Amazon drops post-Prime Day deals on Scout Alarm DIY smart home security kits

Prime Day 2019 may be behind us, but Walmart’s Google Week and Big Save promotions continue through today. That means some good deals remain, without the need to wait until Black Friday. Amazon itself picked up the pace today in smart home devices with a 24-hour countdown sale on the highly respected Scout Alarm Home Security product line.

When Digital Trends picked Scout as one of the best home security systems of 2019, we praised the company’s highly flexible model. You can choose exactly the components you need in the color and finish you want. Scout also sells kits, such as the 5-piece and 9-piece kits below. You don’t need a monitoring contract, either, because the Scout app alerts you quickly to problems. If you do choose to sign up for professional 24/7 monitoring, the charge is $20 a month with no long-term contracts.

Scout Alarm Systems integrate with more smart home platforms that most other security systems, including Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Nest Cameras, Nest Protect, Philips Hue, Yale Locks, IFTTT, and LIFX. If you want a highly customizable, comprehensive home security system that lets you choose colors and finishes to match your home decorating, and that works with an unmatched array of smart home ecosystem standards, these five deals on Scout alarm kits and components can help you save up to $135. This sale ends at 11:59 p.m. PT July 17, so don’t miss out.

Scout Alarm Water Sensor – $12 off

The Scout Alarm Water Sensor is one of several Scout products you can add to an existing Scout Alarm System. When you set it in place and connect the wireless water sensor to your alarm system, the sensor sends an alert the instant it detects a leak, hopefully in time to minimize damage. Scout suggests placing a water sensor under sinks, near washing machines, or in basements. We also recommend putting one under your water heater because they don’t last forever and when water heaters fail they often cause water damage (speaking from sad experience).

Instead of the usual $39 price, Amazon cut the Scout Alarm Water Sensor to just $27 during this sale. If you want to add a water leak detector to a Scout alarm system at a great price, don’t hesitate to buy it while this deal is still active.
