Although the rollout and distribution of the vaccine is currently underway throughout the country, there’s still no reason to let your guard down. Proper safety precautions such as wearing masks, social distancing and frequent handwashing are still needed to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus.

Even with more and more people getting vaccinated, there’s no harm in staying extra vigilant to make sure you and your family are safe from infection. So if you’re looking for new ways to protect your home from COVID-19, here’s a list of high-tech disinfection devices that are currently on the market: 

PhoneSoap 3

Think about how often you use your smartphone during the day. All that tapping, scrolling, and swiping makes our phones extremely exposed to foreign pathogens.  

Enter PhoneSoap 3, a special phone container equipped with a UV-C light. Simply put your phone inside after each use, and it’ll give your phone a thorough disinfection, eliminating harmful bacteria, germs, and other pathogens within a ten-minute cycle. After removing your phone, the PhoneSoap will then run an extra five-minute sanitation cycle on itself, to make sure it’s safe and clean for the next use. 

The Apollo

The Apollo emits a UV-C light to disinfect and sanitize a space within a 36-foot radius. All you need to do is place the light in a room, set a time for disinfection, and switch it on to queue up the disinfection cycle, so it will only start after you’ve left the room.

The Apollo will then disinfect the space for the duration of your chosen cycle. Once complete, it automatically switches off so you can come back to a safe, disinfected room. 

Shuzon Sanitizing Doormat

Stop dangerous pathogens right at your doorstep with the Shuzon Sanitizing Doormat, which cleans and disinfects the soles of your shoes from any harmful particles you’ve picked up outside your home. 

Just place the doormat at your home’s entryway and add a household disinfectant to the mat’s wet side. The soft foam layer will help distribute the disinfectant evenly on the base of your shoes. Family members and visitors can then step onto it to get rid of pathogens, and use the dry side to dry off both shoes before entering your home.


The UVCloset is equipped with UV-C lights designed to eliminate viruses, bacteria, molds, and harmful pathogens. The sterilization home closet is made of light Mylar material, and can be easily placed near your home’s entry points, including doorways, garages, and mudrooms. 

In addition to clothes, you can use the UVCloset for gadgets, accessories, delivery packages, and other high-touch items.
