Prime Day is ideal for people who want to start or update their smart home setup. Not only are Amazon’s own smart home products on sale, but many other manufacturers are as well, with major price cuts on everything from smart lights to plugs to cameras and beyond.
However, deciding what gadgets to get can be a challenging prospect. We’ve gathered five great devices under $50, so you can upgrade your home for less.
Amazon Smart Plug — 35% off
Amazon’s smart plug is exactly what it should be: straightforward. It’s quick and simple to set up; simply connect it in and press the notice on your Alexa app to begin. This is a must-have gadget if this is your first venture into the realm of smart home devices. It is, however, only compatible with Alexa, so if you use Google Home or Google Assistant, you should pass on it.
Amazon Echo Dot (4th Gen) — 60% off
The Echo Dot is Amazon’s cheapest Echo device, and it’s now even cheaper. While it lacks some of the capabilities of its bigger brother (the Amazon Echo), it still has everything you desire in a smart speaker. This is an excellent opportunity to get an Echo device since you will not find a better offer for a long time.
Kasa Smart Plug Power Strip HS300 — $33 off
Kasa’s smart strip is the ideal answer for people who have a house full of smart gadgets. Individual smart plugs are good, but you may run out of storage capacity. Alexa, Google Assistant, and the Kasa app may be used to operate each of the six ports independently. You’ll also receive surge protection and a handy energy monitoring feature via the app.

All Amazon Fire TV products are on sale, so whether you want to upgrade to the Max version or need the Fire TV Cube for extra storage, Prime Day is the best time to pick one up.

Another simple addition, GE’s smart lights are the ideal complement to your new Echo device. You may select to have them automatically connect with Alexa when they arrive at checkout, so all you have to do is screw them in to get started. They also function with Google Assistant, but you must connect them manually using the Google Home app. Overall, these are excellent LED smart bulbs that will not be perplexing.
