This year, if you’re looking to hand out smart devices, one of the best ways to save is by shopping Amazon’s bundle deals. Amazon has paired some of its most popular devices—including its top-rated Echo Dot—with beloved smart home gadgets, all for some low, low prices.
For instance, you’ll be able to nab a 3rd Generation Echo Dot as well as a Ring Video Doorbell for just $70 (originally $100), which is $15 less than buying the two separately. The Ring Video Doorbell allows for two-way talk and is capable of advanced motion detection. You can even opt for real-time notifications sent directly to your phone. Plus, it’s compatible with Alexa devices.
Over 21,000 Amazon shoppers have given this set a five-star rating, with one shopper writing, “This is the Mighty Mouse of doorbells. Mine is connected to a pair of Echo Shows and it gives great warnings and connectivity through my wifi network. I like the fact that Ring has a network to report any problems, suspicious prowlers, lost pets, porch pirates, etc to Ring doorbell people. If you want security and peace of mind, get one.”
Shoppers should also consider the Echo Dot Bundle with an Amazon Smart Plug, which is priced at just $50 (the lowest it’s been since Prime Day.) The 3rd generation Echo Dot comes with a smart plug that lets you add voice control to any outlet. Schedule lights, fans, and other appliances to turn on through voice control, or from the included smart app. Plus you’ll be able to read through tips about how to save energy—and ultimately lower your utility bill.
Another bundle to look at is the Echo Dot and Sengled Bluetooth Light Bulb. This deal includes a 4th generation Echo Dot as well as a handy smart light bulb. Normally the Echo Dot is $60 while the light bulb is $10, but you’ll be able to grab both for just $60. To use it, simply plug it in, allow Alexa to discover it over bluetooth, and then you’ll be able to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the lights” without having to get out of bed. If you don’t want the newest Echo Dot, you can also grab the 3rd generation version, along with the Sengled Bluetooth color bulb, for just $25.
“I bought this for Christmas,” one five-star reviewer shared. “So far it’s one of the best investments I have made. Alexa works great with all of our smart bulbs and switches and other devices [and] controls most of the light in our home.” They added, “[I] already bought a second one for our bedroom.”
