Don't-Miss Home tech Stories

D-Link DCS-933L Wi-Fi camera

D-Link Day/Night Network Camera review: Delivers the basics for cheap

This IP camera is inexpensive enough, but you’ll need a D-Link router to take full advantage.

D-Dlink DSP-W215 smart plug

D-Link Wi-Fi Smart Plug review: Exceedingly basic home control

This controller will turn lights and other devices on and off—and that’s about it.

D-Link DCS-S150 motion detector

D-Link Wi-Fi Motion Sensor review: Wi-Fi wasn't made for this

Reliance on power-hungry Wi-Fi restricts where you can locate this sensor.

wallyhome system

WallyHome review: Sniffs out water leaks all over your home

Low-power sensors, useful notifications, and peace of mind for homeowners: not a bad package.

neato botvac 85 blue girl

Neato Botvac 80 review: Better than Roomba, especially for pet owners

Two dogs and a sheepskin throw rug are no match for this powerhouse robot vac. Oh, and it also has lasers.

iDevices Kitchen Thermometer Mini

iDevices Kitchen Thermometer Mini review: Now we're cooking

It's not exactly Rosie the Robot preparing meals for you, but you'll be able to walk away from the kitchen and get a push notification when the meat is at the perfect temperature. Not too shabby.

Samsung SmartCam HD Pro review: Not so pro

Frustrations with the mobile and web apps overshadow everything we like about this Dropcam competitor.

Piper review: This security camera and Z-Wave hub has room to grow

Piper's wide-angle camera and built-in sensors are great for renters, but I had some issues with missing notifications.

Belkin Crock-Pot Smart Slow Cooker with WeMo review: Not so hot

It works just fine. But I get more use out of my dumb slow cooker's extra features, missing from this smartphone-controlled version.

awox striimlight primary

AwoX StriimLight review: Solid audio streaming—from your lamp?!

It's not the world's most powerful Bluetooth speaker, but it never needs charging because it's screwed into your lamp. Yes, this speaker is a light bulb.

Flower Power

Flower Power review: This gardening gadget helps your plants thrive

Flower Power gives your plants a voice, so they can tell you what they need. And hopefully you'll stop killing every plant that comes into your home.

Viper Home Starter Kit review: It's the software, stupid

The Viper Home Starter Kit is nearly effortless to set up. Well. The hardware is at least.
