Smart Home Central

Ring

We've created Smart Home Central to bring together all of the Smart Home content available across The Tech Buyer's Guru. That includes reviews, buyer's guides, how-to guides, and news from the cutting edge of tech! We have plenty of content for you to sink your teeth into, including lots of experience with long-term testing of gear in the real world of a real home!

Here are just some of the categories of products we've tested:

  • Smart Hubs
  • Smart Voice Controllers
  • Smart Locks
  • Smart Alarms
  • Smart Thermostats
  • Smart Cameras
  • Smart Light Bulbs and Switches

Now, truth be told, we're not sold on every Smart Home product. For example, despite testing numerous alarms, we've yet to find one that we consider truly "smart," so we're not including one in our guides as of yet. We're also less enthusiastic about home automation based on motion sensors than we are on scheduling and voice control. We just think the former can create more trouble than it's worth, although there are certainly specific applications where it makes sense.

Our goal is to make sure that whatever Smart Home products you choose, you'll know all their features and shortcomings right from the start!
