Best Smart Home Devices for 2024

Smart home devices get better each year, offering more features for your comfort and safety. Whether you’re new to the smart home game or have familiar features you want upgraded to the latest models, 2024 is a great year to invest in the latest tech. 

Choose from these best smart home devices.

Security Cameras 

Security cameras are one of the most popular smart home devices. They allow you to monitor your property, both inside and outside the home. With smart devices, you can access the cameras anytime and anywhere. 

Doorbell Cameras 

Doorbell cameras are the smart home version of peepholes. The cameras automatically activate when they sense movement in front of your door. They’ll let you see and hear any visitors—whether you expected them to show up or not. Many come with communication features, so in addition to seeing and hearing your guests, you can speak back to them. 

They are ideal for monitoring package delivery and glancing at whoever is knocking at your door before you open it. You can also see your kids if they’re on the porch, monitor any suspicious activity while you’re away, or capture footage of mischievous animals. 

Outdoor Cameras 

Outdoor cameras allow you to keep an eye on other parts of your property. The biggest benefit of outdoor cameras is the safety they can provide. If visible, outdoor cameras are deterrents for potential thieves or troublemakers. They allow you to monitor your garage and protect against car theft. 

You can also use outdoor cameras to monitor your backyard. You may want to occasionally check in on your dog while he plays outside or review footage after an unexpected windstorm to see where garden equipment landed. 

Indoor Cameras 

Indoor cameras give you visibility for any part of your home. You can watch your pets while you’re away at work, check in on the neighbor who is watering your plants while you’re on vacation, or keep an eye on your kids from another room. 

Indoor cameras also give you access while you’re away. They can offer peace of mind should anything unexpected or dangerous happen. With smart home devices like this, you’re in control.

Door Locks 

With smart home door locks, you no longer need to keep extra copies of your key around. Smart door locks operate with a number keypad or an app—though most still have manual key tumblers so you can insert and turn a metal key to open the door if you want to. This gives you more options for opening your door.

Most models allow you to program multiple access keys, so you can monitor whose code opened the door. This way, you can program the door to alert you if the housekeeper comes in without being bothered by a notification if you enter your own code. 

Smart door locks also keep your house more secure. You don’t have to keep a spare key hidden in the front yard. You can also keep duplicate keys to a minimum or change passcodes if you want to revoke access from someone.


Smart thermostat systems allow for both automation and customization. Typically linked to an app on your phone, smart thermostats can be monitored and adjusted no matter where you are. 

If you’re on vacation, for example, you can save energy by running your HVAC unit less frequently—and still come home to a perfect temperature by turning the system back on just before your return. Or, on an unexpectedly cold morning, you can adjust the temperature from bed. 

If you don’t want to manually adjust your temperature, you can program the system to adjust automatically based on your routine, preferences, or other input like weather.

Safety Sensors 

Homes have had safety sensors like fire alarms for years. With smart home technology, it is even easier to keep your family safe. Plus, home insurance often offers discounts for more advanced safety sensors. 

Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Smart home smoke and carbon monoxide detectors primarily function the same way traditional ones do: they sound the alarm if smoke or carbon monoxide is in the home. However, the smart features keep you informed and can get you to safety even quicker. 

Smart smoke detectors will alert you of the problem, even if you aren’t at home. You’ll get a notification on your connected app. The system will also automatically alert authorities so firefighters or other necessary personnel can be dispatched as soon as possible. 

Flood Detector

Flood detectors are relatively new technology. They can monitor humidity and leaks to prevent water damage in your home. They can often be connected to smart water valves so that you can remotely stop running water to control any plumbing issues, even if you aren’t at home.

These devices can be placed in any high-risk area. Basements, laundry rooms, or bathrooms are popular locations for flood detectors.
