Hot topic: June smart ovens have been preheating in the middle of the night, company blames user error

You can pretty much get a smart anything these days, and while lots of connected products make sense, some can be more concerning.

Eufy's brand new 2K Wi-Fi smart doorbell is selling for $112 ($48 off)

Smart doorbells are a convenient way of adding an extra layer of security to your household, but they can be quite pricey and often require an additional monthly subscription. Of course, there are a few inexpensive options, but their resolution is usually limited to 1080p, which is decent, but not on par with new 4K standards. Eufy's approach offers a good compromise with great value for money, thanks to its 2K image quality at a reasonable price and with no monthly fees. The intelligent doorbell normally costs $160, but you can get it for just $112 thanks to this promo code.

Lenovo Smart Home Essentials is the company's new product line for the connected home. It's starting off humbly with a camera, a wall plug, and a light bulb — consequently, I feel like there should be a joke here, but I'm drawing a blank. These will be compatible with both Alexa and Assistant right out of the gate, too.

Apparently Target has its own line of smart lamps, for which the US retailer released an iOS app called Target Connected back in October 2016. Now that app is available for Android devices, though without Google Assistant integration or any groundbreaking features, it's far from anything to get excited about.
