SmartHome products under 100 euros – Google Nest Mini
The Google Nest Mini is an affordable smart speaker. You can listen to music, ask questions to the Google Assistant or operate your smart home. All desired functions are on board, just like on a smart speaker costing hundreds of euros, but in a small and compact housing. You will not find the best sound quality for your favorite music here, but the price of this complete smart speaker is accordingly. The suggested retail price is 59 euros, but if you look carefully, you can purchase the smart speaker much cheaper.

SmartHome products under 100 euros – Marmitek Buzz LO
The Marmitek Buzz LO is a smart doorbell with camera and motion detector. Images are recorded in 1080p resolution at an angle of 145 degrees and the video doorbell also has a built-in speaker and microphone for two-way communication. You receive notifications on your smartphone via the Smart Me app and can therefore communicate directly with your visitors. The Buzz LO also has night vision and you can save images locally on an SD card (not included) or via the cloud (subscription required).
The video doorbell was just a bit too expensive at launch. Fortunately, you can now buy the Marmitek Buzz LO together with the wireless Bell ME chime for 99.95 euros. Incidentally, this wireless gong works on the video doorbells from Action and Kruidvat. The Bell ME costs 19.99 euros separately.
Philips Hue Smart Plug
The Philips Hue Smart Plug is a smart plug that will perfectly match your Philips Hue smart lights. The design is simplistic, sleek and neatly finished and the ease of use is great. This model is quickly installed in the Philips Hue app and can also be connected to smart home platforms such as Homey, HomeKit and via voice with Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. You don’t need the bridge by the way. You can also use this smart plug via the Hue Bluetooth app. You can buy this smart plug for 24.95 euros.
SmartHome products under 100 euros – Lidl Christmas lights
Admittedly, the Christmas days have just passed and you may have cleaned up the Christmas tree again. For the coming year we can strongly recommend the 200 RGB LED lighting chain of 49 euros. These smart Christmas lights turn the Christmas tree into a real part of the smart home. Via the app you select colors and scenes and you can also adjust a few things yourself. Please note that you actually need the Lidl Hub for all functionalities. You can connect this Zigbee lighting chain via Philips Hue, but it will then work as a LED strip. And you don’t want that.
Amazon Echo Dot 4
Have nothing to do with the Google Assistant and the Google Home speakers? Amazon Alexa may be something for you. Amazon also has a similar small speaker in its range, but in the form of a small ball. You can do almost the same as with the Google Nest Mini, but on the Amazon platform with the Alexa voice assistant. Note: Alexa does not speak Dutch yet! So you will have to do it with English or German. You buy the Echo Dot 4 for the same price, namely 59 euros.
AduroSmart ERIA LED strip
LED strips are a nice addition to bring atmosphere to your home. The Philips Hue LED strip is often considered the gold standard, but it is not cheap. In that case, take a look at the LED strip of AduroSmart Eria. The three-meter LED strip can show shades of white and 16 million colors. This model also works via Zigbee, which means that you can also use this LED strip in Philips Hue. You buy this LED strip of three meters for 59 euros.
The Blink Mini is a very affordable security camera. Blink is now part of Amazon and therefore certainly not an unknown brand. This security camera is available for 39.99 euros, but has regularly been cheaper during special promotions. This camera has clear images, excellent night vision and good two-way communication. You can also set the motion zones, recordings are reliable and you have a very clear app. In case of movement you will immediately receive a notification on your smartphone. It is a very complete camera for a good price.
Woox R4028 Smart Multi plug
A smart plug is nice, of course, but we almost all lack power outlets. Do you recognize this problem? Then take a look at the Smart Multi plug from Woox. This smart power strip has three sockets that you can operate separately via the app. As an extra bonus, you also get four USB ports at your disposal to charge your smartphone or tablet, for example. Please note that the USB ports cannot be operated separately. For about 35 euros you get three smart plugs in one device.
Vintage Innr filament lamps with E27 fitting (RF 264 and RF 261)
Smart lamps are of course nice, but normal lamps do not always provide the right atmosphere. So take a look at the smart filament lamps from the Dutch Innr. The Innr RF261 (Globe) and RF264 (Edison) look like the classic incandescent bulbs of the past, but in a smart jacket. The globe lamp (RT261) is available for a price of 23.99 euros. The slim Edison model (RF264) costs 18.99 euros. The Innr lamps communicate through the ZigBee standard and that means they can be paired with hubs that support this standard. Think of the Homey hub, Samsung SmartThings and of course Philips Hue.
