A smart button is an excellent addition to a connected home, as it adds easy control over a number of different devices in one convenient place. However, not all of these buttons are created equal. While the Fibaro may look like it’s worth the extra expense at first glance, we feel that the SmartThings’ easier integration earns it a solid spot on the top.
While these buttons both offer battery-powered, convenient control over your various smart devices, they’re actually quite different. Fibaro adds a lot of cool features, but it falls short in the lack of direct integration. All those features are for naught if they aren’t easily accessed, so the more straightforward SmartThings button takes the cake.
Below we break down the differences of Fibaro vs. SmartThings, but you can feel free to use the navigation bar to jump directly to the sections that interest you most.
When the topic of smart technology comes up, garage door openers probably aren’t the first thing that comes to mind. However, brands like Genie and Chamberlain offer some pretty intelligent products with a surprising number of features. While both openers have a lot going for them, we do feel that the Genie has an slight edge due to integration with HomeLink and Car2U.
Although the Genie does have those extra features going for it, the comparison is honestly a bit of a toss up due to the useful battery backup that the Chamberlain has to offer — firmly cementing it as a top of the line model as well. No matter the brand you choose, you’ll be in and out of your garage with more convenience and ease than ever before.
Below, we give our comprehensive comparison of the Genie vs. Chamberlain garage door opener. If you’re interested in specific features, however, feel free to use our navigation bar to jump directly to the spots you care about most.
Back in the 1970s, it would normally take about 30 minutes for a fire to completely engulf a room. Today, it can happen in less than 5. Having a smart smoke and carbon monoxide detector can literally be a lifesaver due to its safety features and cutting edge technology. Add in some quality-of-life features like a warning before the alarm goes off — or even a night light to help guide your way to the exits in the dark — and it becomes clear that a smart alarm is a worthwhile investment.
Below, we take a look at the Nest Protect vs. First Alert Onelink Safe & Sound. Over 1,000,000 homes in the United States experience high levels of carbon monoxide each year, and an uncontrolled fire can quickly wreak havoc on a home if it’s not brought in check. Make sure you’re equipped with the information to make the right decision when it comes to outfitting your house with intelligent and accurate smoke alarms.
