Due to overstock, this Prime Day is extra special: “Generally the best deals will be on Amazon-owned devices," says Julie Ramhold, Consumer Analyst with DealNews.com, citing price drops on Echo Dots and Ring doorbells. But you can also catch a major deal on a Google Nest. Start your shopping below!

Smart Home Hubs

Amazon Echo Show 8 (1st Gen, 2019 release)

$55$110Save $55
$55 at Amazon

Think of the Echo Show 8 as a personal assistant for your home. Its eight-inch screen accompanies stereo sound, making it possible to have voice control for your connected devices, curate to-do lists, bring up recipes, and display photos.

As one reviewer put it: “​​Hands down, this is by far the best item I have ever purchased for myself on Amazon ... I am absolutely amazed at the sound quality for starters. This Alexa packs exceptional sound quality into its small design. I have a subscription to Sirius XM which I have synced to play through Alexa and I am extremely impressed with the balance of the bass and treble. The screen resolution is very nice for the photo displays. You can sync an assortment of photos through the Amazon Photo app or select a category for the Echo 8 to display for you.”

Smart Plugs and Lights

Amazon Amazon Smart Plug

$13$25Save $12
$13 at Amazon

Use this smart plug on the devices you turn off and on frequently, like an entryway lamp or coffee maker, and Alexa will make it possible for you to turn them on remotely. This plug only takes up one side of an outlet, so it’s possible to keep the other side free.

"Small but mighty! Easy peasy setup, perfect smart plug!" says one reviewer. "I don't know how I've gone on this long without these nifty little gadgets.... I will tell you, you will get addicted and slowly realize that you need more of these little plugs in your life. The Alexa integration on this plug is seamless, the remote control is easy to use, as it's used through the Alexa app. I'm having no issues so far with the Wi-Fi signal, in fact, it has worked the best out of the two others that I tried... Definitely will be integrating a few more of these, room by room."

This smart camera system is easy to set up and will make it so you can see the comings and goings around your front (and or back) door. Comes with one base station, four contact sensors, one keypad, one motion detector, and one range extender.

"Everything you want in a single app in the palm of your hand," says a satisfied customer. "When people visit my front door the big old Echo Show verbally announces their presence and the visitors can hear the announcement through the door like a PA announcement. The door lock and Ring doorbell integrate seamlessly into one unified place. This is what I’m after — unified home Integration and automation with as few apps as possible."
