Smart home devices are some of the most popular sellers on Amazon so we expect to see lots of smart speakers, displays, cameras and much more at the top of the Prime Day sale this year. In the lead-up to Prime Day, Amazon ran its Smart Home Week a few weeks ago which had up to 40% off popular products and brands.

Let’s get into the specifics with our first smart home prediction. Smart speakers and displays are sure to be at the top of the sale and we can already see offers of up to 40% off on Echo Dot speakers. We expect to see the Echo & Alexa range of products (opens in new tab) in the Prime Day sale, specifically the Echo Show 5, Echo Show 8 and Echo Dot 3rd and 4th generations.

Our next prediction is on smart security products, including cameras and doorbells. While most smart security brands have devices for both inside and outside the house, we think that both will be discounted with potentially the indoor cameras having the bigger price drops. We hope to see video doorbells discounted too from big-name brands like Ring and Nest doorbells.

In the Prime Day sale, we think there will be lots of deals on smart devices for the inside of the home, with a strong focus on products designed to keep your energy bills down. We hope to see smart lighting and smart thermostats with big discounts this year and lots of starter kits to help you install them quickly and easily.

What smart home brands can I find in the Prime Day sale?

So, what brands should you expect to see? As Prime Day is an Amazon event, Amazon smart home products will definitely have some of the biggest price cuts this year. If you’re an Alexa fan, look out for deals on Amazon products, including Echo, Fire and Flex. Amazon also owns Blink (smart security cameras) and Ring (video doorbells) so make sure to check out offers from these. As Amazon has so many products under their belt, we hope to see some bundle deals where you can buy Amazon smart cameras and doorbells together at a discounted price.

Next, we think Google will have great price cuts so if you’re a Google Assistant user, you should hopefully be able to find some cheap prices on Google Nest speakers, cameras, thermostats and doorbells. Other brands we expect to see in the Prime Day sale are Philips Hue (smart lighting), tado (smart thermostats and air conditioning), eufy (smart cameras and robot vacuums), Hive (smart heating, security, sensors and more) and TP-Link (smart cameras, plugs and WiFi).

All of these brands have made the lists for best smart speakers (opens in new tab), the best smart security cameras (opens in new tab) and the best smart video doorbells (opens in new tab) so you’re definitely getting a product that’s high quality and at an affordable price.
