We had been very excited when Cync (previously C by GE) unveiled a line of Matter-ready sensible dwelling merchandise throughout CES 2022. And now that Cync has launched its new sensible bulbs, you may lastly purchase the complete Matter-ready lineup.
For readability, the Matter sensible dwelling normal will break down limitations between sensible dwelling manufacturers. Gadgets supporting the usual will achieve compatibility, even when they had been beforehand unique to Google Assistant, HomeKit, Alexa, or Zigbee ecosystems.
Almost a Dozen Sensible Bulbs
Cync went completely bonkers with its new sensible bulbs. There are 11 choices to select from, together with recessed lights, ornamental lights, and bulbs that value simply $12. Oh, and none of those bulbs require a hub!
You’ve a variety of stuff to select by way of right here, so I’ll simplify issues a bit. Cync sells smart bulbs in three flavors—white, full colour, and HD full colour (which is extra-pretty). The bulbs are available a number of styles and sizes, and even embody just a few choices for recessed or outdoor fixtures. A few of these bulbs are decorative, with completely different finishes and old school “filaments.”
And Cync now sells recessed smart fixtures, that are simpler to put in than conventional fixtures and have full colour help.
You should purchase all of Cync’s new sensible lighting merchandise right this moment, beginning at $12 for the bulbs or $35 for the recessed lighting.
A Sensible Thermostat and Temperature Sensor
Essentially the most notable product in Cync’s new lineup, not less than for my part, is the Cync Sensible Thermostat. It prices simply $120 and may be put in with out a C-wire, which is never out there in older houses. Plus, it doesn’t require a hub and works with Cync’s new Room Temperature Sensors.
Whereas the Cync Sensible Thermostat lacks any difficult “studying” options, it’s a compelling choice for many who need to add voice management, schedules, and distant management to their dwelling’s A/C and heating system. The temperature sensors are particularly helpful in bigger houses, as rooms that get particularly scorching or chilly received’t be ignored by the thermostat.
The Cync Sensible Thermostat and Room Temperature Sensors launched again in January. You may order them for $120 and $30, respectively.
Sensible Safety Cameras
Shortly after the launch of its indoor camera, Cync revealed an outdoor smart camera with evening imaginative and prescient, an HD decision, and two-way audio help. It additionally helps native storage, which is commonly safer (and might document extra) than cloud storage.
Whereas this digicam is wired, you should buy an add-on photo voltaic panel (which isn’t out but) to maintain it going with out working a cable round your own home.
At $100, the Cync outside digicam is pretty reasonably priced. It launched in March and is on the market for buy at Lowe’s.
