Honeywell Lyric Thermostat Second Generation

It may be version 2.0, but Honeywell still has a lot of kinks to work out with this temperamental HomeKit-compatible thermostat.

Philips Hue White and Color Ambience Starter Kit A19
REVIEW

Philips Hue White and Color Ambience Starter Kit A19

Philips Hue's LEDs are still the color-changing bulbs to beat, but they're still awfully expensive -- and the competition is catching up quickly. Apple HomeKit integration is a big step forward for the software, but it's disappointing that the hardware didn't get more of an upgrade, as well.
