“We make our gadgets our own by the way that we use them, with or without the permission of the manufacturer.” – Laura Moncur
When it comes to Smart gadgets, we have to chuckle and strongly agree with the words above from Laura Moncur. All one has to do is spend some time watching how people have modified gadgets and products for their own purposes on YouTube or other media platforms…some with very creative outcomes, while others are just plain ridiculous, but very funny.
We at Gadget Gifts for All are excited for the continuous evolution to a world defined by Smart technology. Yet, it will be a demanding journey as industries worldwide will require challenges not clearly defined.
While these questions and challenges will confront researchers and manufacturers well into the future, we can take advantage of many Smart technologies that are readily available today, all designed to make our lives just a bit more comfortable and convenient.
the following products, gadgets and gift ideas shown below are what we consider to be the “Best in Class” in Smart items.

SimpliSafe Home Security System. This is about as “smart” as it gets for securing a home or business. It is totally wireless and can be installed in a very short time depending on the number and placement of sensors desired. There is no drilling required.
Gadget Gifts for All purchased this system several years ago and it works flawlessly. The batteries within each sensor are still working since the initial purchase. The base station recently notified us when one battery became low and this will be replaced within a week.
We purchased additional sensors, such as a water sensor, a temperature sensor, a glass-breaking sensor and more window sensors. In addition, we chose the optional monitoring system for safety and business reasons. We also chose the optional security camera
When we are away from the business, SimpliSafe will send us text messages in case of unwanted intrusions, broken water pipes and other sensor indications.
The panic button can instantly dispatch emergency personnel when activated (requires a subscription to 24/7 Professional Monitoring). However, the panic button can be used to simply sound the alarm without the optional monitoring package.
This package includes a base Station, a keypad, 4 entry sensors, a motion sensor and a panic button. The entire system works with Alexa, but Alexa is not needed for the system to function.
In our opinion, SimpliSafe is one of the best security systems available on the market. Amazon provides 3 videos detailing the product, available options and installation instructions. See all the reviews, ratings, product videos, images and details at Amazon.

Indoor Electric Mouse Trap. This use of this device is likely the most humane method to eliminate the mice that may be lurking in your home or business. Much safer than using poison bait or chemicals that may be accidentally consumed by pets or children.
This mouse trap quickly and efficiently exterminates mice using 6,000-9,000 of high-voltage shock delivered from 4 AA batteries. The rodent will not suffer needlessly from consuming poisons and chemicals.
With the no-escape design, once the rodent enters the trap, it naturally will move toward the bait (peanut butter, small piece of cheese, etc.) As the mouse reaches the bait, the device delivers the shock. It only activates when a rodent is detected inside the device.
There is no need to ever see the dead rodent. Simply pull off the magnetic lid and place the rodent in the trash. And when the lid is removed, the device deactivates immediately to eliminate the chance of an unwanted shock. See all the reviews, ratings, product videos, images and details at Amazon.
