Cync, powered by Savant Systems, Inc. (previously called C by GE), recently announced 11 new smart lamps at the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Cync has committed to the new Matter smart home standard, a new foundation for connected things. Matter is an industry-unifying standard that is reliable and secure. Instead of having to fuss with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Z-Wave, Zigbee, and other setup methods for smart bulbs and other in-home technology, Matter promises to let users take something out of the box, plug it in, and set it up right through an app – no extra connectivity steps or hassle. Matter was created by over 200 companies and it’s open-source, so Apple, Google, Samsung, Amazon, iRobot, Philips Hue, Ecobee, Whyze, and hundreds of others have agreed to intertwine Thread, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and even ethernet to let devices communicate with each other locally – no server-side cloud necessary.
The Cync portfolio grows now by 11 new lamps, including a candelabra and globe light, as well as its popular Reveal bulbs. After setting these up, you can control them by voice with the new Cync app, and even control them via schedules. These will be available at Lowe’s, Best Buy, Target, and Amazon this March of 2022 at the starting price of just $11.99 USD. The Cync app is updated to be interoperable with all of the new devices shown off at CES, including smart thermostat, smart camera, and more.
