Don't-Miss Home tech Stories

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 pro hd

Samsung SmartCam HD Pro review: Not so pro

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

piper primary

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 door sensor red

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.

tcp bulbsremote 2

Connected by TCP review: Smart lighting 101

Upgrade the easy way: Add super simple app-controlled lighting to your love shack.

Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat review: Call it the anti-Nest

As colorful as Honeywell's programmable thermostat is, it's just not very pretty.

Dropcam Pro review: Enhance your Wi-Fi video like a crime-scene investigator

Catching bad guys (or bad dogs) in random acts of mischief has never been easier.

Review: Come rain or shine, Netatmo's Weather Station provides a personalized forecast

There are thousands of weather apps out there, but they can't tell you what the temperature is at your house specifically.
