It can be hard to know where to start when you’re ready to “smarten” up your home. As new smart home devices hit the market, the best deals aren’t based just on cost, but on choosing products from trusted brands, with functions you’ll actually use in your home. Compatibility with devices from other brands adds to value and privacy protection also matters.

The smart home device market is filled with thermostats, cameras, door locks, lights, appliance interfaces, control hubs, and more. With manufacturers focused on building their brands in the smart home space, we can expect to see plenty of new devices – and, of course, some great deals – in the coming years.

We’ve rounded up some current deals on smart home devices or systems from the most trusted brands.


Eufy RoboVac 11


The Eufy RoboVac 11, a handy robot that cleans up your messes with the click of a button, is currently $280 off on Amazon. One of the best vacuums available, it features one rolling brush, two side brushes, and powerful suction. The low-profile design is 0.5-inches thinner than comparable models on the market, which allows it to slide under furniture and eliminate hidden dirt more thoroughly. The vacuum has three distinct cleaning modes, as well as triple filters, including a HEPA-style filter that traps microscopic allergy triggers such as dust mites, mold spores, and pet dander.

The Eufy RoboVac 11 regularly retails for $500 but is currently on sale for $220 on Amazon, saving you $280 (56 percent).
