Beyond this market are less expensive smart home devices and systems, largely manufacturer by security, software and electronics firms. Rival software firms Apple and Google are two major players in this marketspace. Google recently acquired the aforementioned Nest Learning Thermostat for $3. 2 billion, and has designs on the home security market. Apple is designing a software platform to control smart home devices, and is in talks with a group of retailers to incorporate it into their devices. Another large player in this market is ATandT, whose Digital Life service, consisting of one app and a wireless adapter device, aggregates all services and devices and the consumer pays a monthly fee for this service. Samsung, GE, Comcast, Time Warner, Staples, Best Buy, ADT, Tyco, and other firms are also in the mix. To harness the full potential of the smart home automation, disparate manufacturers will have to develop technologies based on common open standards. Very few, if any, firms produce every device found in a household, and it is unlikely that consumers would be brand loyal enough to buy every household device, or even a majority of them, from a single manufacturer. So if manufacturers want to ensure that their devices talk to others, they will have be developed under common standards – standards also shared between software companies. This level of collaboration may take some time – many of these firms are direct competitors after all, but it is necessary.

The Flir FX has a unique feature, called RapidRecap, which edits numerous hours' worth of footage into a short summary. It also has a one year warranty, though Nest and Belkin both offer two year warranties. Read the full reviewExcellent Daytime VideoNetgear Arlo Q$133. 99 View at Best Buy$139. 85View at eBay$199View at Walmart?While it does well in bright and low light environments, it struggled to produce similar results at night. While we experienced some connection problems during testing, the camera had one of the most stable connections overall. When we originally tested the camera, it wasn't compatible with any smart home platforms, but now works with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, IFTTT and Stringify. We also like that Arlo cameras come with seven day cloud video storage at no cost, though you can upgrade to better plans starting at $9. 99 a month. In addition to less than optimal nighttime video, Arlo Q's warranty is only one year long compared to two year coverage offered by Nest and Belkin. Unlike other security cameras we tested, Netgear doesn't offer free 24/7 technical support after the first 90 days.
