While it’s relatively slim pickings in terms of smart home gear, there are still some good deals to be found during Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale, which runs through October 12th.

As always, there’s a slew of robot vacuums getting price drops; we’ve picked the best deals on the best bots we saw. There are also a number of older Echo devices seeing some substantial savings as well as some of our firm favorites, such as the Echo Show 8 and Echo fourth-gen smart speakers.

We also found some decent deals on a few of our top picks for smart security cameras, plus savings on smart locks and garage door controllers. Remember, most of the deals on Prime Day are for Prime members only, but if you’re not a member, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial and still get those prices.

The best deals on Amazon Echo devices

The fourth-gen Echo Dot sitting on a table.
$50

The best all-around Echo speaker has great sound and a built-in smart hub. Add in that support for the new Matter smart home standard and Eero mesh Wi-Fi are coming soon, and this is a top pick for the smart home enthusiast.

The best robot vacuum deals

Roomba j7 Plus

$80025% off
$599

iRobot’s excellent j7 Plus is $200 off today at $599 with its auto-empty base. An AI-powered vacuum that can spot and avoid things like socks, cables, and pet waste, this is the best Roomba vacuum cleaner we’ve tested.

Yeedi Vac

$30033% off
$200

For a budget bot that will get the job done, the Yeedi Vac is down to $199.99 (from $299.99) when you click an on-page $100 coupon. This powerhouse has a big bin, a long runtime, digital mapping and virtual keep-out zones, and enough suction to get your floors super clean. You can also pair it with an auto-empty dock if you don’t like to get your hands dirty.

The best deals on smart lighting

  • The elegant Nanoleaf Elements Wood are on sale for $199, a savings of $50. These hexagonal wood-look lighting panels can display a range of warm to cool ambient white lighting and double as wall art. Both Nanoleaf sets work over 2.4GHz Wi-Fi and can function as Thread border routers.
  • Nanoleaf’s Thread-enabled smart light bulbs, the Nanoleaf Essentials A19 white and color bulbs, are on sale for $37 for three — a savings of $12. These smart bulbs work over Thread or Bluetooth and are compatible with Apple Home’s adaptive lighting feature.
  • For some outdoor smart lighting, these Govee Smart Outdoor String Lights are a great way to spruce up your deck or patio with warm lighting. On sale for $27.99 (down from $41.99), the white LED bulbs are Wi-Fi powered, IP65-rated, and work with Alexa for voice control.
  • If you have existing outdoor lights you want to make smart, the Kasa Outdoor Smart Dimmer Plug is on sale for just $17.99 today. This is a great option and one of the only outdoor smart plugs that can also dim your string lights. It works over Wi-Fi, so no hub is required, and it can be controlled by Alexa and Google but not Apple Home.
  • The 1100-lumen Wyze Bulb Color is compatible with both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Right now, the smart A19 bulb is on sale for $10.99 instead of $15.98.

The best deals on smart security cameras

$240

The Eufy Floodlight Cam 2 Pro has a 360 field of view and super bright, tunable LED floodlights. There are no monthly fees for viewing recorded footage, but the limited zoom and spotty smart alerts let it down.

$40

The budget Ring Video Doorbell Wired is only $40 today and comes with a free Echo Dot third-gen that will act as an indoor chime. This one requires doorbell wires and a Ring Protect Plan to view recorded footage, but it’s a good video doorbell that works with Alexa and delivers 1080p HD video of your front porch.

  • Ring’s basic battery-powered buzzer is also on sale, bundled with a Ring Stick up Cam for $119.98, an $80 savings. The Ring Video Doorbell (second-gen) can be hooked up to doorbell wires to trickle charge its battery or work solely off battery power. The Ring Stick Up Cam is also battery-powered and can be used indoors or outside. Both require a Ring Protect subscription to view recorded videos.
  • The excellent battery-powered Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight cam is 22 percent off today, bringing the price to $193.84 instead of $249.99. With 2K video, color-night vision, and a 160-degree view — not to mention powerful 3,000-lumen floodlights — this Arlo cam can work over Wi-Fi or with an Arlo system, which adds Apple Home support in addition to Alexa and Google Home compatibility. Read our review.
  • An Apple Home-compatible security camera from our Best Floodlight Camera buying guide, the Eve Outdoor Cam is on sale for $40 off with the on-page coupon, bringing it to $209.95.
  • For some cheap home security options, the Blink Mini indoor cam is available as a two-pack for just $29.99 (regularly $64.99). Blink recently announced a pan and tilt mount for its Mini camera that adds the ability for this camera to rotate and tilt so you can see everywhere in your home.
  • If you’re in the market for a dedicated pet cam that also throws treats to your furball, the fun Furbo 360 Dog cam is $147, down from $210. This one rotates 360 degrees to follow your pet, so you never miss a moment. However, it does require a monthly subscription fee to view your pet’s recorded antics.

The best deals on smart locks

Kwikset Halo Touch

$24920% off
$199

If you want to just touch your door to unlock it, the Kwikset Halo Touch Contemporary Square Wi-Fi Fingerprint Smart Lock unlocks with your fingerprint or a standard key and is $50 off. It also has built-in Wi-Fi, so you can lock and unlock it remotely using an app or voice control through Alexa or Google.

  • The fun and functional SwitchBot smart lock is on sale with 20 percent off across its range of accessories using the on-page coupon. Our pick is the lock, plus the hub, and fingerprint reading keypad, which is $135.99 right now. The hub connects this retrofit Bluetooth lock to Wi-FI so you can control it with Amazon Alexa and Google Home, and the fingerprint keypad gives you an easy way to unlock the door. Read our review.
  • Not a door lock, per se, but another way to access your home from your phone, the MyQ smart garage controller is on sale — again. Just $16.98, down from $29.98, this connects wirelessly to your garage door opener to let you control it from your phone. MyQ also has a compatible garage camera that pairs with the controller (and can mount magnetically under your opener), so you can visually see if your door is open that’s on sale today for $69.99, but it requires a subscription to view any recorded video. Both products work with Amazon Key In-Garage Delivery if you want to have packages delivered inside your garage.

The best deals on smart plugs

  • Amazon is selling Kasa’s Smart Plug Power Strip HS300, which comes with six outlets and three USB ports, for $44.99 instead of $79.99. The strip is compatible with both Amazon Alexa and Google Home; it also sports additional features like energy monitoring.
  • The excellent Kasa Mini smart plugs are also on sale for $12.99 for two, down from $19.99. These are not the Apple Home-compatible versions (which are also on sale for $39.99 for four), and there’s no energy monitoring, but they do work with Alexa and Google Home.
  • You can also score a 50 percent discount on the Amazon Smart Plug, which is selling for $12.99. Be aware, though, it’s only compatible with Alexa-enabled devices and can only be used indoors.
