With the UK heading toward the end of the August bank holiday, Amazon UK is kicking off its End of Summer Sale. Yes, it's far too early to be ringing the death knell of the British summer, but the good news is the sale brings with it plenty of tasty discounts.
As is typical with Amazon sales, a whole range of Amazon devices has been discounted, which means prices on Echo smart speakers, Fire TV streamers, and a multitude of smart security cameras have been slashed. You can also make some big savings on Philips Hue bulbs if you want to pick up some extra smart bulbs.
We've rounded up the best deals for you below, and we'll keep this page updated with deals as they appear until the End of Summer Sale finishes on August 30.
The newest Echo device to be released and a cheaper alternative to the Echo Show, the Echo Show 5 works great with Amazon's Ring and Blink security cameras (coincidentally also on sale), as well as displaying rich information on its screen. This is the first time the smart display has been discounted in the UK.
Echo Plus with free Hue bulb
The Echo Plus differs from the standard Amazon Echo because it includes built-in support for Zigbee smart home devices, so no need for a separate hub. If you have light bulbs that use the Zigbee standard this means you can cut down on the clutter. This bundle gets you a discount, plus a free Zigbee-based Philips Hue bulb.
Ring is an Amazon-owned company, so there's little surprise its range of smart doorbells and security cameras are discounted. If you're looking to bolster your home security, now's a good time to get started.
Blink XT 2
The new Blink XT2 hasn't been out long in the UK so this 20% discount is the first reduction it's seen. It's a decent saving, too, at 20% off. This indoor/outdoor security . camera has a two-year battery and two-way audio. It of course plays nice with Amazon Alexa, too.
Fire TV Stick
Amazon's Fire TV Stick comes with an Alexa-enabled remote, meaning you can use it to control the rest of your smart home just like an Echo device. You can also use Alexa to output the video from Ring or Blink smart security cameras to your television, making it a great addition to your smart home.
There are plenty of discounted Philips Hue smart bulbs in the sale, too. So whether you're just getting started with smart lighting or adding in extra bulbs, now's a great time to pick some up with a discount.
