Best Smart Thermostat: Nest Learning Thermostat
A smart thermostat is the perfect place to begin because it’s a product that literally pays for itself. The Nest Learning Thermostat in particular learns from your patterns and monitors your presence so it can constantly make adjustments to your heating and AC systems. You end up saving hundreds of dollars each year on your energy bill as a result… and it’s also pretty cool to be able to adjust the temperature in your home right from your smartphone or tablet.
Best Smart Lighting: Philips Hue
Smart LED light bulbs are also great for smart home newbies because they’re so versatile but they’re also easy to install. If you can screw in a light bulb, you can install a smart light… literally. The Philips Hue A19 LED Smart Bulb Starter Kit is a great way to get a feel for what Philips Hue has to offer. It includes two color bulbs and a hub, so you can control them with the Hue app or even with your voice thanks to Alexa and Google Assistant integration.
Best Home Security Camera: Wyze Cam Pan
People in search of a home security camera that checks every conceivable box but still manages to be affordable will find that the Wyze Cam Pan is the best option currently available. For a fraction of what big-name brands charge for a normal 1080p security cam, the Wyze Cam Pan adds the ability to pan and zoom remotely from the app, and the camera can be set to automatically track movement and record video. Despite the shockingly low price point, the Wyze Cam Pan includes an unprecedented 14 days of cloud storage for free.
