The trouble with many smart doorbells and camera products is that they need to be hard-wired to your home's electrics. The Notifi solves this issue by throwing in an LED light bulb that powers its camera instead. The gadget's ringer is wireless, too, so you don't have to be an electrician to install everything.
We caught sight of the BloomSky weather sensor at CES 2015 as well. This uniquely styled smart device is designed to act as a personal and hyper-local weather station able to detect meteorological conditions in real time right from your back yard.
Convert your abode's old HVAC vents into intelligent ones with the Keen Home Smart Vent. Equipped with sensors to detect temperature and pressure conditions within a room, the device is designed to push heat to where it's needed most. Conversely, the smart vent will shut down airflow to regions that don't require special attention.

A physical gateway box and smart-home software platform rolled up into one device, the Yetu strives to merge multiple connected domestic products and standards under one unifying interface.

The Bolt also uses a wireless Bluetooth radio to link directly to Android and iOS handsets.
With a sticker price of $99, half the cost of similar standalone security units, the Guardzilla is certainly compelling. Other goodies the gadget promises are geofencing, motion alerts, local storage, night vision and two-way audio.

According to Honeywell, everything will be wrapped up under the Lyric Home Security System moniker and commanded via a central hub or Android and iOS mobile app.
Oregon Scientific says its DreamScience gizmo will help nudge you toward enjoying a better night's slumber. Specifically the orb-shaped alarm clock gently lowers its volume over time for maximum relaxation. The company also claims the DreamScience can produce "Brainwave Embedded Sounds," essentially audio triggers that prime targeted regions of the brain for wake-up and sleep.
Now here's a smart lock that truly looks like it's straight out of the future. As its name implies, the Yale Real Living NFC Deadbolt harnesses NFC (near field communication) to allow smartphones to unlock the gadget with virtual keys. Not only that, you have the option to share these keys with others, plus monitor and limit their use. And as with any smart lock worth its salt, you can open or close it through its mobile app.
Think your LED light source is advanced? Well, think again. The Alba LED from Stack Lighting uses a BR30 floodlight format, flaunts sensors to adjust brightness to ambient conditions and boasts tweakable color temperature.
