Smart home devices, in general, are getting better, and they’re getting easier to integrate into your lifestyle. That’s true no matter what ecosystem of products you live in — whether it be Google Home, Amazon Alexa, or Apple’s HomeKit. Or, for the first year, maybe you’re thinking about smart home devices that are likely to get Matter support. Matter is set to roll out, and while you likely won’t see too many Matter-compatible devices just yet, you may see devices that companies have promised will support Matter down the line.

There are quite a number of things to consider before you buy a new smart home device. Perhaps the most important thing to consider is what smart home ecosystem you prefer to use. If you tend to use Google Assistant, you’ll want to make sure it’s compatible with that ecosystem. The same is true for Apple’s HomeKit and Amazon’s Alexa.

This year, Black Friday falls on November 25, which means that the big event is here. Here’s everything you need to know about Black Friday smart home deals.

When is Black Friday?

This year, Black Friday is on November 25, so the big event is here. Cyber Monday will take place on Monday, November 28. Check out our full guide on the best Cyber Monday smart home deals here.

How to get the best Black Friday smart home deals

Buying smart home devices can be tricky at times. After all, not all smart home devices work well together. As mentioned, you’ll want to make sure that you buy smart home products that are compatible with your preferred ecosystem.

Beyond that, getting the best smart home device for you really depends on the kind of product that you get. If you’re buying a smart security camera, for example, you’ll want a camera that offers a solid video quality and maybe some extra smart features. If you buy a smart lock, you’ll want to make sure that it works with your deadbolt or you’re willing to replace your deadbolt. Check out our guide on the best smart home devices to learn more.

Black Friday vs Cyber Monday smart home deals

So, what’s better: Black Friday or Cyber Monday smart home deals? Ultimately, both days will offer excellent smart home deals.

While Black Friday falls on November 25, Cyber Monday falls on November 28. Traditionally, Black Friday was the time to get the best in-store deals, while Cyber Monday was where you could find the best online deals. Recently, however, the two have been merging — and you’ll find awesome Black Friday deals online too.

If you find a great deal on a smart home product that you’ve been keeping an eye on on Black Friday, we recommend buying it. It’s entirely possible that the product will get a better discount on Cyber Monday, but it’s also possible that the deal will end and it will only be available at full price after Black Friday.

We also recommend making a list of all the smart home devices you actually want. That way you can seek out the products on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and see whether they’re on sale or not.

Where are the best Black Friday smart home deals?

We got Black Friday smart home deals from all kinds of retailers, and it’s hard to say which retailer will offer the “best” of them. Of course, that does change a little depending on the kinds of devices you want to get. For example, if you want Amazon devices or devices from an Amazon brand, like Ring or Eero, then the best deals are likely to be on Amazon.

Generally, however, we think you’ll be able to get great deals from Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, and more.

Should I wait until Black Friday to buy smart home devices?

Yes, but given the fact that the Black Friday shopping event is here, you can get the deals right away.

Last year’s Black Friday smart home deals

Last year, we saw tons of great Black Friday smart home deals, from retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and more. For example, we saw deals on Blink security cameras, August smart locks, smart home hubs, and more.

Generally speaking, smart home devices have been getting cheaper and cheaper, while at the same time getting better and better. As a result, if you haven’t already bought into the smart home, this might be the year to do so.
