Smart homes are becoming more powerful and reliable with new brands entering this space previously ruled by brands like Philips Hue and Ring. Less popular brands like Cync by GE are making waves with their smart home line up which consists of gadgets from thermostats to lights to cameras. One can easily refer to the Cync system as the dark horse in this segment.
Cync By GE Smart Lighting Review
The GE Cync gadgets include products such as
- Direct Connect Color Smart Bulb
- Direct Connect Light Strip
- Smart Motion Sensor
- Cync Wire-Free Dimmer Switch
- Outdoor Smart Plug
GE Cync advantage over others is they connect to the home Wi-Fi directly, whereas other home smart lighting systems use bridges or hubs to connect the devices. This ensures no extra components are to be purchased and the lights on communication with the Cync app.
Setting Up the GE Cync Using the Cync App
The Cync is an easy smart home app system to navigate. The app works as a central control system. It is delightfully sleek and easy to navigate. The app remotely controls all devices, sets schedules, group lights, and links other devices.
Once the Cync account is activated, adding devices is simple. Devices that are set up in the app can go online in seconds. This makes the Cync by GE system easier to set up compared to competitors.
Cync By GE Color Smart Bulb
I can set up the GE full-color smart bulb in the bedroom with a Cync wire-free dimmer switch. It is easy to control the bedside lamp from across the room. Create a room called Bedroom and add all devices with just a few clicks.
The light bulb is the easiest gadget to set up in the smart home system. It changes color and gives different temperatures to white light, setting the perfect mood. One can also set a timer to the smart color bulb in the Cync app using the “Scenes” options. The scene is set to turn the light dim before bedtime.
Outdoor Smart Plug From GE Cync
The smart outdoor plug is a large-shaped block with a short cord and two plugs under rubber flaps to keep it weatherproof. The GE lighting Cync outdoor smart plug is an excellent device to automate string or older patio lights or a water fountain. Homeowners can love using this feature to control lights on an automated schedule so fountain lights can turn on and off during evenings and bedtime.
Overall, the Cync by GE smart lighting system is impressive with its various devices that can be set up with the app, voice, or buttons.
