My 12 Favorite Amazon Gadgets for the Home!

Shopping Tips | Style Guides

Here are 12 incredibly useful and cool Amazon gadgets for the home. This is my list of favorites and now that I have them, I wonder how I ever lived without them!

It’s shopping season!!!!! No, it’s not Christmas, it’s AMAZON PRIME DAY! Well almost…

This is when you buy things you never knew you needed but then wonder how you ever lived without….all from the comfort of your own home.

If you haven’t heard, Amazon Prime Day is June 21st and 22nd! This is a 48-hour sale for Prime members only with over 2 MILLION products on sale! I love the idea that I can browse, select, and checkout in a matter of minutes, with my item arriving within just TWO DAYS!

If you aren’t already signed up for AMAZON PRIME, it’s well worth it in my opinion. If you aren’t already signed up, you can try it free for 30 days HERE! The free trial is enough to qualify you for Prime day, so it’s a win-win!

While I don’t yet know what’s going to be on sale, I thought I’d share 12 of my favorites Amazon gadgets for the home in preparation for the big event.

I have my own AMAZON STOREFRONT where you can see all of my favorite items, broken down by category. While there are amazing deals on everything from electronics, to fashion, beauty, and more, this article is all about my favorite gadgets for the home. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

1. Ring Floodlight Camera

We unfortunately had our car broken into one night, so the next day we purchased and installed the Ring Floodlight Camera. What I love is that the camera and lights are motion-activated and YOU can set the sensitivity and motion zones. On our model, there is also two-way talk feature and alarm.

Plus, the NIGHT VISION on the camera is excellent! Here’s a view from my camera last night without the floodlight off:

2. USB Wall Outlet

I have teenagers, so these are a must in our home. I had never seen USB wall outlets until our master bathroom remodel a couple of years ago and now I want to change over all of my outlets!

So many devices now come with USB chargers instead of traditional plugs {like my Clarisonic} and this style of outlet gives you two USB outlets and still have two regular outlets!

3. Programmable Light Switch

We have an older version of this, but the programmable light switch is the perfect solution for outdoor lights!

No more forgetting to turn off the lights at night! This programmable switch turns them on and off for you. Simply swap out your standard light switch for this one and you’re all set!

4. Dyson Cordless Vacuum

I know people often wonder if the Dyson Cordless Vaccum is worth the money and my answer is YES! I’ve tried a couple of other brands but always go back to the Dyson as my favorite.

You can get various tools for it for carpet, hardwood, crevices, etc. so it really is an all-in-one vacuum!

5. Remote Control Receiver Kit

This remote control receiver kit allows you to operate electronic components behind CLOSED DOORS!

Okay, so why is this good?

It used to be that in order to work TV satellite boxes, DVD players, receivers, etc. you had to either have glass doors or open shelving so that your remote would work with these components.

This device allows you to have solid doors {and hide the unsightly mess} and still work your remotes! You just attach two little sensors to the back of the door. Easy peasy!

6. Ecobee Smart Thermostat

If you don’t already own a smart thermostat, this is a game changer! You’ll save money on energy costs because the thermostat will know if someone is home or not. Why heat or cool the house if you’re away!

Plus, it’s so easy to use from the app on your phone so you can adjust the settings anywhere, anytime. Bonus, it works with Amazon alexa so you can get the weather, ask questions, play music, etc.

The Ecobee Smart Thermostat also works with a SmartSensor. You can place these in any room and it’ll track the temperature of that room and send the details to the thermostat. With the SmartSensor, you’ll be just the right temperate where YOU are, not just where the thermostat is located.

This little sensor is right next to my bed so I stay cool all night long…

7. Flexisnake Drain Weasel

I saw these on a list somewhere and thought I’d give them a try. These Flexisnake Drain Weasels are a game-changer! They are easy to use and quickly unclog yucky drains. No more slow draining sinks in our house! For under $20 these are a must-have for the home.

8. Electric Foot Callus Remover

Okay, this maybe isn’t the greatest to talk about, but trust me, you’ll thank me for this one! Your summer feet will be smooth and beautiful. I bought this about a month ago and couldn’t be happier.

This electric foot callous remover comes with different roller heads depending on your need. It’s not at all painful to use and the results are amazing. With 4.5 stars and over 23k reviews, it looks like I’m not the only one that loves it!

9. Humidity Sensing Exhaust Fan

You probably haven’t given must thought to your bathroom exhaust fan. Neither had I until our contractor installed this Delta Breeze exhaust fan with humidity sensor.

If you ever forget to turn on the fan and fog up the bathroom mirror, this is for you! You can flip a switch to keep the humidity sensor on at all times. It will turn the fan on automatically for you whenever the bathroom gets too humid!

10. Roku Ultra 2020

A Roku player is a device that you attach to your TV that will allow you to access all of your apps in one place. If you have a smart TV, it will come with apps loaded, like Netflix of Amazon Prime. But it might not have all of the ones you want. Roku provides a ton of apps to choose from and then you can access everything all from just one device. This is how I watch all of my British TV on Britbox and Acorn!

11. Solar Landscape Spotlights

I purchased these a few months ago and am so happy with them! These are simple solar lights that come in four different colors with two brightness modes. They are waterproof and the light can be adjusted 90 degrees vertically, so I use them as uplighting on my cypress trees.

I use them on the brighter setting to light the fountain in my side yard.

12. Digital Picture Frame

We bought this digital picture frame for my mom last Christmas and she’s having so much fun with it! I installed the app for it on my phone as well as hers. Now I can easily send her new pictures of the kids with the touch of a button! This is a great gift for anyone who lives far away and wants current pictures of the kids.

Here is the frame all set up at my mom’s house:

And that’s my list of 12 favorite Amazon gadgets for the home! I also have a list of my favorite Amazon Home Decor you can check out {HERE}.

Have a wonderful week ahead!
