    The Best Gadgets from CES 2023 rated by GadgetGram

    With the start of another new year, tech lovers all around the world know that pretty much all tech companies out there are planning on releasing brand-new gadgets and devices that are powered by newer and/or better technology. As any passionate technology enthusiast would likely expect, there’s no better place for tech companies to announce their upcoming new products than Las Vegas’ CES (Consumer Electronics Show), which takes place on the first week of every year and is known globally as “the most influential tech event in the world”. That was exactly the case with CES 2023.

    As such, with the coming of 2023, another CES has already taken place. We at GadgetGram were fortunate enough to be able to see those gadgets first-hand at CES 2023 while taking a big walk around the whole venue. That was all thanks to GadgetGram’s very own Editor-In-Chief, David Novak, who was able to have a very close look at a ton of innovative tech during the first week of 2023.

    On that note, let us tell you more about what we consider to be the very best gadgets that were presented (or at least announced) to the public during CES 2023.

    LG Tiiun – Smart Freestanding Indoor Gardening Appliance

    Originally announced at CES 2022, LG’s Tiiun is a high-end smart freestanding indoor gardening appliance that enables even the most novice of gardeners to cultivate vegetables, herbs, and even flowers right from the comfort of their own homes.

With each seed package containing 10 holes for seed germination, users can grow a variety of greens simultaneously in just four to eight weeks of time, making it a faster micro-green growing process with less mess than you’d usually have growing micro greens via conventional methods, and its all thanks to the magic of LG’s advanced technology.

    Shelly Plus Smoke – Smart Smoke Alarm w/ Wi-Fi & Bluetooth Connectivity

    Then, for homeowners looking to get into Smart Home products or even looking to upgrade their Smart Home level of security indoors, why not start the year with simple Smart Home solution like a smart smoke alarm. While the smart smoke alarm market has been seeing quite the competition with options from Google Nest and First Alert currently being rated as the best that are currently available, those options still come at a fairly expensive cost.

    For a more affordable and still very capable option of a smart smoke alarm, you could simply go with the newly-released Shelly Plus Smoke. This smart battery-powered photoelectric smoke alarm is integrated with both sound and light indicators (alarms), is capable of automatically sending homeowners a smartphone notification whenever it detects smoke by utilizing Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Connectivity, and even works with Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Home Assistant, and a few other Smart Home platforms, all thanks to its open APIs. This ultimately allows homeowners to create scenes that can do things like unlocking their front door, starting their AC, turning off power to appliances, as well as turning on all the lights if smoke is detected.
