It’s real. Prime Day 2019 is here, and the deals keep flowing from Amazon’s cavernous warehouses. For many items, the products will be at reduced prices for the entire duration of the July 15 and 16 event, but still others may have much shorter fuses. Here’s an up-to-the-minute list of our best smart tech and other just-plain-smart picks, as we have articulated over several recent articles. Plus, we have mined several more late-breaking items of interest and appended them to the deal inventory.
Prime Day can be quite fluid, so the best deals can change throughout the two days. Here are some additional products we like that you may be interested in for your home, all at lower-than-usual prices.
Yale Assure SL Smart Lock
We are big fans of these Yale smart locks, and the Yale Assure SL is available at a good deal to add to its appeal. The smart lock has a compact digital touch screen display, and is entirely keyless. And unique to Yale, you can still use the lock in the event the 4 AA batteries go dead, by simply snapping a 9-volt battery to the bottom of the display from the outside.
The Yale Assure SL will easily retrofit in place of most U.S. spec deadbolts, aided by the well-done Bilt app for step-by-step install guidance. With its included Z-Wave module, the lock can also be smoothly integrated into Samsung SmartThings and many other smart home ecosystems for automations. See our in-depth coverage on Yale and related smart locks for a thorough look at them.
Nest x Yale Smart Lock
We rarely see the Nest x Yale smart lock on sale, but that’s all changed with Prime Day 2019. You can grab the only Nest smart lock at a special Prime subscriber cost. These smart locks blend the best of the Yale smart lock hardware with the Nest software ecosystem, yielding buttery-smooth integration within the entire family of Google Nest connected home products.
