Smart home solutions are still one of the hottest trends in tech right now, but some are better than others. We’re always on the lookout for connected devices that offer some truly cool functionality, and boy did we find one in the Zuli Smartplug. This affordable smart home kit offers Smart Home control, dimmer features, energy monitoring and timer controls all in one package, but its coolest feature has to be presence awareness. Compatible with Philips Hue bulbs and the Nest Thermostat, Zuli has a presence feature that knows exactly where you are in your home and can adjust your lighting and the temperature in your house based on your exact location. So for example, your basement lights can turn on automatically anytime you walk down the basement stairs. How cool is that?

Some highlights from the product page:

  • Control your lights and appliances from one beautiful app on your iPhone
  • Zuli works with the Nest Thermostat and Philips Hue – control both within the Zuli app
  • Set the perfect mood lighting right from your iPhone – Zuli turns any lamp into a dimmer
  • Zuli Presence knows when you’re in a room and instantly sets the perfect lighting and temperature
  • View the energy usage of every light and appliance in your home – so you can make smarter choices
  • Zuli works with iPhone 4s, 5s, 6, 6+, 6s, 6s+ and iOS 7.1 or later
  • Rated at 1800W
