Nest Protect 2.0
REVIEW

Nest Protect 2.0 ( 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 Security Camera
REVIEW

Myfox Security Camera

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

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.

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.

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.

Oco HD Wi-Fi Camera
REVIEW

Oco HD Wi-Fi Camera

The Oco HD Wi-Fi Camera is an OK midpriced security camera that manages to differentiate itself from the identical form factor of the ArcSoft Simplicam by way of its adaptable video stream and lower cloud subscription fees.

Anova Precision Cooker
REVIEW

Anova Precision Cooker ( Red)

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.
