Smart home products are an easy, affordable way for homeowners to enjoy the convenience and added security of automating their houses. Here's a preview of some of our newest smart home products, including strip lights, oil diffusers, Wi-Fi security cameras and smart garage door openers.

Strip Lights are a Simple, Versatile Lighting Solution

Looking for a way to add extra illumination to hard-to-light areas? Strip lights are perfect for lighting door frames, kitchen cabinets and more. Just plug them into any USB input and connect through the Geeni app. Then, use your phone or tablet to adjust the brightness and change the lighting color to fit your particular mood. The strip itself can be cut to any length and attaches easily to most surfaces with a strong adhesive. Strip lights are available in 9.8 ft, 16.4 ft and 32.8 ft. lengths.

Control the Lights in Your Entire Room with a Smart Home Switch

Speaking of lighting, why not make your entire room "smart" with the addition of a smart hub switch? The Geeni Wi-Fi 3-Way Light Switch replaces traditional 3-way light setups, enabling you to program your lights to turn on and off according to a set schedule, key them to a particular temperature or control them from anywhere via your phone. It's also compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, allowing your lights to be voice-activated.

De-Stress with a Smart Oil Diffuser

Need to add a little relaxation into your day? Check out the Geeni Harmony Essence Oil Diffuser. Just plug it in, connect it to the app, add your favorite essential oil and get ready to unwind. This smart diffuser lets you program it to turn on and off according to your schedule, so you can set it and forget it.

Secure Your Home with a Wi-Fi Security Camera

Interested in making your home more secure? We carry a number of Wi-Fi security cameras for a variety of needs and budgets. Keep an eye on any room in your home with the Geeni Aware Smart Security Camera. Access real-time and stored footage from anywhere using the Geeni app on your phone or tablet. It also features a built-in motion sensor, a 110° wide-angle lens, as well as HD night vision and image-enhancing technology. The micro SD card (not included) stores up to 64GB of local storage.

Looking for an outdoor option? The Geeni Hawk 3 HD Security Camera allows you to monitor your house, driveway or door with live stream video from your phone or other device. The camera is weatherproof and features infrared night vision for monitoring your home at night. It's also ready to use right out of the box; simply mount it, power it up, then install the Geeni app to keep track of your home.

The Geeni Freebird Wireless Camera is another great security option. Install it anywhere for a 24/7 HD livestream view from your phone. It stands upright on its own, mounts to walls via a standard screw mount or can be attached to metal surfaces via its magnetic backing. The camera is completely wireless and features a 2-way talk mode, allowing you to communicate with visitors without opening your door. Other features include enhanced infrared night vision, a motion sensor alarm, plus it's waterproof.

Control Your Garage Door Remotely with a Smart Garage Door Opener

Smart garage door openers notify you any time someone is manually opening your door. They also offer the convenience of opening and closing your garage remotely using your phone, which is perfect for admitting workmen or other guests. The Genie Aladdin Smart Garage Door kit comes with a door control module for use with up to three garage doors, as well as a position sensor that can sense the presence of others. The connect system also maintains a history of every time your door has been opened or closed.
