Home & Office
Freshen up their home and office by making living spaces more inviting and work spaces more inspiring.
The holiday season is here again, which means that holiday sales and discounts are ramping up. The latest technology has long been the focus of gifting and self-gifting both personally and professionally. TVs, speakers, headphones, cell phones, movies, and other types of electronics have dominated the sales charts for years, and this holiday season will likely be no exception. Getting the newest gaming console, the best streaming device, or the hottest superhero movie will be the goal of many holiday shoppers. Other shoppers, however, will focus on different types of tech for the holidays.
One particular category of electronics that has grown in popularity over the past decade or so is smart home technology. So much of modern technology is crafted on the concept of multiple electronics working together to produce the best possible effect. People often enhance TVs, for example, with sound systems, media players, custom remotes, etc. PC owners may replace keyboards, mice, and speakers with more high-tech counterparts. Smart technology, however, involves more than simply surrounding one piece of electronics with smaller accessories. Smart devices can be spread throughout a home, business, or property and connected through the internet.
Gifting a friend or coworker with year-round comfort is simple thanks to the Dyson AM09. As its name implies, this unit can heat or cool an entire room quickly and evenly. Dyson's Jet Focus technology gives this system the ability to focus airflow as broadly or narrowly as needed. As is typical of Dyson's technology, the AM09 relies on airflow rather than blades and hides rather than exposes heating elements. The construction and configuration of the unit make it safe, quiet, and energy-efficient.
Many shoppers are fond of Dyson's distinctive design that adds an aesthetically pleasing element to any room. This Dyson's sleep timer can be preset with a variety of intervals that can help to maintain a room's temperature day or night. The sleek yet simple remote control is clearly marked with all the buttons needed to control the AM09 from anywhere in the room. The AM09 is a modern appliance with a futuristic appearance that can provide homey comfort with the push of a button.

Back when smart technology first began to come into its own, most tech consumers weren't sitting around and wondering when a smart meat thermometer was going to come out. Enough grill-masters believed in the concept and successfully raised enough money on a popular crowd-funding site to produce the original MEATER. The MEATER+ is the descendant of the MEATER; its main virtue is its ability to provide grillers and cooks with significantly more wireless range when cooking.
The MEATER+ uses Bluetooth technology to transmit information via apps. Dual sensors show cooks both internal and ambient temperatures of grills and ovens. The Smart Guided Cook System provides step-by-step assistance during the grilling process for inexperienced or distracted cooks. Whether shoppers are looking for a wireless meat thermometer to give experienced grillers, something for amateurs who can benefit from digital guidance while cooking, or a gift for those who simply must have the latest grilling technology, the MEATER+ is an excellent holiday gift choice.
