.

The Entertainer
A helpful smart home gift like the Amazon Echo give moms a variety of options to respond to the dreaded, “I’m bored!” cries from youngsters. Alexa can play music, read bedtime stories, play games, tell knock-knock jokes and a host of other things to keep kids entertained.
