Does anyone have any ideas to give to my boyfriend for valentine's day? He is hard to buy presents for because he is really content but he loves tech things. I normally buy him chocolate. He has been talking about a smart light system.
We have Philips Hue installed in most of our house. I like it. My thought behind getting it was mostly energy saving, although I’m not sure it does. Automation is neat. Having some lights turn on when the sun goes down and gradually making them brighter as it gets darker outside and then having them automatically turn off when they aren’t needed, or being able to turn them all off or on with one tap. And when you are not at home you can have the lights simulate human interaction with them. Also, everyone can control the lights with their phones and tablets. Wall mounted light switches are obsolete.
I know you can get affordable colour changing light bulbs from Amazon that you can pair with your 'Alexa', google home or smartphone! If you're looking to keep the price down this may be a good alternative
Personally I never give or receive presents for Valentines (mostly I do roll over Christmases as well). Does he have a drone? It's the kind of thing that OBE would be a little shy of buying for oneself but you can get very cheap ones now courtesy of DJI (who apparently have 70 per cent of the drone market).
#6: Sorry about the video. I don't remember which one it was so I can't replace it. I guess we may have paid perhaps 500 USD. You may not need all that we have. I would suggest starting with one of the base kits to see if it's what you want. The cheapest one is about 70 USD. Then he can control two lamps with his phone and add accessories as needed.
