Smart home tech is getting bigger every year. What started out as just turning on your lights from an app has extended to smart heating, security, and even kitchens, while virtual assistants like Amazon Alexa and Siri are now trying to work their way into every room in your home.

Still, replacing every appliance you own with a smart version could quickly get very expensive, so it makes sense to pick up smart tech at smart prices. We're rounding up the best savings we can find right here.

What to expect

First up, smart speakers like the Amazon Echo and Google Home often see price cuts, especially as Amazon and Google duke it out to provide your virtual assistant of choice. They're both keen to get as many smart devices into homes as possible before Apple's HomePod arrives.

Third-Party speakers deals

Third-party speaker manufacturers with smart support are also sometimes discounted, though they're less aggressive. More expensive smart home products like thermostats and full lighting kits see big offers, but keep an eye on smaller products like smart plugs or single smart bulbs - the savings might be smaller, but if you're planning on picking up a few it can really add up.
