Update: This deal has expired and is no longer available. With Amazon’s annual Prime Day just a few days away and the celebration of July 4th in the States, we are already starting to see some all time lows for some HomeKit staples. This week’s deal include Belkin’s popular Wemo Mini Smart Plug, Nanoleaf’s Aurora and Canvas starter kits, Ecobee’s latest Thermostat and Insignia’s Garage Door Controller.
Wemo Mini Smart Plug – $17.99 at Amazon
Belkin’s Popular Wemo Mini Smart Plug is one of the more compact plugs on the market, making it a solid choice for those that do not want to block both of their precious power outlets. The Wemo Mini Smart Plug uses Wi-Fi to establish a direction connection to HomeKit, without the need of a separate hub, and it is also compatible with Amazon’s Alexa and the Google Assistant.
Emerson Sensi Thermostat – $89 at Amazon
The Sensi Thermostat is Wi-Fi connected but takes on the form of a traditional programmable thermostat. This thermostat features a large LCD screen with physical buttons for adjustments on the unit itself. However, it also supports HomeKit, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant for voice and App control.
Nanoleaf Aurora Rythym Edition or Canvas Starter Kit – $160 at Nanoleaf
Nanoleaf is offering customers 20% off of their line of connected smart lighting, with coupon code FOURTHOFJULY. This rare discount brings both the Nanoleaf Aurora Rythym and Canvas starter kits down to $160, which are the lowest prices that we have seen. The Aurora starter kit includes 9 triangular shaped light panels as well as the Rhythm module that allows the panels to react to sound in your home. The Canvas kit includes the same number of panels but takes on a square form factor with a touch panel surface that has a microphone built in for visualizing your tunes.
Ecobee Smart Thermostat (latest generation) – $249 + Free $50 gift card at Best Buy
Ecobee’s latest generation thermostat features a re-designed glass exterior, and an updated room temperature sensor. The room temperature sensor has a new magnetic base and a sleeker design in addition to humidity, motion, and temperature sensors that the company is famous for. The ecobee 4 also includes Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant built in, putting adjustments just a shout away.
Insignia Wi-Fi Garage Door Controller – $49.99 at Best Buy
Insignia’s Wi-Fi Garage Door Controller is a low cost HomeKit only solution for those looking to add some smarts to their garage. This controller includes everything you need to get up running, including the control unit, door tilt sensor, wiring, and even a handy screwdriver. Since this device wires directly to your existing garage door opener, it is compatible with most major brands as long as you have a separate remote that does not have a learn button on it already mounted in your garage.
