Good news for budget-conscious smart home fans. Right now many of our favorite smart home devices are on sale at their lowest prices of the year. This includes mainstream gadgets from Amazon, Nest, Ring, and Google. Without further ado, here are the best smart home deals of the moment. 

Two of Amazon's best smart devices are on sale. Currently, you can get the Echo Dot for $39.99 ($10 off) or the Echo Show for $149.99 ($80 off). The Echo Dot is Amazon's cheapest smart speaker. Yet despite its low price, it can do most things its bigger, pricier siblings can do. It's been cheaper before (we've seen it as low as $29.99), but you're still saving $10. The Echo Show on the other hand is an at all-time price low right now. At $149.99, it's tied as the best deal we've seen for this rarely discounted device.

Amazon also has the Ring Video Doorbell 2 for $169.15 ($30 off). The Ring Video Doorbell 2 is a battery-operated security camera that can be mounted anywhere sans the need for wiring. The 1080p camera can send you instant alerts when your doorbell or its built-in motion sensors are triggered.

Meanwhile, Walmart has a multitude of sales on Google smart home products. First, you can get the Google Home Speaker for $99 ($30 off). Google Home is a worthy rival to Amazon's Echo. It plays nice with Google's massive list of software and can control other smart home devices, Alternatively, you can buy Google Home with Google Home Mini for $113 ($25 off).

Other Google deals at Walmart include:

For anyone who's just dipping their toes into the smart home realm, you can get the popular and highly rated TP-Link Kasa Wi-Fi Smart Plug (HS100) for $19.99 ($20 off). The Alexa- and Google- compatible device normally retails for $39.99 and lets you remotely control any device that is plugged into it. If you need more than one, purchase two separately because the TP-Link HS100 2-Pack costs for $44.99.

    pokies! a Sonos one has Alexa built into it. you've given the people a link to the old rubbish sounding Sonos Play:1. I use 2 Play:1 speakers for surround sound which is just fine but they're utter rubbish for music when played in the same room as a Sonos One with Alexa built in. if a person buys the play:1 they still need to but at least an echo dot and I paid less for my Sonos One with Alexa integrated than I did for my Play:1 and an Alexa dot.
