REVIEW

Canary Smart Home Security Device ( white)

Canary is packed with solid hardware, but it doesn't add up to a device we'd want to depend on.

Pure Imagination Perfect Drink
REVIEW

Pure Imagination Perfect Drink

Perfect Drink is a fun novelty splurge for your home bar, but it isn't a mixology must-have by any stretch.

Staples Connect Hub (D-Link Edition)
REVIEW

Staples Connect Hub ( D-Link Edition)

Staples Connect is a reliable, easy-to-use platform, and the new D-Link hub is undeniably better than the original. If you already own devices that'll work with it, the new hub makes a lot of sense, but if you're starting your smart home from scratch, consider waiting to see what happens with Apple HomeKit and SmartThings 2.0.

Anova Precision Cooker (white)
REVIEW

Anova Precision Cooker ( white)

We loved the original Anova, and this one cooks just as well for less cash. Underwhelming smarts aside, it's a great sous vide starting point.

Osram Lightify LED Starter Kit
REVIEW

Osram Lightify LED Starter Kit

These aren't the cheapest smart bulbs you can buy, but Osram's Lightify LED Starter Kit is more affordable than Philips or Belkin's, and arguably more feature-rich, too. As a legitimate competitor, it deserves consideration.

Saffron 40W Replacement LED
REVIEW

Saffron 40W Replacement LED

Unless you insist on bulbs that look as traditional as possible, there's no reason to choose Saffron over stronger offerings from Philips, Cree and Osram.

Poly-Control Danalock
REVIEW

Poly-Control Danalock

The Danalock's many inconsistencies make it less convenient than using an actual key, and therefore, very tough to recommend.

Philips 100W Equivalent Soft White (2700K) A21 Dimmable LED Light Bulb
REVIEW

Philips 100W Equivalent Soft White A21 Dimmable LED Light Bulb ( 2700K)

Unless you find it on sale, this likable Philips LED can't quite offer the value of its competitors.

Cree 100-watt Replacement LED Bulb (Soft White)
REVIEW

Cree 100-watt Replacement LED Bulb ( Soft White)

Cree's bigger, brighter LED is a very solid value, but it's not without legitimate competition.

August Smart Lock
REVIEW

August Smart Lock

We haven't seen a flawless smart lock yet, but the August Smart Lock comes closer than any of its competitors thanks to its ease of use and overall polish.
