We were very excited when Cync (formerly C by GE) unveiled a line of affordable smart home products during CES 2022, including a smart thermostat and outdoor camera. And now that Cync has launched its new smart bulbs, you can finally buy the entire lineup.
Nearly a Dozen Smart Bulbs
Cync went absolutely bonkers with its new smart bulbs. There are 11 options to choose from, including recessed lights, decorative lights, and bulbs that cost just $12. Oh, and none of these bulbs require a hub!
You have a lot of stuff to pick through here, so I’ll simplify things a bit. Cync sells smart bulbs in three flavors—white, full color, and HD full color (which is extra-pretty). The bulbs come in several shapes and sizes, and even include a few options for recessed or outdoor fixtures. Some of these bulbs are decorative, with different finishes and old-fashioned “filaments.”
And Cync now sells recessed smart fixtures, which are easier to install than traditional fixtures and feature full color support.
You can buy all of Cync’s new smart lighting products today, starting at $12 for the bulbs or $35 for the recessed lighting.

A Smart Thermostat and Temperature Sensor
The most notable product in Cync’s new lineup, at least in my opinion, is the Cync Smart Thermostat. It costs just $120 and can be installed without a C-wire, which is rarely available in older homes. Plus, it doesn’t require a hub and works with Cync’s new Room Temperature Sensors.
While the Cync Smart Thermostat lacks any complicated “learning” features, it’s a compelling option for those who want to add voice control, schedules, and remote control to their home’s A/C and heating system. The temperature sensors are especially useful in larger homes, as rooms that get especially hot or cold won’t be ignored by the thermostat.
The Cync Smart Thermostat and Room Temperature Sensors launched back in January. You can order them for $120 and $30, respectively.

Smart Security Cameras
Shortly after the launch of its indoor camera, Cync revealed an outdoor smart camera with night vision, an HD resolution, and two-way audio support. It also supports local storage, which is often more secure (and can record more) than cloud storage.
While this camera is wired, you can buy an add-on solar panel (which isn’t out yet) to keep it going without running a cable around your home.
At $100, the Cync outdoor camera is fairly affordable. It launched in March and is available for purchase at Lowe’s.
