The sauna tradition has been an important part of the Estonian culture for centuries. For Estonians, the most truthful conversations happen in the sauna.

If you want to enjoy life like Marie Antoinette (but not to die in that horrible way, of course) played by Kirsten Dunst in the movie by Sofia Coppola, to wake up every day when a maid draws the curtains, SOMA Smart Shades is made for you.

The keys have been around the world for nearly 4,000 years and we still use them. However, there is a constant problem with them – they disappear, they need to be exchanged, left to someone, and so on. So, a much better idea is to use a BLE smart lock, which you can set for your home, office, garage, or elevator. The smart lock does not require an internet connection and you can also open the doors remotely with your phone.
