GE Lighting unveils a smart thermostat at CES, plus new security cams and smart lights – Ben Patterson

A year after venturing beyond smart lights with its first security camera, GE Lighting is back at CES with another first for its Cync brand: a smart thermostat. The manufacturer also has more security cams to show off, along with a range of new smart bulbs.

Slated to arrive this month, the Wi-Fi-enabled Cync Smart Thermostat boasts a “sleek,” “high-contrast” LCD display, and it can be operated outside the home using the Cync app, no hub required.
