The 2020 Consumer Electronics Show introduced a slew of new and improved technology that will make the everyday experience of living in a home much easier and efficient.

From mirrors to trash cans, practically any everyday home item can become a smart device.

Barry is Smart Home Certified, and has earned the Smart Home certification.

At January’s 2020 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the technology industry’s largest annual showcase, companies touted thousands of products intended to make homes more connected.

Improvements in voice control—the ability to operate devices by speaking a command—was a big theme.

The market for digital voice assistants, such as Amazon’s Alexa and Google Home, will include 8 billion products by 2023, predicts Juniper Research.

Here are a range of products that were debuted from 4,500 exhibitors at CES to give you an idea of the gadgetry coming to smart homes.
