This is the smart thermostat I recommend for most people. Here’s my detailed review and install experience.
This is the smartest, most beautiful light switch/smart home hub out there. I have these in my home and they can act as video intercoms too!
It’s hard to find a better deal on four smart plugs. In my review, I found these to be highly reliable. I use these in my house too.
I have two earlier versions of this smart lock in my home. They are 100% reliable and safe.
I have a version of this dimmer which I absolutely love (my review). You can’t go wrong with Shelly.
Another affordable smart home light switch, this time from TP-Link. I have one in my home that works great (my review).
I have a couple of these bulbs (my review) and they perform great! An inexpensive alternative to Philips Hue bulbs.
I have some of these indoors and outdoors. They are my brightest smart LEDs. They have local control capabilities.
In case you are in need of a smart floodlight. These will do great and have the same brightness as other LIFX bulbs.
This is the Aeotec version of the Samsung SmartThings V3 Hub (same hardware/firmware) that I recommend.
The Echo Dot is a great smart speaker, but it also can double as a smart home hub for most people.
Hubitat is a great smart home hub, especially if you like local control. It has a vibrant and helpful community.
The Broadlink RM4 Mini adds infrared (IR) control to your smart home. It can learn and send any IR code (my review).
Bond can control RF and IR devices. Great for integrating things like RF ceiling fans, fireplaces, and blinds into your smart home.
