As a programmable smart thermostat, the Nest learns your schedule and the temperatures you prefer and programs itself to help you keep you comfortable and save on energy costs. Home/Away Assist automatically adjusts itself to an Eco Temperature after you leave, so you don’t heat or cool an empty home. Additionally, the HVAC monitoring feature tracks your heating and cooling system and will send an alert if something doesn’t seem right, which can make maintenance easier. And it can be set up to your Echo and programmed right from your phone or tablet through the Nest app.

Whether you’re in an apartment, condo or house, the Ring doorbell adds unparalleled security and convenience to your home. Receive mobile alerts when anyone presses your doorbell or triggers your built-in motion sensors and see, hear, and speak to them from your phone, tablet, or computer. Also pairs with select Alexa-enabled devices for announcements and two-way talk for convenient in-home monitoring.

Whether it’s you, your kids or your pets making a mess, it’s always nice to have some extra help with vacuuming. The Eufy RoboVac does just that, with the ability to program and schedule your vacuuming. The smart technology enables it to work around corners and furniture and can clean both hard and carpeted surfaces. Best of all, it’s much quieter than a typical vacuum cleaner, so you can run it during the day without the noisy distraction.

If you have pets, this is one of the best cameras for peace of mind while you’re away. This wi-fi enabled camera lets you watch your pet from your phone and provides one-way audio plus a treat dispenser. You can also capture photos of your pet to save and share with friends or on social media.

Whether you’re into sports, movies or reality TV, the Sonos Arc Soundbar can bring your TV viewing experience to the next level with realistic and immersive sound. You can control the sound from your remote, with your voice, through the Sonos app or through Apple AirPlay 2. And when your TV is off, you can stream music, radio, podcasts, and more from your favorite services. Plus, it’s sleek and discrete design won’t take away from the look of your home.

We're not your typical real estate agents. As former city dwellers, we appreciate the qualities that make city lifestyle so unique, from the convenience of walking to your favorite restaurant or corner store to the vast and diverse cultural and entertainment activities. But we’ve also experienced the challenges and frustrations that are motivating you to seek change. During our transition from the city to the suburbs, we had the same thoughts, concerns and questions, prompting us to create a better way to navigate the suburban home search process for others.
