GE Lighting Introduces Smart Thermostat at CES

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

Scheduled to arrive this month, the Wi-Fi enabled Cync Smart Thermostat features a “stylish” “high contrast” LCD screen, and can be operated outside of the home via the Cync app, without the need for a hub.

Equipped with touch sensitive buttons, the thermostat has built-in temperature and humidity sensors and supports up to 10 heating / cooling zones. GE Lighting also says that the new thermostat can be installed without a common wire (or “C wire”), which should make it compatible with older homes.

Adjacent to the Cync Smart Thermostat is the Cync Remote Temperature Sensor, which runs on battery power and can monitor temperature and humidity in rooms separate from the location where the thermostat is installed. The non-display sensor connects to the Cync Smart Thermostat via Bluetooth.

Compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant, the Cync smart thermostat and remote temperature sensor will retail for $ 120 and $ 30, respectively.

In addition to your new thermostat and temperature sensor, GE Lighting is introducing a pair of outdoor security cameras that will join your existing indoor security camera.

Available in corded and battery-powered versions, the Cync Outdoor Security Camera features a rotating lens, 2K video resolution, a 118 x 63-degree (WxH) field of view, two-way audio, and black and white night vision. The camera’s passive infrared sensor can detect motion within a 25-foot radius and human detection is supported.
