Our latest smart home week features in association with Ring

The three key ecosystems

Amazon Alexa

The undisputed queen of the smart home, Alexa shows no sign of relinquishing her throne – especially as she can now be found in a connected toilet. There are plenty of ways Alexa-enabled tech can make your world run more smoothly.

Google Assistant

So much more than a voice assistant for your smartphone, Google Assistant powers many of the latest and greatest gadgets, and if that’s not enough its Stuff award-winning smart display and whizzy Wi-Fi mesh network could be the connected cherry on top.

Apple Home

Apple wants to make your home work without opening countless apps. It also claims to place great importance on your privacy and demands devices on its platform adhere to greater levels of encryption. In fact, the only person crashing this house party is Siri.
