What Black Friday smart home deals we saw last year

Last year there were tons of deals on Amazon devices, Google devices, robot vacuums, home security gadgets, and more. The Google Home Mini was just $19 and the Echo Dot could be purchased for as low as $22. The Echo Show 5 was also only $50. A ton of security gadgets including the Google Nest Cam, Canary Flex camera, and Ring Video Doorbell all saw sales up to $120 off. Robot vacuums like the Roomba i7+ received as much as $300 off. Other tech bargains included up to $100 off on air fryers and Instant Pots and up to $50 off on Keurig coffee makers. Even smart home compatible devices like Philips Hue lighting products had their prices marked down by 20%. Other smart devices like the Google Smart TV kit also saw huge price drops and you could purchase one for just $35. You could also buy the Apple HomePod for $100 less.

Should you buy smart home equipment on Black Friday or Cyber Monday?

Most online sales on smart home equipment will be going live by Black Friday itself. This means if any smart home gadget runs out of stock during Black Friday, there won’t be an additional restock for Cyber Monday. With all the pent up demand due to the pandemic, your best bet is to start shopping early. Jump on any Black Friday smart home deals that appeal to you or run the risk of having limited sales available during Cyber Monday. If you do find a better deal during Cyber Monday, you can always return the gadgets you don’t want. Large retailers like Best Buy and Amazon have extended holiday return policies in place this year so you can ship back your unwanted goods till the end of January.
