BEDFORD HEIGHTS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CES® is what consumer electronics companies work toward all year long. As the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow, the products featured are no less than impressive. This year, a lot of products haven't quite made it to market yet, so we're ready to share with you three smart home products that are actually available to purchase now.


1. Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator

When this product originally debuted, the goal was essentially to create a refrigerator with a touchscreen on the front with a main purpose of usefulness and entertainment. With the newest model, more customizable elements and a convenience factor were added to the mix. For example, the calendar feature on the touchscreen allows you to sync your other calendars and then also program exactly what you want to see - so you can view Mom's birthday dinner instead of your noon business meeting. In addition to the calendar feature, the refrigerator also provides a way to showcase photos, check the weather, mirror your Samsung TV and more. The appliance is available now at stores such as The Home Depot, Appliances Connection and US Appliance for just under $3,000.

2. Keen Home Smart Vent

Using the design to regulate your home's temperature room by room, the Smart Vent seeks to increase comfort and reduce energy costs. The smart element to the vents is intelligently distributing the airflow within your home. So those pesky cold or hot spots in each room? Gone. According to the Keen Home website, room-by-room zoning can reduce energy usage and costs by up to 30 percent. This smart home product is available on sites such as build.com, Amazon.com and Keen Home's website.
