the ambient

The smart home has become the most exciting space in technology – yet no-one has been covering the space in the manner it deserves. That’s where The Ambient comes in.

The sister site to Wareable, The Ambient is designed to be the first and last word in the smart home. We’re dedicated to demystifying this new world of connected home technology.

The Ambient is here to test and review the best gear on the market, explain how to get your smart home up and running, and show you how to get the most from it. And, perhaps most importantly, we’ll be charting what’s next.

So why The Ambient? The rise of smart speakers and assistants such as Amazon Alexa, Siri through Apple HomeKit and Google Assistant have proven themselves to be the missing link to truly smart homes. These devices have brought ambient computing – the idea of having AI all around us – to the masses.

The Ambient is a champion of good home tech. Experiences that look good, feel good and add to your home. It doesn’t have to be connected – we’re championing any way technology can make our life better.
