You’ve got one more day to grab some serious bargains on gadgets for your smart home, including smart lighting, smart locks, robot vacuums, security cameras, and smart speakers, to name just a few. With Cyber Monday now in full swing, it may be your last chance to go big on some of these great deals as the Black Friday / Cyber Monday madness wraps up.

With the new smart home standard Matter on the horizon, it's worth being discerning about your bargain shopping if you plan to take advantage of the new interoperability protocol. (Which means if you want all your devices to work with all the different smart home platforms out of the box). So we’ve mainly highlighted deals on gadgets that will work with Matter — or, if not, then gadgets that work with all the major platforms.

Some device categories are not yet on the Matter bandwagon, including cameras and robot vacuums. We’re not going to tell you to wait — if you need them, now is definitely the time to buy them, as there are seriously good deals to be had.

The best Cyber Monday deals on smart speakers and hubs that will work with Matter

Matter is a new smart home standard that will make it easier for your gadgets to work with each other and any platform you want to control them with — from Amazon Alexa and Google Home to Apple Home and Samsung SmartThings.

Matter devices will need a Matter controller, and those that use Thread — a protocol Matter runs on — will need a Thread border router. Black Friday is the perfect time to pick up one of the many gadgets that will have this functionality built in for a bargain price.

  • The brand new Echo Dot fifth-gen has tumbled to just $25, down from $50. You can also pick up the Dot with Clock for just $40, down from $60, with a free Hue smart bulb. The new Dot smart speaker line-up has better sound, faster responses from its built-in voice assistant Alexa, and more sensors than the previous generation. Plus, it can double as a Wi-Fi extender for Eero routers and will be updated to be a Matter controller.
