Cove security systems
70% off Cove packages

Whether motion sensors or video doorbells, investing in a home security system can be expensive. Luckily, there are still plenty of Memorial Day sales to shop at Amazon, Best Buy and more. If you've been thinking about upping your home security to ease your mind, we found the best Memorial Day home security deals to save you some cash. Just hurry before they expire.

We keep our list current with the latest sales for Memorial Day, where you can save 30% to 50% on home security tech from our top-recommended brands. Before you buy, make sure the discounted product is compatible with your current smart home setup (for example, Google Home or Apple's HomeKit) and your overall privacy goals. You'll also want a strong home router for connecting any outdoor cams.

For more, check out our tested lists of the best home security systems for renters, best value video doorbells and best smart locks in 2024.

Best Memorial Day home security cam deals


While it's a little more expensive than budget cams, this EufyCam is 40% off for Prime members, with an unprecedented opportunity to get rare features like Apple Home compatibility and object recognition with no additional fee. It also offers a 2K resolution and IP67 weatherproof rating, as well as night vision. You don't usually see a high-end outdoor cam at this price, but keep in mind, if you want video storage, you'll need to buy a Eufy hub and microSD card. Or you could choose this two-cam Eufy package that comes with a hub and is $110 off thanks to a similar deal. 


Pet cameras can watch out for intruders, but their primary focus is the Fidos and Felixes in our homes. They can be expensive purchases, but this sale cuts the price by nearly a third. This HD camera has Alexa built-in and can provide motion and audio alerts, along with night vision. It even has one of those little treat dispensers to interact with your pet; just don't overfeed them when you're away. 

Did you know? We have an Amazon Storefront with some of the best Memorial Day deals available.

Best Memorial Day home security bundle deals


TP-Link's affordable Tapo system includes two 2K-resolution cams and a connection hub, ideal for a front-and-back camera setup at your home. The cameras are weatherproofed, come with 49-foot night vision, and allow you to set activity zones for identifying people, pets and vehicles. They're all-purpose outdoor security cams that can fill many roles, although you may want to grab a microSD card if you don't plan on using the Tapo subscription service.


Ring is one of our top picks for easy DIY installation if you want a speedy system equipped with door and window sensors. The five-piece model is a perfect starting point, and this bundle throws in the Ring video doorbell for front door protection as well. A Ring subscription (starting at $5) is a very good idea, but it's still an excellent choice for a discounted starter kit.


If you're a fan of Ecobee (its products work reliably with Apple HomeKit, Alexa and more) you can deck your home out in Ecobee security and a smart thermostat with this deal. Save on a start sensor pack, an Ecobee video doorbell and the Thermostat Premium. That's a good combo if you've experimented with Ecobee products before and are ready to jump into a whole smart home setup. Note that the doorbell is wired in this pack.


Finding a large home security system can feel frustrating if you don't want to spend hundreds of dollars and risk getting locked into a contract. Using this hefty discount, this SimpliSafe system is available for less than $300, and while a monitoring subscription is available, you can choose to self-monitor and waive the monthly fees.

Included in this kit is a base station, keypad, pack of entry sensors, motion sensor, key fob, siren and smoke detector. That makes it an effective DIY way to outfit a new home or apartment that's never had security tech before.

Best Memorial Day smart lock deal

August Home/CNET

August's durable smart construction often comes with a price to match, but this deal lets you get a fourth-generation August smart lock on more affordable terms. The Wi-Fi smart lock fits onto your existing deadbolt, providing it with app management including the ability to share digital keys. You can also set schedules or make sure the door automatically locks after a certain period. The lock also has excellent compatibility, working with platforms including Alexa, HomeKit, Google Home and Samsung SmartThings.

Best Memorial Day deals on smart home tech


If you're looking for simpler security tech, these little doorstops sound an alarm when they're activated. That's it, they just help you know when a door has been opened. Sometimes that's all you need, and at under $15, this pair is currently a very good deal.

Best Memorial Day sale security platform pick


Cove's offers DIY security systems with an onsite kit builder to quickly customize your home security sensors, leak detectors, cameras and other important add-ons. Cove is a good pick for those who want a hybrid of traditional home security (subscriptions and professional monitoring are generally required with Cove) with the ease of DIY setup and no contracts. Sign up to get 70% off qualifying systems and Cove will throw in a free camera, too.

What is the best time to buy home security devices?

While prices fluctuate year round, the best prices on home security devices including cameras and smart locks, are often during Amazon's Prime Day, held each year in early July, when Amazon slashes prices and its competitors step up to match those. Black Friday and holiday sales also bring some great prices, but some Memorial Day sales are still lingering, which means if you're shopping for a home security device, now is the best time to snag a deal before midsummer. 

How we choose the best Memorial Day security device deals 

At CNET we have a team of expert shoppers and deal-hunters with years of experience. Our goal is to make sure buyers understand which major sales and deals are legitimately good and which are more routine, such as Black Friday, Prime Day, Memorial Day and countless other shopping events. We've gotten very good at weeding out scams and superficial deals so you see only the best offers on security devices from retailers all over. 

We look for real discounts, quality reviews and remaining sale time when choosing a deal to show you.

  • Real discounts mean exactly that. We look at the price history for that product to make sure no manufacturers are inflating prices to make the discount seem more substantial than it is.
  • Reviews are important for any product, but especially for deeply discounted items. If an item breaks the first time you use it, the deal isn't a good one at any price.
  • Remaining sale time is a huge part of our vetting process. If a deal seems like it will only be around for a short while or will only be available for the remaining stock, we'll let you know upfront so you don't come back to the deal later only to be disappointed.

We keep our articles as up-to-date as possible to bring you the best current prices.
