Smart home tech is getting bigger every year. What started out as just turning on your lights from an app has extended to smart heating, security, and even kitchens, while virtual assistants like Amazon Alexa and Siri are now trying to work their way into every room in your home.
Still, replacing every appliance you own with a smart version could quickly get very expensive, so it makes sense to pick up smart tech at smart prices. We're rounding up the best savings we can find right here.

What to expect
First up, smart speakers like the Amazon Echo and Google Home often see price cuts, especially as Amazon and Google duke it out to provide your virtual assistant of choice. They're both keen to get as many smart devices into homes as possible before Apple's HomePod arrives.
Amazon Certified Refurbished deals
You can find certified refurbished Amazon smart home devices at a lower price than the original RRP. Amazon tests all refurbished devices rigorously to ensure it works just as new; the company also provides a 1 year warranty.
Third-Party speakers deals
Third-party speaker manufacturers with smart support are also sometimes discounted, though they're less aggressive. More expensive smart home products like thermostats and full lighting kits see big offers, but keep an eye on smaller products like smart plugs or single smart bulbs - the savings might be smaller, but if you're planning on picking up a few it can really add up.
Where to find smart home deals
Most major electronics retailers sell smart home stuff, along with just about anywhere else that sells tech.
Amazon often has some of the biggest bargains. If you find that you’re missing out on Amazon’s Lightning deals, which run for just a few hours and offer limited stock, we'd recommend signing up for Amazon's 30 day free trial of Prime, which will get you access to deals 30 minutes before everyone else.
