Emerson Sensi

If you don't want your thermostat learning your habits over time, but still want some app-enabled controls, the $160 Sensi Wi-Fi Programmable Thermostat by Emerson fits the bill. You do all of the programming yourself -- and because of that, it's one of the most affordable smart thermostats on the market. Plus, it works with Amazon's Alexa-enabled voice control products -- and that's something worth talking about.

Google Home

A $130 smart speaker that talks back, Google Home is a lot like the Amazon Echo Dot, only it includes the Google Assistant and thus has more conversational awareness. You'll still be able to control your smart home, but Home also helps you plan your route to work using Google Maps, and can play music or videos on any Chromecast streamer.

Nanoleaf Aurora

The triangular Nanoleaf Aurora panels are fully color-changeable, and they'll work with Apple HomeKit (and thus, Siri), as well. The nine-panel starter kit costs $200 -- roughly what you'll pay for a Philips Hue starter kit with three color-changing bulbs.

LuDela Smart Candle

The $100 Ludela Smart Candle is a real candle with a real flame. Well, it's a crowdfunded gadget, so it's probably real. But you can light it with the tap of a button. It's totally, probably safe. Actually, with extra safety features that extinguish the wick in case of tipping or other hazards, Ludela might actually be safer than a standard candle. It's a good fit for the atmosphere-loving family member with a fondness for cool novelties.

You can single press, double press, or long press, and a few big name smart home platforms -- such as Lifx, Philips Hue and Insteon -- will be ready to be pushed around when the Logitech button launches this fall.
