This nifty smart oven has a camera installed so you can check on your grub without leaving your seat. The camera links up to an app on your phone, which also allows you to remotely control the oven’s settings.

Mira Activate Smart Shower |£478.99
This clever shower by Mira allows you to turn it on and even set the temperature you want by using your phone. No more standing and waiting for your water to heat up!

The app also allows you to monitor your water usage, so you can save money and save the planet at the same time!
Veil WC | £4,672
Cleaning the toilet is always a chore, so it was about time that someone invented a self-cleaning toilet, which is exactly what the Veil Intelligent WC does. The tech uses a UV light and electrolysed water system to sanitise with a range of other convenient features including LED lighting to illuminate the bowl for any midnight toilet trips, and an automatic deodorisation function. The toilet also has a bidet-style cleaning system with adjustable spray shape, position, and temperature, and a warm air drying system with adjustable temperature settings.
Furbo Dog Camera | £249
Let’s be honest, we’ve all wondered what our pets get up to while we’re away. Well, wonder no longer, as the Furbo Dog Camera allows you to check in on your fuzzy bundles of joy when you’re not home. This camera not only lets you look at your pets via an app downloaded on your phone, but you can also listen in and even talk to your pets remotely. The app will also send you a notification if your pet is barking, so you can check and see what’s going on. In addition to all these useful features, the cherry on top is that the camera can fire out treats to your pets through a command on the app!
LG Signature Door-in-Door Refrigerator | £1,549
If you’ve ever wanted to know what’s in your fridge without going to the trouble of opening the door and letting warm air in, this is the one for you. This new smart fridge from LG will show you the contents inside if you knock twice on the door. The fridge also contains an air purification system and can be controlled by an app. If you own an Amazon Echo or Google Assistant, then you can link the fridge up to those and control it using just your voice, including opening the doors when you have your hands full of shopping to put away!
