TP-Link Wi-Fi Smart Plug
Ever left the light turned on downstairs but were too tired to make the trip to turn it off? TP-Link’s Wi-Fi Smart Plug lets you control any device connected to it – a kettle, a lamp, a fish tank too – from an app on your smartphone. You can also schedule connected devices to turn on and off at certain times. There’s another handy feature called the ‘Away’ mode where you can keep your home safe by setting connected lights to turn on and off on a schedule – so it seems you’re at home, while you’re actually away! Compatible with iOS and Android, this simple device is an excellent addition to your smart home in Dubai.

INLIFE Wake-up Light SMART Alarm Clock
You’ll thank us for this one. Hate being woken up by the jarring noise of an alarm clock? You’ll want to switch to this smart device alternative. The INLIFE wake-up light alarm clock – also called sunrise clocks – mimics sunlight. The clock will start to emit light 20 to 40 minutes before your scheduled wake-up time. The light will increase in intensity over time, so you’ll wake up by the light rather than a blaring alarm. Instead of stumbling out of bed, you’ll be brought out gently from a deep sleep. Cool, right? These sunrise clocks are multi-functional, so you can use them mood lights, atmosphere light or night lamps. There’s also a traditional alarm function with an FM radio and snooze button too! We’re loving these handy smart home products in Dubai.

Digital Photo Frame
We live in the age of selfies and photos – so it’s definitely worth investing in a digital photo frame. With this smart home device in Dubai, you can have all your favourite photos in one place and configure them to display in a slideshow! It’s a perfect way to keep your memories at hand – and show them to friends and family. Most digital photo frames support audio and video, too, so you can relive those precious moments. With their sleek and minimalistic design, this device will add a stylish note to your Dubai smart home.

Have you tried to grow your own plants and failed? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. Say hello to the Click and Grow Smart Garden, that does (nearly) all your work for you! This device will take care of your plants automatically, making sure it has nutrients, light and water all the time. It has a modular, extendable lamp arm and a water tank that you have to refill, but that’s all the work you have to do! There are three steps to getting started: insert the capsules (you get three complimentary basil capsules on purchase), fill up the water tank, and plug the device in. Worried about your electric bill? The Smart Garden is energy efficient, with an LED lighting system that only consumes 8W of power. You can also grow tomatoes, peppers, various flowers and so much more. Best of all, it’s got an edgy design, which will fit perfectly in your Dubai smart home.

Our last pick for smart home devices in Dubai is for those who don’t mind indulging a little. Samsung’s ‘The Frame’ TV will add a stylish and smart edge to your home.

There’s an extensive collection of curated artworks to select from Samsung’s Art Store – so when you’re not watching, the TV is a piece of art.
