Christmas is coming soon ! Unfortunately, it is not always easy to complete the last purchases and find THE gift that will hit the mark, especially when the recipient is very “connected”, or even downright already over-equipped. Here are some gift ideas to help you find the missing item in your collection ...

Athletes: watches and connected bracelets
You are not unaware that fashion is at w, these connected objects that can be worn such as connected watches or fitness bracelets.
In the first category, we can cite the watch Fitbit Versa 3 which includes GPS, or the previous version Fitbit Versa 2 without GPS, but both have Alexa like Google Assistant in their dial. Particularly sport-oriented, the watch Realme watch offers follow-up with 14 sports integrated but no GPS. It provides heart monitoring and sends notifications from the most famous applications.
The anxious: connected objects for their safety
Safety is priceless, especially for the anxious! Securing their home is sometimes even an obsession, which you can help them treat with all kinds of detectors and detectors: movement, opening, smoke, CO, CO2… Home automation, of which security is one of the pillars, offers many solutions.
Because you have to think about it, the alarm has become essential in all homes. And it's even better when it's compatible with your connected home. So with the Ring Alarm V2, you can include base and module in routines. With alarm Yale Sync, another model we presented to you this year, you will also be able to trigger your lights thanks to the partnership between Yale and Philips Hue, either by activating / deactivating the alarm or when it goes off.
Finally, the camera will perfectly complement the above devices, in particular the Yale Light and Siren which, as said before, displays the live stream on the screen of a device Amazon Echo or Google Nest, or the TP-Link Tapo C200 fixed on a ceiling, or the very discreet and just as accessible Blink mini. Is Food Worried For You? No problem. You also have battery models like the Konyks Camini Go or even the excellent Ring Stick Up Cam which can be used both indoors and outdoors.
Gamers: LED panels and other RGB decorations
We are not going to suggest that you offer simple bulbs, but much more decorative lighting. So to fully immerse yourself in a film or video game, the Govee Flow Pro bars or the Philips Hue Play are ideal. For more "voluminous" lighting but very smart, triangular panels Benexsmart Smart Panel will highlight a section of wall while bringing colorful lighting to a room. The triangle is not your preference? No worries, Govee offers its Glide RGBIC tubes or even a superb neon ribbon.
Cinephiles: streaming on the program
With many models of keys and streaming boxes, Amazon allows everyone to find "Fire at their feet" and even provides direct access buttons to services: Prime Video, Netflix, Disney + and Amazon Music. We particularly recommend the FireTV 4K Max for its power, or the essential Fire TV Cube for the most demanding.
Readers: Kindle Essentials
The youngest: interactive games
Why not play with Alexa ? This is now possible with some classics such as Railroad Adventurers. A road rail to choose from across Europe or the USA.
Maniacs: a robot for a always clean house
Although not always considered a very personal gift, the robot vacuum cleaner makes an interesting gift in more than one respect. Apart from the fact that it saves fatigue, it allows you to save time, do other activities and have a good time with those around you. And that is important! We obviously recommend the Roborock S7, the best-seller of the year, but also the very nice Yeedi Vac Max or even Proscenic M8 Pro.
The enthusiasts: a home automation box
Does he / she like home automation? Informed hacker or for passionate neophyte, the pre-configured box Jeedom atlas is ideal for getting started. It includes a protocol that you must choose when ordering: ZigBee, Z-Wave or EnOcean. We obviously recommend the ZigBee, because on the one hand the equipment is much cheaper, much more numerous, and it is also the protocol that has the most future! In addition, just follow our tutorials to get started easily.
For those looking for more simplicity, there is also a solution plug and play which will allow them to learn easily. Simple, but not simplistic, the Homey Pro box supports 7 communication protocols (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Z-Wave, 433 MHz, 868 Mhz, Infrared) and also allows to go much further for those who like " get your hands dirty". In addition, it is natively compatible with Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri!
