To simplify your life.
THE PROBLEM I frequently forget to turn things off.
Simplified Smart plugs
Remotely control and schedule almost anything that plugs into a wall
— while avoiding any electrical hazards — with a few swipes of your smartphone.
The Wyze Plug($14.99 for a two-pack; wyze.com).
THE PROBLEM I’m concerned about home safety.
Simplified Video doorbells
You can even use your smartphone with a video feed to monitor your home when away.
The RemoBell S with motion detection and wide-angle viewing ($99; remoplus.com),
or the Ring Video Doorbell Pro to see, hear, and speak to people
at your door from your phone or tablet ($249.99; ring.com).
THE PROBLEM I often miss doses.
Simplified Pill reminders
The older you get, the more likely you are to take multiple medications — and it’s critical to stay on track.
Reminder Rosie can be programmed in your voice or a loved one’s ($109.99; smpltec.com). Another solid option:
Set an alarm. Use your phone or tablet to remember your medicine. It’s a free and effective strategy that uses tools you may already have.
THE PROBLEM I’m worried I might trip and fall over something in the middle of the night.
Simplified Motion sensors
A smart sensor by your bed, in the hallway, and in other areas of your
home can light your way and prevent a dangerous fall at night.
