Smarter home. Better life. Lots of gadgets make claims of completing home duties faster, but only a few fit flawlessly into your daily routine. Each year, we test hundreds of connected devices for kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms and backyards. We review gadgets that respond to “Hey, Google” and“Alexa” and that are built by trusted companies like August, iRobot, Nanoleaf, Ring, Nest, and Philips. Whether it’s connected doorbells, powerful robot vacuums, streaming security cameras, versatile lighting accessories, capable smart ovens, or the best connected barbecues to fire up ribs on a brilliant Sunday afternoon—we know what tech makes your comfy home even more cozy.
