There is never a better time to dive into the smart home than Cyber Monday. Traditionally, tech deals on home gadgets are huge this time of year, plus, it’s the only time you’ll find real bargains on gear from some of the smaller companies, such as Eve, Level, and Nanoleaf.

Whether you’re thinking about dipping a toe into this home automation shindig with a smart speaker or maybe a connected door lock, or want to bolster an already impressive smart home setup, it’s worth investing some cash this holiday season.

Also, if you just want to upgrade your home cleaning routine or have a way to check in on Fido now that you’re back at work (the separation anxiety is real), this is a good time to get a great bargain on smart cameras, robot vacuums, and even a smart mop. Here’s our roundup of the best deals on smart home gear you can buy right now.

Mesh Wi-Fi router deals

The foundation of any smart home is good Wi-Fi, and if you’re looking to start out or are having trouble with connections in your home, a mesh Wi-Fi router is the way to go.

Google Nest Wifi
$249

A Google Nest Wifi 3 pack comes with one router and two points and can cover a home of up to 5,400 square feet, and the points double as Nest smart speakers.

  • Google has discounted its Nest Wifi mesh networking system this week. Save $100 off a router and two points (now $249, regularly $349), both of which also double as Google Nest smart speakers. You can currently pick up these deals at Walmart, Best Buy and Google’s own store. Read our review of Google Nest Wifi.

Smart speakers and thermostat deals

  • Amazon’s stalwart Echo Dot smart speaker third-gen can be had at Amazon for just $20 right now with six months of Amazon Music thrown in (down from $40). That’s a great deal on a still good speaker to control your smart home.
  • The latest Echo Dot with a clock is $25 off, for $35 (down from $60), you can get 25 percent off with a trade-in, too. Or go clock-less and get the Echo Dot for $30, down from $50. Both of these great little smart speakers can come with a free smart bulb, too, if you choose.
  • The spherical Echo fourth-gen with the built-in Zigbee smart home hub (which Amazon has also committed to upgrading to Matter) is now also almost half off at Amazon, selling for $59.99 as opposed to $99.99. Read our Echo fourth-gen review.
$59.99

The newest spherical smart speaker from Amazon packs in powerful sounds with some serious smart home chops.

  • For an Alexa-powered smart display, the 2019 model Show 8 is a Verge favorite and is just $59.99, down from $109.99, at Amazon. The 2020 model Echo Show 8 is $89.99, down from $129.99.
  • A smart display that’s a great bedside companion thanks to its sleep-tracking, the Google Nest Hub 2nd Gen is on sale for $49.99, a savings of $50, at GoogleBest BuyWalmart, and Target.
  • If you’re thinking you might want to connect a security camera to your smart display, Wyze is offering its Wyze Cam v3 with a Google Nest Hub for $69.99 at Wyze, so you’re getting the $35 camera for just $10.

Smart security camera and security system deals

  • While not quite a security system, the myQ Chamberlain Smart Garage Control allows you to ensure you closed the garage door even when you’re not home. It’s also the only garage door opener compatible with the Amazon Key service, allowing packages to be delivered into your garage for safer keeping. For Cyber Monday you can get the smart garage control system at Amazon for just $17 (saving you $13).
$16.98

The mQ Chamberlain Smart Garage Control comes with a Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-equipped hub and sensor, allowing you to close or open your garage door with your smartphone from any location.

  • The cheapest Ring video doorbell, Ring Video Doorbell Wired, gets even cheaper with an $18 price cut to $41.99 at Amazon. Plus, you can get an Echo Dot smart speaker with it for free with this bundle. The Ring Wired uses existing doorbell wiring and works over 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi.
  • For a battery-powered option, the new Blink video doorbell is just $34.99 at Amazon, a savings of $10, and it can also be wired if you prefer.
  • The tiny Blink Mini camera is selling for even less. Just $20 at Amazon right now, down from $34.99, this is the cheapest indoor smart security camera you can buy right now.
  • For outside surveillance, Google’s very good Nest Cam with floodlight is $50 off ($229.99 instead of $279.99) at Best Buy. You’ll want to make sure you can mount this on the side of your house first, as it has a rather awkward under-the-eave install. Read our review of this floodlight camera.
  • Speaking of Google, the older, hardwired Nest Doorbell is $80 off at GoogleWalmartBest Buy, and Target, dropping the price to $149. This is still one of the best smart doorbells, despite its age. A new model is coming in 2022, but this is a great price on a long-standing product from Google.
The Ecobee SmartCamera
