Smart Home Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals 2024

2024 Black Friday Smart Home Deals Verified

One of the first things we learned when we started growing our smart home is that it can get really expensive. We started off with $20 smart bulbs, and before we knew it, we were spending hundreds of dollars on smart locks, smart speakers, and smart cameras.

Fortunately, shopping holidays like Black Friday and Cyber Monday provide the perfect opportunity to cut down our smart home spending through discounts and special deals. While it’s a little too soon to tell what 2024’s holidays will bring, here’s a look back at some of the biggest deals we saw in 2023.

Smart Home Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2023 Deals

One of the best benefits of smartening up your home is that you also get to make it more secure using smart security devices. Obviously, that’s the type of smart home upgrade we like here at, so today, we’re focusing on the smart home products with a “security” aspect.


Ring Video Doorbell 3

Ring offers deep discounts on a wide variety of products and bundles, which makes it a great option for laying out a smart home foundation. Ring works with a wide range of other brands, including smart locks from Schlage and Kwikset, smart voice assistants, and even connected smoke and CO detectors.

Ring’s Black Friday camera deals last year were pretty substantial — up to 50 percent off in some cases. For instance, the already affordable Ring Indoor Cam, which retails for $59.99, was selling for $29.99.

Ring’s Black Friday video doorbell deals were similar, but where you really saw some savings was with their bundles. The Ring Battery Doorbell Plus bundled with a Spotlight Cam Plus Battery usually goes for $299, but was marked down to $219.99.

Those deals were available both from Ring’s website and Amazon, Ring’s parent company.

Amazon Echo

Speaking of Amazon, let’s talk about one of the most popular smart home product lines today from the e-commerce giant: the Amazon Echo.

Powered by Alexa, Amazon Echo smart devices and displays give smart home owners the ability to control a wide variety of smart products with their voices. And since they’re from Amazon, you can count on them to offer huge markdowns on Black Friday.

Last year, Echo speakers were up to 71-percent off. For instance, an Echo Pop (the smallest smart speaker from Amazon) paired with a smart bulb from TP-Link cost only $17.99, a 71-percent discount from the original $62 price tag.

Individual Echo smart speakers and displays also went on sale. Both were up to 60-percent off, headlined by the Amazon Echo (4th gen) that went for $54.99 (45-percent off) and the Echo Show 8 that was marked down to $54.99 (58-percent off). (Read our Echo Show 8 review to find out why that’s a good deal.)

Google Nest

Over to the other side of the smart home fence is Google Nest, Amazon’s starkest competition. Google Nest makes a number of smart speakers and smart displays that compete directly with Echo devices. And instead of Alexa, Google employs its own smart voice assistant: Google Assistant.

Google’s Black Friday sale discounted the prices of both the Nest Hub and the Nest Hub Max, giving $50 and $100 off, respectively. The smaller Nest Hub cost $49.99, while its larger sibling, the Nest Hub Max, cost $129.99 last Black Friday. There were no deals for the smart speakers, unfortunately, but there were a few other deals for people that are serious about smartening up their home, including:

  • Nest Wifi Pro 2-pack (mesh router): $199.99 ($100 off)
  • Nest Learning Thermostat: $179 ($70 off)
  • Nest Thermostat: $89.99 ($40 off)


SimpliSafe App Motion Detection Settings

When it comes to DIY smart security, very few can match what SimpliSafe offers. As we expanded on in our SimpliSafe review, SimpliSafe is capable of integrating with voice assistants, smart locks, and several other smart home products.

Last year, all SimpliSafe systems were 60-percent off, plus you’d receive a free outdoor camera (valued at $169) if you bought a SimpliSafe security system. The discounted starter packages also came with a 30-day trial to the Fast Protect plan, which is the only plan that allows SimpliSafe users to integrate smart devices like Nest thermostats. With the discount, equipment packages started at just under $100.


The abode App

With CUE automations, a feature we talked about in our abode review, abode supports a comprehensive list of smart home automation functions. To use CUE automations, though, you’ll need an abode system, starting with either the Gateway or iota hub.

The latter is a special hub equipped with a camera and sensors, so it’s an all-in-one device that can really up your smart home game. For last year’s Black Friday sale, which the company extended until Cyber Monday, a starter kit that usually costs $999 was marked down to $379.99. This kit includes the iota hub (with built-in camera and motion sensor), four door and window sensors, a keypad, a glass break sensor, and a key fob.

The iota hub works with a number of smart home standards, including Z-Wave, Zigbee, Alexa, Google Assistant, and HomeKit.


Arming with ADT Home Security Control Panel

ADT may be a century-and-a-half-old company, but its security systems come equipped with the latest in smart home security technology. ADT systems work with Alexa and Google Assistant, smart thermostats, smart locks, smart lights, and many more smart home products, as we’ve highlighted in our ADT review.

For last year’s Black Friday, all ADT systems were 40 percent off. That discount included any equipment you added to the pre-customized ADT packages. Also worth pointing out: ADT and Google are partners now, so you can actually buy Google equipment from ADT, including its cameras, smart thermostats, and smart displays. And yes, last year folks got the same 40-percent discount when they bought them through ADT.

That was one of the biggest smart home and home security deals we saw last year, so if you want to keep an eye on ADT this year, here’s our ADT Black Friday deal page.


Frontpoint Mobile App

Frontpoint is another one of those security systems that work well with smart home devices. In our Frontpoint review, we tested its capabilities in working with Alexa, Google Assistant, smart locks, smart thermostats, and we’ve found it quite capable.

During last year’s Black Friday, all Frontpoint equipment was 45-percent off, but to get started building a Frontpoint system, you’ll need a starter package. The good news? Those packages were up to 70-percent off. The most basic package cost just $129. Go to our Frontpoint pricing page to learn more about Frontpoint’s prices.


Vivint Base Hub

Last but not least, we can’t talk about smart home security without mentioning Vivint. Vivint security systems are hands-down some of the most advanced security systems that offer smart home features. Powered by a touchscreen control panel, Vivint systems offers the best of both the worlds of security systems and smart home systems.

Last year Vivint offered free equipment and a $50 gift card to new customers. They needed to spend at least $599.99 on Vivint equipment to qualify, but the freebies added up to $300 in value. The free equipment was either a Vivint Video Doorbell Pro or Spotlight Pro, both of which cost $249 and are top-of-the-line of their respective fields.


Starting a smart home may seem like a big undertaking, but you can seriously diminish the costs if you buy your devices on Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2024. For more information on how to set up your smart home, read our home automation guide.
