The battle for your home is expected to heat up in the coming years. Tech giants like Apple, Google, Amazon, and Samsung are vying to become your smart home platform of choice. In an attempt to get inside your house first, Samsung has deeply discounted a variety of its SmartThings devices.

Samsung acquired SmartThings back in 2014 for $200 million. Since then, SmartThings has become Samsung’s line for home automation devices. Based in Washington, D.C., SmartThings offers a variety of smart home gadgets, many of which are on sale below. Plus, activate coupon code “welcome10” during checkout to take an extra in-cart discount for each deal below. Sale ends October 29.

Samsung SmartThings Outlet for $39:


One of the easiest — and most affordable — ways to dip your toes into the world of home automation is via a smart outlet, such as Samsung’s SmartThings Outlet. Just plug any electronic device into the smart outlet and you’ll instantly be able to control lights, small appliances, and other electronics remotely. Originally priced at $55, you can now buy it for $39 via the aforementioned coupon. Keep in mind you’ll need to pair it with a SmartThings hub to get it working.

Samsung SmartThings Home Monitoring Kit for $174:


The SmartThings Home Monitoring Kit is an all-inclusive package that instantly gives your home smart capabilities. It comes with a SmartThings Hub, Motion Sensor, and Outlet. The Hub supports whatever compatible sensors you place around your home (this bundle includes one SmartThings sensor) and can relay data over the Internet and directly to the SmartThings app. It even incorporates a battery pack that keeps the Hub ticking along in the event of a power outage. Priced at $249, it’s been discounted down to $174.

Samsung SmartThings Motion Sensor from $28:


The SmartThings Motion Sensor is like having a digital security guard in your home. It can trigger lights or other electronic appliances the instant it senses movement in your home. Alternatively, it can send you alerts whenever it detects movement in certain areas of your home or if your children (or pets) enter off-limit areas. It requires a SmartThings hub and cab be purchased individually or in 2- and 5-packs for $28, $53, or $126, respectively.

Samsung SmartThings Hub for $64:


The SmartThings Hub acts as the command center for your home’s smart devices. It connects wirelessly to each compatible smart device and relays information to you via the SmartThings app. As mentioned before, it also sports a built-in battery pack (AA batteries x4) that can keep the Hub powered for up to 10 hours in the event of a power outage. Currently, you can get the Hub for $64.
