Cyber Monday Smart Home Deals

Amazon Smart Plug — $13, was $25

Amazon Smart Plug.

Cyber Monday smart home deals are sure to be popular this year with everyone looking to save on their energy bills. The Amazon Smart Plug is one of the best smart plugs around thanks to being incredibly cheap and easy to set up while supporting routines, schedules, and even offering up energy-saving tips. As you would expect from an Amazon product, the Amazon Smart Plug works with Alexa so you can use your voice to set things up or check out the Alexa dashboard for some smart energy-saving advice.

The Alexa energy dashboard is capable of estimating consumption before suggesting what could help. From there, you can schedule all manners of items from lights to fans and appliances, so you can turn them on and off automatically, or choose to control them remotely while you’re away. Such scheduling is useful for numerous reasons. You can make sure nothing is switched on unnecessarily, planning ahead with how you plan on using appliances. You can also set up lights to switch on even when you’re away so that potential intruders are warded off. The beauty of the Amazon Smart Plug is that it takes no time at all to arrange while making pretty much anything with a plug smarter than before.

The Amazon Smart Plug is easy to set up as all you need to do is plug it in and open the Alexa app. It doesn’t take up room either as it has a compact design which means the second outlet next to it is always free to use however you require. These are the kind of plugs that you’ll find yourself owning multiples of each as it means you can organize your home far more efficiently than through traditional means. A true money-saver when set up correctly, you’ll soon reap the results as your home runs better than before.

One of the best streaming devices around for anyone who doesn’t need a 4K streaming device, the Amazon Fire TV Stick is a bargain if you have an older TV with no streaming support. Even if your TV does offer streaming app support, it’s unlikely to be as speedy or as easy to use as the Amazon Fire TV Stick. Having a dedicated device for streaming is generally more practical in terms of having continuing support for apps and services.

The Amazon Fire TV Stick is simple from start to finish in this way. It takes moments to set up with you soon able to use the stick’s Alexa voice remote to control the action. Whether you want to tap in commands or speak your directions, the Amazon Fire TV Stick knows what to do next. It’s 50% more powerful than the previous generation of Fire TV Stick with the ability to stream more than 1 million movies and TV episodes from pretty much every streaming service you can think of. You can also watch live TV with it if you have a subscription to Sling TV or YouTube TV. There are even free services such as popular ad-supported streaming apps like IMDb TV, Tubi, Pluto TV, and more.

However you plan on watching, the Amazon Fire TV Stick makes it easy to search for content. Preset buttons for apps like Netflix, Disney+, and Hulu mean you can quickly access them, while the Amazon Fire TV Stick has Dolby Atmos support so if your home audio system supports it, you can enjoy a far more immersive experience than before. It’s a great way of bringing your current TV up to date with the latest technology.

Amazon Fire 7 Tablet — $30, was $50

A woman reads Where the Crawdad Sings on an Amazon Fire 7 Tablet.

If you’ve been searching for a cheap tablet, the Amazon Fire 7 Tablet is a reasonable bet. It’s not as impressive as the Amazon Fire HD 10 but its more budget-friendly build means it’s easily one of the best tablets for kids if your needs are slight and you want to keep costs low. The tablet offers a 7-inch IPS display that is more than suitable enough for watching streaming content or playing games while on the move, without having to switch over to using a smaller smartphone.

The Amazon Fire 7 Tablet offers up 16GB of internal storage but you can easily increase that by up to 512GB with a microSD card. Such flexibility is great for kids. If your child mostly uses a tablet to browse the internet or stream music or TV shows, you can keep storage low but if you want to install games for them, you can increase the storage and let them do more with it. A 1.3GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of memory means that the Amazon Fire 7 Tablet isn’t speedy but it still plays simple games fairly well.

The Amazon Fire 7 Tablet is also useful for when you need to work on the move. You can use apps like Zoom, Outlook, or OneNote to stay on top of things. As well as that, the Amazon Fire 7 Tablet has 2MP front and rear-facing cameras with 720p HD video recording. That’s sufficient for taking video calls although you probably don’t want to take photos with this tablet. There’s also Alexa support so you can speak to the device, as well as control other devices through it. While the Amazon Fire 7 Tablet isn’t an expert at any one thing, it’s a reasonable all-rounder for the price, and it’s sure to entertain kids or keep you productive throughout the day with up to seven hours of battery life. It’s easily one of the best Cyber Monday tablet deals for anyone keeping costs down.

 Amazon Kindle — $45, was $90

A Kindle placed next to a smartphone on top of a shoulder bag.

If you like the idea of the Kindle Kids edition but don’t want it wrapped up in the kid-friendly bundle, you can grab the same Kindle on its own. It’s the exact same Kindle as the one with kid-friendly wrapping, meaning it’s the Kindle 10th gen, but this time it comes without a cover, although you can buy one separately, whether printed or fabric, so you have a couple of choices. Also, keep in mind this version is the ad-supported one, which means you get ads in the screensaver and at the bottom of your home screen, which isn’t too bad and does decrease the overall cost. If you want ads removed, you can pay a one-time cost worth the difference, which is about $20, so it’s not too bad.

As for the screen, it’s 6 inches and glare-free, which is great if you want to take it out to read during the daytime, and with 167 ppi the text is pretty crisp. There aren’t as many LED front lights as the Paperwhite, but there are enough that it’s still well lit, and you can get enough warm colors at night to read without straining your eyes. It’s also pretty lightweight, coming in at 6.1 ounces, making it easy to read one-handed for long periods if that’s what you prefer. Even better, Amazon throws in a one-year limited warranty on it, a nice deal for a budget product, so you’re at least somewhat protected in the worst-case scenario.

Much like the Paperwhite, the original Kindle has Bluetooth, which allows you to listen to audiobooks and transition seamlessly between reading and listening, and with 8GB of storage, you can store thousands of books and dozens if not hundreds of audiobooks. Battery life is also pretty impressive, giving you about a week or two of regular reading before it needs a charge. Of course, keep in mind that this can vary depending on how much you read and how bright you set the screen, but five to ten days is about what you’re likely to experience.

The Apple iPad 10.2 is one of the best tablets around thanks to being so keenly priced. It’s the cheapest iPad out there but it still offers a lot of useful features.

It’s perhaps best suited for family use with the Apple iPad 10.2 often being a good purchase to entertain the kids, without spending a fortune on a more powerful iPad.

Strong stereo speakers and mics also mean you can hear as well as be heard well while you’re on a call. The Apple iPad 10.2 rounds off the extensive feature list with up to 10 hours of battery life, along with Touch ID support so you won’t have to enter so many passwords manually.
