Advicesisters.com loves iHome. The iHome brand is synonymous with lifestyle and tech items that really help consumers make life easier, more successful, and more satisfying.
There were many innovative items at the iHome holiday editor preview. We’ve already featured the new, innovative, iHome Aquio water bottle in our early December Luxury Gift Guide .
For this feature, we’re suggesting two iHome items bringing joy to all with Multi-tasking/Color-Changing Gifts. Both have the featured iHome Smart Button… and all sorts of amazing bells and whistles.
Multi-Tasking Clock Radio:
Clock radios used to just tell time and wake you up with the radio, but not anymore! The iHome iBT297 App-enhanced Bluetooth Color Changing Dual Alarm Clock Radio (with USB Charging, Voice Control and Customizable Smart Button ) is mighty and much more, and it’s just $70.00.
Yes, it is a clock radio with an easy to see lighted digital readout, FM radio, and dual alarms. That’s just for starters.
Make it match your mood or decor by changing the background color of the case with 6 distinct colors, cycle through multiple colors, and even sync them with alarms, All are fully dimmable.
This multi-tasking clock radio also charges most smartphones and tablets via a USB port (you supply the cord).
But that’s not all:
This little round powerhouse about the size of a toddler’s beach ball, can sync and play Spotify, Apple Music, and iHeart Radio, You’ll need an app (each iHome device seems to access a different one–this one uses iHome Enhance (for ios or android) –we used the Melody app too. Set up a smart music playlist with one press.. and a lot more.
Press and activate the Voice Control and you’ll get Siri or Google Assistant to help you make your day better, or use whichever way you use your electronic assistant(s).
Use this with your iHome plugs or smart home devices thanks to IFTTT integration to help you control lights and thermostats from popular makers.
Setup and Bluetooth was a piece of cake, although to access all of the features and app items, you need a little bit of patience--and well worth it!
ihome Stereo Speaker with 360 Light Show
Maybe you don’t think you need another Bluetooth speaker, but you’ve never had one like this!
Two light shows!
The iHome iBT751 Bluetooth Color Changing Rechargeable Stereo Speaker (srp. $80) features 360 degree LED color. There’s a front light show that pulses with color and designs to your music. The unique Rear Projection Lighting radiates light on walls and ceilings thereby offering you a complete light show!
Primary front lights offer: Slow Fade, Fast Fade, Pulse, Multi-color, and OFF
Rear Projection lights offer: Pulse to Music, Breathe, Fast Breathe, and OFF
The sound is clear and well balanced, and amazingly good for a speaker that is about the size of a small cross body handbag. Even at high volumes needed at a party, this Stereo Speaker will blast out great sound.
As with our suggestion for the multi-tasking, color-changing clock radio above, this one allows you to work with iHome Control Smart Plugs and other smart devices thanks to IFTTT integration.
This amazing speakerphone paired easily with our smartphones but also with the Melody app in literally, seconds so we could use our voice to request content from iHeart Radio, Spotify and more.
The iHome smart button also gives you the option to access Siri and Google Assistant.
The unit charges via a USB cord, and the estimated battery life: up to 22 hours.
It seems that iHome devices all multi-task so well there’s nothing more to. Take your time to learn all these devices can do and therefore you’ll get the most out of these amazing tools to make life so much better at modest cost.
