From smart locks to smart lights, here's the best in smart home tech.
While the Wink Hub has some design and usability kinks to work out, its affordability and versatility make it a very desirable option for whole-home automation.
Despite a few usability quirks, Belkin's WeMo Insight Switch only improves on the simple, low-risk formula that made Belkin's original programmable WeMo Switch so appealing as a home automation starting point.
The Belkin Network USB Hub provides a simple way for multiple users to share USB devices wirelessly. It's a must for any multiuser household.
Plagued by issues, the Linksys EA6900 Smart WiFi Wireless AC Router AC1900 is only as good as a single-band router and hence not worth its premium price.

The Western Digital My Net N900 Central makes an excellent all-in-one wireless and network storage option for home and mobile users.
Belkin's NetCam HD+ is a fantastic option for budget-minded DIY security enthusiasts, but you'll need to pay the monthly fee to get the most from this entry-level IP camera.
The Belkin WeMo Maker Kit acts as a home automation hub of sorts.
