Staples Connect Hub
It's probably too early to commit to a master smart-home platform, but for basic home automation across multiple devices, Staples Connect works well -- and at $99, it's priced just right.
Belkin WeMo Insight Switch
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.
SmartThings Know and Control Your Home Kit
If you're looking for an easy and (relatively) affordable entry point into home automation, then SmartThings makes a lot of sense.
SimpliSafe Home Security Ultimate Package
Home security options are evolving rapidly, but SimpliSafe is one of our current favorites. If you want a comprehensive, easy-to-use system that features live monitoring, you'll have a hard time finding a better option at a better price.
Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Voice Control
The voice control options are extremely basic, and the price increase just doesn't match the value added. Save some cash and get the $249 model or a Nest.
Quirky Spotter Multipurpose Sensor
The potential for affordable and comprehensive home automation is there, but you're better off waiting until the kinks are worked out.
Yale Real Living Touchscreen Z-Wave Deadbolt ( Oil-Rubbed Bronze)
If you're looking for a higher level of convenience from your lock, but you don't want to pay monthly fees, then you'll want to give this deadbolt your consideration.
Nest brings crisp design and smart features -- connected and otherwise -- to the humble smoke detector. You don't absolutely need the Nest Protect, but it's fine to admit you want one.
Due to the lower monthly fees, Viper Home is a more intriguing option than Oplink if you want to add accessories like a camera and a siren. If you don't, stick with iSmartAlarm.
Quirky Pivot Power Genius
This power strip is smart, but "Genius" might be pushing it. Even though it has only one socket, for now we still prefer the Belkin WeMo Switch.
