After being delayed to October last year due to the public health crisis, Prime Day 2021 is back to business as usual. This year’s Prime Day deals officially start on Monday, with the Prime Day 2021 date set on June 21 and June 22. Excitement is high and the discounts are deep with Prime Day smart home deals you can buy today. To help you get ready, we’ve put together this quick and handy shopping guide that includes our expectations for this year’s Prime Day smart home deals, along with some bargains you can shop right now.

The best smart home deals happening now

Prime Day is happening soon, but you can check out these smart home deals in the meantime and see if anything catches your eye:

What Prime Day smart home deals to expect

We’re expecting to see a lot of Prime day smart home deals on devices from top makers including Ring, Google, and especially Amazon itself during the big sale. Smart speakers (like Amazon’s Echo lineup), smart TVs, security cameras, smart doorbells, smart routers, and streaming sticks are all great items to keep your eyes peeled for during Prime Day. This big sale is an especially good time of the year to score discounts on Amazon’s own excellent smart home product lines.

That said, there are a few things every shopper should keep in mind. Always do your research prior to the event so you know what you’re looking for and don’t feel overwhelmed by the number of deals. Even though you can never go wrong with any of the aforementioned names, be cautious when you’re shopping for accessories or other smart devices to add to your smart home from other brands. Always check reviews and ratings if it’s a maker you’ve never heard of before. Finally, always trust your gut: If a deal looks suspicious, stay far away from it. Third-party sellers also use Prime Day as an excuse to offload inventory, so not all deals you see will necessarily be worth your time.

What Prime Day smart home deals we saw last year

Smart home gadgets are a hot item and the ones we saw on sale for Prime Day 2020 are too numerous to list. However, a few of the best Prime Day smart home deals that popped up last year offered shoppers some of the lowest prices we’ve seen on Amazon’s own stuff, including their excellent Alexa-powered Echo smart speakers. Smart home tech isn’t just limited to speakers and appliances, though; smart TVs count, too, and we saw some nice deals on those as well. Amazon also has its fingers in that pie with its Fire TVs and streaming sticks (the Fire TV stick was on sale for half off last Prime Day) and those got some very nice markdowns.

Should you buy new smart home gear on Prime Day?

Smart home devices are always in high demand no matter what time of the year it is. If you are in need of a new smart home device, we suggest buying it on Prime Day rather than holding off until Black Friday or even Cyber Monday as demand will be at its peak. This means that the device you had your eye on might be out of stock or see an extended shipping delay on Black Friday, keeping you from getting your new smart home product until early next year. Prices between the two events shouldn’t vary by much either so don’t let that hold you back from taking advantage of these Prime Day smart home deals.
