Smart Home Deals

  • Echo Dot (3rd Gen) + Lifx Smart Bulb for $19 ($40 off): This Echo Dot is now one generation behind the latest and greatest, but it’s still a capable little speaker. The smart-bulb model included here isn’t in our list of the best, but I like this brand a lot, and they’re typically quite expensive, so the free bulb is a nice surprise. You can control the bulb with the Dot you’re getting.

  • C by GE Smart Room Starter Pack for $35 ($15 off) at Best Buy: We like all the C by GE products we’ve tested, and this bundle gets you four soft white smart bulbs and a smart plug for a pretty good price. They work with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

  • C by GE Smart Plug for $10 ($9.50 Off): If you aren’t in the market for smart bulbs, you can also get the C by GE smart plug. It’s simple to use and also works with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

  • TP-Link Kasa Smart Plug HS103 for $9 ($5 off): We haven’t tested this exact model, but several WIRED staff members own TP-Link Kasa plugs and love them. It works with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

  • TP-Link Kasa Soft White Filament Smart Bulb for $10 ($7 off): This bulb has a unique vintage look to it, good if you have lamps that put the bulb on display. Though it is only a dimmable white, so if color options are important to you, you may want to wait for other bulbs to go on sale. It works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.

  • Lenovo Smart Clock for $40 ($40 off) at Best Buy: Lenovo’s Smart Clock is nice for the bedroom with its 4-inch display and alarm clock functionality. Though the screen is smaller than other smart displays, it can do almost anything other Google Assistant devices can do.

  • Echo Show 5 for $45 ($45 off): We prefer Google assistant to Alexa, but this is the best price we’ve ever seen for Amazon’s smaller smart-home display, the Echo Show 5. You can opt to include a free one-year subscription to Food Network Kitchen, a service we’ve reviewed that offers a myriad of tips and recipes.

  • Fitbit Aria Smart Scale for $35 ($15 off): I’m not a fan of scales, but it’s sometimes useful to track your weight. Fitbit’s smart scale is now considerably cheaper than when we first reviewed it.
