We tested out an assortment of SmartThings-brand sensors, as well as some third-party integrations.

This $30 (£30) Arrival sensor issues an alert when you come and go.

SmartThings' $40 (£30) Multipurpose sensor keeps track of a single door, window or cabinet, letting you know when it's opened or closed.

The $50 (£45) SmartThings Outlet is similar to the Belkin WeMo Switch. It makes dumb lights, lamps and other devices smart.

Stick the $40 (£30) Motion sensor anywhere you'd like to track movement -- and receive activity-based alerts.

The $40 (£30) Water Leak sensor is another device we tested, but SmartThings connects with a bunch of third-party products, too, like Philips Hue LEDsAmazon Echo and more.
