We promise: creating a smart home can be easier than it sounds. Just by adding a few different smart devices, you’ll experience your surroundings in a way that’s even more seamless. And the CYNC line is specially designed to optimize your comfort, convenience, and control.
With so many different products available, it can be hard to know where to start, or which you should pick. But we’ll let you in on a little secret: our favorites are the ones that offer an improved alternative to the everyday objects you already know.
Here we’ve rounded up some of the best smart home devices for 2022. Let’s get to it!
Smart Bulbs are a great introduction to smart products. They’re simple to use, and they eliminate the age-old problem of getting comfy in bed or curling up on the couch…only to realize that a bright light is still glaring overhead.
Plus, because you can control these bulbs from anywhere, they’re a great, eco-friendly option—you might even notice the difference on your energy bill!
Smart Bulbs also work perfectly with other smart devices. Connect them to a Smart Plug for easy control that you can schedule, or pair them with Light Strips to further build your desired mood. If you have a voice assistant, like Google Home or Amazon Alexa, you can even use simple voice commands so that lights meet your exact liking.
Of course, Smart Bulbs also call for Smart Switches! Our easy-to-install switches and our Smart Remotes give you a variety of ways to control lights and devices from anywhere.
The wide range includes Wired Smart Switches that work in any home (Yes, even 100-year-old houses!), Wire-Free Smart Switches that you can install with a simple peel-and-stick process, and even a Ceiling Fan Smart Switch that can ensure you get the exact breeze you’re going for.
When you use the Cync App, powered by Savant, to group lights and other devices on your switch, you can control entire rooms with just one touch. This is one magic trick that’s sure to amaze guests.
Smart Plugs, it’s your time to shine! This palm-sized product manages to pack major peace of mind. After all, how many times have you settled into your desk or sat down at a restaurant, only to wonder “…Did I turn my curling iron off?”
When you connect devices to a Smart Plug, you can use the Cync App to control devices and lamps at once—even if you’re away from home.
You can also set schedules. Say, for example, that you can’t function without a cup of coffee. When your coffee maker is connected to the Indoor Smart Plug, you can ensure that it’s always on and brewing a cup that will be ready to enjoy by the time you (finally) roll out of bed.
For even more control, you can pair your Smart Plug with a voice assistant and turn off devices just by asking nicely.
The best part? You can enjoy this smart home magic inside and out! Our Outdoor Smart Plug lets you control lights, holiday decorations, and waterscapes without braving the elements.
The versatile fun continues with our Indoor and Outdoor Smart Cameras, which are a brilliant addition to every interior and exterior space. The indoor version lets you capture everyday moments that you don’t want to miss—whether it’s holiday celebrations, major milestones (Hello, first steps!), or other precious moments. For the times when you prefer your privacy, you can hide the lens with the Privacy Shutter.
When paired with the Outdoor Smart Camera, this dynamic duo is great for providing an extra sense of security. Check to see who’s on your doorstep, double check on your dog, get a quick glimpse of your house when you’re on vacation, or make sure the kids are getting off the bus on time when you’re at the office. Get real-time footage right on your phone just by opening the Cync App.
You can always play it cool with our Smart Thermostat. Pre-set your perfect temperatures so that you always come home to your ideal climate and save your HVAC from running when it doesn’t need to. This is an especially appealing option for anyone who’s returned from a summer vacation to a sweltering house!
When you pair your Smart Thermostat with a voice assistant, you can control temperatures with simple commands—and without getting out from your cozy throw blanket cocoon.
We have yet another energy-saving tip: hook up your home with a Smart Sensor—or better yet, incorporate several across different spaces. Smart Sensors detect motion and will automatically turn on the lights for you. And when they notice that things have gone still for a while, they’ll automatically turn lights off, too!
These super helpful devices are great wherever you can use a hand. For example: have you ever shuffled into your laundry room trying to balance a full hamper and flip on a light switch? Say goodbye to that (potentially smelly) struggle! And the days of following the kids around to do light switch damage control can be long gone, too.

You probably noticed the common thread through all of this: the Cync App, powered by Savant. This smart home app is your hub for controlling devices, setting schedules, adjusting lights, checking in, and even more. In other words: it definitely deserves a place on your phone.
