Over the course of two days, there are some major savings to be made across thousands of products in the best Prime Day deals. Over the past year, we’ve all spent more time at home than ever before which meant paying more attention to your living space and finding ways to make it even better. Smart home tech does exactly that, and it makes your life easier too.
It can make your home feel cosier, warmer, with better connectivity and without any effort, all while saving on energy. Or, it can make you feel reassured when you do leave the house that your personal sanctuary is safe and secure. You can control the lights with a simple voice command or ask a digital assistant to remind you to take the bins out later. But kitting out your home with the best smart speakers, the best smart bulbs, the best smart security and the best mesh networks can get expensive. That’s why it’s always worth looking out for the best deals while you can.
I’ve collated some of my top picks from all the deals on Amazon right now. I was pleased to see smart lighting products from Philips Hue make an appearance. But there discounts on TP-Link Tapo products as well, which is a cheaper alternative. Their WiFi-connected bulbs are even more affordable this Prime Day, perfect if you just want a smart light dotted around here and there, and would make great gifts.
Best Amazon Prime Day deals on smart home tech
Echo Show 5 + Ring Video Doorbell Wired by Amazon: was £107.00, now £49.99 at Amazon
You can buy the Ring Video Doorbell Wired by Amazon alongside the Echo Show 5 for more than 50% off on Prime Day. The tiny doorbell packs in HD video, two-way talk and night vision - and you’ll be able to watch the footage using the smart display. They work really well together, but you will have to buy a Ring Chime separately to hear the bell through the house.

Amazon Echo (4th Gen): was £84.99, now £54.99 at Amazon
Sitting towards the top of T3’s guide to the best smart speakers, the Amazon Echo (4th Gen) is discounted by almost 40% for Prime Day. Its ball-like shape makes it sound superb from wherever you’re stood in the room and gives it a smart edge if that’s your style. Although some might not be so keen on the design. Generally speaking though, this smart speaker is a fantastic buy.
