Smart home deals

While they certainly aren’t for everyone, the usefulness of Amazon’s Echo devices makes them an excellent value, especially if you have an older model to trade in. Currently, many Echo devices — including the standard fourth-generation Echo, the Echo Show 5, and Echo Show 8 — are selling for the same prices we saw on Black Friday. If you pair that with the potential 25 percent discount you’ll receive when you trade in an older Echo device tied to your account, you’ve got a great way to upgrade your home automation setup.

Amazon’s Echo devices are available at a variety of retailers for the same price, but note that if you’re planning to trade in an older device, you can only do so through Amazon directly.

The latest model of the Echo opts for a spherical build and better sound while maintaining its approachable price tag.

Echo Show 5 (second-gen)

We consider the second-generation Echo Show 5 to be one of the best smart displays you can buy. It’s an ideal smart display for your nightstand, one that allows you to set alarms using your voice, play music, and get the weather report, among other things. When the alarm goes off, you merely need to tap the top of the Echo Show 5 to snooze it.
