The LG Smart Security Solution packs a lot into a surprisingly small device. Equipped with a camera, environmental monitor, siren, and a host of partnerships with companies like SmartThings and August, this security hub is looking impressive. LG Security can also work in concert with ADT's new non-contractual home monitoring.
The Ezviz Mini Cube is a small and affordable outdoor camera. For only $110 (roughly £75 or AU$155), you won't find much competition in the same price range.
Ezviz is expanding its lineup of affordable cameras at CES with another option: The Ezviz Mini IQ. A little pricier than the Ezviz Mini or the Mini Cube, the Mini IQ includes a Z-Wave radio transmitter, so smart home integration will be more of a possibility in the future.

The Securifi Almond 3 combines a Wi-Fi router with a smart home hub and security monitor. This all-in-one hub will be available this summer for $120 (around AU$170 or £80), and depending on its performance, it could be a helpful solution to a fragmented smart home.
HomeAdvisor, a free app with an expanding roster of collaborators, will find the appropriate service person should your smart home detect a problem. If your home senses a leak, for instance, a plumber will call you within minutes. And it even works with Amazon Echo's voice control software, Alexa.
The Brinks Array is notable for two reasons: first, it connects with your Wi-Fi, so you don't need a hub to use it. Second, any light -- not just sunlight -- will charge it, so batteries shouldn't be much of a concern.
