Our Philips Hue Festavia review looks at the smartest string lights around, especially when it comes to customizing your Christmas tree.
The Amazon Echo Show 15 puts Alexa on a wall and gives you a big screen with helpful widgets, but the sound could be better.
The Eufy Edge Security System uses AI for smart detection and the wireless eufyCam 3 security cameras can recharge using their integrated solar panels.
The Blink Mini home security camera is a good option, but it’s not the best value for indoor cameras.
The second Amazon Echo Dot with Clock ($60) is as useful as the first edition of the versatile Alexa smart speaker, plus the LED display looks great on the updated round profile.
The Amazon Echo Dot with Clock (5th Gen) is upgraded with a multi-functional display, better sound performance and other new perks that can enhance your smart home.
The third-gen Nest Learning Thermostat sports a bigger display, comes with more temperature sensors and works well with other smart home gadgets.
Though there are couple trade-offs, the Shark Ion Robot R85 is an excellent Wi-Fi-connected robot vacuum that combines good performance with an affordable price.
The Shark IQ R101AE robot vacuum has a self-emptying bin and costs less than a comparable Roomba, but it’s not as good a cleaner.
The Realspace Smart Electric Height-Adjustable Desk is a smart standing desk with drawers for storage and built-in USB ports for charging your devices.
The Switchbot Lock can turn a dumb lock you can’t remove into a smart lock that can be controlled remotely.
The Amazon Echo Dot was the best smart speaker for less than $50, though it's since been replaced. Plus, the $60 Echo Dot with Clock is still the better value.
The Echo Studio is Amazon's best-sounding Alexa speaker yet, offering impressive bass, but it's not quite the best in its class.
With a nicer design and vastly improved audio, the third-generation Echo Dot is Amazon's best, cheapest speaker yet.
Amazon Key solves a very specific problem for a very specific group of people: Amazon Prime customers who worry enough about stolen packages that they'll allow a delivery person to unlock their front door and drop the parcel off right inside their home.
The Google Nest Mini smart speaker boasts better sound and Google Assistant machine learning than the first-generation Home Mini.
While its interface could be improved, the CyberQ Cloud did an excellent job at regulating a smoker's temperature and letting me manage it from afar.
This low-cost fingerprint smart lock has all of the basic features you might need in a discreet package.
The Nest Doorbell (battery) sets the standard for what a video doorbell should be, and what it should offer consumers.
The budget-friendly iRobot Roomba 694 offers good performance as a non-mapping robot vacuum, but the real standout is the iRobot Home app.
