The Future of Home Automation is here and now. If you’re dreaming of robot vacuums, automatic blinds, self cleaning pet robots and home security, then look no further. The team at SWAGGER rounded up our favourite items that will get your “futuristic” home automation started.
ILIFE HOME A10 Mop
ILIFE A10 Mop is a laser navigation vacuuming and mopping robot. It navigates and maps your home accurately with intelligent laser scanning, analyzes the floor condition in real-time, adapts to any floor changes, and optimizes the cleaning path. And the SLAM algorithm ensures high coverage and cleaning effectiveness.
Users have full access to the robot’s functions anytime, anywhere by the ILIFEHOME App. You can set up custom maps, custom area, carpet area, To-Go zone, No-Go zone, etc. Designate areas you need to clean and areas to avoid, and the robot will guide itself according to your custom map.
The powerful 2000Pa strong suction and self-adjusting 2-in-1 roller brush provide the deepest clean. And the automatic detection of carpet and MAX mode activation ensures maximum dust and hair pickups.
A10’s auto-recharge function ensures the robot will return to the charging dock, and self-recharge to 100% when the battery runs lower than 10%, and then continue cleaning from the breakpoint. It’s a good ideal for large houses (2150 sqft or more).

Wyze Cam v3
This is the one, folks. The do-everything, one-cam-to-rule-them-all home security camera with Wyze’s customary too-good-to-be-true price tag. Wyze Labs, for the uninitiated, is the company that shook the home security camera industry back in 2017 with the release of the original twenty dollar Wyze Cam (back when similarly featured cameras went for over a hundred bucks). They refined their design somewhat with the v2 a year later, but v3 became the do-it-all gold standard. They took all the smart features of the first two Wyze Cams and added higher horsepower processing and full color night vision that has to be seen to be believed. Plus, even though Wyze Cam v3 isn’t marketed specifically as an outdoor camera, it’s got just as good an outdoor rating as most outdoor cameras on the market. There are photos in the Wyze Reddit community from people running these things inside a pile of ice and snow.
Creating your own smart home often begins with the camera—the literal eyes and ears of your system. It sees and hears people, pets, and other events, then triggers your other smart devices accordingly. Wyze Cam v3 sports a broad array of cutting-edge features and then combines them with Wyze Labs’ heavy emphasis on smart device integration and an ever-evolving AI. And all of that is before you get to the price tag. It’s the perfect way to start your smart home automation.Buy now
Wyze Home Monitoring (Home Security System)
It was only natural that a home security system would make our list. Security companies, in many ways, were the original smart home automators. With their array of door and window sensors, cameras, and motion detectors, plus automated emergency service notifications, security systems are a natural starting place in smart home automation. They’re also complicated and notoriously expensive. Put one in your house and you’re looking at a price tag in the thousands, and that’s before you start paying for monthly monitoring.
Enter Wyze. The first thing Wyze Labs did was eliminate the hefty cost. Dramatically! How dramatic? Like, from $50-$100/month down to $5/month dramatic—with simple, intuitive hardware that takes less than ten minutes to set up and install. All the same sensors and devices. All the same monitoring. All the same emergency notifications. A fraction of the price.
Even more significant, Wyze reconceptualized home monitoring beyond simple security. They realized that modern smart devices should have the ability to keep you safe from more than just criminals. They should keep you safe from sky high repair bills, as well. The Wyze home-monitored house not only knows there’s an intruder or open window. It knows whether it has a leaky pipe. It can tell you when the humidity is a little high. Wyze sees home monitoring as only one small part of a larger smart home ecosystem—one that does everything from lock the doors and dim the lights to start the vacuum and adjust the thermostat.Buy now
