The Never-Ending Death of Smart Home Gadgets

I got my smart TV in early November 2016. It was a 50-inch Samsung—the largest size I could convince my then skeptical roommate to shell out for. We scored a modest deal. At roughly $600 split between two poor millennials, it wasn’t half-bad. (Though, in retrospect, I should have waited until Black Friday.) It was,…Read more...

Brilliant makes your smart home more manageable

Controlling your smart home gadgets from your phone or by voice isn’t exactly a chore, but after setting up a bunch of smart lights, a Wi-Fi lock, thermostat and a few more smart devices, I came to miss the ability to control at least some of them with a physical switch. Add to that the simple fact that your visitors suddenly don’t have a clue how to turn off the lights and you may just want to go back to basic light switches. Thankfully, that’s something the industry has realized, too, and we’r...

Kraftful raises $1M to help smart home companies make better apps

If a thousand companies make their own smart light bulb, do a thousand companies also have to design a light switch app to control them? Kraftful, a company out of Y Combinator’s Summer 2019 class, doesn’t think so. Kraftful builds the myriad components that an IoT/smart home company might need, puzzle piecing them together into apps for each company without requiring them to reinvent the light switch (or the padlock button, or the smart thermostat dial) for the nth time. Because no company w...

This fun, portable Philips Hue Go smart lamp can cast 16 million colors — I use it as a night light, an outdoor decoration, and more

The Philips Hue Go is a portable Bluetooth-enabled smart lamp that changes color.  You can control the Philips Hue Go in three ways: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or a button on device itself.  I tested out the Philips Hue Go, and it's a fun decorative light that doesn't require a lot of setup. But, it's not quite bright enough to replace a desk lamp.  As a smart home reporter, I recognize that Philips Hue's smart lights are the best in the business. However, I personally don't use them. My home is eq...

This smart switch solves a big issue of Philips Hue smart bulbs not working when the switch is off — here’s how it works

  Philips Hue bulbs are a great way to get smart lights, but they don't work if you manually turn off the switch. The $40 Lutron Aurora is a simple, easy-to-use switch and dimmer that pops right over your existing one to keep it from getting flipped so it's always on and controllable via voice or through your phone.  It's not uncommon to replace old light bulbs with new smart ones that can be voice- or smart phone-controlled, but it can still be tricky if you live with others who prefer usin...
