Best early Prime Day 2021 deals: Smart home devices

Smart home gadgets are all the rage, but it’s a slippery slope. As soon as you’re done installing your first gadget, you’re in the market for the next, and it can get pretty expensive. 

Amazon Prime Day is a good time to pick up  your next smart home device for less, because there are some fantastic deals out there on a whole range of devices.

With that in mind, I’ve trawled through the unbelievable number of deals that are available over Prime Day 2021 — tens of thousands! — and distilled them down into a handful of the best.

Deals come and go over the two days, and I’ll be updating this post with fresh deals, so keep checking back. Also, if you find a good deal I’ve missed, feel free to drop me a note (a Twitter DM probably gets the quickest response).
