What makes a product great for apartment dwellers?
There are lots of great smart home products out there, but why did we recommend these picks for those who live in apartments?
Installation—Living in an apartment means that you can’t always permanently mount or install your new favorite gadgets. All of our picks in this list can be easily uninstalled without leaving a mess.
Portability—Housing situations can change on a dime, so it’s best if all of your favorite tech devices are easily portable from your old home to your new home. Our selections can all be stowed away relatively easily.
Small Footprint—In a rental, space is at a premium. These products can help you to get the most out of your smart home environment without taking up valuable real estate on your TV stand or on your living room table.
