The Pocket-lint Gadget Awards are just over a week away and that means we will soon be finding out the winners of the 12 categories ranging from smartphones to smarthome. Each category has been narrowed down to just five nominees from the hundreds of devices we have reviewed during the last 12 months.

As always, we have been running a series of features over the last couple of weeks, detailing the nominees within each category in a little more detail in order to help you with your voting decision. You can find all the previous features in our Awards hub, but today we are looking at the Best Smarthome Device nominees.

The smarthome category was introduced to the Pocket-lint Gadget Awards last year but things have certainly become a lot more interesting since then. Devices are now more advanced and while there is still a way to go before a smarthome is second nature, there are some great products in this category this year. Philips added Siri support to its Hue smart lighting, while Neato introduced an app-controlled robot vacuum cleaner. 

There can only be one winner though so click here to see the Awards nominees for 2015's Best Smarthome Device in a little more detail to help you make your mind up about which one should get your vote.

Voting in the 12th annual EE Pocket-lint Awards is now open so you can let us know which one of these great devices you think should win the Best Smarthome device award for this year and give us your verdict on all the other tech across the 11 select categories.

Winners will be announced at the exclusive event in London on 26 November in association with EE. For now, keep an eye on the EE Pocket-lint Gadget Awards 2015 hub for all the latest on how the voting works, who the elite judges are and the EE Pocket-lint Gadget Awards shortlist.
