Amazon Prime Day is here, making it one of the best times of the year to save big on hot new tech. Whether you’re in the market for a smart speaker, thermostat, doorbell or lightbulb, it’s never been cheaper — or easier — to start living in the smart home of your dreams. To help make that dream a reality, we rounded up the best smart home deals to shop on Amazon today.

The Echo Show 15 is Amazon’s newest, and largest, Echo Show to date. This 15.6-inch giant of an Alexa smart display was designed to hang on the wall rather than sit on a counter or nightstand. See more Echo Show deals here.

The new fifth-gen Echo Dot maintains the useful features and affordability of previous models, plus upgrades like better audio quality, temperature sensors and Wi-Fi extending capabilities. Right now you can score discounts on the Dot, plus smart bulb bundles.

This colorful, budget-friendly smart speaker is over half off ahead of Prime Day. The Alexa-enabled Echo Pop makes smart home integration easy, boasting thousands of skills to streamline your everyday. 

Get a move on with this swiveling Echo Show 10 smart display, which will follow your voice as you move around a room. Great for staying in the picture for video calls or if you’re watching your favorite show while making dinner.

Combining a smart speaker with a vibrant screen and all the powers of Alexa, you can use the Echo Show for video calls, get visual responses from Alexa and even watch TV shows or movies.

If you’re looking for a more powerful sound than what the Dot or Pop can give you, enter the Echo Studio. It offers a wider and more immersive audio experience (so great for pairing with a TV), and it’s now 23% off.

Want to take your Echo Dot to a galaxy far, far away? You can now get an Echo Dot plus a Darth Vader-, Stormtrooper- or Grogu-themed stand for up to 40% off.

These smart plugs work with Alexa, Echo and Google Home. Now at $6 a pop, it’s a deal you can’t miss. See more Kasa smart plug deals here.

You can schedule lights, fans and appliances to turn on and off automatically, and even control them through your phone with this little plug. And now it’s nearly 50% off.

Our editors’ favorite smart garage controller, the Chamberlain MyQ, is easy to install, and it’s an excellent value for a gadget that’ll give you reliable peace of mind.

Right now you can score our pick for the best smart thermostat at a nicely discounted price. The Nest Thermostat gives you a well-designed interface, remote app controls and the ability to toggle between modes, presets and set schedules.

Even before this discounted price, we thought the Amazon Smart Thermostat offered all the best functions of the priciest thermostat for a budget price. Now you can nab it for even less and use Alexa’s voice control to easily save cash on your energy bill.

You can get a real steal on everyone’s favorite programmable lightbulb with this three-pack of Philips Hues going for more than 40% off.

If you wanna take your mood lighting to the next level, this Philips Hue starter pack comes with three lightbulbs and a Hue Bridge and Button, which can help program and make changing the colors literally happen at the click of a button.

Ring Video doorbells are an easy way to upgrade your home security. The devices pair with the Ring app, which lets you check who’s at your door from anywhere. Plus, you can talk with whoever is ringing your bell with two-way communication capabilities. See more Ring deals here.

Ring’s Video Doorbell 2 Pro uses radar to give you highly accurate motion alerts, has stellar-looking video with a wide, tall field of view and crisp audio and can even show you on a map the route someone took as they made their way to your door. No wonder we named it the best video doorbell of the year.

You can keep a close eye on your property with a spotlight camera like this one, our top pick for the best wireless outdoor security camera. The battery-powered Arlo offers 1080p video and easy installation.
