Stellar Amazon tech deals
Your first move into a smart home
Smart homes are definitely the wave of the future. Many household items are now able to connect to the internet and can be controlled with your gadget.
Thermostats, light bulbs, robotic vacuum cleaners and door locks just to name a few. But things really get easy when you can control them with the sound of your voice. That's why it's a good idea to add a virtual assistant to every smart home.
This Amazon Echo (2nd Generation) is a must-have if you're planning to smarten up your home. Right now, you can get one from Amazon at $25 off the regular price.
Turn up the heat without kicking off the blanket
Now that you have Amazon's Alexa helping around the house, let's put her to work. This Nest learning thermostat gives you easy temperature control for every room in the house.
Even better, it works with Alexa. So next time you wake up and there's a chill in the air, you don't have to crawl out of bed to turn up the heat. Just ask Alexa to adjust it for you.
The Nest thermostat can also learn your habits and start to save you money by automatically adjusting the temperature. Order one from Amazon right now and you'll save over $40 from the regular price.
Let the robot do the cleaning
I have to admit, this is a personal favorite of mine. Vacuuming the house is one chore that I never enjoyed.
This iRobot Roomba 960 robot vacuum changed everything. Its cleaning system picks up dirt, dust and even pet hair. It cleans under furniture and other hard-to-reach areas.
The Roomba works on carpeted and hardwood floors, so it works no matter which floor surface is in your home. Plus, it's compatible with Alexa so you can control the Roomba with your voice.
This model is currently on sale through Amazon for $150 off the regular price. Give it a try, you'll love it.
Time to start streaming
Cable and satellite prices keep climbing, which is why millions of people are turning to streaming services. So, if you've been thinking about joining the revolution, now is the time.
This Roku Ultra streaming media player will help you get started. It features HD/4K/HDR streaming, JBL headphones for private listening and a voice remote.
It's Roku's most powerful and feature-packed media player. And right now, you can pick one up from Amazon for 20% off the regular price.
Go wireless with music and podcasts
If you haven't joined the wireless revolution, now's your chance. These Powerbeats3 wireless earphones feature up to 12 hours of battery life to last through multiple workouts. They also have secure-fit earhooks to maximize comfort and stability.
You can use them to take phone calls, control your music and favorite podcasts. If the battery is low, use its Fast Fuel technology that gives you 1 hour of playback in just 5 minutes of charging.
These wireless earphones normally cost $199.95, but are on sale through Amazon right now for just $89.99. That's over $109 in savings. Act fast, this sale won't last long.
