Amazon Echo second-gen ($70): The refined version of the smart speaker that started it all is on sale for $30 off today. Normally, the second-gen Echo is $100, so if you're still on the fence about getting a smart speaker, today could be a good day to spring. The second-gen Echo took everything we liked about the original Echo and improved on it. Read the CNET review of the Amazon Echo Second Generation.
Amazon Echo Spot ($100): If you want Alexa on your nightstand, the normally $130 Echo Spot doubles as an alarm clock and has a touchscreen so it can show you extra info when you ask questions. You can also use the touchscreen to make video calls and keep track of the time during the night. Read the CNET review of the Amazon Echo Spot.
Amazon Echo Plus ($100): The smart speaker for the smart home fanatic is on sale today too. The Amazon Echo Plus looks the most like the original Echo. It has all of the smarts of the other Echo devices. Plus, it has a built-in Zigbee radio, meaning it can double as a hub for your smaller smart home sensors. Today, you can get it for $50 off, and your purchase includes a free Philips Hue bulb. Read the CNET Review of the Amazon Echo Plus.
Amazon Echo Show ($130): While we wanted the screen on the Amazon Echo Show to do more, it's hard to argue with this price. $130 is a full $100 off the $230 normal price. Like the Spot, the Show illustrates the answers to your questions and allows you to do things with the touchscreen like make video calls with a voice command. Read the CNET review of the Amazon Echo Show.
Amazon Echo Look ($100): The Look gives Alexa a cam and a sense of fashion. You can still talk to the Amazon Echo Look as you would an ordinary Alexa-enabled smart speaker. The cam will take a picture on your voice command. Use it to take a full-body selfie, catalog your wardrobe, and even get style advice based on current trends when comparing two outfits. Normally $200, today's discount is a great deal. Read the CNET review of the Amazon Echo Look.
August third-gen Smart Lock ($111): One of our favorite smart locks is almost $40 off today. The newest August smart lock installs in minutes and works with Amazon's Alexa and Google Assistant. You'll need to add a Connect Wi-Fi module for $80 if you want to control it outside of Bluetooth range, though.
Blink Security Camera ($150): Blink's security cams are on sale today. The two pack of Indoor Cams is sold out, but the three pack is still on sale at a good price. We found Blink's features a bit limited when we tested it in 2016, but $150 is a nice price for three battery powered cams.
The outdoor Blink XT is also on sale in multipacks. The single cam sales of those are sold out as well. Get three cams for $230, which is $90 off of the normal price. Note the outdoor cams won't deliver until Aug. 6. Read the CNET review of the Blink Security Camera.
Netgear Arlo Home Security Light ($400): This motion-activated floodlight for watching over your yard is entirely battery-powered, rather than wired. Stick it anywhere you'd put a floodlight or spotlight light fixture, at about $75 less than its usual price today. Read CNET's review of the Netgear Arlo Home Security Light.
Google WiFi System one-pack ($100): You can also extend one of our other favorite mesh systems today with a Google WiFi for $30 off. Google WiFi can cover 1,500 square feet with a single unit. It's also sold as a three-pack, which can cover 4,500 square feet. Read CNET's review of Google Wifi.
