The Airthings Hub is a device that allows users to monitor the indoor air quality of their home or office through a network of wireless sensors that detect temperature, humidity, radon gas, CO2 and other harmful chemicals.

The device also features a built-in alarm that alerts occupants if levels of harmful gases or chemicals reach dangerous levels.
While Google might have scrapped its smart glasses, Amazon still thinks there’s progress to be made. Its Echo Frames smart glasses allow users to stay connected to the digital world while staying engaged with the physical world around them. The glasses have built-in microphones and speakers that allow users to access Alexa, Amazon’s virtual assistant, without needing to pull out a smartphone or other device. As a result, Echo Frames lets you make calls, send messages, set reminders, play music and more, just with your voice. The glasses also feature a discreet touchpad for easy control, and perhaps most useful of all, they come with prescription lenses and multiple frame designs to fit your personal style.
The Capstone Touch Screen Smart Mirror
This innovative and futuristic mirror combines the functionality of a touchscreen display with the practicality of a mirror.

You can also use it to control your other smart home devices and even make video calls. In addition to its high-tech features, the mirror has a built-in LED light for optimal illumination and a Bluetooth speaker for audio playback. Expect to find these in fashion store changing rooms, upmarket hotel rooms and on teenagers’ Christmas lists.
Moen Flo Smart Water Detector
Another interesting IoT device is the Moen Flo Smart Water Detector. This device is designed to detect and prevent water damage in the home by monitoring for leaks, bursts and other water-related issues. It can be placed in areas of the home that are prone to leaks, such as near appliances, water heaters, radiators and pipes, and it sends alerts to a smartphone if it detects any abnormalities. Additionally, the device can be connected to the Moen Smart Water Shutoff, which, as the name suggests, can automatically shut off the main water supply in the event of a major leak or burst pipe.
Cisco Meraki Smart Cameras
These smart cameras are designed to provide comprehensive security and surveillance capabilities for businesses. Equipped with advanced features, such as object recognition, motion detection and facial recognition, they allow companies to monitor activity and keep track of who’s coming and going. The cameras also feature cloud-based management software, which allows businesses to monitor their cameras from anywhere, at any time, and on any device. Additionally, the cameras can be integrated with other IoT devices, such as access control systems, to provide a comprehensive security solution.
