You've got the latest phone, the newest computer, and your car can tell you how to get to your destination, but with all this tech, one part of your life has been left in the dark — your home!  Kristina Guerrero has three smart gadgets that will automate your house.

1.  Philips Hue Smart Lights

Hue is easy to set up — just plug in, download the app and go. You can use the app to dim your lights, put them on a schedule, or even turn them on and off while you're away. Pick up the kit for $70.

2.  WeMo Smart Switch

This smart outlet is about $40 — once you download the app and plug it in, you can control anything plugged into it with your smartphone. You can also put things like your coffee maker on a schedule, so you will have a fresh pot of joe waiting for you.

3.  Kwikset Kevo Smart Lock

This makes your smartphone your house key. Lock or unlock your doors from anywhere. The lock runs about $180, but being able to control your locks remotely may be worth it.
