Connected gadgets are making today's home smarter than ever, and everyone from Amazon to Samsung is competing for a spot inside your house. Even your kitchen is becoming a technology hub with gadgets designed to make cooking — and life in general — easier.
For Presidents' Day, Amazon is discounting several smart home devices. The sale includes the Echo Dot (now $39.99) and the 2nd-gen Echo (now $84.99). If you have a particularly large home or apartment, we recommend getting the Echo with Echo Dot Bundle for $104.98. It's $20 cheaper than buying bot at their current sale price.
For anyone who's just dipping their toes into the smart home realm, you can get the popular and highly rated TP-Link Smart Plug for $24.99. The Alexa-compatible device normally retails for $39.99 and lets you remotely control any device that is plugged into it.
Another smart home device for the cash-strapped shopper is the Eufy Genie Smart Speaker with Alexa. We found that this Echo Dot clone costs less than Amazon's popular speaker and manages to sound better. For a limited time, you can get the Genie for an all-time low of $19.99.
For more substantial sound, we recommend the Sonos Play:1 Speaker with Alexa, which is currently selling for $149. It's the second-best price we've seen for this smart speaker.
Another smart home gadget that's currently on sale is Netgear's Arlo security camera. You can get the Netgear Arlo Q 1080p Cam 2-Pack for $279.99, which is the lowest price it's ever been. A single Arlo Q Camera costs $159.95 ($60 off). The Ring Video Doorbell 2 is also at its lowest price ever at $169.
To keep your home clean and spotless, Amazon offers the iRobot Roomba 877 for $349. It cleans all types of floors and it's $250 under Best Buy's price.
