GE Lighting has rebranded its existing C by GE products as CYNC. The Savant company will begin transitioning the C by GE brand to its new CYNC branding over the coming months, with all previous products fully supported by the new CYNC app. Several new CYNC products have also been announced to coincide with the rebranding, including smart plugs and smart switches.
The new CYNC is powered by the Savant app and is a platform that includes enhanced personalization and control of all past and present C by GE products, as well as present and future CYNC products. According to GE Lighting, the app creates a more user-friendly and customizable experience that enhances comfort, control, confidence and convenience.
It includes functionalities from Savant’s Pro technology such as the patented TrueImage feature that gives consumers the ability to preview color and brightness changes using a photo of their room in the app. The app controls the entire CYNC network to create whole-home automation – inside and out.
The app is available for free and downloadable on the Apple Store and Google Play. It works with versions iOS 14 and up, or Android 8 and up.

The CYNC Outdoor Smart Plug allows consumers to independently control two outlets from the CYNC app or with your voice and Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. The company says the product is perfect for easily managing holiday lights, pathway lights, pools and more from the comfort of inside the home. It also includes both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and features a weatherproof design.

The CYNC Fan Speed Smart Switch can be scheduled to come on/off at specific times, features four fan speeds for dialed-in comfort, and can be grouped with other CYNC/C by GE devices for additional room control.
