A thermostat is also in the works, GE Lighting said, although it did not provide more details.
The first product is more modest. The Cync Outdoor Smart Plug allows you to remotely control two outlets (for example, for your patio lights or a fountain) using the Cync app or voice aids like Alexa and Google Assistant. There’s also no pricing available here, but the catch will be available in March.
A smart Cync fan speed switch will help you control fans without the need for a dedicated smart home hub, including scheduling and grouping with other devices. It is due in June.
The C by GE app won’t change to the Cync name until March, although it will include a feature that previews lighting changes based on a photo of your room. You won’t have to blind yourself or plunge into the dark just to see if a change in settings works, in other words. It’s safe to say that the old name could be a distant memory for the next several months, and Cync may be a viable alternative if you’re looking to outfit your entire home with hardware from a business.
