From smart locks to smart lights, we've reviewed all kinds of connected home products this year. This category is growing rapidly, but here are our favorites so far.

Myfox's camera is pretty good, although there are better options out there -- and the whole system is seriously overpriced. Don't get it.
Canary is packed with solid hardware, but it doesn't add up to a device we'd want to depend on.

Honeywell is unveiling a home security system complete with voice control capabilities and a touchscreen display at CES 2015.
