Dropshipping From China: Smart Home Gadgets And Accessories
In one of our previous posts, we have already touched upon the process of selecting a product to import/dropship from China. It is surely a personal choice to make, guided by your market behavior, potential demand, import regulations and, in many cases, your passion and knowledge of the product in question.
What we’d like to do in this post is share a few ideas, that you may find interesting to look into. For instance, why we believe that importing smart home gadgets may be a good idea.
What is a smart home?
First, let’s take a closer look at what a smart home actually is. We are pretty used to the word “smart” in various contexts already: “smartphone”, “smart TV”, “smart watch” and others. We have come to understand the word “smart” as “enriched with advanced technological capabilities” and, perhaps, this is a good definition to stick to.
When it comes to a smart home, the idea behind the concept is simple: we want to leave as much work as possible up to the devices and appliances in our house – thus, giving us more freedom for other activities.
A smart home would feature a high level of automation. Actually, all our homes are pretty automated already: from garage doors that open automatically to remote controls and more. A smart home would go beyond that and feature all the latest technology, simplifying the life if its inhabitants.
As our lives are getting busier and busier, more and more people are interested in increasing the “smartness” of their homes, thus raising the demand for various smart home gadgets and accessories.
What are smart home gadgets and accessories?
Smart home gadgets come in various shapes and sizes and include smart remote controls, lighting systems, smart home locks, security and surveillance systems, air purifiers, upgraded home appliances and even light bulbs.
People are eager to follow all the recent developments in home technology and look for new ways to improve their living environment. However, home improvements can get costly and if you can find a way to provide your customers with better pricing options for improving their homes, they may thank you with an increased number of orders and a steady demand for your goods.
You may want to start with something small and slowly work your way into the niche, testing out market response.
Here are a few eye-catching products you could to get you going:
Smart Led Bulb
There are lots of variations of this gadget available. They all follow the same principle: even such a simple object as a light bulb can be interesting, multifunctional and smart. Smart LED Bulbs can be controlled over Wi-Fi, change colour, play music from your phone or tablet, come with their own applications – and, with all these functions, manage to be more energy-efficient. These light bulbs are small, easy to transport and do not come with heavy price tags (especially if you find a reliable supplier).
Bluetooth Shower Speaker
A Bluetooth shower speaker is another example of a simple gadget to enter the market with. It is lightweight, fun and affordable – and, most importantly, – something that any household can benefit from. A Bluetooth shower speaker is a waterproof speaker that will work with your smartphone or tablet and play all your favourite tracks right in the shower cabin. But it’s not only about singing in the shower – you will also be able to answer phone calls without dripping all over the bathroom in search of your phone.
