Nest Protect
REVIEW

Nest Protect ( Second Generation, Battery, White)

No other smoke and carbon monoxide detectors available today can match the second-gen Nest Protect in terms of looks and options, making it a great buy for anyone who appreciates design and connected features.

Myfox Home Alarm
REVIEW

Myfox Home Alarm

Myfox's camera is pretty good, although there are better options out there -- and the whole system is seriously overpriced. Don't get it.

Finally Light Bulb
REVIEW

Finally Light Bulb

With a respectable but overstated quality of light, this bulb doesn't shine bright enough to impress. At $10 per bulb (more, once you factor in shipping), it's a poor value compared to what you'll find in the lighting aisle.

Neurio Home Intelligence
REVIEW

Neurio Home Intelligence

If you simply want to review your energy consumption in real-time, look no further than Neurio. But, Belkin and startup Ecoisme are expected to offer similar products soon (that promise to do more than Neurio), so I'd hold off if you're on the fence.

Netatmo Welcome
REVIEW

Netatmo Welcome

Netatmo still needs work, but it breaks new ground with facial recognition and shows enough prowess with that feature to be worth a look for anyone interested in cutting edge camera tech.

Nest Cam
REVIEW

Nest Cam

Given that Nest Cam and Dropcam Pro are pretty similar, it doesn't make a lot of sense for existing users to replace their Pro. But, budding DIYers searching for a high-res live streaming camera really can't beat Nest Cam.

Ikea 1000L Ledare LED
REVIEW

Ikea 1000L Ledare LED

Though not quite as competitive as the 600L version was last year, the 1000L Ledare LED holds its own -- and in some categories, it's a standout. If you're comfortable in the middle ground between the 60W and 75W levels, it's worth picking up.

Chamberlain 1-1/4 HPS Wi-Fi Garage Door Opener
REVIEW

Chamberlain 1-1/4 HPS Wi-Fi Garage Door Opener

The Chamberlain Wi-Fi Garage Door Opener is a feat to install but is a worthwhile way for those with outdated garage systems to gain a foothold in the connected home.

Lutron Caséta Wireless Lighting Starter Kit
REVIEW

Lutron Caséta Wireless Lighting Starter Kit

As the first retail-ready HomeKit product, Lutron's kit is just the beginning of Siri-integrated smart home control, but it works so well that I can easily recommend it today for any iOS users interested in plug-in lighting and dimmer products.

GE Bright Stik LED
REVIEW

GE Bright Stik LED ( 3-pack)

At $10 for a three-pack, the Bright Stik LED is a compelling value pick in the lighting aisle.
