GE Lighting, a Savant company, has expanded its Cync smart home ecosystem with several new products. The company is introducing the Cync Smart Thermostat and Temperature Sensor, a line of Cync Outdoor Security Cameras, and additional smart lighting products at CES 2022 in Las Vegas this week, and plans to launch more hardware and software solutions throughout the year.
“The ‘smartest’ smart home consists of a network of reliable products that work together seamlessly and are easy to install and use, for the ultimate in convenience, comfort and security,” says Paul Williams, vice president of Experiences at GE Lighting, a Savant company.
“Our new products give consumers the ability to bolster their Cync smart home with new whole-home capabilities that are hubless and can all be controlled by a single app or voice.”
Cync Smart Thermostat & Sensors Optimize Room Comfort
The Cync Smart Thermostat can be installed without a common wire, making it compatible in nearly every home, the company notes.
It has a large, sleek and high-contrast display for easy on-site controls and like all Cync products, no hub is required for remote control using the Cync app, according to GE Lighting.
The Cync Room Temperature Sensors work with the Smart Thermostat to monitor individual rooms or the entire home and optimize the comfort accordingly. The Smart Thermostat (from $119.99) and Temperature Sensor ($29.99) will be available to order in January from Lowe’s, Best Buy and Amazon.
Following its first indoor camera launch, Cync is adding outdoor camera options. The Outdoor Smart Camera comes in both wired and battery/solar powered options.
The product has 2K/1280P HD video and night vision, and a digital swivel head. Both cloud and local SD storage options are available. The Outdoor Smart Cameras and Accessories will be available to order in February from Lowe’s, Best Buy and Amazon. Wired Cameras start at $99.99, Battery Cameras at $129.99 and Solar Panel Accessory at $44.99.

The lights incorporate Wi-Fi to enable features including voice control, scheduling scenes and more, all controllable via the Cync app, powered by Savant. The new smart lights will be available to order in March from Lowe’s, Best Buy, Target and Amazon, starting at $11.99.
