by birtanpublished on September 15, 2020

What's up everybody this is Danny and today I'm going to show you some cool smart home products for less than $50 this won't break the bank and it will help your home become a little bit smarter now this is the first episode so let me know if you want me to hit some

Different price points maybe twenty-five dollars hundred dollars maybe even beyond that so let me know how you like this the first product I want to show you is the yachty smart light switch pro you might have seen this on my channel

Before but there are some updates and improvements to this version so make sure you check out the original video on that light switch I will leave it link down below for you one of the major reasons why I think you would buy this

Light switch over another one is because of its Italian tempered glass design its touch sensitive it feels silky smooth and its built-in backlight gives it a really nice touch and it matches perfectly with my home and gives it that

Modern look that a lot of people are going for right now two major things that I think are important for this version it gets a new frame and mounting design so much better than the older one the installation is just as easy and

That new design makes it easy to swap faces so this is a great option for interior designers the light switch pairs with the yachty app it's compatible with iOS and Android you can control the lights from anywhere using

The app you can set schedules and even set them to turn the lights on and off at sunrise and sunset when you are away you can make it look like your home by turning the lights on and off randomly you can also use geofencing to let the

Yachty switch know that you enter the neighborhood and set one of these up in your garage to have your garage door open for you when you pull up my favorite feature is having the lights come on when your phone connects to your

Home Wi-Fi network so you don't have to walk into a dark house when I check these out last time they only have the single game models but now they are double and triple gain switches available so I know some people ask me

That in the comment section on the last video if you want to pick one of these up for less than $50 I'm gonna leave a link down below for you for their Kickstarter campaign they have some pretty good discounts right now some

Nice packages especially if you want to get more than one of these light switches this is a great way to start your smart home instead of buying a bunch of light bulbs you can let this automate your existing lights

That link down below because these prices are only available for limited time a lot of people like the echo dot because it's cheap and Alexa is amazing for voice controlling your smart home but if you want something a little bit

Different and a speaker that stands out then check out the fabric riff this is a smart Bluetooth speaker with Alexa built-in I like the colors that are available while they might not be for everyone I like how unique they are

There's a built-in battery so it's portable and it has a few modes to kick on some cool lights that are underneath the speaker I think that also gives it a nice touch it's fun you can access Alexa by pressing that talk button and you can

Link up to ten of these to get that crazy multi room sound it's really simple and easy to use there's even a larger version called the fabric chorus with better sound so I'll leave that link down below for you but that will

Cost you twice as much if you want to go the Google route then check out the Google home mini this also has that nice fabric feel and comes in different colors as well the design is really nice and simple it will fit into most

People's homes without any problems you can also control your smart home with Google home mini same great Google home functionality just in a smaller package and this thing is small but it has the legit sound check this out ok Google

Play some J Dilla sure check out this J Dilla station on YouTube speakers legit this comes in right at $50 but I highly recommend it one of the first things you can do to make your

Home smarter is adding a smart plug and this Wemo mini is cheap and effective right now this thing's about 30 bucks but it's pretty powerful it has a nice clean white design with a power button on the right hand side so you can just

Turn on whatever is plugged into it like this lamp compare this with the Wemo app and you can schedule whatever's plugged in to turn on and off at certain times you can plug it into a lamp and then you can schedule it to turn on and off at

Random time so when you're gone it can make it look like your home is lived in you can add as many as you want to and of course you can control it from anywhere right on your smart phone and it also has compatibility with Amazon

Alexa and Google home if this and that and this so this is a great starting point for your smart home budget security cameras are something that I get asked about all the time and why I personally use nest IQ cams they are

About 300 bucks so it can get pretty expensive not everybody can afford that so while I was researching for this video I wanted to see what security cameras are out there under $50 and while looking on Amazon there was a one

For less than 50 bucks and all the reviews say that it's great so I couldn't pass it up so I ordered one for $35 you get the 720p version and for about 10 dollars more you can get a 1080p one the bucks does look a little

Sketch but the camera itself isn't too bad it has a micro SD card slot that can hold up to 32 gigabytes so that's a lot of footage the website says it could record up to two weeks of video and it supports loop recording which is great

You stick it on with 3m that comes in the box and the camera is rotatable just keep in mind the price point here when it comes to build quality there's an app that you need to download the setup is pretty easy

There's even motion detection and you could get push notifications if you want to the camera records when it sees motion there's a speaker also built into this thing for two-way talk and you can

Access your camera at any time with the app this is not bad at all for $35 even though the quality is not gonna be insane it will do for a lot of people there are some downsides though it only supports the 2.4 gigahertz band not 5

Gigahertz which I wish is supported but I think a lot of people will be happy with this this camera is not Wireless so you do have to keep it plugged in this is not really a smart camera but it can be very low-key on the security side if

The situation calls for it this is a wall plug camera there are tons of them out there but this is pretty much the most stealth security camera that you can get it records off of a micro SD card 32 gigabytes is the highest

Capacity it records 1080p video not the best in quality but it will work for sure in a pinch you can have it continuously record or have it recorded when it detects motion the website says it can record for about 8 hours or so

And then it will loop record which is cool this is a good backup if your other security cameras are not in view no one will really notice it there there aren't really any smart functions to it but I thought I'd throw it so what do you

Think guys there's a lot out there in this price point but I thought these were some of the better ones that were out there there's not a ton underneath that price point like $25 that's actually worth any kind of quality

Unfortunately when it comes to quality smart home products you have to go really farther up there so make sure you check out all my other smart home coverage ultimate smart home different things that I've covered because some of

Those products are amazing and you can build them piece by piece so don't be scared to build your smart home cause you can start from the lower tier and just add a few things on like smart plugs and then build up to that ultimate

Smart home so let me know which price point that you want me to hit next leave that in the comment section below make sure you smash that like button if you enjoyed this and I'm gonna actually probably put together a smart home

Starter pack for people and do a giveaway because I think a lot of people would love to start a smart home they just don't have enough funds to make that work so if you want to see that happen make sure you smack that like

Button and also comment on this video and share it thank you guys for watching I appreciate it thank you for the support and I see you guys in the next one
