It's been a banner year for the smart home, with new players and new products flooding the market. It's never been easier or less expensive to convert an ordinary home into a technological wonderland. The biggest developments have come with the widespread adoption of voice control, with Amazon's Echo family way out in front in terms of new products and third-party support.

We reviewed a lot of great products this year--and we encountered a few dogs as well--but this list represents our picks for the best of the best.
