Amazon offers for the smart home: from the video camera to the home automation system

If you want to enter the world of home automation from the main door, Amazon offers you an interesting opportunity to start using the Internet of Things to save money, monitor your home and automate many of the most repetitive operations you do every day in your home.

Within the opportunities that are divided into offers valid for a full day or for a limited time we find many of the devices that we have talked about in recent months on Macitynet: these are tested systems and able to speak through their API or the IP protocol with all the most complete home automation systems and with web applications that make IOT objects and gateways interact for the home.

We want to point out the ones that seem most interesting to us

The cameras

First of all, the surveillance cameras: D-Link is the owner, which has an endless range of models and can satisfy any budget or quality request.

There are also economic models of Tp-Link and other brands with versatile and powerful products such as Motorola, Koenig

Also interesting are the MyFox cameras that combine security and privacy with their particular flap that closes when you are at home.

For those who want a complete and autonomous system there are interesting offers on Avidsen systems with two or more cameras and a DVR for management.

Thermostats and tools for thermal well-being

The French Netatmo is the owner, a very active company in the IOT world with its thermostat and its weather station, but the German tado not least with its products that offer remote control and the combination with geofencing of multiple users to the first place for ease of use and energy saving but there are some interesting offers also for Honeywell accessories such as the single thermostatic valves that we tried at the time on Macitynet. Check before purchasing if the connections supplied are compatible with your radiator.

Wireless home automation kit

In the field of complete home automation systems there is an interesting novelty for the Italian market and the arrival also in our country of the systems of the French Hauppage. It is an oem product of excellent quality from a well-known Taiwanese supplier with a Z-wave Plus gateway (which we have already tried in recent months) which has been combined with the software created by Zipato with great ability to integrate, through scripts, even peripherals based on IP protocol, programming almost entirely in Italian and the accessories, also sold individually in the offers of these days (such as the 4 in 1 sensor) are at the maximum of ease and inclusion capacity also in other Z-wave systems.
