One of everyone's concerns when going on vacation is safety. Nothing is more unpleasant than having to go back or find that someone has entered our house. A few weeks ago we tried Panasonic Smart Home and now we are going to see the new features of Myfox, the French smart home security company, which we talked about a long time ago.
We are immersed in the Christmas decoration, the little gifts, the costumes of the children's function and the social events, which are piled up in these dates.

Last week we attended the presentation of Myfox Spain in one of my favorite hotels in Madrid, the Only You, which we already presented at the time, since it is decorated by the studio of Lázaro Rosa-Violán and is a real wonder.

Although Roomba is the reference brand in the market, there are many similar vacuum robots in appearance and functions. What was strange is that a brand of vacuum cleaners as famous as Dyson would still have launched one, but the wait has been worth it, because Dyson's first robot vacuum will not leave you indifferent.
The summary of the best in Xataka Smart Home this week is full of interesting things, such as the answer to the question: Why does the WiFi not reach my room, if the house is not so big?

Summer arrives and with it the good weather and high temperatures and in many places people begin to think of fans and air conditioning, so necessary on hot days both at home and in commercial establishments and offices.
