Amazon Prime Day is almost upon us, so it’s time to start planning your shopping. In years past, some great deals have been offered on Amazon smart home products. Last year, prices were slashed on a number of these devices, including the Amazon Cloud Cam and Amazon Echo.

This year, there are already markdowns on some of the devices. Here are some of the deals on Amazon Smart Home products that are currently being offered or are expected to be offered as part of the sale on July 15 and 16.

Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Generation) For $24.99 (Marked Down From $49.99)

The third-generation Echo Dot pairs with Alexa to provide music, news, information and more with simple voice commands. The smart speaker offers rich, stereo sound and can be connected to other speakers via Bluetooth. Control your smart home by turning on lights, adjusting thermostats and locking doors with compatible connected devices.


Amazon Cloud Cam Security Camera For $89.99 (Marked Down From $119.99)

The Amazon Cloud Cam allows you to keep tabs on the activity surrounding your home from anywhere. Once it catches something, you’ll get an alert right away. You can check in via the Cloud Cam mobile app at any time. It can see in the dark and includes two-way audio.


myQ Smart Garage Door Opener (Chamberlain MYQ-G0301) + Amazon Cloud Cam For $99.98 (Marked Down from $188.99)

Prime members in certain areas with the opener can opt-in to get Amazon packages delivered inside their garage. Never worry about your packages being stolen again!

This is the doorbell you think of when you hear “smart doorbell.” The Ring Video Doorbell Pro gives you crystal-clear video night or day, cloud video storage and the ability to have two-way conversations. Amazon currently has it marked down to $169 (from $249 — an $80 savings!) and there are sure to be more Prime Day markdowns for it as well.


And this is just the beginning. Once the two-day Prime Day event arrives, many more deals will be coming your way. Think smart doorbells, smart lights and other connected gadgets. This is a great chance to bring your home into the modern age. Are you excited yet?
