Amazon Prime Day: Find the best deals

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Amazon Prime Day is upon us once again, and with it more deals on smart home products than you can shake an Echo at – smart speakers, TV streamers, smart lights and more.

Amazon has slashed prices on everything from smart cameras to thermostats.

Some of those deals will be available all through the day, but a lot will be “lightning deals”, which are only live for a short period of time. So bookmark this page, because we’ll be updating it through the day as those deals come along.

Below you’ll find a roundup of all the deals – some already live – on smart home products. There will be plenty to sift through, so we’ve made the job easier by breaking it all down into different categories.

If you're looking to upgrade your mesh Wi-Fi, expect some deals this Prime Day. Amazon has announced it will be selling TP-Link's M9 Plus mesh Wi-Fi system, from 10 July as part of the Prime Day celebrations, although right now it doesn't look like it'll be getting a price reduction from $299. It does look like Amazon will be one of the few – maybe only – place you'll be able to buy it though. TP-Link had a decent sale on smart plugs last year too.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

The biggest shopping day of the year, after Black Friday, basically. Prime Day is huge, offering discounts on products all across Amazon. But there’s a catch: you need to be a Prime member to take part in Prime Day.

The good news is that, if you’re not a member, you can sign up for a month’s free trial. Otherwise an annual subscription costs £79. Last year we saw Amazon offering slashed-price Prime memberships too, which could happen again.

Also remember that it won’t just be Amazon that you need to keep an eye on, as other retailers like to get in on the festivities with their own deals. We’ll be keeping you up to date with those too.

When does Amazon Prime Day start?

The action kicks off Monday 16 July at 12pm PT/3pm ET in the US and 12pm on Monday 16 July in the UK. It's open to all in the UK, US, Spain, France, Germany, Japan, Italy, Canada and Austria. The whole thing runs for a day and a half.
