When it comes to online shopping, especially during a major sales event like Amazon Prime Day, having a strategy is key. If you know what you’re looking for going into the sale, the better primed (pardon the pun) you’ll be to save big. And one category that Amazon is always sure to deliver major discounts in is smart home devices.
During this year’s two-day event, Amazon is offering all kinds of markdowns on high tech products that will transport your home into the future. The savings include Alexa-enabled devices, like Amazon's Third Generation Echo Dot, and home security essentials, like Blink’s mini smart home security camera. You can also save on smart home upgrades like this modern outlet shelf designed to seamlessly display a smart speaker.
Of course, in true Amazon fashion, these deals won’t last long so you’ll have to act fast in order to take advantage of the savings. You do have to be an Amazon Prime member to get in on these deals, but if you’re not already, you can start a free trial right now.
