Segway, known for its mobility devices, is releasing a new autonomous mower. The Navimow i Series is available starting at $999. To get this in Apple Home, we'll have to wait to see if Matter or Apple adds robotic mowers to their lists of compatible devices.

Belkin's previously-announced Qi2-enabled 3-in-1 charger is now shipping. Available in both black and white, it retails for $149.

Also in the news, the CSA has announced a new certification program for smart home devices. This new certification focuses on security and will only be applied to products that meet a certain threshold of security features.

After the news, we jumped into gardening, discussing different approaches for smart watering.

To wrap the episode, we go hands-on with the Twelve South Butterfly. This is a 2-in-1 MagSafe travel charger with a vegan leather charging surface and aluminum exterior.
