With Memorial Day just around the corner, deals galore on some of the hottest and most sought-after tech products of the year are available right now. And there’s no area more exciting than smart home products, where major retailers like Walmart, Amazon and Best Buy are dropping prices on everything from smart locks to learning thermostats. We’ve rounded up the best deals online.
August Smart Lock
A smart lock is the best new way to improve home security. This device from August replaces your existing door deadbolt with one you can control from your smartphone manually, on a schedule or even give visitors temporary guest keys.
If you’re looking for a new home thermostat, consider this Amazon deal on the Ecobee4 Smart Thermostat. The device connects to the wiring in your home that powers your existing thermostat, but adds in smart technology. It sees how you live and adjusts your temperature settings to respond accordingly, automating indoor climate control. You can control it from your smartphone or with voice commands through its Amazon Alexa integration.
This handy device makes just about anything that plugs into a traditional outlet — lamp, toaster, power strip — controllable by voice or smartphone.
Like Ecobee’s, this smart thermostat makes your home’s climate system digital and upgrades its flexibility, allowing you to customize temperatures and schedules — or let the device figure it out for you — and control it all via smartphone or voice commands through Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.
This smart speaker provides quality audio with next-level sophistication, allowing you to control your music, podcasts, reminders and other functions with voice commands using Google Assistant technology.
