If you’ve ever shopped for affordable security cameras, you might have already come across Zmodo. As a brand, it’s not as popular and flashy as Ring or Nest, but it offers some of the most affordable security cameras we’ve seen. Can Zmodo’s prices go any lower this coming Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Let’s find out!
Zmodo Discounts and Deals
We have good news and bad news for you. The good news is that Zmodo’s cameras cost no more than $100 apiece. So if you need a bunch of cameras for your home or property and don’t want to spend a lot, Zmodo is definitely a viable option. The bad news is that Zmodo hasn’t been very active when it comes to offering Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. In the past seven years, we’ve only seen it offer Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals twice, in 2014 and in 2018.
- 2014: Zmodo had a great Black Friday deal on its four-channel, HD camera system saving customers $270.
- 2018: Zmodo gave us up to 40-percent off select devices on Black Friday.1 Following that, Zmodo dropped the price of its products by 50 percent on Cyber Monday.
Will Zmodo have any deals this year? We’re not holding our breath. However, while Zmodo might not have Black Friday discounts again this year, retailers that sell its cameras might. Unlike last year, we expect to see more in-store discounts on Black Friday now that we’re transitioning to the new normal. If there are brick-and-mortar stores near you that sell Zmodo cameras, pay them a visit on or around Black Friday. You might just find yourself a discount.
Tip: Zmodo’s posts on its Facebook page actively. If the company ends up offering Black Friday deals this year, that’s where you’ll likely hear about them first. Also be sure to bookmark this page and check back often. We’ll continue to update this page as the newest Zmodo holiday deals are announced.
The Cost of Zmodo Security
While Zmodo does not participate in Black Friday sales often, it is pretty good at bundling its cameras and discounting prices, with two, three, and four-packs available for those with larger homes or businesses. Of course, you can buy individual cameras, which start at just $29.99. You can also purchase refurbished versions of Zmodo’s older cameras.

Zmodo Company History
Zmodo was founded in 2009, over a decade ago, and the company has sold millions of products since. In 2018, it added integrations with Alexa and Google Assistant, and the next year, it attended the Consumer Electronics Show for the fourth time.2 While Zmodo certainly isn’t as well known as camera companies like Ring or Arlo, its devices are comparable, and often less expensive. That said, if you’re looking for a more robust home security setup, check out our latest Ring vs. Arlo comparison.
