Whether you’re securing your home or business, smart security isn’t always cheap, which is why Black Friday and Cyber Monday discounts come in handy. Meet Zmodo, a brand of security cameras and video doorbells that has had some pretty awesome deals in the past. What’s on track for 2020? Read on to find out.
Discounts and Deals
While we haven’t seen any Zmodo Black Friday or Cyber Monday discounts from 2019 or 2020, they did have some pretty good deals in 2018 and earlier.
- 2014: In 2014, Zmodo had a great Black Friday deal on its four-channel, HD camera system saving customers $270.1
- 2018: Two years ago, Zmodo gave us up to 40 percent off select devices on Black Friday.2 They had had a Cyber Monday sale for up to 50 percent off,3 even better.
We’re hoping to have a repeat of 2018 or better, especially on Cyber Monday now that many physical retail businesses are still closed due to COVID-19.
Tip: To find out about Zmodo sales as soon as they’re announced, follow the company on Facebook and turn notifications on whenever they post.

While Zmodo’s prices are subject to change, particularly with the aforementioned discounts, we laid them out for you below so you can have a ballpark idea of what you’ll be spending.

Zmodo Company History
Zmodo was founded in 2009 over a decade ago, and since, has sold almost 8 million items. In 2018, they added integrations with Alexa and Google Assistant, and the next year, they attended the Consumer Electronics Show for the fourth time.4 While Zmodo certainly isn’t as well known as camera companies like Ring or Nest, their devices are comparable, and often less expensive.
Although Zmodo hasn’t been the absolute most generous when it comes to Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals in the past, we’re hoping for big things in 2020. Last year, for example, the U.S saw $9.2 billion spent on Cyber Monday.5 Can we top it this year? Only time will tell! Learn more in our Zmodo review or our page on Zmodo’s pricing.
