Smart home gift ideas? Lutron Caseta, Wyze & Brilliant.

Techstination feature for Tuesday, December 19, 2023

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        More last minute gift ideas…  this time, smart home gear.  Lutron’s Caseta line uses a hub to reduce the burden on your home WiFi and increase reliability at the same time.   There are smartly designed switches…even plugs for indoors or out…that can be controlled also by an app, the company’s Pico remote…or by voice…Alexa, Google or Siri.    The Caseta Wireless Smart Lighting Kit sells for about a hundred dollars.   Meanwhile, Wyze is a company that has made a name selling a variety of smart home gear including cameras at affordable prices.   We’ve found the Wyze Video Doorbell v2 to be impressive… …and it sells for just 40 dollars.    On the high end….is the 399 dollar Plug In Home Control Panel from Brilliant.   It is sleek and smart…and features Alexa built in.   We’ll have more on Brilliant in the weeks to come.
