3. Goji Smart Lock

It is time to say goodbye to keys and hello to electronic lock systems. Yes, the future is here, and now we have no need for locks or door keys. The Goji Smart Lock is an electronic locking system that fits onto your front door. You can open the lock by using face recognition technology or keying in a pin. The lock films and recognises guests who come to your front door. Much like an intercom system (only much more sophisticated) the lock allows you to see who is at your door. This system could be the future of the door lock. Watch this space.

4. LG Home Chat

LG Home Chat allows you to communicate with your appliances using your mobile phone. For example, if you happen to be out and remember that you have left the oven on, you can send a text message to LG Home Chat. The system will then turn off your oven for you. This style of system is at the forefront of home-centric gadgets. We are likely to see plenty of copycat systems on the market in the next couple of years. The LG Home Chat is exclusive to LG smart watches and phones at the moment.
