Cameras, smart locks, entry and motion sensors — the Simplisafe Home Security System keeps you covered the inside out. Its collection of devices doesn't just alert you of an intruder, they also have 24/7 Professional Monitoring that contacts to the police. They provide eyewitness accounts including the invader's whereabouts, if they're armed, and what they're up to, resulting in a dispatch that is 3.5 times faster. But their security isn't only about intruders. The system can also protect your home from other threats like fires, carbon monoxide, and water damage.

Living an active lifestyle doesn't have to mean protecting your iPhone with an unsightly, thick case. Nomad's Active Rugged option uses a DuPont polycarbonate frame, rubber TPE bumper, and microfiber lining to swaddle and protect your device. Its back, meanwhile, is covered in naturally-tanned water-resistant leather from Heinen in Germany. It's both more sophisticated than most plastic options and more resistant to scratches and scuffs than typical leather. The case is fully Qi-compatible for wireless charging, has a thick bumper to protect against drops up to 6 feet, and has reinforced speaker ports that double as lanyard attachment points.
