Google's 2nd gen Nest Hub normally costs $100, but at Wyze you can get it bundled with a Wyze Cam V3, one of our favorite home security cameras, for $70 -- a pretty great deal for anyone hoping to get started with a camera-and-monitor setup in their home.
Level is a smaller home security developer, but it's launched a compelling line of smart locks that hide inside your existing door. They're easy to install, low profile and now cheaper than usual. You can buy the deadbolt that replaces the inner workings of your existing lock for $149 right now, or you can opt for the also-discounted $187 Level Keyless Lock or $233 Level Lock Touch Edition.
Abode's home security system is a great product, if pricey. But its cameras, which can be used with or without the larger system, are much more affordable. The Abode Cam 2, which can be used indoors or out, is on sale now for a super cheap $25, putting it in range of competitors such as Wyze and Blink. What's more, the Abode home security systems are also on sale for as much as $80 off.
Ring's Video Doorbell Wired is already a pretty solid deal at $60, but right now it's down to a mere $42, making it one of the most affordable video doorbells on the market. Sure, it doesn't have all the smarts of those $250 smart buzzers (such as radar and the like), but you'll get reliable performance, 1080p resolution, two-way talk and all the other basics you'd expect from a video doorbell in 2021.
SimpliSafe offers one of the best DIY home security systems on the market for great prices. Right now, though, you can get any of the company's security setups -- which usually cost from $244 to $505 -- for half off. Not only do you get that 50% discount, but you'll also get a free Simplicam (normally $99) with whichever system you buy.
With the coupon code "BF90" you can now get $90 off August's Smart Lock Pro -- a solid lock with tons of extra goodies, like support for the Z-Wave radio protocol, letting it work with lots of smart home gadgets. The one downside: It doesn't work with Wi-Fi.
Google Nest's latest video doorbell is a solid gadget for Google-lovers. It performs well, doesn't require wiring and comes with a lineup of free features like smart alerts and three hours of clip history. For $130, this is a solid deal.
The Arlo Pro 4 is one of the best security cameras on the market, between its 2K live streaming, cooperation with Alexa and Google Assistant and excellent extras, like a spotlight and siren. Now you can buy a three-pack for $200 off -- which is quite the steal, if you've been thinking about overhauling your home monitoring setup.
Blink's super-affordable line of home security gadgets are always pretty wallet-friendly, but the Blink Mini is almost half off right now, at only $20. Sure it doesn't have all the extra goodies of more luxurious smart cams, but if you're looking for a solid performer at an unbeatable price, this is your pick.
It may not seem like the most obvious home security gadget, but a smart speaker like the Amazon Echo Dot can actually buff up your home security. Alexa Guard allows your smart speaker to listen for telltale signs of security problems, like breaking glass. And if you upgrade to Alexa Guard Plus, which costs $5 per month, it adds plenty of other skills, like playing the sounds of dogs barking as a deterrent to would-be burglars.
