Kasa Smart Plug Mini 3-pack, $49.99 (originally $54.99) [Was just $39.99 on Prime Day last year]

Smart plugs are great, but if you want one that looks a little better it’s worth considering an in-wall plug. The Kasa smart in-wall plug has to be wired in place of an existing outlet, after which you’ll be able to control it from your home and use it in conjunction with Amazon’s Alexa and the Google Assistant. It’s just $5 off at the time of writing, but if you want to save another $10 or more from Amazon you’ll have to wait.

Kasa Cam indoor camera, $59.99 (originally $99.99) [Was just $52.49 on Prime Day last year]

Perhaps you only really need one camera – in that case, there’s the Kasa Cam. The Kasa Cam indoor camera works with both Alexa and Google Assistant. It’s relatively well-designed and subtle, too, so if someone does break into your home they’ll have less of a chance of spotting it. This one wasn’t that deep of a deal last year, so this year could be even better.

Kasa Cam Outdoor camera, $79.99 (originally $139.99) [Was just $72.09 on Prime Day last year]

The camera has a built-in siren and 2-days free cloud storage, so it’s a pretty versatile device. This wasn’t that big of a deal to begin with, so you could hop on this right now and not miss much in savings.

August Smart Lock Pro 3rd Gen, $170.89 (originally $229.99) [Was just $160.99 on Prime Day last year]

A great smart lock allows you to easily lock and unlock your door straight from your smartphone. The August Smart Lock Pro is well-designed and fits over your existing deadbolt, so you don’t need to completely do away with your keys if you don’t want to. Once installed, you’ll be able to lock and unlock the device through the August app, but only when you’re in Bluetooth range – for other options, you’ll have to get the Smart Lock Pro + Connect below.

August Smart Lock Pro + Connect, $164.90 (originally $279.99) [Was $175.00 on Prime Day last year]

The August Smart Lock Pro is great by itself, but if you really want to unlock the power of a smart lock, then it’s worth considering getting the lock with the August Connect. That way, you can connect the device to Wi-Fi and control it from anywhere in the world. You’ll also be able to integrate the lock with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple HomeKit, which makes it infinitely more versatile. With the Connect, the lock is only $15 more, so we think it’s well worth the price – and now it’s even cheaper than before.

This lock offers a PIN code touch pad that you can use to lock and unlock your door, plus it works with smart home ecosystems like Samsung SmartThings, Wink, and more. This one may be worth waiting for to save an additional $50 or so.

The security camera can be set up with Alexa and monitored through the Echo Show.

Amazon Echo Show 5, $64.99 (originally $89.99) [Was just $49.99 on Prime Day last year]

The Amazon Echo Show 5 is basically a smaller version of the standard Echo Show, and it’s a great option for those who want to deck out their home with a bunch of them. The device offers many of the same features as the standard Echo Show, but it has a smaller screen and slightly less powerful speakers. It’ll still display information about weather and other events, though.

Amazon Echo Show 5 + Blink XT2 security camera, $164.98 (originally $189.98) [Was just $109.98 on Prime Day last year]

Amazon has been building some great security cameras with its brand called Blink. This deal will get you the Echo Show 5 with the Blink XT. With this bundle, you’ll be able to monitor footage from the camera on your Echo Show. If the Echo Show 5 was just $50 last year, we imagine this bundle could be even cheaper this time around.

Amazon Echo 2nd Gen, $99.99 (originally $99.99) [Was just $49.99 on Prime Day last year]

Looking for an awesome smart speaker that has Amazon’s super intelligent Alexa digital assistant? The Amazon Echo is an excellent buy. The device offers good sound quality, plus it can be used to interact with your smart home, search the web, and more. Not only that, but $49.99 is perhaps the best price we’ve seen on the Amazon Echo so far, so it’s definitely waiting on another Prime Day deal for this one.

Amazon Echo Dot 3rd Gen, $29.99 (originally $49.99) [Was just $22.00 on Prime Day last year]

The device was available for only $22, but the $29.99 it’s going for at the time of writing isn’t bad either.

Amazon Echo Plus deal

Amazon Echo Plus 2nd Gen, $119.99 (originally $149.99) [Was just $109.99 on Prime Day last year]

The Amazon Echo is great, but some might want a little more volume, in which case we recommend trying out the Amazon Echo Plus. The device offers a bigger and better speaker than the standard Echo, plus it has the smart home standard Zigbee built into it, so you can connect lots of smart home devices without buying extra hubs. Now could be as good as time as any to pick this one up, unless you’re dying to save another $10.
