Smart Gadgets For The Home, Office and Travel

Smart cameras that follow you around. Smart suitcases that roll alongside you. Smart shelves that automatically reorder office supplies.

These were among the 10 hottest new smart gadgets and devices of 2019, some of which made their first splash at CES in Las Vegas at the beginning of the year. While many of them are in the smart home category, the items on the list also checked off the travel, content creation and office boxes.

When it comes to the smart home in particular, demand is still strong. IDC forecasts the global market for smart home devices will grow 23.5 percent to nearly 815 million device shipments over the previous year. Growth will then continue in the double digits, at an annual rate of 14.4 percent over the next five years, to reach 1.39 billion devices shipped in 2023.

Among the factors driving smart home growth: increased competition that is driving down prices, more and more people using smart assistants, and greater awareness of the practical reasons for using smart home devices, such as saving on energy and money, according to IDC.

What follows is a look at the 10 hottest new smart gadgets and devices of 2019.
