The Pocket-lint Gadget Awards will take place at the end of November and that means we will soon be finding out the winners of the 14 categories ranging from smartphones to smarthome. Each category has been narrowed down to between five and seven nominees from the hundreds of devices we have reviewed over the last 12 months.

As always, we have been running a series of features 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 here we are looking at the Best Smarthome Device nominees.

The smarthome category was introduced to the Pocket-lint Gadget Awards in 2014 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. Amazon announced Echo and its Alexa assistant to the UK, while Dyson introduced its version of a robot vacuum cleaner

There can only be one winner though so click here to see the Awards nominees for 2016'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 13th 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 13 select categories.

Winners will be announced at the exclusive event in London on 23 November in association with EE. For now, keep an eye on the EE Pocket-lint Gadget Awards 2016 hub for all the latest on how the voting works, who the elite judges are and the EE Pocket-lint Gadget Awards shortlist.
