Upgrade your home with these top five Christmas gifts for Apple enthusiasts

Power strip with four Meross outlets

We start the selection of ideas with the Meross power strip (37.43 euros). Has four outlets that can be controlled independently through the application for mobile devices or voice assistants such as Siri, Alexa, or Google Assistant. It also has USB sockets for devices such as mobile phones, Kindle, tablets, “smart” watches, etc. It integrates the timer function and is easily associated with Apple HomeKit.

Aqara E1 Indoor Camera

We continue with a device compatible with Apple HomeKit that has been recently launched, the Aqara E1 (49.99 euros). This indoor home security camera reaches 2K resolution and stands out for its wide-angle lens and 360º visualization. With infrared night vision, it offers full support for HomeKit Secure Video and can also be integrated into Alexa and Google Assistant assistants.

Meross LED Strip Lights

LED lights have been in fashion for a long time because they allow you to create all types of environments with the push of a button, in addition to being easy to place. This Meross pack (31.99 euros) has two strips, each five meters long, that can be customized with millions of colors. Each meter offers 550 lumens and allows you to control the brightness, in addition to being compatible with Apple HomeKit (Siri), Alexa, and Google Assistant. They have a timer function and are not waterproof.

Aqara G4 video intercom

Another very interesting proposal comes from the Aqara G4 (89.99 euros), a video doorbell that records in Full HD resolution and has local facial recognition for alerts, automations, and more. Compatible with HomeKit, Alexa, Google Assistant, and IFTTT, it can record 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and supports MicroSD cards of up to 512 GB for local storage, although if it is integrated with HomeKit these remain in the cloud. It has a voice change function and custom ringtones.

Meross Door and Window Sensor

We finished with the Meross door and window sensor (22.49 euros). Comes in a pack with a hub so it can work. As its name indicates, it is used to know if a door or window is opened, with the user receiving a notification on their smartphone. It is also useful for performing automations and setting triggers that control other HomeKit devices (for example, turning on the entrance light when you open the front door). It is compact, easily installed with adhesive tape, and is a good security and automation accessory.
