    Promising review: "I like the three settings since I like my water room temperature. The night-light is very convenient. I also like how you can cut the power on and off for the hot/ cold water.

    Promising review: "I love technology and this was such a simple interface to get set up and attached to the wall. The video quality is pretty good. Motion and sound sensors are sufficient.

    Price: $27.88

    3. An electric fan-forced heater for the winter months. It'll provide you warmth without breaking the bank on the heating bill.

    Promising review: "I have 6 of these- yes 6 and they keep my entire home warm. My heating bill is about $200 a month running these and that's not bad at all.

It's a powerful little fan heater. Love it." —Msparker
