If you're looking for a wireless home security system that won't break the bank, for a limited time, Amazon's budget friendly Blink XT Home Security Camera is on sale for $77.99. This deals knocks $52 off the camera's $130 regular price. Even better, purchase any Blink system and you'll get a free 3rd Gen Echo Dot.

Your smart home needs plugs and smart bulbs for you to control with Alexa. Amazon is offering the Wemo Mini Smart Plug or the LIFX White Smart LED Bulb for $10 each via coupon code "SMART10". That's hands-down the best price we've seen for either device, which normally sell for around $20 when they're on sale.
There is a catch. For the coupon to work, you must own an Echo or Sonos One device. Moreover, the coupon will only work if you didn't participate in Amazon's last $10 smart plug sale, which occurred just before Prime Day. And the offer only is good while supplies last, Amazon says.
